The trip was great we were a nice small group of only 4 people. The factory was really interesting as well. The only thing that could have made this better was to maybe stop for lunch on the way back into Praha. You can get gelato at the Factory but otherwise the options are just a few snack food items there. I would definitely recommended this tour though and have actually already done so. Thanks for the great memories! PS Prices there were awesome I spent a decent amount and ton way more then I expected to!!!!
My wife and I had the luxury of being the only two individuals on this tour. Our guide was a wonderful gentleman who was retired. He was extremely knowledgeable and gave us many helpful tips about Prague, places to eat, and shop. The Glass Factory tour was informative, but most importantly, shopping in the factory's shop was worth the trip. We bought many wonderful items at reasonable prices.
There were only a few of us on this tour - it was quite interesting and quick - if you're looking for a quick tour this is it.
The tour guide was friendly as well.
Enjoyed this factory trip to Nizbor Bohemia Glass factory. To see the employees with their skill was terrific. Good prices if you decide to buy something.
I enjoyed the visit. Only criticism was that the initial communication was vague about hotel pick up but that was resolved after a short email exchange.
Very good. Short but full of information. I was able to go inside the factory and see first hand all the step of glass making
This was most interesting of all our trips
The factory guide was most informative and instructive as to each operation within the plant
She also gave us information as to the life style of workers
nice driver-the other guy in the car should have spoken more about the country side, politics anything-he mostly sat there. The other tour lady who went to the castle talked to her clients the whole way to the castle. I found her to be quite interesting. The tour itself was good-we needed more than 1/2 hour for 6 people to shop after the tour. The vehicle did stop and drop us off on the way home. That was good

The tour of the Nizbor glass blowing factory was very interesting and the local guide was very good. We not only saw the crystal being blown but also watched the workers while they cut the design in the crystal. It was great to watch the talented artists performing such intricate work.
Very easy trip from the city. Driver was early picking us up from the hotel but when we got to the check-in point, we seemed to stand around for a while before anyone could get organized. The guide on the bus spoke passable English but didn't understand a lot of the questions we asked, so we just gave up. The factory trip was brief and our guide kept pushing us to order coffee which made me think she was getting a kick-back. Prices were good but the selection wasn't great. Overall, enjoyed the trip and was good value for the price.
The guide was lovely, the driver was a maniac and the glass factory kept us waiting almost an hour before we could do a tour. Wouldnt recommend it.
The driver was very helpful and very knowledgeable. The visit of the factory was interesting but the guide at the factory did not provide much information.
The lady who was giving commentary didnt know English well enough. She made the tour a drab. The factory was interesting but the time available to look around was very less as there were many tours following us and so we were made to rush.
The bus was comfortable.
Trip was moved to next day because not open on Christmas day. We were only 2 on tour. The demonstration was good however, no one spoke English! Very disappointed. Could have been a lot more interesting if we could have understood demo and asked questions. Let down!!!
Unfortunately both drivers used to get us to Glass Factory were in my opinion putting lives at risk. Unfortunately Glass Factory tour was a let down and the fact they would not ship any item, even at our expense meant we did not purchase any item, although we would have if shipping was offered.
It was too far from Prague and not worth the long drive (2 hours each way and 1 hour in the factory)! There is a factory visit in the prague city and castle tour so don't book this if you are booking that one too. The driver was speeding and it was a small car with only 3 passengers.
The trips to and from the glass factory were combined with another tour going to a different venue, so we didn't return until much later than expected. The driver and tour guide had never been to the glass factory before and had to stop four times to get directions, further delaying us. The glass factory was out of the Communist era and used old technology. Finally, the tour provider initially refused to honor your statement that he would return me to my hotel, and I had to fight with him to do it. He finally took me, but I think only because he had to pick someone up nearby for another tour.
