Finally have the time to write a long overdue review for our wonderful tour with Pavel and Petr in April. I feel that this tour is not advertised enough, and my father and I truly had an excellent time. The tour is fully customized, starting at a time of hour convenience. After being picked up in our Mercedes, the day begins with a private tour of the beautiful Strahov monastery library. While throngs of tourists looked in from a distance, we had the library completely to ourselves. This is an experience you simply can't get from visiting on your own. To see the art and artifacts up close in person was truly a treat. After this excursion the rest of your time with private car and guide are fully customizable. We had the option of going to Prague castle and Vysehrad, however since we had already visited these well known attractions, our guide made some great suggestions. We had wanted to visit the Prague Loreto, which was our next stop and was truly a pleasure, no tourists, beautiful. The between the Loreto carved house, 6000 diamond monstrance and life size crucifix of Christ in a gown, the gallery and church were full of great art and oddities. After this we took our guides suggestion to visit the Church of Cyril and Methodius, the site where the Nazis gunned down the assassins of Reinhard Heydrich, plenty of WWII history and memorials to the heroes. We never should've visited this church without the great suggestion of our guide. Never did we feel rushed. This tour should be advertised more because it is truly excellent. Never did we feel rushed, and really got to see some off the beaten path attractions, however please note you will be ferried in style to any attraction of your choice with a licensed driver and guide. I could not recommended this tour enough, excellent tour company and excellent guides. Thank youso much Pavel for a wonderful, memorable time. This was one of the most memorable days of our trip!

Prague is perhaps the most beautiful city in Europe if not the world. The eastern European countries were pleasant surprises for us. Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, and Slovenia were beautiful. The people were friendly and helpful, the cost of goods were affordable, and the cities and country sides were lovely. Viator arranged a private showing of the Monastary and their libraries for our family. I knew that Viator had arranged a tour for our family but when we arrived the people shut down the place just for us and we received a guided tour of the entire place, We felt a bit uncomfortable as other people were looking in from the hall as we toured. But it was amazing. The libraries are used in many films like James Bond and more recently Outlander Season 2. Prague as a city is iconic. The downtown area is highlighted by a cobblestoned plaza complete with outdoor cafe's and decorative shops. Breath taking city.
