    This is a brilliant trip from Prague we could not recommend it enough! Josef was a great tour guide who you could tell enjoyed what he did, on the journey there and throughout the day he was able to tell us about the history and answer any questions we had. Our driver Pavel was great too we were able to have a very enjoyable and fun day out. The whole trip was organized perfectly where we were able to avoid all the large crowds. We were able to do the trip at a pace that suited us while taking pictures and learning more about the amazing places. Every part of this trip the scenery was breathtaking so beautiful. I would definitely recommend wearing hiking boots to be more comfortable on the walks. Highly recommend this tour one of the highlights of our trip to Prague!

    The whole trip was incredible! Our guide, Eduard, picked us up from the lobby of our hotel where we go into very comfortable and spacious transport to Bohemian Switzerland. The car journey to the first destination was just under 2 hours but our guide talked us through all that we passed and gave us lots of information so it went quickly. Each stop thereafter were short journeys and the hiking was achievable but challenging and the views were breathtaking. We even stopped for a very traditional Czech lunch which was included in the price and filled us up ready to carry on our adventures. If you’re thinking about booking this trip - do it! So worth the money and the staff were excellent. Thank you so much Roman and Eduard !

    Be ready for a long walk (some inclines too). Amazing landscapes and scenery. The country side is too beautiful. Katy, our guide was cool and knowledgeable. We had two more families with us and Katy saw to it that all the guys stuck together and had fun. The trip was very well organised. I would surely recommend this team.
