Helena was a very responsive correspondent in the weeks leading up to my visit. We spent a full day (eleven hours) traveling from Brno to villages in the Trebic area where my ancestors once lived. I knew of two houses in one village where my family members had been born and raised, and Helena contacted the current owners ahead of time. One of them made a feast to welcome us for lunch, and her brother helped us contact the owner of the other house, who was similarly generous. We struck out on finding family in cemeteries (this is more complicated than either of us realized, I think), but it was an unforgettable day that answered many of my questions about family origins and gave me forever memories.

Helen has excellent knowledge of the local area: including Churches, castles, history, geography and the Cave and Abyss, as well as places to eat great local food. We had a wonderful time listening to her entertaining stories about the various sites. And she took us to a look out tower not listed on the agenda to overlook the entire countryside. The cave was beautiful with wonderous mineral formations. The abyss is truly fascinating cave in of former part of the cave. Boating through some portions was awesome. The castle is amazing with period furniture, tapestries, dinner settings, and more that make it appear the owners from 200 years ago just left the room. Helen also provided English language recordings of cave and castle guides.

Helen was a fantastic source of knowledge for our day in the Moravian wine country. From the moment she picked us up to the end of our day, she provided history, context, and anecdotes about the area and the wines. This was a private tour for me and my husband and she handled all of the logistics - picked us up and dropped us off at our Airbnb in Brno and modified the activities to match our interests as we asked. There was also a nice balance between touring, driving, and tasting. Dress comfortably for walking through the parks and grounds. In addition to all the planned activities, we got an extra bonus stop in Vrbice. She knew a winemaker there and thought it would make a nice visit. We arrived a little early but she struck up a conversation with a local who generously agreed to show up his private cave. (The wine caves are all hand-dug out of sandstone and are passed down through family.) He has a day job and makes wines as a hobby. He shared how some folks don't know what to do after work but he always knows where he is going. He doesn't seel any wine to the public - just makes it for family & friends. Given the quantity in his cellar, they must drink a lot. :-) He let us try his burcak (young, first crush wine) which he pulled out with his wine thief. Then, he opened a bottle of his private wine to share with us. We also got to sample grapes direct from the vines. We also visited the small Brcko cellar. We liked the Portugal wine but loved the Frankova - new varietal for us. Moldy ceilings, old wooden barrels and coins stuck into the stone ceilings for good luck all add to the charm of these caves. We visited Lednice, Valtice, and Mikulov over the course of the day. Lednice has a beautiful castle, garden and grounds and includes fake ruins and a minaret for good measure. Valtice was home to the wine salon - one of the coolest experiences in wine tasting. For a flat (inexpensive) fee, you can taste as many or as much as you want of the top 100 vetted wines in the region. Pace yourself! Helen gave us great tips on how best to maximize our time and wine-tasting abilities here. We ended the day in the castle and old town of Mikulov relaxing over hot tea and coffee before the drive home. Overall, a wonderful (& educational) day. Not to be missed!

We had a wonderful visit to Austerlitz. Helena was a fantastic guide, offering my husband (already very knowledgable of the battle) new and interesting insights, while giving me (a novice) a thorough description. In addition to the battlefield itself, she provided rich and wonderful details of the region around Brno. Thank you, Helena, for an outstanding visit!

It does not matter if you are the world's expert on Austerlitz or just a curious tourist, Helena will make your day on the battlefield interesting and a fun experience. In a very skilful way she adapts the tour to suit your requirements. Helena picked me up from my Hotel in Slavkov at 8.00am and then showed me around the battlefield in such detail. We went to places that l would never have found if l had tried to do this on my own. The conversation between us never stopped and we also discussed English and Czech issues and culture
