Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 532 reviews

Český Krumlov is super picturesque from all angles. Worth the 2.5 hours right. Guide takes you around the castle and village, then gives a 2 hour free time which was enough to explore the small village. Despite what other reviews said, the lunch was splendid and was one of my better meals in Czech all together.

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.

Both the guide and the driver were excellent. I had enough free time to visit the castle and wonder through the town.

Sophie is very entertaining and friendly. She has a lot of patience waiting for us taking photos .
