- TLTobiasWritten on November 21, 20174.0 - GoodThe Transylvania Tale tour was fantastic. The destinations were all wonderful and the group was great (although it helped that it was a small group of only 6 people). Romania is one of the best places I've visited, but Bulgaria is also very beautiful. Even the 7-hour bus ride at the end to Istanbul didn't seem that long! The hotels were mostly very comfortable and in good locations. Some of the local drivers we had were questionable but the transport was smooth and comfortable.Show detailed ratingsTucan Travel commented on this reviewHi Tobias, we are so happy you joined us on the Transylvania Tour!
