    We went to this town in a small bus for a day trip, it's well worth it. We had enough free time to walk around the town on our own and took many beautiful pictures. We went inside of the castle too with a local tour guide, that took 1 hour. Great excursion from Prague.

    Our trip with Vladimir to Cesky Krumlov was magical with all we saw while we were there. We could not have asked for a better tour guide and trip because Vladimir was so knowledgable. I highly recommend this event.

    Michal is simply superb at what he does. My friend and I enjoyed Michal’s company and appreciated his capacities to educate and guide us so much that we added two more trips with Michal.

    Michal drove us from Prague to Cezky Krumlov along the way giving us so much information to ground us in our visit not only to CK but also to the Czech Republic. Michal is knowledgeable, no doubt, but he is also personable, accommodating, and wonderful to spend time with.

    Michal has thought of everything for this trip—bathroom stops, wonderful lunch, history of the town and castle. We could not have been happier with this tour and with Michal. The personal touches are what make such a trip extraordinary. Highly recommend!!

    This was such a nice trip in a small group. Everything was organized well, driver was very nice and our guide brought history to life. Cesky Krumlov is like a fairytale medieval town. Castle is one the largest in Czech republic full od legends. We would miss so much of stories if going on our own. Highly recommending this tour if you have couple of days in Linz.

    Beautiful picturesque town with many photo ops. Restaurants were ok, nothing to write home about and some nice souvenir shopping places. The scenery may have been compromised as it was Nov and not a lot of colour in terms of grass and flowers but still a must if you are nearby.

    Highly recommended if you want to visit other cities in Czech Republic and not only Prague.
    The service is excellent and really focused on tourist requirements.

    Our tour guide was Anna. She was great. She did have a pretty heavy accent, so we had to listen very carefully.

    They picked us up at our hotel near Mala Strana and drove us over to Wenceslas Square. We then transferred to a large van (mid-sized bus), which held ~20 people. It was comfortable. It took us a good 3+ hours to get to Cesky Krumlov, primarily due to back traffic. Anna spoke nearly the entire way and then lead us around the city for ~20 minutes, then gave us ~2 hours of free time. We met at the town center at ~3:15pm and Anna took us to the Castle for a tour. We then caught the bus back at 5:30pm and got back at ~8:00pm.

    We paid $100 per person but, if I had to do it again, I would have rather just caught a bus from Prague's main station on gone on our own for ~$18 per person round trip. But we're pretty self-sufficent and can read history on our phones. But if you like tour guides, this is a good one.

    Cesky Krumlov is a lovely town to visit however it situated about 3 hours drive from Prague so be prepared. Our tour was full - no spare seats in our minibus.Firstly the ticket kiosk not a pleasant experience- need to work on their people skills!! The guide - he didn't introduce himself probably do not want us to remember his name, he was a poor communicator and gave bare minimal commentary. Seemed more interested in how many he could book at his restaurant for lunch (lunch not included in tour) obviously some form of commission for him. The walking tour was just a quick walk with a couple of comments, very basis. So what you get is transportation, the castle tour (local castle guide) and free time in Cesky Krumlov. We did not see much of our Martins guide.The castle tour was very good and lovely local guide. We enjoyed visiting Cesky Krumlov, it is very picturesque.

    Sarka from Personal Prague Guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and so considerate of our whole group from the US. We were a family of 6 traveling with our 88 year old mother and Sarka made sure the trip was tailored to our needs. We have Czech ancestors and she made it possible to go to the town were my husbands grandmother was born and we had a ceremony of gratitude for our ancestors. We loved the beautiful town of Cesky Krumlov but highly recommend using Personal Prague Guide for to experience this magical place!

    After buying the ticket on the Internet site of an intermediary Company, Gray Line Tour Prague did not contact me to confirm the hotel pickup and waited for me to contact them the evening before the tour to inform me that the tour was going to be cancelled due to lack of the minimum number of participants
    They forced me to wake up early on the day of the tour and forced me to call them again 30 minutes before the official start time of the tour just to get confirmation of the tour cancellation and only at this time they agreed to refund me the tour ticket, despite my request the day before. NEVER AGAIN

    We loved our day trip to Cesky Krumlov!

    Our group of 4 booked our trip with Alligator Tours. Every aspect of the trip was fantasic. Balazs kept us up to date on the number of travelers and the booking details before we left Vienna. We were picked up punctually and lucky to be the only passengers in the clean and comfortable van. We stopped in the quaint town of Weitra for a walk through the town and up to the castle for a view of the area. The journey didn't seem very long because there was so much nice scenery to look at and Balazs told us facts about the area we were driving through. Once in Cesky Krumlov we met our next guide, Vladmira (cool name!) who gave us an excellent tour of the majestic city from a local's perspective. She knows so much about the history and architecture of the castle, gardens and city, and pointed out things to do and places to eat. After the tour, two hours of free time was just the right amount of time to look around all the shops and walk along the river before heading back to meet Balazs for the ride home.

    It was an unforgettable day and I would highly recommend the trip!

    We stopped in Prague for four days before continuing onto Budapest for a river cruise. I worked with Lucy from Lucy Tours to secure three separate days of tours both inside and outside of Prague. She could not have been more helpful, friendly or professional. I’ve already left a review for our full day tour in Prague (which was amazing…check out my review) and the next day we had a full day Cesky Krumlov Private tour from prague.

    Our driver/guide was Roman, who was stellar and exactly on time (even though we were slightly late given a failure in our alarm clock!). He couldn’t be more understanding! And it was brilliant, professional, fun, entertaining and a wonderfully safe driver.

    Our tour was brilliant and the history that Roman provided was exceptional and really created a beautiful picture of the sights we were seeing.

    When we go back to Prague, Lucy Tours will be the first person I call. Simply, there is no better tour company in the Czech Republic! Ask for Roman!!

    We went for a day trip to Cesky Krumlov, a medieval town a few hours outside prague. The castle and the views from various parts is truly breathtaking.There is lots of walking to be done ,both uphill and downhill. Many sure you wear good walking shoes.

    Eszter was kind enough to add a time to accomodate an evening tour for us. We were able to see and hear about the history of the Castle before strolling through the streets and experiencing the charm and ambiance as the sun went down. We arrived at the perfect overlook just minutes before the exterior lighting on the Castle turned on for the evening. She gave us fantastic meal recommendations and a special gift to remember Chesky Krumlov. We enjoyed and recommend her tour.
