Chloe E.
Cesky Krumlov from Prague: drive was super comfortable. We were only 4 adults and the driver who acted as a guide. We learnt some history of the town, walked along the cobbled streets, did some window shopping, stopped for lunch. I would not call this a typical Czech meal, but was glad we didn't eat much as there's some uphill walking and stairs to get to the Castle. Inside the castle we had an English speaking guide. After the castle tour we had some free time, just coffee and a pastry and then we went to Ceske Budejovice. It was OK for a day trip but given the chance Cesky Krumlov merits 2 days at least.

The tour was very professional and informative. We were on the road with Edita Mackova and learned an incredible amount about the history, the wonderful architecture and culture of Česky Krumlov and received many tips for further activities. We were thrilled and can highly recommend this tour with Mrs. Mackova.

This was a most memorable experience. Our tour guide, Rene, was easily understood. His breadth of historical knowledge and the humor he brought to the information sharing was very appreciative. He knew how to navigate the venue, when to arrive and where to take the best photos. This town was truly breathtaking!

We loved it. Had a great tour with a very nice guide. The lady spoke fluent German and not only showed us the "obvious" sights, but also revealed many little secrets and insiders of Krumau. We can only recommend the tour.

Lukas provided an excellent tour of CK old town, the Castle and “new” town. He had very good historical and local knowledge and made sure we covered all the significant sites and sights! These are small group tours and on this occasion it 1:1. Worth every cent to have this personal experience.

The first part of the tour is a lot of uphill walking and the garden has nothing much to see. Preferred to be given more time at the photo spot as it is crowded and will take time but only given 10mins. Guide was good to attend to both English and Spanish travellers but travellers expected to catch up. He does not wait for all to arrive before doing the explanation at the sights. Had about 3hours+ of free time and it was good for a meal and walk around in the town. Did not join the castle tour which some said were worth it. Overall the view was awesome and still worth making a trip. Will recommend.

guide (forgot her name sorry) was really nice. would have been nice to have a bit more history of the country explained but that's maybe just me. beautiful location and recommend a visit. only thing to note is if you want to tour the castle then skip lunch and go and book the tour as it's only at certain times in English and you can't just wonder around on your own I was told ...

Overall, very good. Our guide, Karolina, was knowledgeable and enthusiastic. My major complaint was the failure to state that the castle and baroque theater were closed for the season. We were extremely disappointed. There should have been a disclaimer in the advertisement!
