Well, I started the day when a driver came to pick me up from Dresden to meet with the rest of the group (we were total of 3 guys.) as I was the only one arriving from Dresden. (quite nice of the guide to allow that, as just this would cost more than what I paid.) We started with seeing the Bastei, a real marvel of both nature and man made bridge - I did not expect enjoying this much from it, but I did. Jan, our guide and the owner of the company did everything he can to help us enjoy the experience, including lots of jokes, and offering to take our pictures whenever we want. Next, we went to see what I was most expecting, the great Pravčická Archway, another wonder of nature, and the biggest one in Europe. absolutely lovely. the walk up is not easy, but not hard as well, and quite beautiful so not boring. we had a drink in a nice place right below the archway and continued down. From there, we continued to eat. 5\5 and then, the Gorge, which is beautiful to walk through.

It was absolutely amazing! The trip was very well planned and timings were perfectly matched so we don't encounter a lot of crowd. our guide Joseph was very knowledgeable,funny and he talked us through a lot of stuff even as we were driving. Paul drove us to the places and they both were absolutely delightful and friendly company. our guide told us a lot of tales of area, and the history. the snacks and lunch was provided and it was all in all a perfect trip! we walked for over 20k steps but we had ample stops and we were encouraged to go by our pace. it was perfect perfect day trip!

Highly recommended activity especially for nature lovers. The tour took us to beautiful places with the most spectacular views. The river boat ride looks like what you see in fairy tales. Joseph and his colleague have been very knowledgeable about the place and been extremely helpful and attentive. We definitely enjoyed their company and this trip. I would love to do this again. There is quite a walk so it’s best to stretch out.

The trip was fantastic!!! Joseph and Paul are very friendly, kind, knowledgeble and fun people and I enjoyed every single minute of it. We visited gorgeous sites and walked around the river in the early spring in April. Can not recommend the trip more! Plus the snacks are enless :)

Super fun way to get a tour of the city. Sebastian and the girl co-guided were both very friendly, as we're the other people who joined the tour.
