Great tour, worth every penny. Lots of walking, so not ideal for those who may struggle. Tour doesn't include lunch, but guide takes you to an amazing restaurant (2 x 2 courses with drinks cost £22) Tour guide Nicolo gave loads of info and stories (also had a wry sense of humour) Only criticism was it was a good 10 mins brisk walk from the Old Town and across the river to get on the coach - maybe meeting point could be closer??

A tour worth taking!! Our tour guide Ian was energetic, engaged well with everyone. It was amazing to hear all the history of the mysterious bone church and the beauty of the Saint Barbra Cathedral and guided us to experience the best of Kutna Hura's culture ! Including an amazing restaurant for lunch !!

Overall, this was phenomenal! We had Ian as our guide and he was great, very knowledgeable, personable, and funny. I was initially annoyed when I booked the tour that we would have to spend a whole day outside of Prague just so I could spend 20 minutes at the Bone Chapel, but now having done it I don’t regret a second of it. Learning more about Kutna Hora and seeing outside of Prague really elevated our trip to the Czech Republic as a whole. The restaurant that is technically optional that they take you to was delicious; I highly recommend the Svićkova. It does involve a lot of walking, so do be prepared for that. Also, if you go in the winter like we did wear plenty of warm clothes, not many of the places visited have heating.
