We enjoyed the brewery a lot. They give a great tour there. We recommended the brewery tour to everyone we saw. The glass factory was amazing. You get to walk through the factory and watch them working. This was a great experience. Our only negative was our driver for the day. My husband and I were the only people on this tour. The driver talked to a lot, he shared many opinions,used foul language, and his driving was not our style. My only real complaint was that he gave us a few minutes to shop at the glass factory. He told us we had to get to the next tour. We quickly made choices without looking at the many items available. I felt very rushed and I had been looking forward to buying from the factory, not a tourist shop in town. When we arrived at the brewery he drove us around and showed us the city. When we got to the brewery our tour didn't begin for 30 min.When I realized we had this extra time, I was annoyed by the rush at the glass factory. Tell the driver you want to shop!
The city tour through Pilsen was very interesting. Our guide Martin was very knowledgeable and was able to bring us closer to the history of the city, current developments and Czech culture. He also recommended restaurants, cafes and bars, which we visited during our further stay. The know-how of a true connoisseur pays off here if you want to get to know the insider tips or the preferences of the locals outside of the tourist hotspots. All in all a great tour with valuable tips!
The visits to the crystal factory and the brewery were led by an English-speaking guide even though we had a French-speaking guide during the transport. Our guide was not authorized to give us information in French even if occasionally he was able to give us some information and written documentation in French (initiative greatly appreciated). Lunch was ok.
A very good tour. We had a great guide (Martin) who spoke perfect German and was able to answer all our questions about Pilsen
Would recommend this trip to anyone visiting Prague.
