Bucharest

3.5 star rating: Good (3.6/5 based on 5 reviews)
Five star

i found this guided tour on Bucharest on the web, while preparing to visit Romania. the price suited me and i ordered it. tour organizer answered for every question i asked, and provided all the information i needed. our guide, Roberto, arrived just in time, as scheduled, to our hotel and called my cell to ask where am i. he took me and my wife threw the old city to his van, on the way telling history of the city, and showing its most popular and interesting sites. next we had approximately a hour long tour around Bucharest, viewing parliament palace, cathedral and other main city sites. after that we visited village museum where we had free time for another hour to walk by ourselves. at the end, our guide asked where to drop us (to return to our hotel where we met, or would we like walk around). we thanked him and left. to concluded it was very interesting tour giving main picture of Bucharest and our guide gave us a great time.

The day tour to so-called "Dracula's Castle" was a Big Con. There was a Count Dracula, but his castle was much more north in Transylvania than that to which we were taken. At the other castle, Peres, we had to wait more than one hour before being admitted, such was the volume of tours visiting. We, who believed we were going to see Dracula's Castle should have had our money refunded, and the tour organizers should re-name their tour.
