The place is beautiful and worth visiting. We went with the guide Victor and he, in addition to being super attentive, knows everything about the history of Prague and the Czech Republic. We get to know a lot about the country and the various social, economic and political transformations. Ask Victor for your guide.

Excellent excursion, very good guide and transportation. The visit to glass factories makes no sense, it was also closed. Lunch is not good and it is outside the tourist area, it is better not to buy it in the package and you can have it wherever you choose and at any time you want.

Brilliant value for money

Our tour guide - Jan - was very well versed in all the history and cultural of Karlovy Vary, and very informative. He answered all our questions and speaks a smattering of languages so was able to accommodate everyone on the tour.

it was worth it

Recommended excursion for those who are more than three days in Prague. The guide was very attentive the entire time the excursion lasted.

Excellent visit, it is one of the places that cannot be missed in the Czech Republic. Our guide Viktor very knowledgeable about the city.
