Two beautiful towns- absolutely worth visiting....some tours only do Cesky Krumlov but that's a loss. Our guide Peter was superb- never put us under pressure, was always there to help and tell us about his country. The vehicle was very comfortable and it was good we came back through more rural roads and got a feel for the country. The meal was very good quality in a lovely building.

We did not have the excursion booked with the original tour operator who had not even bothered to warn us that the excursion had been canceled due to a lack of participants, we believe. We have thanks to Martin Tour and his guide Holyk, spent a very nice day Cesky Krumlov is worth a visit.

the trip was just awful! We were almost killed by a driver who either sat behind the wheel for the first day, or could not see without glasses, or there was no other explanation! We flew to the oncoming lane and it saved us that another driver managed to dodge. The mirror on the driver’s side was ripped off. Why did we fly to the oncoming lane? Because we rode with a clear excess of speed and entered a turn on a slope increasing speed, that is, almost in a drift. We demolished the mirror and another driver, we did not stop, and left the scene of an accident. When we arrived no driver no guide did not feel that something was wrong. Moreover, they claimed that another driver was to blame. I wonder how, if we flew into the oncoming traffic? The whole group was terrified. At our request to replace the driver or provide a safer transport, they were ignored - like if you want on another transport, please search for yourself. The guide didn’t say anything. The guide was something to compare.
