The tour itself was great and Sara is an amazing tour guide: Very kind and welcoming. However, getting to the meeting point was a nightmare. Originally I got an email telling me that I would be picked up at my hotel and that I would receive further details soon. One hour before the tour, I had received nothing so I called and I was told that I had to go a different location. I was given very vague and confusing instructions, so I had some issues finding the spot. Since I was running late, a very rude person called my phone and yelled at me because I was supposedly in the wrong place. They made me turn around only to realize that I was actually walking in the right direction at the beginning. I'm completely disappointed with the way that I was treated before the tour itself began.

What people are saying about Central Bohemian Region
Magnificent experience, we walked a lot, we saw so many things that without the card we probably would have discarded. Public transport is very comfortable, too bad they are not included in the discounts. Gorgeous city Prague.
Vladimir, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable, kind and informative. He took us to a quaint restaurant with delicious food. It was a perfect day!
Very cool place who needs more support to stay alive and renovate the old unique church
it was creepy in a good way. 2 hour ride but 3 hours of experience
If you are to be active touring, than you get your money's worth
