Know More about this tour

The town's fairytale red-roofed castle is surrounded by landscaped gardens, and features grand courtyards, halls and furnishings. The castle's development over the 14th to 19th centuries has been well preserved, both in layout and architectural detail. The mighty castle complex stands on a rock promontory sculpted by the Vltava River, dominating the attractive medieval town below.

Together with the magnificent Church of St. Vitus, the castle is a unique feature of the entire region. The town of Cesky Krumlov is situated in a valley surrounded by the Blansko Forest to the north and the undulating foothills of Sumava to the south and west.

    There is no way I can give this tour a good review even though I have enjoyed many good tours through Viator. The bus was not equipped for a trip this far out of Prague -- no bathroom facilities and only one break on the way out (3 hrs) and none on the way back. The tour guide rushed us through the tour and abandoned us at the first lunch stop only to reappear long enough to hand us over to the local guide at the castle (he was late) and then to rush us back to the bus with only 5 minutes to take photos. We could have accomplished this tour ourselves by taking a bus to Cesky Krumlow and buying a local guide ticket to the castle.

    I want to say that this town is nothing more than a bunch of small souvenir shops and restaurants sprinkled with a few hotels and a church. The castle is ok nicer outside than inside. It was not said that to get to the town it is a pretty significant walk that if you are not somewhat fit it’s not easy. The majority of stores take cash only didn’t know that either. Not sure if it was worth a six hour round trip to see. It was ok not spectacular.

    This was a great little town and with the full day excursion in the discription, you would think that it will be covered a ton. Yet, the ride took over 2.5 hours in the small, outdated, squeaky mini van. We only had the guide with us for around 40 min in town itself, as he was walking along and pointing to the different buildings. Not that many details and interesting facts that you would think it will have. He dropped us off at the suggested restaurant (he said to us that it was very good and with the great prices), but do not fall for that trick. As I saw him walking away from the restaurant himself after we were sited, I thought that something was wrong. Very overpriced, nothing special. Find better place for your own taste. The castle tour was a joke: we saw a couple of rooms only with the two different eras. The castle tour guy had a very strong accent and it was hard to understand what he was trying to say. Overall, this town has great potential for the tourists to explore, but not with this company. Look if someone else is offering and try them instead.

    A very beautiful town outside of Prague, the castle was beautiful too with lots of Renaissance painting and gigantic ballroom.

    Excellent! Cesky Krumlov is a lovely lovely city! We had good enough time to spend in the city. Had some amazing crepes there!
    It is a beautiful city - all in all a great tour

    a step back in time ,well worth the drive from Prague,so much to see and do for a little town, the history of this place is amazing

    Cesky Krumlov is a great town, definitely worth visiting, but I would not recommend this tour. It takes 2.5-3 hours to get to Cesky Krumlov and unfortunatelly our bus was stinky. We have spent about 4 hours in Cesky Krumlov, which included 1 hour tour. We didn't enjoy the tour by George, he was walking very fast, so half of the group missed part of the explanations, but made sure everybody heard him promoting the restaurant and a jewelry shop. Anyway, free time was very nice, just not enough to enjoy the town as we had to find a place for lunch first.
    I guess that it's better to take a taxi there and back or stay overnight to really see Cesky Krumlov.

    This tour did not meet our expectations at all:
    The description was not accurate, it did not mention the climb of high inclined which was not convenient for seniors and heart patients, this is totally irresponsible. The trip was for 3 hrs each way in a small very uncomfortable bus .
    The description should be re written with clear warnings

    The guide enriched the experience with interesting stories ; also , during the bus travel , shared a lot about the country history which made it a wonderful experience .

    Let me start with the positive: Cesky Krumlov is a surely 'not to be missed' spot in Czech Republic. For that alone, this trip was worth it. The Guide through the castle was amazing. He was knowledgable and animated. That was one of the highlights of the tour.
    the negative: Our Trip Guide and Driver left a lot to be desired. The guide was knowledgable but spoke in such a low monotonous voice, it was hard to stay interested through the almost 3 hours trip there. And on the way back not a single word was spoken.
    Another nice thing was that the driver was nice enough to let us off on a side road instead of having to go back into the town and walk all the distant back home,

    overall I would say this was a 5 star location with a 3 star guide.
