The tour itself was good. Our guide was nice, maybe a little quiet with details at times. Her husband was the driver. A little time in Cesky Krumlov to explore would have been nice. There was a lot of confusion and mix up with the pickup location and who to contact for clarification. Had our lodging accommodation not reached out I don’t think we would have made the tour. The contact information provided in emails never worked and was always sent back. I had to reach out through the website and even called once. The email responses from GYG on the pickup details were not always the same.

Nous avions réservé le tour pour la journée à Cesky Krumlov et Ceské Budejovice en français mais à notre arrivée le tour était malheureusement en anglais. Nous avons regretté le peu de temps de visite libre dans les deux villes (1h30 à Cesky Krumlov lunch inclus et 20 minutes à Ceské Budejovice). C'était un peu la course tout au long de la journée. Cesky Krumlov est une petite ville pleine de charme et cela vaut vraiment la peine de la visiter. La visite guidée du Château de Cesky Krumlov était aussi très intéressante et nous avons apprécié les excellentes connaissances de notre guide.

Pickup was very efficient and our Guide Viktor was excellent, he gave very good information on the city of Prague, the countryside we travelled through and gave a brief tour of the outer exterior of the castle and gardens, along with showing us a few extra viewpoints in cresky Krumlov including the cathedral.
