What to expect
  • Board your air-conditioned coach in central Prague or opt for hotel pickup. Then, journey into the Czech countryside to begin your tour. As you travel, listen as your guide talks about Czech crystal, formerly known as Bohemian crystal. This traditional crystal is cut into everything from decorative glass vases and champagne flutes to ornaments and is a popular fixture in Czech homes. Tradition has it that the crystal brings peace and warmth, and that gazing through it can boost people’s concentration. Arrive at the Bohemia glass factory in the town of Nizbor on the Berounka River. Hear how the riverside glassworks has been turning out fine, leaded Czech crystal since 1903 using time-honored techniques. Head inside and take a fascinating guided tour. Visit the melting furnaces to watch the skilled craftspeople in action: blowing and bending the hot, molten glass into an array of graceful shapes. Continue to the cutting workshops to see the glass being shaped, hand-cut and hand-painted into the finished article—shimmering, delicately carved crystal glasses, dishes, ornaments and more. Afterward, admire the exquisite pieces on sale in the showroom for factory prices, and take advantage of the discounts to buy some items as mementos. Later, return to Prague, where your tour finishes.

Booked, paid and cancelled with no notification
We booked this through trip advisor a 36 hours ahead. Didn't receive any notification the next day, called the tour agent and they said it was cancelled due to not enough people without notifying us. Furthermore the agent said we would get a refund from trip advisor, but on trip advisor they have a 24 he cancellation policy and the agent hadn't even notified trip advisor.

The tour agent also tried to up sell us on another more expensive tour.

Trip advisor eventually refunded us the money, but had to spend an hour on the phone just to sort out.

Glass Factory
Feb 2018 • Friends
This was the first trip my sister and I had booked for our break to Prague. We had visited glass factories before, so were quite excited to learn about the history of Czech crystal.

We were collected from our hotel on time, but unfortunately we realised quite quickly that the driver and the mini bus had a very strong smell of body odour......being very cold outside we couldn't easily justify opening a window on our journey. Very unpleasant, but it was lovely to see the countryside outside of the hustle and bustle of Prague.

It would've been nice to have had a little more information about the surrounding area on the way to Nizbor, but understandably the driver's English was very limited.

The tour ended up being just the two of us, which was nice as we didn't have to fight to see any of the processes. The lady taking us round showed us each station but didn't really go into much detail and instead let us stand and watch a while.

We found it very interesting as both my sister and I are very into arts and crafts, but I think if you didn't know much about the glass making process, you may have left this tour not knowing a huge amount more than before you started!

The end products were beautiful, but we spent more time on the road in a smelly minibus, than learning about the glass making process.

I'm here to review the tour inside the glass factory, not companies doing tours to Nizbor.
This tour is really bad, the girl just takes you to see the people working, no explanation. Just go ahead and keep on directly to Plzen. Don't waste time and money there. History about bohemian glass? you won't get it here.

Great Way to Spend a Half Day While Visiting Prague
Oct 2017 • Couples
This was our first excursion outside Prague while visiting the city. After spending 2 days walking and exploring Prague, it was nice getting out of the city for a few hours. As it was only my husband and I booked for the tour on the day we went, our tour guide was devoted entirely to us. We were able to ask many questions about Prague in general; the guide was very knowledgeable and provided lots of history and facts about Prague and and the Czech Republic. The tour of the glass factory was very interesting. We were joined at the factory by a couple of other tours, which made our group tour of the factory quite large. We were still able to get much information about the factory and watch the workers during the various stages of the process. Also came back with a couple items from the factory store! If you have a few hours to spare while in Prague, I would recommend this tour.
