Visit two of the Czech Republic’s elegant spa towns on a day trip from Prague, with an expert guide. Traveling by air-conditioned coach, head into forested west Bohemia to the town of Karlovy Vary, known for its twelve mineral springs. Explore the town with its graceful colonnades, taste some waters and discover its other claims to fame — crystal glassware, porcelain and herbal liqueur. Enjoy an included lunch, and continue through the lush forests to the handsome spa town of Marianske Lazne to sample some of its equally acclaimed waters.
  • Czech Spas of Karlovy Vary and Marianske full day guided coach tour from Prague
  • Discover the rich history of Karlovy Vary and its twelve springs
  • See Marianske Lazne with its curative springs and unique historical architecture
  • Enjoy a delicious lunch
  • Walk along the Tepla (warm) River and majestic Neo-Renaissance colonnades and taste different mineral waters
  • Led by a professional guide
Begin your day trip with a pickup from your Prague hotel or central Prague. Hop inside your air-conditioned coach and as you journey through rural Bohemia learn about Karlovy Vary, one of the Czech Republic’s most renowned spa towns.
Known in German as Karlsbad or Carlsbad, Karlovy Vary straddles the Tepla River and grew up around natural springs said to have been discovered by Holy Roman Emperor Charles — or Karl, IV — in 1358. As its reputation as a health spa grew, its reputedly curative waters drew many famous figures, including the composers Beethoven and Brahms during the 1800s.
Stretch your legs along the Tepla and admire the neo-Renaissance colonnades and spring fountains. Sample some of the town’s twelve mineral waters and enjoy free time to shop for souvenirs.
Break for an included restaurant lunch, and afterward, visit the Moser Glass Factory Museum. Discover Karlovy’s two other claims to fame: Moser crystal glassware and Thun porcelain. Browse the delicate pieces displayed at the Moser shop and Thun showroom, and if you wish, buy some as mementos.
Next, travel south to Marianske Lazne, another historical spa town in the Slavkovský les forest. Take a walking tour of the town, passing its romantic colonnades and parks as you learn about its mineral springs.
Visit the famous Cross Spring colonnade to taste its waters, and then return to Prague by coach to finish your tour.

we were only 3 people with the driver and the guide Marghareth and in french language.
The guide was NIL. she doesn't know anything : Her french language was mediocre, doesn't know something special about the 2
places we already visited. From the beginning I asked her to take us or to tell us where is the russian church in Marianske Lazne. She doen't know about it, but it's very important and the people there tell us where .... when I asked her again, she didn't listen to me and didn't answer. we prefered if she was not with us, we prefered to be only with a driver to take us to karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne.
She was very antipathic. when returned back to Prague, she talked with us quickly quickly and went quickly. she is not helpful at all.
Really this tour was null . Domage.
the third person from France paid 66 euros for this trip. we paid 175 euros meaning 87.50 euros by person. WHY ??? also the price was incridible. I thing I put off Viator from my choice.

A nice, small group. There were only 6 of us in a comfortable van. The Moser glass factory was very interesting. The lunch meal was very good. Both spa towns were amazing. Our guide was engaging and knowledgeable. The driver was safe and efficient.

It turned out to be an English/French combination. We never signed up for a combo. However our tour lady didn't have a good command of both languages. I asked for a time to wonder like 1/2 an hour to look around in Karlovy Vary and did not allowed it. Before we went to Marianske Lazne, a french tourist requested in Karlovy Vary time to use the restroom and was told in few minutes that translated into 1/2 hour until we got Marianske Lazne. Very uncomfortable,
We got 20 minutes free time at the end of the end of the tour in Marianke Lazne, but it took 20 minutes to get back to the bus. So in reality there was no free time at all.
Lunch was very poorly organized and only one choice available. It seamed food from the day before.

The tour was all right. The guide was efficient and nice. The problem was with the driver. He just disappeared for long minutes and had to go back to him from the other end of the city, instead of him coming with the bus. I had a feeling that the guide is afraid of him.
We particularly enjoyed Marienbad a really enchanting place. A pity that we have so short a time there.

Excellent trip! I looked hard to find a trip that included Marienske Lazne and if was worth it! Pavel explained history, politics and architecture. Thank you for a wonderful day!

I'm glad I chose this tour that also goes to Marianske Lazne because I actually liked that better than Karlovy Vary. Marianske Lazne is a little lower key, if you could say that about a gorgeously appointed spa town. The colonnade is truly stunning and the park in the middle of town makes it seems more relaxed and less crowded. Both spas are definitely sights to see with their opulent architecture. The tour offers a great ride through the rolling country outside of Prague and it's great to see that as well, and I did enjoy the visit to the Moser glass factory. We were taken to a pleasant restaurant for lunch that even offered a vegetarian option, and our tour guide had us back in Prague on time. I was even picked up and dropped off at my hotel.

Karlovy Vary and Marianske Lazne are beautiful towns. There was also a tour of the Moser glass factory which we thoroughly enjoyed. The tour overall was good.

Nice one but Guide was lenient thus Schedule could not be maintained.

Excellent. The guide, a retired engineer, was an extremely knowledgeable and considerate gentleman while the towns we visited were all elegant, beautiful and interesting.
