Our trip was excellent; just 3 of us and our guide. Having an electric assist bike was a plus and fun. Castle just amazing and fun to take the train back to Prague.

Best Tour we have ever done. So nice to get out of the main city and see the country side. Stopped in one of the small towns along the way and had a wonderful lunch. Our guide Marek was amazing. It’s a bit of a walk to the Castle at the end of the ride but you’ll still have fresh legs after the e-bike ride. It’s a pedal assist bike and is easy for anyone to use. I highly recommend this tour

This trip was recommended by friends who had done it previously, however, their trip was much different. First, of the 9 people in our group, the two of us were the only ones with e-bikes. That created a problem as we wanted to go faster or not keep waiting, but had to. We did not have any "village" stops as the tour said we would, only one stop as we left town to use the bathroom and then lunch. We got to the town of Karlstejn and "force marched" up the hill to the castle, not stopping in the town at all. At the castle, we got a brief history at the old gate and in the 50 x 50 walled courtyard, looked down into the cistern, took pictures off the wall, and it was recommended we not tour the castle inside as the brochure said we could on our own, there wasn't enough time. Total castle time was about 20 minutes then to the train to head back as a group where we had to run to catch the train only to get back to town 45 minutes early. Bike ride was good, tour organization not so much.
