Not a bad day
Karlstejn is beautifull castle. Trip was well organized definitly worth the money. Thanks
Better done in Summer not late October since they close off part of the castle.
Excellent if you like cycling in the wilderness
It was fair. I like the tour guide. Very old man with good knowledge. Wish to spend more time with the castle and do the Tour #3 tower tour, but there is not enough time.
Great experience. Awesome guides who spoke great English. Fun ride at a reasonable pace. Beautiful scenery.
Pretty exhausting, but worth it. I had an enjoyable company. Bare in mind that the entrance fee to castle is not included.
The castle itself is great, medieval, the location is in the forest, very pretty. The actual tour of the castle is 50 minutes long with the local guide in the castle, but during the trip the tour guide gives you a lot of information.
This was one of the top highlights of our trip to Europe. The ride was beautiful and fun. There were really nice people in our group and our guide Yaakov was terrific! When we got to Karlstejn we had a really delicious lunch at a cafe there (included in the price) and then toured the castle. It was an all day event, but great. Loved it!
was lovely to be able to see some of the lovely countryside on the way to the Castle. Had plenty of time there to see all that was open to the public with a very good guide.
The trip was average as the relevant information of the castle was conveyed by an employee from the Castle. The castle itself was very interesting
Great trip - highly recommend - Kat was a lot of fun.
We were sure our guide was an ex-preschool teacher, and a very bossy one at that! The bus drive was quite pleasant, seeing a bit of the Prague countryside, and the castle tour a bit disappointing. A quick 30 minute tour through the castle, without any extra time to 'poke around' ourselves to explore. Wouldn't bother again with this tour.
An excellent trip to a very nice location. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable, but her German was better than her English. The guide who took us round the castle was excellent - we got to see the "Crown jewels" - or a copy of them. However, the unlocking and locking of doors as we moved from room to room was farcical - as was a stray in-costume musician, playing the lyre, sat in one of the rooms - flogging his CD and with a bowl for donations!
WE had a choice of how to get from the coach park to the castle - you coudl walk for free but its very steep. Taxi was the safest, but the route was about 5km in a strange roundabout way. Horse and cart seemed too cold for mid-October. We all walked down into a sweet village area - some cafes, restaurants and food stalls available as well as shops, mostly tourist rather than craft.
A long half day though - we didn't get back to Prague until gone 2.30
It was a great tour. My wife and I really enjoyed it.
