What You Can Expect

Karlovy Vary Day Trip from Prague

The Thermal Spa Town of Karlovy Vary (Karlsbad)

Karlovy Vary is the most famous Bohemian spa, and was named for the Holy Roman Emperor Charles (Karl) IV. The emperor allegedly found the springs in 1358 during a hunting expedition. In the 19th century, many famous people came here from all over Europe for treatment, including Goethe, Schiller, Beethoven, Chopin and Karl Marx.

Upon your arrival in Karlovy Vary, you will visit a glass exhibition at the Moser factory. Then, as you stroll through the town along the spa colonnades, you will have a chance to sip the water from the mineral springs, taste delicious local wafers and the traditional herbal Becherovka liqueur.

Great trip! Jan, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable. He gave us interesting information about Prague and whatever areas we were passing through on our way to Karlovy Vary. The coach was comfortable and the ride was about an hour and a half each way. The first stop, the glass factory was interesting, but the best part, of course, is Karlovy Vary itself. It has a very special beauty and is a place I'll never forget. Lunch was pretty good too. I would highly recommend this Karlovy Vary trip!

This was a nine hour tour from Prague to the Karlovy spa area with lunch included. The tour was exactly what we wanted. Karlovy was a beautiful town; shopping was great, and our lunch was very good. The architecture of Karlovy is definitely worth seeing, and we would highly recommend this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended November 2014

Karlovy Vary is just beautiful - could have stayed much longer than the tour allowed. Plenty of free time to long around which is always a bonus. The visit to the Moser Glass Factory was actually the reason we chose the tour and we were not disappointed. It was A long day but well worth it. Can definitely recommend Karlovy Vary and this tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

KARLOVY Vary is the most interesting place to visit. Beautiful! Don't miss gong to the Grand Pupp Hotel where James Bond made several movies and the " Last Holiday" was made.
