Going to Becherovka was fun, and Karlovy Vary was great. Had coffee at the Grand Hotel Pupp, very classy. Don't forget to take some spa crackers home!
Nice places but in good weather. Plus the tour guide who barely can walk.
Bad weather and a weak guide meant this was a very limited tour. The tour consists of walking around the two spa towns and sampling the water (they drink it) at the locations. These are dominantly Russian tourist sites, as they seem to be the dominant crowd in the area. Very attractive locations, and an opportunity to see some countryside outside of Prague.
The city was so beautiful but the tour guide was terrible. She basically chaperoned us and didnt share much about the history, or the architecture of the city.
Highly overrated and not a good value for our money. You need to inform the amount of time we would be spending on the the road in a van...it was 5 hours...half of the ten hour day was spent driving. Wish we hadn't wasted the money.
The tour guide didn't provide any information about the countryside we were driving through however was knowledgeable about the spa towns and the history. The lunch in Karlovy Vary was awful. The spa towns were beautiful and the architecture was wonderful and the tour was a good way to see some of the magnificent scenery in the Czech Republic but not really a great tour.
La ville est tres belle. Le guide n'etait pas du tout patient. Il nous a presque rien explique, il a surtout ignore "english speking people". On s'attendait a qqc plus different.
The guide was so lazy didn't introduce much things to us, we came back to Prague 3 hours before estimated time, and we had to wait for her all the time during the tour time, e.g. Wait for her playing with pedestrian's babies, wait for her toilet needs. But those are nice and beautiful cities tho.
While in Prague, my friend and I took approximately three tours, but this was by far the worst tour! The bus picked us up at the hotel and brought us to a central meeting spot. We then waited for another bus to bring us to Karlovy Vary. There was both an English speaking and a Spanish speaking tour guide on the bus, which was fine because we were a small group. I imagine if the group was larger, it would have been very difficult to hear anything. The tour guide was nice enough, but I would hardly call him a guide, more of a chaperone. He gave a little bit of history about Prague itself, and then when we got to Karlovy Vary he walked slowly through the town. The guide was unable to answer questions and it seemed that he needed to stick to his script. When an elderly woman needed to take a break he became completely flustered and continued the tour with little regard for the woman. The tour also indicated a visit to the Moser glass shop, which meant as we walked by the shop the tour leader said "This is the Moser Glass Shop." We did not stop in to see anything. The bus which was promised to be air conditioned was not! It was incredibly hot, with no circulation at all. When we asked the bus driver to turn on the air conditioning he appeared upset. Overall, I would not recommend this trip to fellow travelers. The town itself was quite lovely, and would have been great to see at our own pace. If you are interested in seeing Karlovy Vary, make an appointment at a spa and take public transportation to the town!
Worst experience ever in 25 years of travelling ! Marianske was a waste of time. The lunch in Jeneces was a disaster. Had asked for vegetarian food and was given boiled vegetables . When asked to change the boiled potatoes for roast potatoes ( which the others were given ) i was told by the waitress Linda " i don't have time ". When i followed her to the kitchen to show her what i wanted ( as there was a language problem ", i wasyelled at and insulted by a waiter ( marekk) and told " to get out "!Even the manager when called offered no apology for this rude behaviour and said the staff is busy when there is a group.Did not see the brewery ( as was planned )because there was another group there. please change the restaurant to another one which does not make the client wonder why they came there !Have booked at least 30 trips on yr website and this was terrible !
