Great tour of a medieval castle. Great exterior with a somewhat spas interior, but still a great historical site. Very knowledgeable guide. Buy a carriage trip to the castle as walking on a hot day is a pain. Carriage is cheap.

We really enjoyed our time. We were part of a small friendly group and our guide was excellent. The castle and village nearby are great. Really worth going.

Very enjoyable tour and very private only 6 of us. Our tour guide Helene spoke in English and Italian. She was very knowledgeable about the Czech Republic and describing the countryside along the drive. Once at the castle, we had an internal tour guide who was very knowledgeable about the castle and Charles the IV. Very interesting!

I loved Karlstejn Castle! Our guide was very informative and told some very interesting stories about the area. It turned out that there was a wine festival going on that day so her job was made much more challenging by the crowds. However she handled it very well by setting up meeting points, waiting in strategic places to direct each of us, and got us all back to Prague again!

The tour was almost an hour getting on the road from the Municipal Square and we had to then pick up someone at Old Town Square for some unaccountable reason. The guide on the way out was a bit loquacious but kept things moving. Everyone should be warned that the "walk" up to the castle from the parking area is not easy. And not for the faint of heart. Be warned. At the castle, there was another long wait. That said, the young man who showed us around the castle was absolutely terrific. Alas, I didn't get his name. A wonderful history lesson.

An excellent trip to a very nice location. Our tour guide was quite knowledgeable, but her German was better than her English. The guide who took us round the castle was excellent - we got to see the "Crown jewels" - or a copy of them. However, the unlocking and locking of doors as we moved from room to room was farcical - as was a stray in-costume musician, playing the lyre, sat in one of the rooms - flogging his CD and with a bowl for donations!
WE had a choice of how to get from the coach park to the castle - you coudl walk for free but its very steep. Taxi was the safest, but the route was about 5km in a strange roundabout way. Horse and cart seemed too cold for mid-October. We all walked down into a sweet village area - some cafes, restaurants and food stalls available as well as shops, mostly tourist rather than craft.
A long half day though - we didn't get back to Prague until gone 2.30

We truly enjoyed this tour. We were lucky that our trip was on the day of the annual wine festival. The castle was full of people dressed in medieval costume, jugglers and a parade of the King and his court on horseback in armour. It was a good day

Wonderful tour. Our guide was not only very knowledgable about the castle- but gave us a short history lesson on the way there and back.

Now I know what Gothic means as opposed to other architecture styles. The guide was good about answering questions and adding details!

was lovely to be able to see some of the lovely countryside on the way to the Castle. Had plenty of time there to see all that was open to the public with a very good guide.
