Our guide, Viktor, was awesome! At the beginning I was a bit troubled because of the delay pick-up, but during the trip he explained why and it’s totally understandable - traffic! The entire trip afterwards was really fun, he told everything from the history, building, foods, culture and more. A bit short time at Cezky Budejovice, only 15-30 mins in the town square. But Cezky Krumlov was wonderful, the garden, the view, the city tour, the lunch and beer (!), and the castle tour! Worth the long journey, for sure. Totally happy and satisfied with the trip, thank you Viktor! - Diana & Naresh (from The Netherlands)

Pickup was very efficient and our Guide Viktor was excellent, he gave very good information on the city of Prague, the countryside we travelled through and gave a brief tour of the outer exterior of the castle and gardens, along with showing us a few extra viewpoints in cresky Krumlov including the cathedral.

The guide is fantastic. Our guide was able to share lots of Czech culture and history with his fellows in a humoristic way. The lunch place we were taken to was unique, and the food there was tasty. Overall, it was a pleasant journey at a relaxing pace, which I definitely recommend it.

We went on a day trip from Prague to the magnificent town of Cesky Krumlov. Viktor Dvorak from citytours.cz was our guide and we found him to be professional, kind, informative and a very nice and pleasant man. We would highly recommend him.

Excellent knowledgeable guide. Beautiful and interesting village.
