Location: Brasov, Brasov County, Central Romania, Transylvania Title: Sensational Bran, Peles & Pelisor Castles, Rasnov Fortress and Caraiman Monastery ID#: 271465562 I booked Marian for a 1 day tour to see the castles and the Rasnov fortress but since we still had time he took me to see the Caraiman Monastery just as an added bonus. Marian managed to squeeze it all in a day which is quite a feat considering that they were all in different areas. We went to Bran Castle first and was able to see the castle before the hustle & bustle of tourist crowds. Marian jokingly said "I rented the whole palace for your exclusive visit!" ... It did seem that way! Bran castle was very fascinating as its not spooky at all! Marian is walking history book as I learned a lot about the historical places we visited. I am a big Bram Stoker fan as well as an avid reader of history books --- Marian gave me more than enough stories and details to gnaw on! Peles Castle however was over the top -- definitely worth seeing for yourself! Rasnov Fortress was very interesting, it has got a great view of whole of Rasnov, Brasov and the mountain ranges in the area. It was a very well organized tour indeed! And I also need to add that, the next day Marian made sure I made it to my train to Bucharest by driving me and helping me with my luggage! Really great hospitality. He really went out of his way to get me comfortable given that it was my first time in Romania and I was travelling alone.

“Hi Marian. I just wanted to say the tour - Brown Bear Watching in the Wild - was wonderful. Once in a lifetime experience. You and Cosmin did everything to make us feel welcome and we enjoyed every moment!!!! Thank you and thanks Cosmin for us.”

Marian & Christian Thank you both for putting together such a good itinerary for our first visit to Romania, and subsequently taking such good care of us. It was so kind of Marion to take us all the way up to Zalanpatak, along that long dirt tract - much appreciated. Your country is even more beautiful than described, and we do hope to return when time allows, although we are hoping to visit Slovakia, Georgia and Estonia too! I have tried to put a review on Tripadvisor, but an error msg keeps coming up - will keep trying, as ActiveTravel definitely deserves to succeed, and we will be recommending you to all our friends who express an interest in visiting Transylvania. With very best wishes to both of you Elizabeth

It was an amazing tour! Spent almost a good day there and everything we learnt and saw was of some excellent benefit and helped understand the architecture you see. Highly recommended. *****

“Great way to see Brasov” My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience with Marian as our tour guide.... A big thank you. He is genuinely friendly and knows his history. He was patient and entertaining. A bit of miss communication on our part, We were late however Marian waited in the rain. We only had 1 day to do our tour. Marian made it a true success! You can't go wrong with his tour... He's enthusiastic as well as entertaining. Never a dull moment. We did the tour to Dracula's castle etc.... Visited February 2014

Excellent Mountain Trek! I have used Active Travel now for two years in a row and plan on continuing to do so in the years to come! Both guides from 2012 and 2013 have been incredibly helpful, professional, knowledgeable, and fun! The Piatra Craiului and other mountains in the south Carpathians are unparalleled in majestic beauty, I highly recommend these treks!

"It was a real pleasure to be with you and to be guided by you. I recommend to visit Romania side by side with MARIUS. THANK YOU!" Hava and Ronen, Israel, January 13, 2013

Highly recommend was the self guided trip provided by Active Travel Leader Marian Tirla. Friendly and effecient service providing accommodation and transfers in the fascinating Carpathian Mountains close to Brasov. Maps and guidance are provide enabling some good walking through mainly well marked forest tracks and on to the challenging Piatra Craiului Ridge. Experience and a head for heights is required but it makes for some enjoyable experiences.Reasonable costs make this a must do trip for somewhere slightly different to enjoy the mountains.Thanks for looking after us so well and helping to make our trip so enjoyable.

I went on a one day trek summer 2011 with a friend which was fantastic. We were only in Brasov for a short while and gave very short notice. Our Guide was very accomodating and was very keen for us to enjoy the trek and take in the sights of the Romanian mountains. He had a good sense of humour too! Charlie
