Tour Overview

A little over two weeks is the duration of this stimulating expedition in the Czech Republic and Slovakia and our time could not be better spent as we venture through the heart and soul of two of Eastern Europe's most rewarding destinations. Starting in the Czech capital, Prague, a city that Goethe once called the prettiest gem in the stone crown of the world, we are exposed to a wealth of architectural style, from Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque, to Rococo, Neoclassical, Empire and Art Nouveau. The castle and Old Town convey the long history and charming heritage of this, one of Europe's classic destinations and from here, we visit castles that date from the 13th century and Gothic fortresses en route to the world-famous spa town of Karlovy Vary. We see for ourselves why UNESCO decided to grant World Heritage status to the ancient centres of Cesky Krumlov, and marvel at one of the most exquisitely beautiful towns on the continent. Across the border in Slovakia, we set off from Bratislava and head towards the mountain range of the Low Tatras, finding on our way emerald-green glacial lakes and evidence of the country's former subservience to the Hungarian Empire. Pieniny National Park surely vies for title of most beautiful and serene landscape in Europe and we see Slovakia from all perspectives, from deep within the 'Cave of Freedom' in the Demanova Valley, to atop the summit of Mount Chopok. A special treat before we return home, we cross into Hungary to take a couple of days to explore its remarkable capital city, Budapest.

The castles and town squares were wonderful, the High Tatras was great, the tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague - all of the excursions were excellent. The local guides were all very good and informative about the locations and history. The ones in Bratislava and the High Tatras were particularly good. The horse carriage ride up to one of the castles was fabulous. The evening meals exceeded my expectations. Lots of variety, high standard of restaurants... Petr, our tour leader, was knowledgeable, intelligent, always interesting. Good tour - excellent itinerary, pleasant hotels in good locations, good food, sufficient free time - a quality product.
