Know More about this tour

Meet your guide in central Prague and make your way to the main bus station. Then, board the bus for Kutná Hora, the Czech Republic’s ‘City of Silver’ — a 13th-century silver mining town in central Bohemia that competed with Prague for power and riches in the Middle Ages.
Admire the Bohemian countryside, arrive in Kutná Hora and head for your first stop, the Sedlec Ossuary. On the way, hear more about Kutná’s history and how the town grew after the establishment of the Sedlec Monastery, a sanctuary for Cistercian monks, in the 12th century.
Head inside the Sedlec Ossuary and gape at the macabre, bone-made interior. Inspect the chandelier and furnishings made entirely from human bones, and hear how the interior contains the skeletons of around 40,000 people. As you take in the bone creations, you’ll understand completely why the ossuary draws flocks of visitors.
Next, head for Kutná’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, a treasure chest of medieval architecture. Visit the magnificent Gothic Church of St Barbara and marvel at its echoing interior, replete with frescoes that show medieval miners. As you walk round, hear how the church was dedicated to St Barbara, the patron saint of miners, and was part of Kutná’s efforts to rival Prague.
After, delve further into the romantic streets and squares, passing gems such as the Italian Court — the former Royal Mint — and the fortified Hrádek palace.
Make a brief stop for lunch (own expense), and then check out more Kutná highlights, including the Knight’s Hall and richly carved Plague Column, before catching your return bus.
Your tour ends back in central Prague, when you say goodbye to your guide at the station.

  • was great day the tour guide had a great sense of humor

  • Lovely day with Ryan Hume who offered a lot of great fun facts. The ossuary is definitely the highlight of this trip but the church of St. Barbara was just as interesting.

  • Loved this trip. Worth the money paid. Travel guide was good and had a good sense of humour. Lunch was nice. Places taken were all of great interest.

  • Enjoyable tour with a very nice an knowledgeable guide. Good sense of history and humor.

  • Great trip with an entertaining guide Jisik? Big J.
    The plus side - Bone chapel amazing, good background information given before we went in and sufficient time to see it all.
    Kutna Hora - lovely little place, beautiful Church and surrounding buildings, again lots of interesting information given. In the afternoon we had a walking tour of the town to where we rejoined the coach.
    Our guide was friendly, knowledgeable and organised the whole day well - his English was excellent.
    On the downside, the group was too big 33, which resulted in endless head counts to ensure we were all still there. Lunch was arranged at a given restaurant at 2:30pm in order for the staff to cater for the large number which we felt was too late but if you opted out of this as we did, we only had 30 minutes to find somewhere, eat and get back to the restaurant where we had to wait another 20 mins for the rest of the group to finish. The menu was varied and reasonably priced, but we only wanted a beer and a baguette not a big lunch.
    The only other niggle was that at the start of the day we got to the meeting point by 10:00 as instructed but we only set off to meet the coach at 10:40 - a lot of time standing around on a busy pavement on a hot day.

  • Excellent tour led by an amazing young man, Jirka. His knowledge and love of his country is amazing. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip.

  • Really fun guide and what a site to see - really a sight to behold!

  • We picked up this tour outside the Cartier shop in the square and then walked to the river to the bus at 10.30. It was difficult to pick out our tour from the rest as everyone seemed to have red umbrellas or red clothing.
    Our tour guide was Brandon Duke, he seemed enthusiastic and friendly at the start. We went to see the Bone Chapel first he gave us a little bit of information about it and pointed out some points in the different displays.He didn't give us any idea how long we would be there and this made it difficult to wander around. We travelled with another small Spanish group who seemed more organised and they were back on the coach long before us and this was the same throughout the day.
    Then we travelled to see St Barbara's Church, which is an absolutely beautiful building. He made some derogatory remarks about religion and Barbara being fake. This seemed to be the main theme throughout the tour and I understand that the Czech Republic is 80 atheist but not all the visitors are. It his job to give the tour not be a comedian or let his own personal opinions cloud what could have a been a great tour.

    The Spanish tour guide seemed to give his group a lot more information I observed this while standing around waiting for something to happen.

    When we went into the church he explained some features of the stain glass windows. At the back to the Church there is a mural on the wall featuring a camel, an elephant, what looks to be circus tents and a man with blue skin, which one of our group suggested to be a genie. Brandon described the components of this mural as the blue man, the pervert camel and weird elephant. When some of the group asked questions about it he could not answer and I could see some members of the group getting fed up with the lack of information.

    There were other features of the Church which I would have liked to know about but I didn't ask Brandon as I didn't want to get a sarcastic or disrespectful response.

    We wandered over the bridge after this church and through the town. We had lunch at 2.30 pm at Dacicky he told us the back story which was interesting. We sat in the restaurant till about 4 pm. The group we were with were drinking quite a bit and Brandon joined in with this, which wasn't a problem but we didn't know our departure time or collection point so we didn't realise till after that we could have left to explore the town more which would have been nice.

    Overall I would suggest to anyone to avoid this tour. Brandon had no interest, he wasn't religious so it seemed he couldn't appreciate the buildings for what they were and what they have become. He lacked knowledge and interest and it was a really disappointing day. We were only there for 3 days so this felt like a total waste of time.

  • Nice day trip! Our guide was great. Learned so much about this town and its history. The bone church was definitely the highlight but equally impressive was St. Barbara. Just breathtaking. And the place we stopped for lunch was amazing and so affordable. All in all a great trip!

  • Great overall tour. Just the right amount of time to see the sights.
