Nice trip, too bad that in winter the castle is closed

We booked this tour for February 13, aware that the castle would be closed. It was however a nice tour since the town is very picturesque and you can visit the castle exhibition and climb the tower where you can enjoy a beautiful view. The very knowledgeable guide spoke English and Italian. It would have been nice to have a little more time to visit the characteristic shops.

Wonderful day excursion

Excellent trip to and from Česky Krumlov. Very comfortable mini van. Martin was an outstanding guide along the two hour ride to Česky Krumlov. He explained areas and buildings along the way as well as giving a nice guided tour in Česky Krumlov. Highly recommended.

An engaging and interesting day out.

It was disappointing that the guide shared more of his own activities in life than engaging in detailed commentary about the location.

Impressive lovely world heritage worth visit!

We enjoyed walking around Cesky Krumlov town. Every turn has something to offer. Beautiful scenery!

Sophie is very entertaining and friendly. She has a lot of patience waiting for us taking photos .
