    Lednice Palace and Grounds is a fabulous example of wealth the nobility had in Europe in the 19th century. The Lichtenstein family had huge landholdings in the area that they had gathered gradually over the centuries through conquering, marrying, and buying. It was their loyalty to the Habsburg dynasty that raised the Lichtensteins to great prominence in the Austria-Hungarian Empire.

Great tour

Interesting places to stop. Social and friendly guide who gave good (2 not too long) history lectures about the places. Highlight of my trip to Central Europe.

Per, Norway Jan. 14, 2020

A wonderful experience, new places, new friends!

We have had a wonderful trip from Budapest to Prague with an incredible girl. She has been tireless, funny and really competent. Her enthusiasm was engaging and she showed us places that otherwise we would never have visited. We travelled with our girl, 5 years old, and it was nice for her too. Happy to have chosen this way to travel from one city to another.
