See two countries in one day on this small-group tour from Prague. In Germany, explore the city of Hrensko and the Pravcicka Gate, the Bastei Bridge, and sail on a gondola-style boat on the Kamenice River Gorge. Then, discover photogenic natural wonders at the Bohemian and Saxon National Parks in Switzerland.
We booked our hike for September 13, and we chose this company over others because it seemed it would allow us to see the most in our one day excursion. Zusanna was our guide and she picked us up promptly at 7:30am at our Airbnb and we then picked up 2 other guys staying in another part of Prague not too far away. As promised, plenty of snacks and water were provided. During the drive, our guide talked about some of the things and towns we saw along the way. I always find this helpful to provide a framework for what we are seeing. Once we arrived at the park, we did the most difficult part of the hike. We hiked to the arch and took in the spectacular views. All of our group was in decent shape, but we saw all types of people doing this trek. Afterwards, we walked a short distance to a charming lunch spot in Hrensko. It was a delicious lunch specializing in traditional Czech cuisine. We didn't pay any extra for the lunch and beer as it was included. After lunch, we did the boat ride. The scenery was gorgeous and it was nice to relax a bit. Our guide explained what the boatman was saying as it was in Czech. This boat tour, she explained, is geared towards children as they point out different shapes in the rocks and cliffs and the waterfall is created by the boatman pulling a rope and releasing the water from something. Once we finished here, we went to the German side and checked out the Bastei Bridge. Again, stunning views and hard to imagine how a castle could have been built there. I would definitely recommend this tour and Zusanna was an awesome guide. She was personable, knowledgeable, and charming and we learned a lot about Czech culture in addition to seeing some beautiful scenery! Thank you Bohemia Adventures we will be back for sure using your even better deals from your own website.
At very short notice, we decided to do a full day trip out of Prague and see some of the countryside. After some quick research, we contacted Bohemia Adventures and within the hour had a reply from Mooris to say they could take us on the Bohemian and Saxon Switzerland full day tour the following morning departing at 7.30am. Then, like clockwork, our guides Zuzanna and Straun appeared just before 7.30 and off we went. We had a most enjoyable, entertaining and interesting day and were safely delivered back to our accommodation at 5.30pm. See website for itinerary. Highly recommended.
This tour was a wonderful break from Prague, fresh air and spectacular scenery refreshed my body and soul...smile
Alesh and Honza our guides were friendly, knowledgeable and courteous, both spoke excellent English so were easy to understand.
First we walked up to Natural Arch, the entire way felt like we'd stepped into a Lord of the Rings mystical forest. Even though I heard this has been the longest drought and heat wave in this region the lush vistas and greenery were still spectacular.
The restaurant at the top looked like an ancient monastery suspended in time. Alesh was knowledgeable and welcomed my many questions. He clearly enjoyed sharing the history and culture of the region and I learned quite a lot along the way.
Lunch was a great way to sample local traditional cuisine in a small village mountainside location.
I enjoyed the walk down to the river and the different route back from our Gondola ride...It was very tempting to jump into the water of that beautiful and clean river...they mentioned that for well over 100 years tourists have been enjoying this hidden oasis. There is no wonder why.
My favourite - and took plenty of photos - was the views from the ancient 12th century? Saxon Bohemian castle remnant, from high above the valley, our group was surrounded by monumental natural stone pillars that jutted maybe 100m into the sky, maybe more? I've never seen anything like it...
Snacks and refreshments were available en route between locations, the tour vehicle was new, clean and comfortable.
Thank you Alesh and Honza for making my trip with you both a memorable one.
Bohemia Adventures!? More like Bohemia Amazers!
Best day by far out of our week long holiday. So good my wife and I almost forgot the kids completely but unfortunately they tagged along with us for the day too. My son 16 and daughter 18 even managed to pull their eyes away from their tweetering and InstaGramming and also were blown away by the majestic beauty of this area!
Whole day was organised superbly and was a great day out for the whole family. All though side for parents with younger kids it is a big day out 11-12hrs approx with a fair amount of walking so bare this in mind. Plus their website is full of great deals too!!!
By far, the best small group day tour out of Prague and perhaps one of our favorite tours in the world. From the quality and friendliness of our guide, to the beautiful views of the Bohemian Saxon National Park and the Bastei Bridge, to a relaxing and extraordinary river raft ride and a surprisingly scrumptious Bohemian meal of our choice in the middle of a National Park. Although there was significant hiking and climbing to be had, the guide moved at our pace and as such, it was a relatively easy trek, even for us in our 50s and 60s. The views at the top were beyond description. The small tour size of 4 made it more like a private tour but at a much better price. It was the highlight of our two weeks in Austria and the Czech Republic, which is saying a lot because all two weeks were filled with fabulous adventures. Thanks Bohemia Adventures and shame we did not know you offer way better deal through your own website!!
A group of 14 Canadians that had an absolutely fantastic time visiting Bohemian Switzerland National Park. The tour was exceptionally well organized. The transportation was very comfortable, timely and had fantastic wifi. We really appreciated Bohemia Adventures's attention to detail.
Our tour guide Mooris and Jaro wwer delightful, informative and easy to talk to. We felt as though we were on a hike with a friend. The forest and scenery is second to none! If you love nature, this is a must do! The trails are groomed and easy to walk.
Our group opted for the tour which included the Bastei Bridge as we felt we absolutely had to see it. We were not disappointed! It is breathtakingly beautiful. The take away: This tour is totally worth doing if you love nature and are looking to get away from the city. Bohemia Adventures provided one of the most organized day trips we've had to date!!
We very much enjoyed this trip. Our tour guide was friendly and knowledgeable and provided us with a wonderful experience. We received an email the day before our tour with details and what to expect. We were picked up on time. The van was clean and comfortable. The park was amazing. We took the easy tour which was very manageable and we moved at our own pace. I struggled a little bit with the height of the bridges and path and opted out for a part of the hike. Our lunch was fantastic. I would highly recommend this tour it was one of our trips highlights. Thanks Bohemia Adventures.
This trip was awesome and well organised. We were picked up at the hotel on time in a comfortable van with good air conditioning. We were 8 in total in pairs of 2 from different parts of the world and that even made the trip more fun as we engaged well with our tour guide and shared travel experiences. The drive was not too long from Prague to the boat rides and all the time we were accommodated to ensure our comfort. The sightseeing was great , easy walking and beautiful nature all around. Our tour guide was informed, patient and kind and it was a pleasure for us.. He translated in English to us on the boat ride all that was shared by boat operator. He was well prepared with rain coats for when it started drizzling in Germany and I felt safe and really would recommend this to all who visit Prague and love nature and breath taking scenery. ITS A MUST DO GUYS SERIOUSLY.. I WOULD DO IT AGAIN..and yes lunch was provided including a mini healthy snack upon pick up..
