Interesting places to visit. Especially the brewery and beer tasting.
Years ago I visited the Corning Glass Factory in New York where I saw their modern glass blowing techniques. I was quite impressed with this tour since the process is accomplished in a much more traditional manner with brick ovens. If I did not already have a large glass/crystal collection, I would have bought many pieces at the shop as their prices are fantastic. We also visited the Pilsner Urquell Brewery where you view a movie about the history of the brewery and can tour their operations. In addition, we went into the cellars where they aged the beer in large wooden barrels. We were also able to taste the beer straight from the barrel. It went down very smoothly. We enjoyed the tour and our guide was very nice.
One of my favorite day trips in the Czech Republic by far. Both the glass factory and Pilzen were very entertaining and educational. Would love to go back and bring my boyfriend along...he'd have loved it.
Fantastic tour - loved both the glass and brewery tour. Our tour guide was fantastic and knowledgeable; very friendly. I would recommend this to anyone!
Tour guide was extremely courteous and thoughtful. Went out of his way to make the tours and lunch and getting around easy for everyone. The tours themselves were very interesting. I only wish we had been able to spend a little more time watching the glass blowers in the furnace area. Fascinating!
Thoroughly enjoyable to see the workings of both the Bohemian Glass factory and Pilzner Brewing facility! All the guides involved were informative, the beer tasting was fun and the special buying deals at the glass factory were fantastic! We would highly recommend this wonderful tour!
Fantastic, This was a small factory. We got to see everything up close and personal. Firing, blowing, cutting, fascinating. Their card machine was not working and they don't ship so take a big bag and some cash.
Excellent excursion. Great guide, time for everything we wanted to do plus beautiful countryside you don't always see on a Prague trip. Highly recommended.
Excellent guide, very attentive and helpful. The beer tasting was delicious, as was the included lunch.
It was very nice, one of the best. well organized and interesting.
Wonderful experience. I would book a Viator tour again. Our guide was very personable and interesting, and even gave me directions to go to 2 shops in Prague when we got back so I could buy Czech ribbon and lace. We were all happily surprised with the gift at the end of the tour. I would have liked one more hour in Pilsen to see the town.
This was a fantastic combination tour and perfectly timed for both locations! The glass factory tour really gave us an appreciation for this special craft. We were especially happy that the gift shop had multiple items that we did not see in every gift shop. In fact, the crystal + garnet design we bought was not in any stores so we really got our 'unique' gift representing the Czech Republic. The brewery tour was well done and ended up with a great taste of the special brew. Having lunch included made it so much easier for the day. We didn't have to spend our time trying to find some place to eat. If you go to Prague, be sure to take this tour.
Fun and entertaining.
Excellent trip -- good guide, would have been better if the new brewery was running
