This tour was amazing. I forgot the guide’s name but she was enthusiastic and gave us so much information. Will do it again if given the chance. I’m sorry I forgot the tour guide’s name but she also spoke Spanish.

This was a fabulous tour - perfect amount of bus riding/listening while driving and then time in the city itself. Even though it's a bit of a treck from Prague, it's absolutely worth it if you have the time. Vienna is amazing. Great sight seeing, history, architecture and shopping. Loved it all.

Our guide Peter was fantastic.The ride from Prague does take over 3 hours and Peter made sure we were comfortable and shared his knowledge of the history, the countryside and the customs of the people to make the ride to and from seem to take less time than it actually did. I would definitely recommend this tour and Peter in particular.
