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.

Knowledgeable guide

Even though we signed for English the tour was double the length with both Spanish and English. The guide was very knowledgeable. Then one couple. Was an hour late getting back to the bus we were left a few blocks in the dark from our motel the driver didn’t point us in any direction . Just a warning for the more elderly.
