TOUR DIRECTOR JOHN BRYDEN WRITES
"In Prague's historic old town square with its enormous Christmas tree we will welcome in the New Year in the very heart of Europe. The decorated ceilings of the Strahov Monastery and the sight of the nearby cathedral dominating the skyline will last long in the memory of travelers. Down in southern Bohemia, we visit two fine castles under the effervescent and enthusiastic guidance of Fìlip Bis, a local guide whose father worked as the castles' site administrator for many years. Throughout the tour, the colourful music of Smetana and Dvořák will keep our spirits high."
Please note that this tour involves a significant amount of walking, including several walking tours, and it will also involve navigating steps without handrails at the visit to Jindřichův Hradec Castle. Participants will therefore require a good level of fitness.
