  • Guide was great. He was well prepared with gloves, hats,walking sticks and snow spikes for those that needed assistance. Could have spoke louder in the bus. He was hard to hear in the back on bumpy roads. He was spectacular on the hikes. He gave us so much information about the rock formations and the castle ruins at the Bastille bridge. We did two hikes as it was January. The scenery was beautiful at both locations. We stopped at a quaint restaurant for lunch. It was a wonderful way 1/2 way through the day to get to know the group. The guide was fantastic!

  • Great trip. Get to spend some time in the country side with some great views!

  • This tour was amazing! Our guide was friendly and super knowledgeable. The places we visited were breathtaking. I highly recommend this tour!

  • It was a rainy day, cold and windy but we had one of the BEST experiences of our life.
    Elbe Canyon is magnificent- be prepared for a 2 hours walk and hike but it worth every single minute.
    Then Bastei Bridge- we visited all under rain but it was fantastic. Something I may say you can't miss.

  • A wonderful tour full of amazing sites and the best of nature. A little strenuous but worth it. The guide was excellent. We are old people and it was not easy for us. But he was very considerate and cause us to enjoy the tour in spite of the hardship. A great guy.

  • Worth the cost of this event!

  • Even though it rained the whole day this was still a very enjoyable experience. Vladka was a great guide and she even gave her rain poncho to one of the guests. She went above and beyond!

  • the guide was great and the view beautiful, but the restaurant was terrible. it looked like a tourist-trap, because the guide and us ordered the same dish, that said dumplings, and she got dumplings and we got simple bread.

  • This tour was amazing? Our guide Mira was punctual, knowledgeable and very well spoken. He made the tour interesting and very comfortable.
    Food was delicious and the scenery was breathtaking.
    I would highly recommend.
