Kutna Hora Day Trip from Prague

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better

My Review
The main reason my girlfriend and I took this trip was to see the Chapel of Bones, which is definitely worth seeing. Anything else we were going to see in Kutna Hora we classed as a bonus. Sadly, the time we spent at the Chapel of Bones was literally ten minutes, even less for me as I needed the toilet after the bus journey. It was the type of place you wanted to spend a half hour at least, although it's not very big it's the type of place you want to soak in your surroundings. After that we were taken to the main church in Kutna where out tour guide explained things in his passable English but didn't really seem too bothered. Finally we didn't really get to see much of the town, which was a disappointment because it looked really interesting. We followed the guide down one street and were then given to another tour guide whose English was barely comprehensible - but you expect to be able to understand the guide at least. The final part of the tour was made worse by the fact that we spent nearly an hour learning about how coins were made in the 13th century. A topic which I'm sure some people will find interesting, but personally I found it a bit boring and the fact we spent ages there compared to the Chapel of Bones. I would recommend, especially anyone around my age 25, renting a car for the day and driving yourself there and taking your time. It's pretty easy to drive there from Prague and I imagine it would only cost a bit more. Shame really because we've had really positive experiences through Viator previously.

Neuschwanstein Castle Small Group Day Tour from Munich

Munich, Germany

My Rating
5 star rating: Highly Recommended

My Review
Excellent trip. Two friendly guides who took turns in talking to the group. The castle and surrounding area was beautiful too. I would have liked an extra hour in the village to explore at the bottom of the hills, but otherwise amazing trip and some cracking photos. Don't miss out!
