Czech Republic Tours

Czech Republic Tours

It's hard to imagine the Czech Republic as anything but a glamorous country in the heart of Europe. Before the fall of communism in 1989, Czechoslovakia (as it was known then) was the bridge between East and West. Fitting as the region has historically been a crossroads of civilizations for centuries.

During the middle ages, Czech Republic was part of the Kingdom of Bohemia which was connected to the Holy Roman Empire. With the amount of foes and battles faced, much of Bohemia developed fortresses and castles to protect itself.

On Czech Republic tours, there are many castles to admire. From the baroque Prague Castle which looms over the magnificent city's skyline, to the gothic fortress of Karlstejn...   Read More

Name:
Martin Charlton

EDUCATION:
Bachelor's Degree in Geography; further studies in Archaeology & Anthropology. Life's real education happens outside the classroom.

LANGUAGE:
English and some French & Spanish.

TOURS LED:
Having led tours for Adventures Abroad for almost 25 years, there are few corners of the globe where Martin’s left a stone unturned: everywhere from North Korea to Nauru, Saudi Arabia to Sudan, Guinea-Bissau to French Guiana. With over 200 tours through over 125 countries under his belt, it might be faster to list the regions where he hasn’t led a tour.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
"My love of travel and infectious enthusiasm for different cultures has taken me to over 155 countries. The further off the beaten path, the better. For a favourite place: perhaps South Georgia Island, the Canadian Arctic, or Cesky Krumlov in the Czech Republic. World's best city = Istanbul!"

ABOUT:
"Don't pack anything that you would be upset to lose, that needs to be ironed, or is encased in glass." - words to live by.

Name:
Jonathan Hodgson

EDUCATION:
BA in Psychology at McGill University; MBA at the University of British Columbia; self-educated passion for history and culture.

LANGUAGE:
English; conversational French; improving Spanish and Russian. And a decent Scottish accent.

TOURS LED:
I have led tours in over 100 countries over the last 14 years of working for Adventures Abroad on all of the continents except for Antarctica.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Where to begin? Each place has something that makes it a special destination. A few that spring to mind: Kaieteur Falls in Guyana; the snow-covered mountains of Ladakh, India; sipping tea in a chaikhana of the old town of Bukhara, Uzbekistan; and watching the changing colours of Uluru (Ayers Rock) at sunset.

ABOUT:
Jonathan has lived much of his life dedicated to the idea that he would rather have a wealth of experiences than a wealth of riches. Having taken up a nomadic lifestyle shortly after finishing his undergraduate degree, he has been on the move on and off over the last 25+ years. The wanderlust has taken him to basing himself in places such as Scotland, Australia and Uzbekistan, and to visiting many more locations around our planet. Now (sort of) settled in Vancouver with his wonderful (and patient) family, he still loves the idea of having the world as his office and always enjoys trying to capture the essence of the locations he travels and tours in with his photography.

Name:
Victor Romagnoli

EDUCATION:
HBA English BA History

LANGUAGE:
Being able to speak several languages has made travelling an enriching experience; the conversations one can so easily slip into with locals - who come from all walks of life - adds greatly to my feel for a place.

TOURS LED:
Over a span of almost 30 years, I have lead tours virtually all over the globe.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Some of my favourite tours just come into being suddenly as a result of a request; someone will ask me to put together an itinerary that will include the highlights of several countries and the next thing you know we have, for example, a tour to Uruguay, Paraguay & Bolivia, or Lesotho, Namibia & Botswana. Sometimes I will be asked to arrange a detailed itinerary to just one region within a country - like a close up look at Sicily or Crete or the Basque Country or Newfoundland. Without the keen curiosity that so many of you travellers have, none of these "spontaneous" tours would come into being. But they do.

ABOUT:
I love the excitement of getting up each morning on a tour and not knowing exactly how a day will unfold. It keeps me on my toes so to speak, and adds a breath of excitement to each day on tour. With almost 30 years of tour leading under my belt, I thank all of you for being a part of this exciting journey.

Name:
Chris Tripodi

EDUCATION:
University for Mathematics. College for Music. But the greatest education I've received has come from Earth while travelling. "Don’t tell me how educated you are, tell me how much you have travelled."

LANGUAGE:
I can ask 'Where is the toilet?' in 57 languages.

COUNTRIES VISITED:
80%. I need a new passport every 20 months.

TOURS LED:
West Africa to South Africa, El Salvador to Argentina, Samoa to Seychelles, Portugal to Romania, Jordan to Japan.

FAVOURITE DESTINATION:
Departures hall.

ABOUT:
I travel because it is the most interesting thing I can think of doing between meals. The magic and the challenge of this job is seeing the world itself as the tour with several smaller journeys along the way. I enjoy that time at the end of one trip, before the start of a new one, where the sadness of leaving one place mixes with the excitement of approaching another.

It's hard to imagine the Czech Republic as anything but a glamorous country in the heart of Europe. Before the fall of communism in 1989, Czechoslovakia (as it was known then) was the bridge between East and West. Fitting as the region has historically been a crossroads of civilizations for centuries.

During the middle ages, Czech Republic was part of the Kingdom of Bohemia which was connected to the Holy Roman Empire. With the amount of foes and battles faced, much of Bohemia developed fortresses and castles to protect itself.

On Czech Republic tours, there are many castles to admire. From the baroque Prague Castle which looms over the magnificent city's skyline, to the gothic fortress of Karlstejn Castle, and lastly to the mighty Renaissance castle of Cesky Krumlov.

Over the centuries, many different cultures came to inhabit the area. The Jewish populations before Nazi Germany were incredibly significant in numbers, as shown by the Klaus Synagogue and the Old Jewish Cemetery in Prague. The cemetery is second oldest in Europe, established in the 15th century with 12,000 tombstones jammed together marking burials from 1439 to 1787.

Folklore from traditional cultures continue to thrive today, with puppet and marionette festivals still drawing an audience.

Throughout its prominence in the 13th to 20th centuries, the royal family invited artists and talented architects from Germany, France and Italy to create architectural masterpieces in Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Rococo, Neoclassical, Empire and Art Nouveau styles.

The splendor of the Czech Republic's charm is owing to the fact that the country was virtually untouched by war. Indeed occupied by Nazi Germany and liberated by the Soviets, the two armies caused little damage on the country's buildings.

Masterpieces such as the 15th century astronomical clock in Prague, the spa town Marianske Lazne, the renaissance chateau of Konopiste or the artistic 14th century Charles Bridge all have the ability to transport you back in time. Czech Republic tours provide an understanding of the deep history connected to these wonderfully preserved sites.

It is said that during the bleak Cold War times, the fringes of Czech Republic were cleared of people to make communist buffer zones and the government preferred the people to spend more time in the pub rather than the forests. Perhaps this is the reason Czech has become a region renowned for its beer making.

Geographically speaking, Czech Republic is dominated by low rolling mountains and beautiful temperate forests. A vast network of trails connects picturesque villages with thick forests ranging from oaks and beech to spruce and pines. Landlocked, the Czech Republic is bordered by Germany to the west, Austria to the south, Slovakia to the east and Poland to the northeast.

For the most part, people on Czech Republic tours come to enjoy an old world charm within a country that oozes with elegance. With cities that feel like open air museums it is hard to not gaze longingly at the spire filled skyline of Prague or any villages cobblestone streets into picture perfect plazas. As one of finest destinations in Europe, come see how great this tiny country can be.
