A fantastic and very packed day. Our guide Teo was knowledgeable and did his very best to accomodate our every need. Since we visited Bran the day before, we had some extra time so Teo took us to Vidraru dam and to Transfagarasan road - fantastic. A climb up tp Poienari fortress takes a bit of effort, but even elderly and our of shape can do it in 45 minutes max. A visit to the monestery on the lake rounded the tour off it was raining and the thunders gave it an extra appeal:. I highly recommend this tour and this guide.

We spent a long day following Vlad the Imapler. Our tour guide, Vlad (ironic) was incredible. He taught us so much about Romanian history. The sights were amazing but the real highlight was climbing the 1400 odd stairs to Poenari in the pouring rain and thunderstorm. This tour is long but awesome!
