This was an amazing and thorough tour. We were lucky enough to have no one else sign up for the tour so my husband and I had the wonderful tour guide, Dana, to ourselves. It was really cool that she had pictures of how things used to look and how they have changed over the years to supplement the different sights.

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.

This was unexpected and a lot of fun. We thought it would be a history tour, but it is more of a game that we really enjoyed. I enjoyed it so much that I went back the next day to do another VR experience.

The museum itself is small, but the building is historic, and being able to experience the cellar and pub is very cool.

Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable, friendly and has an obvious passion for the city.
