Great tour. We had an excellent guide in Vladamir. Had a group of 7 people which was excellent. The glass factory is a tour that you dont want to miss. The brewery tour was excellent, as I had longed to visit. Also an excellent lunch at a restaurant owned by Mr. Tomas Hanak, Prague's gift to Hollywood. Great trip.

We paid more for this tour than any on our month-long trip to Poland, but was looking forward to it. In a nutshell, the two destinations were great, informative, and fun. But the tour provider (Grey line tours I think) was beyond inept. The driver picked us up late from our hotel. On the way to the glass factory he got several calls about neglecting to pick up 3 passengers (swerving all over road while talking on phone). Driver couldn't find our restaurant for lunch and pulled over several times to ask locals for directions, sometimes driving wrong way down one-way streets. Lunch was nice once we got there.

Driving to the brewery was a joke too. We passed the brewery entrance (which was clearly marked) several times, which would have been funny, except we were already running late to catch the last English tour of the day. By the time he figured out the brewery entrance and dropped us off, the only tour left was in German. Thankfully the only 2 people on that tour understood English, and the tour guide spoke enough broken English to attempt. I felt so sorry for our guide as he struggled for words at times, but he did a remarkable job under the circumstances.

When finally returning to Prague we learned that we would be dropped off far from our hotels, and it would be up to us to find our way back. We all protested and insisted on being dropped back to our places of pickup. The driver even called his manager so we could talk to him ourselves, but shortly into the conversation he hung up on us. Everyone was livid. A $10 taxi ride got us back.

Go visit these sites, but we strongly suggest you use a different tour company to take you!!!

Peter was our guide and was very nice. He seemed a little out of it but I think he was just tired. The arrival/start experience was a little odd checking into a kiosk on the side of the road but once the tour got started, it was fine. The gray line part was just OK but the actual glass blowing and brewery tour guides we awesome. Both tours were some of the best I've been on for that topic. Glad we went.

We really enjoyed our tour with Peter. He was a great tour guide and explained much about Prague. We first went to the glass crystal factory. Very interesting and they give you an opportunity to purchase some really cool stuff. Next we had a nice lunch at a restaurant close to the brewery. Then we went to the brewery which was very cool. we were able to try unfiltered and unpasteurized beer which was very good. We meet new people on our tour and connected with Peter to hear some interesting stories about Easter in Prague and life in Eastern Europe. Would highly recommend this tour. I think we returned around 2 or 3 so leaves you about half a day to explore Prague.

A good combination to see glass factory and brewery in one day. Our tour guide Peter was punctuated to pick us up in our hotel and start our journey of the day, both glass factory and brewery guides are very informative, we did some crystal products shopping and tasted a fresh beer in this tour. Lunch included this tour is good too.
