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
This really is an excellent tour. The glass factory was excellent; you were so close to the workers that you could see and feel what was happening. The brewery tour was a little long, but it was very interesting and the lunch in the restaurant was very good. We had an excellent guide who kept us entertained with his stories for most of the day. I would recommend this tour to anyone, it's definitely worth the money, even though it was a little cold in the brewery cellars, so do wrap up warm.
We had a very good guide for the day. We had a small group, only 7 of us plus the driver/guide. Very informative, good beer and good lunch.
This was the perfect day trip from Prague. They picked us up at our hotel, and the day was well paced interesting and I absolutely loved it.
This excursion was definitely worth the price. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly and engaged in conversation about all kinds of topics. The glass works tour was fascinating and we were shocked at how close we were able to get to the workers. The tour guide at the glass works was less enthusiastic and didn't seem to want to talk to us after the tour, but he did recite his script well during the tour.
The brewery visit was fun and informative with a good mix of film and live narration. The guide, was able to answer every question and did a great job. The beer is the best I've had! I highly recommend this trip to visitors of the Czech Republic and maybe even locals!
Once we were on our way, everything was very easy. The only hitch was when I called the day before, whoever I talked to said he couldn't find my name even though I had made the reservation weeks before. Everything turned out fine the day of the trip.
The glass factory and brewery were great! You get to see the processes of both places from beginning to end. The restaurant Na Splice is good too, definitely get your fill of Pilsner Urquell from there before you leave. Guide was great, even gave us a little tour of Plzen's Old Town - city center!
This is a must-do activity! What a wonderful experience. Our driver picked us up at the meeting location and took us to a little town outside of Prague to visit a nationally recognized glass blowing factory. After a tour of the factory we were able to purchase beautiful hand crafted glass at extremely affordable prices - significantly cheaper than in Prague and much more unique. Then, we made our way to the Pilsner Urquell Brewery for a tour of the property and of course - a tasting. Yum! Our driver was so kind as to leave us an hour after the tour to have a late lunch in the delicious brewery restaurant where we enjoyed 0.50 pints and great food. We even had enough time to visit the brewery tour shop before getting back in the car for a relaxing drive back to the city. The excursion was well worth the price, not just for the experience but also for the great deals we got on our holiday gifts and souvenirs!
