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)

We took a couple hour drive with a group of 6 people along with our driver and tour guide. We were taken to this medieval-looking town which was BEAUTIFUL. Much of it was closed due to COVID; however, we still had a lovely experience. If you can- make it up to the top of the tower. You won’t regret all the steps it took to get to the breath-taking view!

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 activity. The guide and driver Viktor, very well prepared and always willing to cooperate to make this activity a first class

Excellent knowledgeable guide. Beautiful and interesting village.
