We couldn't recommend this tour enough. Pick up was from your accommodation, it's s small bus, you get a tour guide on the bus, whom is very informative of all your surrounds. giving commentary at all the main historic points along the way. 45min drive to castle. when you get to the castle, its small walk up to the castle. Once you arrive , you then go with another speaking guide, Ours was English The castle was ok. It last for one hour. after that tour finishes, you then can walk back to the main car park, at your pleasure looking at all the gift shops and eatery places along the way, they give you around one hour. which is long enough, then the bus trip back to Prague, once again commentary along the way. They then asked if we wanted to be dropped back at our apartment or somewhere else, we went to Old Prague. Our tour guide and bus driver were fantastic. would highly recommend this tour, well worth it.
It was so interesting to see the area near to Prague Ina comfortable touring bus... larger than a minivan but smaller than a full size bus. Our driver Radovan was an excellent driver, and made us fell entirely safe. The BEST part was the guide, the loquacious and knowledgeable Janna. She made the trip perfect... and kept us interested both en route to the castle and on the return. She answered all questions, spoke of life under communism, and looked up anything she didn't know. She has an amazing font of historical knowledge. Only unexpected downside was a rather long walk up to the castle through the town... not sure why they don't allow a drive up...... overall an exceptional tour at a very good price.
The driver was on time and was informative. We were lead up the mountain by the driver and then joined our English speaking tour of the Castle. It was amazing to see and the history of the Castle and the occupants over the years was very interesting. The Karlstejn town and Castle has a lot of atmosphere and romance about it. The Karlstejn Castle is hidden in the mountains which makes it a very interesting Castle to visit. The climb up the mountain is steep but manageable and was well worth the effort to see the spectacular Castle.
This tour offered much more than we expected. Our guide, Erika, shared her thorough knowledge of Czech history, culture, politics and folklore throughout the tour. The caves were an interesting, off the beaten path stop. The castle is a must see if your visiting Prague and this tour provided much more than a trip to castle. The traditional Czech lunch was also amazing. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun day trip from Prague.
Wonderful. Karen was a very knowledgeable, sweet, and helpful guide. She answered all our questions (we had many) and was incredibly welcoming and caring. Truly an excellent guide. Also, Karlstejn castle was beautiful and really fun for us to see as a lovely half day trip.
