A great tour to do if you are on your...

My guide Peter was really very good. I had told him I hadn't seen snow before. He actually drove a different way back to Prague so I could experience the beauty of it in the forest and the rural areas. The glass factory was very quaint ,informative and the prices are very reasonable. I am here with my husband who is working and this was a great tour to do on my own.

The visit was excellent and the tour guide, Eva very knowledgeable.

We visited Nizbor factory and It was an interesting tour. Shown all stages about the glass. We were also given opportunity to buy bohemian crystal at the shop at reasonable prices than you would find in the city of Prague. I bought quite a lot of stuff. The driver and the guide were excellent and I would do that your again. I'm definitely coming back.

Very well organized and very pleasant!

A very nice excursion! The welcome is warm and the visit to the crystal factory is really interesting. If you come to visit the Czech Republic, do not hesitate to make a small detour by the crystal glassworks of Nizbor, for half a day. You will be accompanied by a friendly and dynamic French-speaking guide. The journey is not very long and allows you to admire the pretty landscapes. Arrived at Nizbor, it is another guide who makes the visit. You can admire the magnificent work that is done, and also bring back many memories. We no longer know where to turn because it is so beautiful. You will even have small gifts on your arrival. Recommended visit, it's worth the detour :-)!
