Karlovy Vary Tour from Prague with Lunch
- Small group
- Pickup available
- Duration options: 9 - 10 hours
Upon arrival, you’ll be taken through the facility by the spa staff. Soak in a private beer bath for two while drinking unlimited Bernard beer. Then, relax on the heated bed while, of course, enjoying more beer. In private rooms, gear up for a unique experience with friends, your loved one, or in a tub all to yourself. Beer baths are a medical procedure from the Middle Ages, known to cleanse the pores, increase pulmonary circulation, regenerate skin and hair, and revitalize the nervous system. It is necessary to maintain the correct temperature, length, and ratio of ingredients to ensure maximum health benefits. The bathing experience takes place in special tubs and is regulated by professional staff. The experience lasts about an hour — opting for the beer massage adds an extra half hour. At the end of your rejuvenating visit, you will receive a bottle of Bernard Beer with a historic...
Trip was excellent! Only downside is the temperature of the water is extremely hot so we had to cool it down before getting in. Also, the unlimited beer is helles, would be nice to have options of Lager or Darker beer. The staff was awesome and friendly. A great time!
On this 9.5-hour excursion, you’ll be picked up at your Prague hotel and head off on a drive to the largest and most popular spa town in the Czech Republic. The history of this Bohemian town dates back to the 14th century. Today, Karlovy Vary is also well known for its film festival, which takes place every year. Enjoy a walk along the colonnade through the historic center, where you’ll find the thermal springs. The most famous of the springs, Vřídlo, spurts boiling hot water to a height of 12 meters. Sample the healthful waters and enjoy a 3-course lunch, before taking some time on your own to visit a spa house or the renowned Jan Becher Museum. At the end of the tour, you’ll head back to Prague and the driver will then drop you off in the city center or at your hotel.
My mother and I booked a last minute trip to Karlovy Vary and fell in love with the town. Quite honestly, I wish you could leave me here permanently! It's a beautiful midieval spa town in the middle of the Bohemian valley, stuck in time, with 18 natural mineral springs and geysers. Absolutely picturesque! We also stopped at the Moser glass factory to see how the famous glass works are made. The only downside is that you don't have too much free time to spend on your own. I don't think the lunch portion is necessary, and then you'd have more free time to explore and maybe visit a spa for a few hours. Regardless, the tour is well worth it. A must see!

Radim was wonderful! He asked me what I wanted to see and designed a route with those highlights! As well he made sure to include some areas off the beaten path so I could see all of Prague. He explained what all the buildings were around the city, included fun facts and even gave me some tips for later that day to re-visit. He also is a wonderful photographer and captured a few great photos during our run!
