    Great tour with the major sites in Transylvania. The accommodations were elegant for the cost of the tour. Some of them restored historic buildings with painted walls. The food's not bad either. Our guide Andrei took care of us from arrival till departure.

    I was more impressed by Poenari fortress than by Bran Castle, even though I climbed those steps. Omg! Now that I look back I don’t know how I did that. Great tour!
