I liked it was not too long, there were said just really important points on the tour. Tour included degustation, We got three products, and there was a possibility to pay 30 crowns for tasting other. I liked Cordial the most. =)

Tour is well arranged, has lots to show and after that you'll see film with liqueur tasting. You will get a chance to taste all 5 Becherovka brands and movie isn't very long, so be careful if you've rented a car. Staff speaks good English and knows what they're talking about. I would definately recommend

The almost whole guided tour was about how good are new tastes of Becherovka and how cool it is Jan Becher. Very little about history. Degustation was good - three tastes were provided.

The musium is small and gives a glimps of how it all started. A very nice and short experiance. We had a nice time. The people are very friendly and you get to taste the becherovka, the fanouse czec drink.

We had an English tour, guide was kind and friendly, but tour was kind of short. Tasting was great for us, Becherovka lovers.You can also personalize your own bottle of Becherovka, which can be a great souvenir, I did it. Overall , it was a nice experience and cheap. You get four shots and tour for 5 euros !

Interesting presentation about history of herbal liquer, especially with degustation on the end. Movie was bit like advertise. Place with some tint of mystery hidden in herbal mixture.

I am a Becherovka fun so it was must to visit the museum. Unfortunately it was not scheduled English language tour just only Czech so we have not understand anything with my wife. The museum is small and not really interesting but the tasting was fine, the lemon taste Becherovka was new for me and really good!

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.
