Morning pick up by your Romanian private tour guide (English speaking) at your hotel. Leave Bucharest for Sinaia - one of the famous Carpathian Mountains resorts. Named after St. Catherine Monastery on Mount Sinai, Sinaia became the unofficial capital of the Kingdom of Romania towards the end of the 19th century. The Orient Express use to regularly call here and it still does once a year on its way from Paris to Constantinople.

Take an orientation tour of including a view of the Casino building inspired by the one in Monte Carlo and a visit to Sinaia Orthodox Monastery. Next is one of the most important tourist attractions of the country: Peles Castle and Gardens , the former royal residence of King Charles I of Romania and known as one of the most beautiful summer royal residences in Europe. Then cross the mountains into Transylvania to the village of Bran. The attraction is the medieval Bran Castle also known as Dracula Castle. The castle was built in 1377 to safeguard the trading route between Transylvania and Wallachia to later be turned into a royal residence under Queen Marie of Romania. The connections between this place and Vlad the Impaler Dracula is still under debate, but the castle is definitely worth a visit.

Enjoy cheese tasting on the premises. Continue your Romania private guided tour to the nearby town of Brasov with the Black Church and one of the best preserved medieval quarter and fortifications. The tour will include the Council Square, Schei Quarter and the First School in Romanian language, the Rope Street and Catherine's Gate. View of the Brasov 1901 synagogue. Enjoy Brasov’s lovely pedestrian area of the Old Town with its many shops, traditional restaurants and outdoor cafes. Return to Bucharest where your Romania trip ends.
