This day trip is a fine way to see another off-the-beaten path part of the Czech Republic that most tourists don't normally get the chance to experience.
Despite the rain, the hike through the forest was enjoyable - great to get away from all the tourists in the city. Great scenery and our guide, Marik, was friendly and knowledgeable. Lunch was very good with several choices. The 13km hike wasn and #39;t very strenuous for a couple of 60 yr olds.
This was very different than what I was anticipating but I loved it none the less! First of all it is not an historical tour per se. Mark translated name will be more than willing to answer questions you might have but its more of an outdoorsy adventure like tour which was a surprisingly welcomed change. The drive was peaceful and comfortable Mark provided us with snacks at the start of our trip which I thought was nice touch. It is a ways away from he city but the end result is totally worth it. You will get to see both the Switzerland National Park on the Czech side Bohemian and the German side Saxson. Lunch was fantabulous I know not a word but it was amazing. It was a very chilly day and the restaurant was nice and toasty and everything was delicious. Basted was the most beautiful place. I got some of the most breathtaking views of my trip at this location. IT is absolutely a must see. Moreover there is history embedded in such an amazing view which was an added treat.
Before I end this review I want to note that Northern Hikes customer service is one to be rivaled! They were very communicative form begging to end. My hotel was outside of their pick-up zone but they reimbursed me for the cost of the cab ride. Also even though they did not pick me up because I was outside of the zone they did provide a ride back to my hotel which was great since they trip is a full day and you are getting back pretty late int he day. It was my most expensive tour during my trip but I have not regrets. You absolutely get what you paid for which is a great tour and excellent customer service!!!
AMAZING. This is one of my most treasured memories from our vacation. Marek was our guide and was wonderful. It was beautiful and exhilarating and everything I hoped it would be. We did the longer excursion and though we're no athletes by any stretch of the imagination we did just fine. It was just under 10 miles but it's at a leisurely pace. We would do this again in a heartbeat.
The tour guides and the tour itself more than met our expectations. We enjoyed the day, the commeraderie they engendered, and the meal toward the end of the trip. We recommend this tour without hesitation.
Rainy day but still worth it. The rain and clouds made it so we didn't get the 'picture perfect' spot at the top, but it was still definitely worth it. The entire clouds / mist gave the forest and the surroundings an amazing, almost magical feeling. Definitely recommend if you don't mind a bit of a drive from Prague.
Wonderful day trip from Prague, nature at its best with gorgeous views.
Our guide Marek was great and the lunch was very good also.
Our guide was really friendly and took extra time to answer questions as we hiked. The hike was a perfect break from the city and the views were awesome. Highly recommended.
Guide arrived promptly at our hotel and drove to the National Park. Since we were her only passengers on that day's tour, she easily made allowances for the weather she combined the best of the winter and summer options and our reduced walking ability. We really appreciated her professionalism and good humor during the full day tour.
If you visit Prague and want to spend a day away from the city this is the way to go. I did the small tour all day hike with our guide Pavla and the tour exceeded all expectations. The scenery was SPECTACULAR!! Through the hills to the Pravcicka Brana, through the quaint village then down into the gorge then to the 20 minute dinghy ride.
The hike itself was about 10 miles on easily negotiable paths. I and #39;m not an avid hiker by any stretch and was able to manage quite well. Admiring the views along the way is enough to inspire you to continue on and there was ample time for pictures and breaks. The lunch by the way was fabulous with some great options for some local specialties.
This tour was absolutely the highlight of my trip to Prague. Thanks again for a great day and wonderful memories.
