    It was really nice to see all these beautiful pieces of cristal and also the demonstration of how they make it. really for kings, but also possible for simple people. I got a suvenier from there as well.

    My wife and I took a tour to Karlovy Vary with Karolina being our tour guide and she was fantastic about answering any questions asked and she handled Spanish and English questions with ease. This was a nice tour thru the Czech countryside passing through small towns and many fields of barley and hops used in brewing the great Czech beer. Karlovy Vary is a very charming town with lovely architecture, shops and restaurants.

    lovely day visit to a beautiful town spa... yesteryear architecture lends a charm not so easily found today..wonderful visit with an excellent guide Michaela and courteous and safe driver ... visit to Moser factory was interesting but disapponting in that it did not include the glass cutting part of the factory as in Waterford, Ireland

    We were recently in Prague, finishing up a 10 day river cruise. After sightseeing around the city for 2 days, we were interested in partaking the hot springs, and this was recommended from a friend of a friend. Let me cut to the chase. Our guide (Suzanne) was wonderful and informative, so she was the high point of the day. It is a full day event, leaving the hotel around 8:30am and we didn't get back until 6:30pm. You spend about 4 hours+ just driving to and from Karlovy Vary. The Moser factory "tour" was interesting only in terms of the intricacy and beauty of the blown glass, but the "tour" was simply a walk into one corner of the factory and watching for 10 minutes. Karlovy Vary is a picturesque village nested into the hillsides with many bubbling hot springs, each purporting to have some healing powers. Watching the multitude of people walking about, sucking on their special cups, sipping the local mineral water was baffling. Understanding the history of the town, from pre-WWII to its significance under the Nazi-ruled Third Reich and then under the Soviet Bloc and how it is now a go-to place of many Russians is interesting as well. I would say that there are many other sites to see in and around Prague without resorting to this trip. If you want to take in the hot springs, plan a trip to Budapest, because this isn't it.

    Ha sido un tour muy completo y la guía maravillosa, nos contó toda la historia en el minibus y allí nos enseño la Ciudad. La ciudad espectacular, preciosa y con un colorido impresionante. La visita a la fábrica con los niños fue un acierto y les encanto. Karolina un 10.

    La excursión a Karlovy Vary fue muy bien, según lo previsto. Puntualidad a la hora de venir a buscarnos al hotel y al dejarnos en él. Michaela, la guía, muy amable y simpática. Hablaba perfectamente en español y en inglés. En las dos horas de trayecto nos dio explicaciones tanto de Praga como de la ciudad de los balnearios que íbamos a visitar, amenizándonos así el trayecto. Por ser lunes de Pascua, no pudimos ver trabajar a los obreros en la fábrica Moser; pero sí visitar su tienda e instalaciones. Después degustamos algunas de las aguas termales y tuvimos tiempo libre para almolzar. Aunque debido a la demora en el servicio del restaurante que elegimos, apenas pudimos pasear un poco más por nuestra cuenta. Lo interesante en esta ciudad sería poder pasar unos días de "relax" en algún balneario y seguir algún tratamiento específico.

    We loved Karlovy Vary and the Moser Glass Factory, but our guide was awful. We had wished we took a bus or train on our own. We had a few Spanish speaking people so our guide needed to explain in two languages. I certainly don't mind that, but she started each sentence in English, and finished in Spanish. As a result, none of us knew what she was talking about. She didn't seem too knowledgeable because she didn't answer any questions we asked. We ended up leaving the walking tour of Karlovy Vary early, and meeting them later for the ride back to our hotel. We had a very nice time wandering around the town, and we had a great lunch on our own. We noticed that most people left the group too. A 1/2 hour before we got back to Prague, Suzanne had the driver drop her off. I have never heard of a tour guide leaving the tour early! Unfortunately, we don't feel the tour was worth the money due to the unprofessional guide.
