Amazing Experience
Jul. 2021
Our guide Tiberiu was amazing. Hands down, I would come back to Brasov just to do another tour with him. He was very knowledgable about the sites we went to and about Romania history. I learned a lot during the day that we spent with him. I will certainly recommend this tour to anyone that goes to Brasov.

Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress
Jul. 2021 • Friends
This was a lovely tour! Our guide, Tiberiu, was very knowledgeable about the history of each site and was very thorough in his explanations. We loved this tour and it was a great way to see both Bran Castle and Rasnov Fortress.

Very nice experience
Jul. 2021 • Couples
Our trip was very pleasant, we had priority at the entrances of Peles and Bran Castle. Our guide Karoly was really kind and competent and a stunning English speaker. He took his time to explain in detail aspects of the not so well known (for us, Italians) history of modern Romania. I absolutely recommend a trip with Active Travel!

Outstanding service
I booked 2 tours with Active Travel during June 2021 after the pandemic and could not be happier. From the attention I received when contacting the operator by whatsapp I knew I was in good hands. One of the most important elements when booking a tour is the guide. My guide was Tiberiu and he did an amazing job.I was just expecting a normal tour but got immersed into the lives and day a day of medieval Romanians by his expertise in such a way that the tour was much more than that: it was an experience that made me learn quite a lot and understand many things for example in Sibiu I got to learn the importance of guilds to the city, and in Rasnov I learnt lots of war tactics for defending a fortress; finally in Bran Castle I understood how the legend of Dracula came to be after a series of historical coincidences and how Bran castle has so much more history and how this castle is something real with centuries of historical events and not made to attract tourists just for vampire hunting. I think one of the main reasons I enjoyed Transylvania was my experience with Active Travel

Best travel agency in Brasov
We took one day trip to Rasnov and Bran Castle the guide Mr Tiberiu Simon was extremely helpful and made the trip an unforgettable one. Flexible in pick up locations, extremely knowledgeable about the history of the sites and said it like a story and attracted our attentions to every single detail. He also guided us on where best to take photos and recommended a very decent place to have lunch after the trip. I could not expect more from the agency or the guide.

Incredibly Informative - Sign up!
Apr. 2021
Yes, they are still doing tours in the pandemic and the sites are open! Not all restaurants are open but Bran Castle has hardly any tourists. Great time to go. Rasnov is available to see from the outside during renovations but the inside is not. I didn't feel like I missed that much there. Tiberiu (TB) led my tour and when I mentioned that I wanted to learn more about Romania history TB lit up. He is such a nice person and shared all of what he knew about Romanian history, to include the sites we visited and then more, and also talked about the local food and how hard COVID has been on the country. I really enjoyed his company and would count this as the best experience I had in 5 days in Romania. Thanks TB!
