Budapest to Vienna to Prague to Munich. A great way to travel.

My wife and I travelled from Australia for a river cruise from Amsterdam to Budapest and then one week travel in Central Europe. After the river cruise, we chose Sidetriptours to take just the two of us, between cities with along-the-route tours of interest, from Budapest (we stayed 2 nights) then to Vienna (we stayed 3 nights) then to Prague (we stayed 3 nights) then to Munich Airport. By email with Peter, we arranged all our trips and found the communication and arrangements very easy. Martina drove us from Budapest with 4 stops, in a very comfortable Renault minivan. Zuzana and Vera drove us from Vienna with 4 stops, also in a very comfortable minivan. Sharka drove us from Prague in a Skoda car with 3 stops. This was an affordable and much more comfortable way to travel than train or bus or airplane, being collected directly from the ship or our hotel and delivered to the next hotel. All 4 of these ladies were excellent drivers and we felt very safe on each journey. Of course there was not a lot of time at each stop but our hosts were also very good at showing us around the stops with a short tour and talk about each of the historic attractions and their towns. We had wonderful conversations about our different cultures and learnt a lot about the people and countries that we drove through. Highly recommend Sidetriptours.

    Lednice Palace

    What we'll do
    We will have a chance to walk around the beautiful and famous gardens surrounding the Palace during the tour. Lednice Palace and Gardens , the way we see them today, are designed in the 19th century for entertaining in the summer season. They palace is probably the best example of English Gothic style in Continental Europe. The Palace and Grounds, about 200h, are under UNESCO World Heritage protection due their unique architectural landscape.

    About Lednice
    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.

  • Stop 2: Mikulov Wine Region

    We enjoy the views of Mikulov Wine Region and visit a local Moravian winery (optional).

    Mikulov Wine Region

    What we'll do
    During the tour we have an option to visit one of Mikulov Wine Regions vineyards to see the vines and, most importantly, sample some of the wine. This is available for an extra fee during the tour and will be decided on the day if the group is interested.

    About Mikulov Wine Region
    Mikulov Wine Region in South Moravia is famous for its vineyards. If you think Czech Republic associates only with beer then think again! Wine from this country and especially from Moravia is world famous. The tradition of growing grapes here dates back to Roman period in the third century. Yet Mikulov region grew famous for wine in medieval times. And despite the many wars that have raged in Europe in this area the vineyards have never died out. The region’s lime-rich soil and favorable climate is best for different types of white wine grapes. The tradition of growing these grapes is carried by family owned little vineyards.

  • Stop 3: Znojmo

    We take a walk through the crooked lanes and hidden courtyards of the picturesque town Znojmo.

    Read more


    What we'll do
    Walking the narrow streets and crooked back alleys in search of stunning views from the top of the hill is great fun. You will see the beautiful
    St Nicholas Church and the Town Hall , not to mention the breathtaking views over the river. Our stop in Znojmo is also just in time for a lunch break (not included) to refresh ourselves. This city is well off the beaten path in the Czech Republic and takes you away from the usual touristy sights.

    About Znojmo
    Znojmo, with population around 33 000 people is the second largest city in South Moravia after Brno. Znojmo gains city rights in 13th century, the settlement grew around an earlier fortress. The city is located on a strategic hill by the Thaya River and this gives Znojmo a unique hilly street layout.

  • Stop 4: Telč

    In the afternoon we enjoy a stroll in the fairytale-like Renaissance Old Town of Telč before heading off to Prague.

    What we'll do
    We take a look at one of the most romantic Old Towns in Europe. Legend goes that the competitive nature of the people in Telč created this stunning town in Czech Republic. The citizens competed over who could build the prettiest house to the Town Hall Square . Today we can enjoy the outcome - the multicoloured houses with high gables in Renaissance style lining the square. This beautiful Old Town is under UNESCO World Heritage protection.

    About Telč

    Telč is a small town in Czech Republic with a population of about 5000 people. The city is first mentioned in the 14th century. The wealth came from trade and the city was flourishing in the 17th century. This is the period when most of the city’s main square’s buildings date from - the famous colourful fairytale-like Renaissance houses.

My family had a blast!

Stefan was awesome. He was a great driver, very informative, and all around a great guide. My family and I enjoyed all the sights and made it to Prague safely. I would definitely recommend this trip anyone and would consider side trips again for other trips.

Vienna - Prague Sidetrip

My wife and I booked a private tour with Sidetrips to drive us from Vienna to Prague. Our driver Filip met us at our hotel and was our guide for the day. He was friendly and polite. The car that was provide was a bit uncomfortable inside but manageable.. The first three stops, the castle, wine tasting and the town were good.. We then spent 2 hours driving to get to the bone church that was closed and then continue to Prague for another 1..5 hour drive so it was a long day in the car. Overall I would recommend the company.

Wonderful sightseeing transfer

We thoroughly enjoyed our private transfer from Vienna to Prague with Martina. She was prompt to pick us up at our hotel, the van was clean and spacious. She was very knowledgeable and showed us 4 sights/towns along the way. It started snowing towards the end of the drive, the roads were a bit slick, but Martina handled this so well and we felt very safe. This is the best way to see more sights as you travel between these two cities. Highly recommend!
