Vienna to Prague Adventure

Our trip was fantastic from pick up to drop off. Our guide was very professional & knowledgeable. The stops we made were beautiful even when it rained! Jakub had umbrellas for us, so that was helpful. We were introduced to some very good Local dry red wines on one of our stops. I would highly recommend Sidetips. This was so much more enjoyable than riding on a bus or train. We saw towns we never would have thought of seeing on our own. Thank you! Jakub’s the Best.

    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.

    Znojmo

    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.

    Telč

    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.

Good guide. Good sight. Good company.

Our journey was from Vienna to Prague. The meetup point at Vienna is right by Mozart cafe, which is near the city center, and very convenient. Jakub was our tour guide, he was very professional and had a very likable personality. He kept the group engaged and was informative to the best of his knowledge. The group was very punctual, and we were able to make it to all of the destinations on time, which was key. This was a good deal for a one-way journey. Highly recommended.

Personal and adventuresome

Our tour guide was Zuzana! She was great. She got us to our final destination safely. But.... not only that ..... she went over and beyond her her tour guide duty. She took us to the designated cities. One of them we stopped and had lunch. And then the adventure began. We were heading to our last stop, just leaving the city when my son said he forgot his retainers at the restaurant. So she turned around and we went back to the restaurant. I stayed in the van with my other son while she helped my son look for the retainers. They went dumpster diving for an hour! Couldn’t find it. They got in the van and he found it sitting in the van! 🤬🤯 Zuzana was calm and joked about but I am sure she was annoyed. Thank you for all your help. Then we forgot the gloves. She happened to drop it off at our hotel a few days later. Thank you thank you. The vehicle was clean, comfortable and the locations we visited we wouldn’t have thought to go to. Thank you for a smooth (sort of) trip. The booking was easy, confirmation instant. Pick up was right on time. I would book with them again if we were in that part of the world again. Yes we could have rented a car. But this was so nice and everyone had a good time.
