I was the only person on the tour and Filip was my guide. He went out of his way to ensure that I had a really wonderful experience. We visited all the scheduled sites as well as giving me an insight into the extraordinary history of Czech on the way. He was punctual, friendly and very informative. Despite the wet weather I had the best time.

Really good overview of Czech sights and history

Really good overview of Czech sights and history, the locations to stop in were well chosen. Fillip was an excellent guide with a very good grasp of both Czech history and where it fit into wider European history. Also willing to take you a little off programme to see other areas of interest

We were fortunate to book the Christmas tour with glass blowing experience and have Marek as our guide. He is a well-travelled and very knowledgeable guide about his country. The tour itself was magical, so interesting and a great way to see something outside the city of Prague. I would highly recommend Marek and his company - we would not hesitate to get in touch with him should we return to the Czech Republic.
