This experience only has a few reviews, but see what other travellers said about the provider.
We were on this tour on Jul 11, 2018. The driver stunk of body odour as did his minivan. He spoke little English. The 2 young ladies who were our guides through the Chateau and Castle respectively did a marvellous job. The stop at Novy Knin was a waste of time. There was no English explanation of any of the exhibits and the lunch was less than good. The cost for a 2 person private tour warrants a lot more for the money!
Great all day tour. Our driver took us to two castles, and - per the provider's suggestion based on the fact we were a family with kids 6 and 9 years of age - to a wild life reserve, which was very entertaining and unusual. We then still visited the bone chirch, and arrived back to Prague in time for dinner. The driver also suggested an earlier start we left hotel at 8AM to make better time and traffic. This was fine with us as well.
The driver spoke very little English, but he found us guides in both castles we visited, and they were very informative and interesting to listen to. Castles are very well kept and are beautiful with history and interior.
We had lunch at a very local looking spot, that is used to catering to this kind of group. Lunch includes a drink or a beer - or a non-alcoholic beer as well. Our driver had one :- Don't be alarmed, it is really non-alcoholic.
Nature reserve worked better than doing three castles, based also on the experience by our friends with kids who also took this tour and opted for three castles instead.
In the reserve, they do a flight demonstration of birds of prey, which is amazing. The animals there are tamed, since most of them are unsuitable for life in the wild due to some circumstance badly injured or orphaned as a baby, kept as a pet then rejected, etc. The reserve also has beautiful white deer population.
The bone church is a short stop, as it is small, but impressive. If you feel it is crowded, wait a few minutes, as a large tour group might be passing through, and once they go back to their transport, there will be lots more room for photos, etc.
Between places, staring at the countryside is very relaxing, and feeds imagination of being in the past.
This trip was awesome. The gentleman picked us up exactly on time which made things much easier. It was worth it!
Czech countryside was incredible in the snow, Driver was on time, van was clean. All objectives were accomplished. All of the churches we wanted to see were simply magnificent. The lunch our driver arranged was very good and enjoyable. He took the time to arrange a private tour of the pilgrimage site we wanted to see which was really special.
Long day, but was worth it. The drivers were always on time and willing to help in any way they coulc.
Great time. The meal was very good. The folklore show was fantastic. They got the crowd involved with a variety of music and dances.
Skiing at Klinovec was the highlight of our holiday in Prague this December. The trip is very easy to book and the price does include everything you need to enjoy a proper winter's day on a sky slope. The guide was exceptionally helpful and caring :, as well as being a fantastic driver - my husband confirmed it and he doesn't particularly like being in a car when someone else is driving, especially in the snow!
To make sure that everything goes smoothly, be aware that is a 2 hours drive and you will need to be ready for pick up at the correct times.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience and we will surely go there again!
Everything about this evening was excellent. A cab picked us up at our hotel and delivered us to the front door of the restrurant where we were met by staff and promptly seated. The music, dancing and overall entertainment was wonderful as was the dinner, beer and wine. The wine flowed freely and they enlisted audience participation in the dancing and singing. Would highly recommend.
The tour itself and sites visited were excellent and worth the trip. The issues..paid for english speaking guide. Vlosk was barely english speaking. The worst of it was that his personal hygiene was ghastly..he reeked !!! Impossible to get away from in the van and when he insisted on eating meals with us ...wow..made things very challenging. The accommodations were not in line with the price..sleeping on a cushion covered wooden platform on the third floor of a farmhouse..will little heat on the lower floors..is not in line with the price.
Be very careful with this tour..seeing these great sites another way is worth exploring.
