Jan our guide, picked us up in the morning perfect in time. we drove by car to our first stop for the Elbsandsteingebirge at the german side of the mountains. it was a short walk (500m) to the postcard view everybody knows. Nearly no tourist in the moning around, (Jan really made an ideal tour schedule for the whole day). The view was stunning and we had a lot of time for pictures. after this we drove by car to the czech side of the mountains to see the Prebisch-Door. For this we had a 2 km walk up to the side through the forrest (perfect air and very relaxed). Then we went back and we took a bus for a short ride to a restaurant for lunch. It was very delicious after the walking and hiking, a great stop to releax. Then we walked through the forrest for a boat-trip. The walk was stunning, because of the nature. The boat-ride was great and funny. And in the end we went by car back home. In total a great tour, well balanced by Jan (super friendly, informativ, great company)

It was a good trip, perfect time management, skip the line entrance to the tourist attractions, and we were able to see and discover so many places in one day, which would be impossible to do alone. The views are stunning. And the whole organizing company employees were friendly and easy going, arising questions were solved immediately and the whole tour was organized on a high professional level

Jan, my tour guide was really good and communicates well. It was a great trip with him. There was more of hiking, so definitely comfortable shoes are required. Though it was a rainy day, the tour guide Jan had all required equipments and had a great visit to the National park. Lovely location and great lunch and drinks.

Due to I got the E-ticket, I needed to go to the original (first stop) point to got on the bus. and I spent more time to went there. Suggest E-ticket also able to get on the bus at any hop-on-off bus stops instead of first stop.

Like a private tour. Pedro is extraordinary on connecting with you. Very good, the pictures don't do justice, we visit great places!
