Pavel was an excellent guide throughout the tour. In addition to a responsible driver throughout the journey. He was very punctual and flexible when it came to taking breaks or buying something in a store. He knows a lot about the history of Prague and Krumlov. He speaks very good English so he understood what he was saying perfectly. We are a very good group of Canadians, Americans and a Japanese woman. I recommend this tour because it is breathtakingly beautiful. Hopefully they will play with Pavel and this tourism agency. Inside the castle we had a guide who speaks English and Spanish but it was all in the first language. There were guides written in various languages. Thanks for this beautiful ride

It was a great trip. We stopped and spend half an hour on the main square of Ceske Budejovice for pictures and then went to Cesky Krumlov for lunch and sightseeng. The guide was very nice, talk all the way telling us interesting stuff about Czech history, way of life, and social issues. It was very informative and useful to understand Czech culture and people. Cesky Krumlov is another must-see gem after Prague. This one-day with the option of two days stay trip is ideal for people like as who has only a couple of days in Prague. I definitely recommend.

Transportation was very good not crowded. On our way, our guide gave us information about our location and our destination. Because the drive was long, he ensured that we had enough time to stretch our legs and use facilities. Our walk in ceske budejovice was very pleasant and informative. The lunch in ceske kimlov was delicious. As far as the tour goes, Pavel continued to be thoughtful, taking us to great photo spots and informative. The sights and history was amazing. Pavel was also very contentious about keeping us together

Very lovely place to visit, and a very helpful guide Thanks! We are very happy that we booked this tour I recommend to everyone!

we were a small group. The driver/ guide was very gently.
