Amazing tour! Beautiful sights. Loved that it was a small group. The hosts- drivers and tour guide were all so nice and full of knowledge about the areas. The price may seem a bit high, but it is worth it. You get picked up from your accomodations, snacks and water in the car. Friendly conversation. All tickets to the different parks are paid for. They pay for a drink of your choice at a place with a great view. As well as a paid lunch. Full 10-12 hour day of activities. Went by very fast!

This trip was the absolute highlight of my 4 day stay in Prague, the group was international, small, active, polite, and friendly. The tour guide was absolutely fantastic!! Jan is from the area and was able to tell us lots about the different places, very helpful taking photos, polite and funny. I totally recommend this trip, especially if you are traveling solo!!

Amazing sights, fantastic guides and absolutely worth the money! All entry fees and food and beverages were already paid for and the lunch was delicious. 10/10, would go again!
