Even though my husband is Czech, my own Czech as a Brit could be better... We got up very early and raced across the city to get to the english tour....what a waste of time. The tour was 15 minutes long, if that! At the end we got three shots of the different kinds of becherovka. For the price of... More

Our guide was very friendly and full of information. We enjoyed the video and loved the gift shop. We got to taste 5 different kinds of Becherovka. I would definitely recommend it.

I haven't decided yet, If I like it or not. The place has very nice and friendly atmosphere, but there's nothing much to see. I expect factory - style museum, but it's just few old bottles, cups, medals, figurines etc. At the end you watch interesting movie and try 3 kind of Becherovka liquor. If I should decide again, I...

The exposition is dated, in bad 80s museums style of setting the things. With such a legendary brand its a pity. The guide was nice, but even her good humor couldn't change the whole impression. Go to museum shop directly - buy some bottle and designers Becherovka glass. The drink itself will not disappoint you ... unlike the museum.

I am a big fan of Becherovka, but there was not a lot of things to see in this museum. A few exhibits and a video, then tasting at the end (you get to taste 3 kinds of Becherovka, unfortunately you can not choose which ones you prefer). There is a shop where you can buy souvenirs as well. While... More

The place is famous for Becherovska drink and the museum shows us why. It details how the drink came into existence and about its finders. In the end, they also have a tasting session. I am not very sure if people visiting Karlovy Vary will prefer this place to the grand outdoors. But if you have time to kill, this... More

The famous alcoholic and herbal drink Becherovka is made in this town. The tour shows you how the drink is made and gives you a fascinating history. We don't like this drink, but the tour was very interesting. Only two people in the world know the formula for making this drink.
