A few more reasons why you've gotta go…

  • 1. The sound of music: Enjoy a classical concert in one of Prague or Vienna's many atmospheric venues, which include ancient churches, opulent concert halls, historic buildings and outdoor theatres.
  • 2. Not your average hot dog: Otherwise known in the US and Germany as Wiener (German for "Viennese"), Vienna offers a wide variety of tasty Frankfurters such as Burenwurst or Käsekrainer.
  • 3. The Fountain of Sampson: An impressive, gorgeous 18th-century fountain located in the center of one of the largest squares in Europe, this famous fountain once served as Ceske Budejovice's main water supply.
  • 4. The “Pivo”: The most famous Czech drink is actually beer, or pivo. A half-liter glass is often cheaper than a soft drink or cup of coffee!
  • 5. In-the-field expertise: from sharing regional insights to orchestrating group dynamics with ease, our guides keep their eyes on the details, ensuring that the hardest part of your vacation truly is going home.
