We had a wonderful experience with Alenka today. She went out of her way to make our trip wonderful. She is full of energy and has excellent knowledge of the city, its culture, and history. Would most certainly recommend this tour to anyone

Really loved the tour and the guide-Alenka!! Highly recommend her if you’re looking forward to book one. But it could have been better if it was a little longer and not just for half day during the peak season. But overall it was great!!

I highly recommend this tour our tour guide Bridgette was excellent always giving us so many real family stories plus the movie stories. I had a super great afternoon. So relaxing.

The Fortress Dinner was absolutely delicious! The Mozart concert was fantastic! This is a MUST when in the area.
