Sinaia - "the Pearl of the Carpathians" – is a popular place for any season you might travel in, as in the winter the city looks like a ski resort from the Alps and during the summer the mountain resort is transformed into
an oasis for the many people coming here to hide from the high temperatures of the cities and enjoying the beautiful scenery and the coolness of the mountains. Therefore, King Carol I of Romania fell in love with the area
and decided to build his home here, the stunning Peles Castle.
Enjoy a guided extended tour of the palace where you can marvel on the beautiful interiors, german handcrafted furniture or the impressive medieval weapons collection of King Carol I. On the outside you can admire the exterior
gardens, the castle's park and terraces, with flower beds and fountains, turrets, pavilions, galleries and balconies concealed by ivy.
The tour also includes a visit at Sinaia Monastery, a Christian Orthodox church built in 1695 in byzantine architectural style.

Gal from UK: My wife and I booked the trip on a Beautiful Saturday and it was well worth it. Our guide Marius picked us up promptly at 8:00 in the morning - Car was very clean and comfortable. Marius was a first rate
guide that provided us with much information on Romania and the places we visited. He went out of his way to get my wife and I to the front of line ups for our tours. Marius thank you - you are our new Best Friend in Romania. We
first visited the Peles castle with its ornate and furnished interior. Then off for lunch at a nice restaurant chosen by Marius in Bran. Then a short walk to the Bran/Dracula castle perched on a rocky out crop. Very nice interior and grounds
- the favourite of Queen Mary - fascinating family history. Then we were off to Braşov for a quick old town center tour and a relaxing beer in the main square. It is a long full day trip and at the mercy of traffic and construction -
we were delayed on way home due to a serious accident. All in all a very worthwhile trip that all should make when visiting Bucharest/Romania. Now the following day we are off to see the Bon Jovi Concert In Center of Bucharest.
Then off through Central Romania to Arad in the North - this is a beautiful country with lots to see and do.
Curri from USA: Had a great tour with Toni Tatar. Toni was very attentive and went out of his way to make sure we enjoyed the tour. He is very knowledgeable about Romania and shared a lot of information with us.
I think one of my favorite parts of the trip was eating lunch with Toni after our visit to Bran castle. Toni recommended some delicious traditional dishes and we got a chance to ask a lot of questions and learn so much about this
Giuseppe from Italy: Toni gave us an amazing tour! We came to Romania as part of our honeymoon and we couldn't have been with a better guide to make our trip unforgettable! Toni Tatar truly does care about sharing the history
and culture of Romania ! And went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable and having a good time! Would 1000% recommend. Thanks Toni again for everything!
Soe from USA: Toni Tatar was an excellent tour guide. He was awesome throughout the whole tour and not only that he went out of his way to arrange a tour on the following day. He was friendly, knowledgeable and kind. He not only
took us to all the places but he made sure we were comfortable. This was one of the best tours I’ve taken. He also show us the most famous dessert in Romania.
Catherine V.: „It was wonderful! Toni was our guide and it was a wonderful visit tour! It's easy to communicate with him in English. What a crazy day, he knows so much thing about Romania, I was totally facinated! He is completly
passionate! We really appreciate this tour, it was an amazing experience! Toni Tatar and his colleagues are so friendly and you can feel how they love to do the best for their customers. It's one of our best memories and you hope to come back as soon as
possible for discovering more and more about Romania!”
Christopher from Chicago: „A day well spent! While this ends up being a long day, it's well worth it to have a driver/guide to maximize your time in Transylvania. Our guide, Marius, was great. Very friendly, helpful and easy
going. He picked us up on time at 8 am at our hotel and took us to Pelisor and Peles castles, then on to Bran Castle for a nice lunch and then tour, and finally to Brasov, where we walked around for about 45 minutes. We had a few stops along the
way at Romania's amazing petrol stations to stretch, get coffee, use the toilet, etc. Note that the drive both coming and going can be rather long due to traffic (it took us 3:45 hrs to get back from Brasov), so bring something to amuse yourself in
Vicky from UK: „We took a pirvate tour to the two castles in Transylvania: the bran castle and the peles castle. We also visited Brasov. The car was very comfortable and clean and our driver-guide Marius was very professional.

Private day trip to the Black Sea Tour
Fannye from Sweeden: We went on a private tour to the back sea with sweet Toni Tatar. Toni was a very nice and passionette guide. We went around Constanta and then to the beach.We had lunch with toni in constanta and it was oneof the
best trips of our lives.
Edmundo from New Mexico: „Highly Recommend Toni's Crafted Tours Romania! My wife and I found Crafted Tours on Tripadvisor and based on reviews we read and a phone call I had with Toni, the owner, we pre-booked this tour
with him a month before we left for on our trip. The morning of our tour Toni met us in our hotel lobby and we took off in a very clean late model SUV for a pleasant 2+ hour drive to Constanta and the Black Sea. Toni is very articulate, patient,
informative and pleasant. The tour was great but Toni Tatar made it that much more enjoyable. He is trustworthy and a man of his word.”

fish dishes. We had the chance to get a nice swim on a virgin beach of the Black Sea. Toni Tatar is very friendly and good driver. We will come back for sure.”
