Well Worth It

I really enjoyed the trip between the two capitals. Our guide did a great job of keeping things informative and fun. I’m happy I rearranged my trip itinerary so that I was able to take this tour. It’s a phenomenal way to see several other towns and cities that you otherwise would’ve missed.

    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.

An excellent way to see some of Czech, Slovakia and Hungary

Our guide was so great - nice, interesting, informative and able to answer any question she was asked, but didn't hold forth unnecessarily between stops. We had a nice small group (and I was lucky with my travel companions too) and the stops were well spaced, never too long in the minibus. Very glad I decided to do the trip and would recommend it to anyone who wants to see a bit of several countries but doesn't have much time to spare.

Fantastic way to travel from Prague to Budapest

This was an enjoyable and extensively informative experience. Our tour guide made the day particularly fun and productive with his enthusiasm and historical/cultural knowledge. He ensured that everyone's questions were amply answered, provided interesting tips and local insights and brought super energy to the group. I would highly recommend this tour bus!
