What people are saying about Kutná Hora

Great 7 hr day trip on Oct 5 with private guide and car for our group of 3 . Our guide Michela was a professional guide. On time picking us up in lobby of our hotel. Clean comfortable car and safe driver. Knew the sites and provided engaging, interesting feedback. Took us to a great local lunch spot. Walked us through the old town (a bonus we weren't expecting) and was very familiar with everything. When we returned (on time) to Prague, she recommended beers at a monastery by the Prague Castle and a one way walk back to our hotel over the Charles Bridge (our request). We arrived safely back to our hotel. Great day trip (Bone Church is smaller than you think so not much more than a 15 min tour) and easy to see all 3 churches and the old town and have lunch in a 6-7hr day (about 1 hr drive each way from Prague). $107US/person, plus tip. Good ahead and choose the private tour/car. Ask for Michala. Her English was perfect and she's very friendly.

We had a marvellous day out with our guide. The church of bones was one off my bucket list but the cathedral and local town were an added bonus - beautiful and great to explore. The guide was lovely, very knowledgeable and let us explore when needed and answered all our questions. Highly recommended.

Mr. Prem is a real expert who may turn every little thing in Kutna Hora into every precious thing. He knows all the history behind the city and buildings. Terrific having a tour with such a great guide.

Prem was an excellent and extremely knowledgeable guide. An absolute delight to spend a morning and afternoon with.

Great tour and a nice opportunity to “get out of town”
