Full description
Karlovy Vary is the best known spa town in the Czech Republic, and its history dates to the 14th century and the reign of Charles IV. The healing powers of the local springs enticed notables such as the Russian Tsar Peter the Great and the German poet Goethe. The spa town is also known for the production of world-renowned Moser crystal, Carlsbad porcelain, and the traditional Czech herb liqueur, Becherovka. On this full-day excursion from Prague you’ll enjoy a guided tour of the town center and marvel at the most famous geyser, Vřídlo Sprudel, gushing its mineral waters to a height of nearly 12 meters! After this you’ll be free to explore the town on your own.

We had decided spontaneously for this trip just a day prior. Booking was excellent handled. Pick up and transfer to the starting point of the trip had some hurdles as a new, bigger bus needed to be organized which caused some frustration (not at us but the driver). So it took us quite some time to actually get started with the tour. Our group consisted of Spanish and Russian people plus some English folks like us. We had two guides with us. Guide-wise it was perfectly fine. We received plenty of information and our guide, Elena, was kind of cute too. The stop at the glass factory and the tour through their production facilities was impressive and hot. Hot because of the open ovens and liquid glass everywhere. Respect to their employees! Not the nicest work environment. After this we went to the centre of Karlovy Vary and discovered all nine of their Kolonades (hot and mineralized water sources). Again, sufficient background information not to get bored. We also had included a lunch.

Die Reiseleiterin Tatjana hat ihre Sache sehr gut gemacht und sich sehr um die Gäste bemüht. Schade war, dass uns nicht schon bei der Buchung mitgeteilt wurde, dass die Glasmanufaktur Moser am Ostermontag nicht zu besichtigen ist. So haben wir für eine Leistung bezahlt, welche wir nicht erhalten haben. Zudem wurde dadurch der Aufenthalt in Karlsbad etwas lang.
