What You Can Expect
Known in German as Karlsbad or Carlsbad, Karlovy Vary straddles the Tepla River and grew up around natural springs said to have been discovered by Holy Roman Emperor Charles — or Karl, IV — in 1358. As its reputation as a health spa grew, its reputedly curative waters drew many famous figures, including the composers Beethoven and Brahms during the 1800s.
Stretch your legs along the Tepla and admire the neo-Renaissance colonnades and spring fountains. Sample some of the town’s twelve mineral waters and enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs.
Break for an included restaurant lunch, and afterward, taste some of Karlovy’s beloved herbal liqueur, Becherovka, at a museum dedicated to the potent tipple. Then, discover Karlovy’s two other claims to fame: Moser crystal glassware and Thun porcelain. Browse the delicate pieces displayed at the Moser shop and Thun showroom, and if you wish, buy some as mementos.
Next, travel south to Marianske Lazne, another historical spa town in the Slavkovský les forest. Take a walking tour of the town, passing its romantic colonnades and parks as you learn about its mineral springs.
Visit the famous Cross Spring colonnade to taste its waters, and then return to Prague by coach to finish your tour.
Excellent. The guide, a retired engineer, was an extremely knowledgeable and considerate gentleman while the towns we visited were all elegant, beautiful and interesting.

I got lucky twice on booking group tour but getting a private, bcz of luck of tourists. Even with hall group it would be very nice trip. Worth it !!!
Fabulous tour.. The sights of Karlovy Vary are fantastic. Such a beautiful place. The entire tour was awesome. The guide, Jan was really friendly and tried to accommodate all our requirements. I highly recommend this tour. Viator provided this tour via the tour company.
Very nice tour, we've had a beautiful day! Karlov Vary is a wonderful barroque town and on september 4th, 2012 we've even saw the rainbow over the river that cross the town. The guide Petr was gentle, explained everything and even gave us free time. Highly recommended tour!
This is a wonderful trip. Daniel was a terrific tour guide!. He was didn't mind talking to me all the way to Karlovy Vary and all the way back to Prague fro Marianske Lazne. There were only 5 people total on the trip. 2 spoke Spanish and had their own guide. Therefore, there were only 3 of us in the English tour. Daniel's English is VERY good. It felt very personal. We were all older and we went at our own pace and did not feel rushed at all. I'm so happy that we went both places. They are so different. Karlovy Vary seemed a bit more elegant, Marianske Lazne was my favorite. It was more laid back and seemed a bit less crowded. Overall, I would highly recommend this trip to everyone!
