[...]Although we had been to Krumlov several times in the past, we had never thought about taking a free walk with a local guide… and we are so glad we did it finally! Jan is a great local guide and speaks an amazing English! He is funny, informative and very kind. He even made a phone call to check if there were still tickets available for a tour that he recommended. Read more... tomoeh2023, USA
