If you’re interested in Transylvania’s Gothic heritage, this private Dracula-focused tour is for you. While you receive the undivided attention of a private guide, follow a customized itinerary that encompasses Poienari Fortress and Curtea de Arges, lesser-known locations far from the tourist trail. A guide helps you distinguish fact from fiction, and convenient hotel pickup and drop-off are included.

What to Expect
Your tour begins with hotel pickup in Bucharest, where you board a private vehicle destined for your first stop: Targoviste Princely Court, the real court of Vlad the Impaler. Admire the Transylvanian Alps, as you take a whistle-stop tour of Targoviste town, which is also home to Chindia Tower. Next up is Poienari Fortress, which sits on a clifftop overlooking the Arges Gorges. After climbing 1,480 steps to the top, you’re rewarded with panoramic views of the surroundings. Continue to Curtea de Arges, a city in the lower Carpathian Mountains, for a walking tour. The tour concludes with drop-off back in Bucharest.

Gabriel was very knowledgable on many subjects (religion, politics, flora, fauna, architecture). He was also very responsible and drove safely - so important when driving back late in the evening through snowy mountains!
