The guide, in addition to being very knowledgeable and friendly, spoke easy-to-understand English (considering that we don't speak English well); furthermore he was very helpful both with regards to the stages of physiological need and for the most beautiful places for us where we lost the most time for photos. What he showed us was in no way comparable to the amount spent and what's more it was very professional, given the low season, there were only 2 of us booked for that date and, as we couldn't change the day, we took the tour anyway. Thanks again, I would recommend this tour to everyone.

The trip with Raphael was truly exceptional. His captivating narrations of Prague's stories and histories kept us completely engrossed throughout the hike. We were swept away by the journey, utterly mesmerized by every step of the way. Time seemed to slip away unnoticed, and reaching the final destination felt surreal. Raphael ensured everyone was comfortable and in their own pace, adding to the overall enjoyment. Moreover, Saxon and Bohemia Switzerland proved to be astonishingly beautiful, akin to stepping into Narnia itself. The landscapes were breathtaking, truly making it a magical experience.

One of the best highlights of my trip, something very unique and different from city tours. I am glad, I came across this tour. Very well organised. Our guide was Michal, he was a gem, absolute delight. A very good photographer and was making sure everyone is comfortable and taking regular stops to accommodate everyone.The hike wasn't that tough. So beautiful. Luckily the weather was pleasant. Snacks, water and lunch with a drink was all included. Can't thank enough for such a memorable day. Highly Recommend

Cannot recommend this enough! Martin was an amazing guide & really went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed and were happy throughout the whole day. The views were stunning & accompanied by lots of great information from Martin. If I ever return to Prague, I would be tempted to do this again because it was such an enjoyable day!

The tour was a great experience, both the arch and bridge were easy beautiful walks. Lunch was at a restaurant in a small village and was delicious. Our guide Sam was fantastic, he has tons of energy and enthusiasm, as well as tons of knowledge about the history of the area.
