Excellent Tourist Guide!!! She was very knowledgeable about the City and was adept t shepherding a large crowd of tourists. Also, she was very personable! Highly recommended not only for the tour guide but also for the impressive preserved architecture of Cesky Krumlov!

This town was a delight - beautiful. A great mix of history, architecture and the relaxed atmosphere of the Czech Republic. I would stay longer.

A really good (and long) day out - about 3 hours each way - and we stopped for a toilet break on the way out (but not on the way back). Plenty to do and see in this fabulous UNESCO World heritage site town. Our guide did seem to want us following him like sheep the whole time, but we did manage to get an hour or so to explore on our own whilst some spaniards had an arranged lunch, even though he directed the rest of us to another restaurant he obviously had ties with. We escaped and had a fabulous bowl of goulash soup in a bread bowl at a small place by the riverside, then went perusing the qaint little shops that we had previously been hurried by in his ever-zealous search for yet another "roccoco", "gothic" or "rennaisance" example of architecture. The actual castle/palace visit was worth every minute spent, with examples of 14th, 16th and 19th century rooms, portraying the three different families that held sway during its heyday. The town itelf, below the castle and on the banks of a curve in the river Vlatava, is picturesque to the max! Highly recommended

We took the Cesky Kromluv tour and it was great value, comfortable journey there and back and the guide was very knowledgeable in the history and architecture of the wonderful buildings. Well worth doing the trip and would highly recommend.

For the 2.5 hr drive each way in a small mini bus, overall we thought it is overrated.

Its less of a castle and more of a quaint medieval town. It does have great views and some cool architecture but kind of a let down after reading all the great reviews that you 'must see if you love castles'. I actually enjoyed Karlstekn castle better in this visit to Czech.

We had about 2 hours of free time and after an hour lunch at Piazza Cafe good soup and pizza, we walked around and found ourselves waiting in the square for 40 min bc there wasn't really much else to do.

The tour of the inside of the castle was ok. You cant take any pictures and lasts almost an hr. Tour guide was informative. You get a bathroom break on way to Cesky Krumlov but not one on the way back.
