Depart Prague and admire picturesque South Bohemia as you travel to the town of Český Krumlov.

On route, listen to tales about this UNESCO-protected gem on the River Vltava. Often called a miniature Prague, this medieval town boasts well-preserved Gothic, Baroque and Renaissance buildings nestled around a 13th-century castle.

Admire the castle gardens and don’t miss the 18th-century castle theater, a unique example of a completely preserved Baroque theater.

Not very enjoyable
, May 2019
I would give this 3 out of 5 as the local guide that we got is not very accommodating and just talk and talk . And I got the impression that he thinks asians don't really speak English so it feels a bit racist to me. Its just too bad we don't have many option from prague to go to cesky if we don't follow a local tour. The local guide in castle that comes together with the castle ticket is more interactive n interesting compared to the tour guide.
A must if you are visiting Prague
, Oct 2018
The drive was beautiful and scenic. 2.5 hours may seem like a lot to some but it was far from boring, thanks to the scenic beauty and the jovial guide who gave us snippets of information about places we crossed through the trip. The timing of the guided walk in the town and the castle tour was perfect, just enough to absorb it all and not feel rushed. Thoroughly recommended trip.
Charming town and beautiful castle

Town and castle were like stepping back in time. Very traditional feel and had time to wonder around town before touring inside of castle.

, Jul 2018
The town of Cesky Krumlov was magnificent. The tour I cannot say so. It was a 2 hour journey and the first stop in the non air-conditioned coach was a small petrol station with very small restroom, with the ladies only toilet broken. We arrived at location with a hard to understand tour guide, that didn't seem to really want to be in this job. The tour bus was so hot, that it was a major problem to get the tour guide to even ask the driver to try to do something about it and then after 15 minutes said it was broken. Passengers asked a few questions about Cesky Krumlov etc on the return trip and were bluntly told that she had already told us about that. The tour company had 2 pick up points . We were picked up second pick up point and bus was full. On return everyone was dropped off at their pick up point. Myself and my wife were waiting for bus to take off, when the tour guide came on and asked us Why are you still on board We stated we are drop off point number 2. Sorry we are not going there, you get off here The she walked off. We tried to converse with bus drive, who did not speak English, he was very helpful and gave us the directions to walk back to our pick up point. Overall they need to lift their game. Air conditioned bus would help, English speaking passionate tour guide and pick up drop off where they state.

This was our favorite tour we took on our 10 day trip. Cesky Krumlov is simply lovely and quaint. It's a very nice day to explore the town, enjoy a nice Czech lunch, shop a little, climb the tower and extensively tour the castle. Our tour guide was great and we had a simply wonderful day. Highly recommended.

I would not recommend this trip unless the castle is open. We attended in March and did not think it worth the long drive just to view the outside of the castle gardens were closed also and the small town.

, Oct 2017
This was a horrible tour that I would suggest you stay away from. Our pick up was a ways from our hotel but we got there with plenty of time. Turns out that the next pick up place was a block from our hotel. Viator knew where we were staying but inconvenienced us anyway. All the way to the castle the tour guide had to translate everything she said into another language for one person, most annoying. We found out later there was a second bus that same day, same time, that contained people who spoke that language. Might have been better if that person went on the other bus. So things happen, and if this was all we could have overlooked it. But this tour took all day and there was a lot of waiting around instead of touring. The absolute worst part of this tour was that after waiting for the second bus for a while we went on a group tour of the castle that had at least 75 people! You could not see anything, or hear anything, because of the huge number of people. It was a waste of money. We will have to try and go back someday to try and see what was inside the castle. We have taken many tours with Viator and been happy so we were very disappointed about their mismanagement of this tour. A total waste of one of our days in Prague. Shame on Viator! So disappointed to have missed Cesky Krumlov Castle. DO NOT TAKE THIS TOUR!!!!

What an amazing day trip!! The town was absolutely picturesque. The tour guide Micheala was also very friendly and knowledgeable. It was nice to be able to explore the town on our own.My husband and I would definitely recommend this trip!

Loved it! The guide was excellent, the countryside was beautiful all the fall colors helped a lot and the castle was magnificent. And, the best part is there were not so many tourist that you felt crowded or packed in like at so many others places. It was a LONG bicycle ride so it's not for those that aren't used to long distances.

, Jun 2017
It turned out to be about an 11 hour round trip from Warsaw, but well worth it. Our tour guide, Sarah, was friendly and very knowledgeable in this areas history. We were @ 16 passengers in a newer Mercedes mini-bus, so the long ride was comfortable. There aren't words to describe the beauty of this area, it's was like a fairy tale castle come alive. The only bad thing was that it was packed with tourists! This is one of those areas that if you have the time, spending a night there would be ideal. It must be divine once a lot of the tourists leave.

Great way to kick off the new year. Properly-paced and enough leisure time to wander around...the place isn't that large to begin with. For someone that absolutely has to get inside the castle, probably best not to take this tour during the winter months.

First part of tour is a bus ride where 'on the left side is blah blah.' By the time you are looking at the left side,' the guide says 'on the right side is blah blah.' Not much time for photos during walking part of tour. Guide was great.

Excellent tour, the medieval town was recommended to me, so glad I took them up on going. A day away from the big city. Lots of history, Castle was very interesting.

Deborah K

A very charming little town, perhaps best visited during non winter months as quite a lot of sights were closed during my visit in February. While he was a very sweet older gentleman, there was a bit of a language barrier with the guide who was unable to effectively communicate the history of the town and its highlights in lieu of a limited English vocabulary - he tended to describe everything as 'interesting'. That said the two way transport - a Mercedes van - was probably worth the cost of the tour alone.

Quickly shown the castle courtyards. Guide spoke when group not all there. Delicious lunch included since the castle was closed in winter. In Prague, we were dropped off at a different spot and guide was not very helpful showing how to get back to pick up spot. Unimpressed with that since no notice.

, Sep 2016
La visite du château est très décevante et la guide parlait dans un anglais difficile à comprendre. Nous avons pris ce tour pour éviter de gérer le transport, ce qui était bien, mais pour le reste nous savons maintenant que les visites guidées ne répondent pas à nos attentes.
