Travis did an awesome job. The library was incredible and we had a great time sampling beer and visiting the breweries. Highly recommend this tour!
5 Star Experience - Star 1: Our guide Vadim is a brilliant historian and global citizen who lent a fun, approachable, intellectual air to our tours of the Strahov and Breznov monasteries and breweries. Star 2: The itinerary allows for a unique perspective on the history of Prague. Politics, War, Intrigue, its a saga worthy Gore Vidal and not the run-of-the-mill 'greatest hits of Prague' tour most visitors will do. Star 4: Great beer at two Prague breweries with their own stories to tell. History AND a tasty beer buzz? YES. Star 5: I'm an architecture/history enthusiast and book collector - going 'behind the velvet ropes' and walking through the Strahov Monastery libraries is one of the highlights of my life - seriously. Bonus Star: I've been around the world and participated in some great tours before, Vadim is at the very top in terms of personality, passion and knowledge. Between Vadim and the tour itself you will have cocktail party stories for months. Just go ahead and book this tour right now.
I simply cannot say enough good about our guide, Vadim. He is an American who know lives in Prague, and he tailored the tour to my husband and mine's interests. The tour began at the gardens of the Wallenstein Palace, just below Prague Castle. Vadim provided context and background for the statues and gardens, which greatly added to our understanding an enjoyment of the location. From there, we went to the grounds of the Strahov Monastery, where we were able to go through the world famous library in a 'behind the lines' tour. There is an additional fee for this, payable to the library, but it is well worth it. The Strahov Library is simply one of the most breathtaking places I have ever witnessed. From there, we went to the Brevnov Monastery, which is now an active brewery. We learned a bit about the brewing process and were able to sample some of the beer made on site. It was absolutely one of our favorite days in Prague, and we highly recommend this tour, especially for bibliophiles!
The libraries and breweries were great and we had a very informative guide. I would have liked to see more of the Churches in these monasteries
