Enjoyed the walk up to the castle, lots of fun shops along the way. The castle tour is very well presented, each tour guide waits for the previous guide to move to the next room and close the door before they start their explanation of the room you are in, nice to not see guides having to talk over each other. Had excellent food on the way back down from the castle. The horse carriage is a great option to get up to the castle for those not wanting to make the hike up the hill. Driver was great getting us to and from Prague on schedule and safely.

Moin Moin, we went with Pawel last week. He is a young driver and guide who told us a lot, but also responded individually to our wishes. We were lucky enough to only drive in threes and were therefore able to schedule our stops and waiting times ourselves. We found all three stops wonderful and had a lot of fun on the tour

Just the two of us plus our guide. We had a wonderful, quiet tour around the caves, and a castle tour and lunch topped off with a quick photo at a nearby viewpoint.

The castle tour was well presented and our driver was knowledgeable of the area, quite friendly and accommodating by picking us up at our hotel

Hanna and Paul were awesome. Tour’s were very fun and very informative. 5 Stars!
