Private tour guide needed in Olomouc area


My wife and I will be staying a short while in Olomouc. We are looking for a tour guide/company that can take us on a "genealogy tour" - maybe a day trip nothing more. My mother's family is from Moravia and I am interested in seeing and learning more about a couple of villages about an hour outside Olomouc. However, I do not speak Czech and so I am not entirely comfortable exploring the countryside for the first time alone. If you know of a company that would be able to provide this type of service or an individual that is from the area and is fluent in both Czech and English, please let me know.

My name is Tom Zahn. I am the owner of the firm P.A.T.H. FINDERS Intl. mentioned in this thread. I am writing to clarify that, although we are based in Prague, we do cooperate with guides in the area of Olomouc. Our guides are familiar with the unique needs of family history travel, locating specific sources, and communicating in English, as well as their native Czech. If need be, they can also provide transportation.

Our ability to assist you with your family history research in Moravia would depend on the date of you travel, and the information you presently have about your ancestors.
