Loved the castles in Transylvania!!
Robert_I, Jun 2023
Great tour guide! We got to see a lot in one day for a very reasonable cost! It was an all day tour and we loved every minute of it!
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Thank you, Robert! Travel well always, best regards!
Best guide I ever had
Benoit_L, May 2023
Florin is one of the best guide I ever had. He is very knowledgeable about Romanian history and culture. He provided the big picture and on demand answered any query. My 6-year old child learnt a lot also during the visits. He is speaking fluently English, Spanish and other languages.
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you, Benoit, for one of the best reviews I ever had :), to keep in line with your too kind description of our tour. Best regards to you and your family! Florin
Absolutely brilliant day,...
Alex_C, May 2023
Absolutely brilliant day, Florin was brilliant and timed everything perfectly so that we never had to queue/get stuck in traffic. The tour itself is amazing, each location so different and breath taking, I would highly recommend!
Response from Host, May 2023
Thank you, Alex! Glad you had a great day, best regards from Brasov!
Excellent tour
Robert_P, Apr 2023
Very good. Nice small group with excellent guide. A good way to see all three castles from Brasov and a good option if you don't have a car
Brilliant trip
kara_s, Apr 2023
Our tour guide Florin was amazing. We met at the collection point and from the start to the end of the trip he was telling us recommendations and interesting facts about the area and the castles. He got us to Bran castle early and we were the first ones there with the place to ourselves! Florin also came into the castles with us and gave us lots of interesting facts inside. Great trip, great day and great tour guide. Would definitely recommend.

Thank you, Kara! Travel well always, best regards from Brasov!
A small group tour through highlight of Transylvania
Susan_P, Mar 2023
Florin was our guide. He did a brilliant job of doing the tour in both Spanish and English and was a safe driver. Brasov is a great place to start a historical tour of Transylvania. It is a beautiful city. Both Bran Castle and Peles Castle are worth the trip. It was nice being in a small group and not on one of the large tour buses. The experience was much more personal and Florin did a great job of answering questions and then interpreting them into the other language. We would highly recommend this day trip from Brasov with Flip Flop Tours.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you, Susan and Tim! Travel well, regards! Florin
A great experience if you're looking to really understand more about true Romanian history!
Elizabeth_H, Dec 2022
My husband and I had a wonderful day with Florin seeing these interesting and beautiful sights. Florin was so knowledgeable about each place and the history of Romania in general. He was also able to give his own insights from personal experience. He worked well around the challenges of crowds and we had plenty of time for seeing the sights. This was a great experience!
Essence of Romania in a day
Rumana_P, Jul 2022
We had an amazing time exploring the castles with Florin. He is a well-read and well-travelled person, with a sound knowledge about the history and importance of the castles, and Romania in general. He answered all our questions enthusiastically. At the end, we knew more about Romania, it's history, culture and traditions. Being from India, we felt we made a good friend in Romania. I would highly recommend a trip guided by Florin. The trip is well-planned, with sufficient time for photos, snacks, and souvenir shopping. The overall coordination was super easy too... Hats off to Florin :) thank you viator :)
Response from Host, Jul 2022
Thank you, Rumana & friends, wonderful to have you as guests, indeed you made a new friend in Brasov, Romania. Have safe and beautiful journeys always! ♥️
Wonderful Experience
Nancy_D, May 2022
Florin was one of the best tour guides I’ve had! He has extensive knowledge of the area and explained everything perfectly. My friend and I had a wonderful experience and I will be calling for a tour with Florin on my next visit!
Response from Host, May 2022
Hi Nancy and Linda! Hope you had a great trip back, thank you again, wish you more beautiful trips ahead! Greetings from Brasov! Florin
Knowledgeable Guide Makes A Tour Great
Betty_C, May 2022
Our guide, Florin, was cheery and very knowledgeable. I learnt a lot from him on this tour. A good guide makes all the difference when one visits Bran and Peles because he is able to tell you so much more information than what is written on the display stands, and that is exactly what Florin did. The second stop at Rasnov seemed a little bit of a waste to me since the place wasn't open, so I wouldn't have missed it if we skipped that stop. Peles was super crowded by the time we got there later in the day, so consider going on a weekday perhaps.
Response from Host, May 2022
Thank you for the kind review, Betty and Roger! Wish you a safe trip, great having you as guests! Regards,Florin.
Florin is the definition...
Marcelo_T, Oct 2021
Florin is the definition of a great guide: good aura, kind, respectful and knows the history of the visited placas. Good pick-up spot, on time. Must do tour if you are near Braşov
Response from Host, Oct 2021
Obrigado, Marcelo! Travel always well, it was great knowing you and Giovana!
Carine_J, Aug 2020
We started our tour with the visit of Peles...and we were very impressed. Just marvellous. Our guide (Florin) is very competent and knows his subject perfectly..He could tell us words about each rooms. It was the same for Bran castle as well. We recommand this unforgettable tour
Response from Host, Aug 2020
Merci, Carine and family! Thank you for booking, especially in this unusual 2020 season! Personally I’m glad it was an unforgettable experience, so good to hear that! Thank you for your patience and understanding, greetings from Brasov, Transylvania, Romania! Florin
Amazing tour!
karlylejones17, Feb 2020
We could not have chosen a better tour to take while here in Romania. Florin was an outstanding tour guide who exemplified Romanian pride in throughout every step of the tour. He was extremely accommodating and knowledgeable. We are so happy to have spent the day with Florin exploring Braşov.
Fantastic Tour!
Brandon_W, Dec 2019
Our tour guide was so accommodating. We had actually misunderstood the booking and we’re running late to the meeting point. Our guide was gracious enough to wait for us! It was a small group of 4 and therefore our guide was able to give us his full attention! He was so knowledgeable and took his time explaining everything! Very friendly and hospitable! Would recommend his services to all!!
Brilliant trip!
jeroen3788, Nov 2019
Fabulous trip with a very nice and knowledgeable guide to 3 amazing castles. I felt like a kid in a candystore!
Can't recommend it enough!
Valentini_K, Nov 2019
The tour covers the peles and bran castles and Rasnov fortress. Guide was friendly, accommodating, told us everything we needed to know and was so helpful and nice. Well planned , we even managed to beat Sunday traffic. Overall a very enjoyable experience .. We had a lovely time and felt like we fit in so many things in just a few hours. You should definitely book it!
Jan_L, Oct 2019
Florin was a superb guide. We loved every minute of this tour and I would highly recommend it.Fabulous!
Can't be better, very satisfied with the quality of the tour, A+
geraldambrosia, Sep 2019
The tour started promptly and the guide was extremely knowledgeable and managed the timetable well. We hit each location (Bran, Rasnov fortress and Peles) with seamless ease, and no quee. I was expecting a lot of delays and dreaded long waits at the castles, but this tour went without a hitch The guide also had a broad knowledge of current affairs, history and critical information pertaining to the locations visited as well. I wish him all the best personally and in his business. Gerald
Response from Host, Sep 2019
Thank you, Gerald! That's too kind of you, I couldn't have written it better myself! :) Indeed we had a wonderful tour with great guests like you. I appreciate your comments, thank you again! Florin
Long tiring day... too much time in the Van.
Scott_J, Aug 2019
The two castles and fort were all really interesting in different ways, and all worth the visit. Unfortunately doing all three at the peak of tourist season meant long drives stuck in heavy traffic at the hottest time in the summer. Our tour operator did not seem to understand the impacts of time on our schedule. No time for lunch stop... and limited time at each site. During the peak season I wouldn’t recommend this. Better to see them each individually than trying to cram them all in. They are all worth a visit.
Response from Host, Aug 2019
Dear MightyMouse, After more that three years doing this Castles Tour, in all seasons and all conditions, with all the nice and sometimes more than kind reviews of our guests, we will be the first to admit that a tour did no go well, nobody's perfect and it is always room to improve. But this time we will not agree with your "poor" rating, even if we respect all our guests reviews. Indeed, we faced unusually heavy traffic on our way to Peles on a Friday, so out of our control. But despite that, we have managed to enter the Castle in time and allow also 20-25 minutes for sandwiches on the terrace, as we usually do. If not for the traffic, it would have been 30 minutes or more, but we consider seeing the Castle inside is really important. I would like to mention that in both other stops ( two hours in Bran and more than one hour in Rasnov ) we have allowed free time and you have also bought snaks - kurtos colacs and sandwiches at Peles Castle. Now, this is the opinion of the Spanish couple who sat close to you, they were kind enough to let me use it here: "Excelente, el guía puntual, atento, simpático y además habla español a la perfección." I guess they are way too different for the same tour, even without translation. We strongly suggest next time you do not book a Three Castles Tour for a very easy day. We and TripAdvisor Experiences also offer Two Castles tours and great culinary tours with private transfers. We would like to remind you the free services you have received out of courtesy before, during and after the tour, services you were supposed to pay for, and that the AC system of the van was working well to keep out the heat of the Transylvanian summer. To close this, we strongly disagree with your "poor" rating, even if we admit it was a longer than usual day due to out of our control traffic issues. Florin Cristea
Three Castles Trip is fantastic
Kristina F, Jul 2019
My husband and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Our guide, Florin, was very interesting and informative. Though we saw three attractions, we never felt rushed and had a good amount of time in each location. I have to say that Bran Castle was my favorite of the three, but Rasnov and Peles were also great. I highly recommend this tour!
Response from Host, Jul 2019
Dear Kristina and Mark, thank you again! First for booking with us and second for you review! Glad you liked it, wish you a great stay in Romania and a safe trip back home. Florin
