Four Night Dracula's Castle Adventure in Romania 5 5 1 1
Fang-tastic! If you're looking for a relaxed city break, leisurely strolling around castles, then this is not the break for you. Pack your walking shoes, get your cameras ready and be prepared for a highly active tour of Transylvania. The weekend was crammed full of adventure - cities and villages, sunshine and snow-capped mountains and a country steeped in history. Our own personal guide took us around the country in a private car (no tourist crammed buses). We saw fortresses, castles, Dracula's birth place and of course the castles. The hotels were excellent, our guide was brilliant and so accommodating and the countryside is stunning. I would recommend that you have a moderate level of fitness to enjoy all of the activities as there are lots of steep hills, steps and towers to explore. Also be prepared for long car rides on winding roads, but well worth the journey. I would thoroughly recommend this trip, particularly to Dracula lovers. 11 May 2015
