Overall an amazing experience made even better by fun and experienced guides. Very impressed with the variety of scenery and particularly enjoyed the flexibility of deciding on the length of the day as we went along as they all followed the same route.

Slowing down and actually seeing the countryside is the best way to explore. The history and architecture were around every curve and winding road. The castles and cathedrals are breathtaking. The meandering Danube is spellbinding. We loved the trip.

I really enjoyed the tour of Cesky Krumlov, the town guide was very knowledgeable, and the visit to the Nikolaihof winery. Lots of cool history in those places and it’s good to get to know more about them when one is in the area. It’s what makes tours of these regions complete.
