Bucharest, Brasov & Bears

7 Day Tour, from £1595 per person
Perfect for the first-time visitor to Romania, this tour explores the major cities of Bucharest and Brasov, and ticks off some of the country's best-known castles. Set to a stunning Carpathian Mountain backdrop, the spectacularly-designed Peles Castle was once the summer residence of Romanian royalty. Tour the estate and castle before spending time wandering the hallowed halls of hill-top Bran Castle, home of Transylvania's most famous resident, Dracula. 
Meet some of Romania's less-spooky characters at the Liberty Bear Sanctuary. Wild brown bears inhabited the country long before Bram Stoker created the legend of Count Dracula, and Romania is one of the last places in Europe where these gentle giants still roam in the wild. At the bear sanctuary, learn about the conservation efforts being made to protect some of their natural environment.
This is a tailor-made itinerary with English speaking driver/guide.
