The guide was great, very informative and knowledgable. She gave us a brief history of the Czech Republic on the way to the Church and there she was very engaging as well. The minibus picked us up from our hotel which was amazing. It was a bit dissapointing we were not allowed to take pictures inside the church, but otherwise a great experience. The tour involves more than just the bone church so definitely worth it :)

It was a lovely trip in which we learned a lot of interesting historical facts,. Our guide was really knowleadgeable and patient and mentioned a lot of curiosities. We also met a lovely couple from thr US, so it was a great experience from a social perspective as well. Bonus: the lunch (soup+main course+drink) was delicious :)

A very relaxing tour, just enough time spent at all the places. Mieke (?) our guide, was very chill, and gave up all the local info as we leisurely strolled through Kutna Hora. Both churches were incredible, for different reasons. Lunch was tasty, and the small group tour was very congenial.

Tour guide was great! The experience definitely worth it and the ride and views to and from here are nice and filled with information. Also the food we had on the way is nice. Definitely worth it

Excellent tour with a very knowledgeable guide highly recommended
