This was our favorite tour we took on our 10 day trip. Cesky Krumlov is simply lovely and quaint. It's a very nice day to explore the town, enjoy a nice Czech lunch, shop a little, climb the tower and extensively tour the castle. Our tour guide was great and we had a simply wonderful day. Highly recommended.

What an amazing day trip!! The town was absolutely picturesque. The tour guide Micheala was also very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to be able to explore the town on our own.My husband and I would definitely recommend this trip!

Loved it! The guide was excellent, the countryside was beautiful all the fall colors helped a lot and the castle was magnificent. And, the best part is there were not so many tourist that you felt crowded or packed in like at so many others places. It was a LONG bicycle ride so it's not for those that aren't used to long distances.

Cesky Krumlov is an amazing town. It is a long day's trip from Prague, but worth the effort.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2017

It turned out to be about an 11 hour round trip from Warsaw, but well worth it. Our tour guide, Sarah, was friendly and very knowledgeable in this areas history. We were @ 16 passengers in a newer Mercedes mini-bus, so the long ride was comfortable. There aren't words to describe the beauty of this area, it's was like a fairy tale castle come alive. The only bad thing was that it was packed with tourists! This is one of those areas that if you have the time, spending a night there would be ideal. It must be divine once a lot of the tourists leave.

Great way to kick off the new year. Properly-paced and enough leisure time to wander around...the place isn't that large to begin with. For someone that absolutely has to get inside the castle, probably best not to take this tour during the winter months.
