Friendly: Yes.
Wheelchair with bigger wheels friendly, BUT please note that all the streets are cobblestoned and the ride on the chair may be quite bumpy.

Let's travel back to 16th Century in a full day driving private tour to this fairy tale cobblestoned town


When our country opened its borders after the end of communist era in 1990, Czechoslovakia started to cooperate with United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and so in 1992, first two Czech cities were chosen to be added to the World Heritage list. One of them was Prague, and the other one was, believe or not, this exceptonally well preserved medieval city. Do you want to know why? Then join me for this full day private trip to Český Krumlov and see this fairy-tale city with your own eyes!
To be honest, I have to admit that the idea of visiting Český Krumlov is not very original indeed. . . You will see that this place has already been discovered by tourists from the whole world. But I promise that we will stroll the side cobblestoned streets and enter hidden passages where we won't meet any crowds. Let me tell you about the Rosenberg noble family and their alchemists who lived there in the 16th Century.
The tour in the city is walking but it is not a very long distance.

A Recent Review of this tour

Our day in Cesky Krumlov was perfect. The tour was recommended by Marketa. She drove us to the city and is a very good driver. Markéta knows the city inside-out and took us to an excellent lunch spot. I can't imagine visiting the Czech Republic and not going to Cesky Krumlov, but go with Marketa!
