Full description
Karlovy Vary is the best known spa town in the Czech Republic, and its history dates to the 14th century and the reign of Charles IV.

Nice day trip

The tour guide Tatjana did a very good job and took great care of the guests. It was a shame that we were not informed at the time of booking that the Moser glass factory was not open to visitors on Easter Monday. So we paid for a service that we did not receive. It also made the stay in Karlovy Vary a bit long.

Nice get-away with some cultural and local insights.

We had decided spontaneously for this trip just a day prior. Booking was excellent handled. Pick up and transfer to the starting point of the trip had some hurdles as a new, bigger bus needed to be organized which caused some frustration (not at us but the driver). So it took us quite some time to actually get started with the tour. Our group consisted of Spanish and Russian people plus some English folks like us. We had two guides with us. Guide-wise it was perfectly fine. We received plenty of information and our guide, Elena, was kind of cute too. The stop at the glass factory and the tour through their production facilities was impressive and hot. Hot because of the open ovens and liquid glass everywhere. Respect to their employees! Not the nicest work environment. After this we went to the centre of Karlovy Vary and discovered all nine of their Kolonades (hot and mineralized water sources). Again, sufficient background information not to get bored. We also had included a lunch.

An exceptional guide

There are destinations that can disappoint a bit, because you had set too many expectations, or because it wasn't "your day", or because you've already traveled a lot and the bar is very high..., I don't know. But that is easily fixed when you are lucky enough to run into an exceptional guide, because of their knowledge, because of their character, they simply make that destination leave an indelible mark. Thank you Diane.
