The guide was great, very informative and knowledgable. She gave us a brief history of the Czech Republic on the way to the Church and there she was very engaging as well. The minibus picked us up from our hotel which was amazing. It was a bit dissapointing we were not allowed to take pictures inside the church, but otherwise a great experience. The tour involves more than just the bone church so definitely worth it :)

It was a lovely trip in which we learned a lot of interesting historical facts,. Our guide was really knowleadgeable and patient and mentioned a lot of curiosities. We also met a lovely couple from thr US, so it was a great experience from a social perspective as well. Bonus: the lunch (soup+main course+drink) was delicious :)

If you book online, the variety of options might seem overwhelming - so if you’re interested in the cheapest option, that includes the Ossuary for sure ;)

The voice guidance was really informative and added a lot to the experience.

Really amazing place, you won't need too long here but it is so incredible
