This comfortable day trip in private car/minibus tour includes the visit of the Castle of Hluboka nad Vltavou, the city of Ceske Budejovice and the visit of the Budvar brewery with beer tasting. The tour is 6-7 hours long with a comfortable rhythm of walking, free time and bus ride.
I believe that travelling makes each person richer, but only if you learn to feel the places you have been to. Walking through cities without knowing the story behind can still be wonderful, but will you remember? Do, learn, feel, taste, savour and all your destinations will become part of you, and remembering where pictures were taken will not need any GPS coordinates.
The tour starts at 9am at the Municipal Theater in Cesky Krumlov. English speaking private guide is with you all day. First we drive to Hluboka nad Vltavou where we have a15 minutes long walk up to the castle. You are free to chose between the winter tour of the castle rooms or a walk around the castle in the gardens with our guides' explanations.
