Tour: #4152, Cesky Krumlov - Private trip (the place recommended by Rick Steves), Prague, Czech Republic    view tour
Date: Apr 10/18

Really interesting tour. Cesky Krumlov itself is quite small - but it is very pretty. Its a long drive to get there but a good chance to find out more about the recent history of the Czech Republic and experience more than just the city of Prague. I found the guide's personal experience stories to be fascinating. I won't forget the drive back, driving so close to the German border and seeing all of the old communist watch towers.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Julia! I am glad you and your family enjoyed the trip to Cesky Krumlov! Jiri

Jiri was a wealth of information! He is passionate about his country - pace was fast and we saw lots of sights almost too fast - many times we lagged behind and had to catch up. I would rate this as a "moderate" exersize tour many stairs and uneven cobblestone paths - we are in shape adults and were worn out by end of tour !

We thoroughly enjoyed our tour to Cesky Krumlov with Jiri. The drive through the countryside, while long, was beautiful. During the ride, Jiri shared his unique perspective of life in Prague during and after the Communist regime. Hearing about his experience was fascinating. Cesky Krumlov was a beautiful place to visit. Having Jiri as our guide added to the experience. His knowledge of the history and architecture of the place as well as how to avoid the worst of the crowds was impressive.

Our group of four booked our Terezin tour with Jiri. Having had a wonderful experience with a different guide on a walking tour of Prague, we were disappointed with Jiri. He had a lot of knowledge but he would not tolerate questions. He was very cranky and left us at each location to wander on our own while he visited with ticket agents or went to have a coffee. I would not recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Susan! Courtesy is for me always in first place and do my best to keep each customer satisfied. That's why, at the end of your tour, I took the extra step and drove your group all the way to the top of Strahov monastery instead of your hotel. I am sorry that you felt that way.

Jiri picked us up from the hotel and drove us up to Terezin - the drive took about an hour. He took us to several sites in the town and we toured the small fortress with its own guide. It was invaluable to be able to see the town and its buildings in historical context, and to gain a deeper appreciation for what occurred there. We have no hesitation recommending a tour to Terezin with Jiri.

Jiri was just great. He met us at our hotel, gave us a history of Prague and then lead us on a very interesting walking tour of Prague. Jiri took the time to point out not only the well known buildings and sites of Prague, but to give us historical facts and details, as well as point out lesser known elements. We definitely recommend Jiri to anyone coming to Prague.

Jiri is a very knowledgeable gentleman and an excellent guide. I appreciated that he sent an email to me when I booked the tour to confirm date, time and location of hotel pickup. He does not participate in the brewery tour but made sure we arrived in more than enough time to be able to visit the old square, have a very nice lunch and convenient drop off an pick up at the brewery entrance. He shared his knowledge of the countryside and the history and answered all of our questions. Highly recommended!

Jiri was the perfect guide for an introduction to Prague's history and architecture. Before setting out he presented clear maps showing jurisdiction and border changes through many centuries. it was just the right amount of information. We then walked through four current neighborhoods spanning both sides of the river and covering essentials for a first-time visit. Jiri's genuine interest in Prague and people and his generosity sharing from personal experience added to the tour.

We took a tour with Jiri during our vacation in Prague. It turned out to be the best money we spent for the entire trip. He provided great insight on the history of both the country and city. On the tour he took us to the key locations while pointing out other locations that weren't our time. He also saved us money by pointing out locations that charged for admission that he could explain to us. Jiri was very pleasant and well educated on the city. I would recommend him for any future trips to Prague.

Perhaps you do not realize that the other couple that you brought with you to the tour was walking rather fast (and I have asked them several times to slow down so you can keep up with them; you may have not even noticed it); it is hard to talk to all four of you when you are often apart from each other.

Mr. Jiri offered a "Driving Tour of Prague." Most of the tour was walking. I have health issues ,and requested a Driving Tour. As it turns out my health was ok, that day, so I could walk more, but I was not asked if I could walk or if it was better to drive. He was very well scripted and a little rushed on his presentation. No interruptions to ask questions. Jiri needs to brush up his knowledge of the John Lennon Wall. Truthfully, I didn't think it was worth the money.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry, Sue, you seemed to be quite happy with the way the tour went; this tour is listed as "partially walking" one for there are many "strictly pedestrian" areas throughout the historical parts of Prague. I enjoyed your and your husband's company very much! Sincerely, Jiri

Tour: Private trip from Prague to Auschwitz and Birkenau., Prague, Czech Republic
Date: Aug 12/16

Jiri C drove us today from Prague to Auschwitz, 950km. He was outstanding.he knew his history, he was a great driver, he had a new and very comfortable vehicle and he was concerned about my diabetes and needing to eat on schedule. It was a long day and he was only concerned that we enjoy the day. He gets five stars plus in our books. We travel a lot and we experience a lot of average guides. Jiri was fantastic. Thank you so much Jiri for making this the highlight of our trip.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Diane! I also enjoyed your company and really apreciate your patience during the long ride! Sincerely, Jiri

Date: Aug 9/16

Jiri was an excellent guide, very knowledgeable and interesting. However, we were very surprised to learn that we would be riding the subway (with train transfers) to the Jewish quarter and returning by bus to our hotel. This came as quite a surprise, particularly since one of our group is a semi-handicapped person.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gail! Thank you for your positive rating; I really appreciate it! This tour is "strictly walking" one and because your hotel is not within walking distance, we had to get to the Jewish quarter somehow. Anyway, it did not take us more than 15 minutes to get to our destination and I was always with you... With warm regards, Jiri

Jiri tried very hard to do something, but a long heavy rain completely stymied all his efforts. We hide until awnings and store fronts as he gave us a great history lesson. Soon some of the streets flooded, we were drenched and finally just had to give up. Jiri apologized over and over, as if he could have changed anything. Between his schedule and ours there was no way to reschedule. Mother Nature definitely won this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill! I am glad that you look at the unfortunate situation this way! It was joy having you here in Prague! Sincerely, Jiri

Tour: The night river cruise of Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
Date: Jul 22/16

While Jiri was fine, the private "tour" was really a taxi ride to the boat. No fault to Jiri, but the five or ten minutes we had with him did not justify this cost. On the boat, the dinner was poorly organized. We barely got any food due to the rush of people to the buffet. This compares poorly to the dinner cruise on the Spree in Berlin. The food was excellent, and the commentary on the cruise (nonexistent for the Prague case) was interesting, instructive, and wonderful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear John! It seems that the boat management changed recently. I am very sorry about your experience and, as a result of it, I took this cruise off the list of offered tours. Please, accept mu appology! Jiri

Tour: The night river cruise of Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
Date: Jul 17/16

Tour cost 247US. I could buy cruise tickets for 88US. There I paid 159USfor pickup and drop-off. At time of booking we were not aware that our hotel was directly across the street from the boat dock. The driver, who was very nice, was embarrassed that it was so close and as we had an hour to kill before departure, he drove us around to areas if Prague we had not see.. At drop-off he pointed outa s staircase we could take from dock to our hotel. A real rip off. Surprised at you

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jonathan, this tour is designed for people from hotels not as close to Intercontinental. I wish you had contacted me, just like most other customers do, prior to booking this tour, I would have advised you accordingly. I tried to make up for the fact that your hotel is so close to the ship embarkment area by showing you part of our beautifull city and driving you around Prague's non-touristy areas instead. Sincerelly Jiri C. in Prague

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Upon reflection, Jiri has taken this tour offering down, to prevent any future misunderstandings.

Tour: The night river cruise of Prague, Prague, Czech Republic
Date: Jul 12/16

We were picked up on time at the hotel and transported both ways in a comfortable van. The boat was ok, but the buffet was a disappointment. Drinks are not included. I would have given this 3 stars. However, the last 30 min was the payoff. Seeing the city from the river light up was beautiful. However, be warned, this is a paddle boat and trying to get a steady shot with the shaking is difficult. In retrospect, we might not have done this cruise and opted for a sit down restaurant.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks for the comment! Jiri

Giri shared memorable personal insights from living through Prague Spring and the Russian invasion, then living in USA, then returning to homeland after the Velvet Revolution. I would definitely recommend Giri to visitors and I look forward to using his services next time I return to Prague.

Jiri is very knowledgeable and interesting. We loved that he took lots of time before we set of into the city, just showing us the history of the Czech Republic and how things came to be as they are today. He knows a lot and communicates very well. He keeps up a good pace but is sensitive to when we were a bit slower than he is. He showed us how to use the subway, which we enjoyed for the rest of our stay in Prague. All in all, I recommend him highly!

Our tour from Prague to Cesky Krumlov with Jiri was wonderful. We rate him 5 out of 5. The drive, though long, was both only informative and entertaining (he has a dry sense of humor that we appreciated). The walk through Cesky Krumlov ending with the lunch was fabulous. What a beautiful and fascinating town, which we never would have gotten to without a guide and driver. The day was a treat, and very special in that it showed us the countryside and another fabulous town in addition to our stay in Prague.

He began in our hotel dining area with a brief overview of history and geography which was very useful. He listened attentively to questions and gave comprehensive answers, and extended our tour by a half hour. He was recovering from a stomach bug but you wouldn't have known it by the effort he gave. Great tour and great guide.
