We had scheduled four tours with Honza. Each day he picked us up at our hotel and returned us after the end of the tour. Honza never rushed us and let us set the pace. The first day we took a four hour walking tour of Prague. Honza explained the history and the architecture of the buildings as we walked. Monday Honza drove us to Dresden Germany for the Christmas markets. Tuesday we toured Kutná Hora. Wednesday we toured Cesky Krumlov. Honza was the best travel guide I have ever experienced. He is friendly, knowledgeable and he speaks English very well. He not only explained the sights but answered all our questions and advised us on shopping and restaurants. If you go to Prague; contact CZExperience and let them guide you.
Preston from Pennsylvania
We have been on several group tours. Having Honza for a private guide for our group of 4 was so much better. He is knowledgeable and accommodating. We spent 4 days with him and 1 day with Lenka. We saw so much and learned so much about this beautiful area. Highly recommend him and his company.
Anne from Ohio
Honza and his team provided a well-organized excursion for me alone to the amazing Jizera Mountains, northeast of Prague. We explored hiking trails that I could never have found on my own and stayed at two lovely mountain inns with fabulous simple local food. Honza himself is an excellent guide and engaging walking mate — knowledgeable worldly informative. Highly recommended if you want to get out of the tourist mill of Prague and well off the beaten track.
Don from Toronto
Honza was a fantastic tour guide. He was very professional, good-natured, and knowledgeable. His van was new, clean and spacious. We gave him an idea of where we wanted to go, and he arranged the itinerary. We spent 3 days with him, starting in Prague and staying overnight in Karlovy Vary and Český Krumlov. On the way we stopped in historical towns like Loket, Pilsen, and Třeboň (just to name a few). He also brought us to a beautiful lakeside resort that was not part of the original itinerary, but we were lucky enough to visit. It was a lot to see and Honza shared his vast knowledge of the history and sites in each region, and really made our trip interesting. He tailored the experience to suit our own personal interests, which wouldn’t have happened had we gone on a group tour. The hotels and restaurants he arranged for us were top-notch. He made our trip very enjoyable and stress free. We would highly recommend him as a tour guide for anybody visiting the Czech Republic.
Joanne and John from Toronto
I highly recommend Honza and Czexperience to anyone who is traveling to Czech. Whether it is for a day or a week or more, the personable service and attention to detail was superb. We were introducted to Honza via mutal friends and they were right, if you want to see Czech Republic, Honza was the guide you would want.
Christy from Boston
Czech Republic is not just about Prague. Its mountains and scenery is amazing. We couldve see it without Honza’s help. He enthusiastically explained to us every little detail, answered our curiosity, and accommodated to all our request. He made sure we wont be missing all the good things! He went more than just giving us the tour and details, but he gave us a total experience. We really has an amazing time exploring Bohemian Saxon National Park, it was awe inspiring trip. Totally recommended!
Kristel from Singapore
We were so lucky that we found this amazing company to take us on a beautiful tour outside of Prague! Our guide Honsa picked us up at our hotel and talked about what we wanted to see and do for a perfect day outside the city of Prague. We took beautiful back roads To the amazing city of Kutna Hora. Besides seeing wonderful and historical sites throughout the charming village, we learned so much about his country the history and also growing up in Czech republic during and after the communist rule And seeing the amazing change after.
We Cannot wait to recommend this company to friends who are visiting the area. We also want to come back and see more of the Czech republic. We highly recommend this company!
Marchelle from California
My friends and I just returned from the Czech Republic and we had the pleasure to meet Honza through Czexperience. We spent 4 days touring the Czech Republic and we had a blast learning about the Czech history, trying culinary delights, and visiting most amazing places. Honza is an amazing guide, extremely knowledgeable and personable. He took the time to communicate with all of us, and he made sure that at the end of the day we were all happy with how the day went by. He customized our tour, so we had the great privilege to visit the beautiful towns of Karlstejn and Kutna Hora, the enchanted castles of Krivoklat and Cesky Krumlov (I fell in love with this place), the old silver mine and the bone church in Kutna Hora, and the glass factory in Nizbor.
Last minute changes in the itinerary? Not a problem for Honza, and even if we did not have a chance to see a few of the places that were on our initial list for irrelevant reasons, Honza made sure we saw even better ones. He is ever so positive! Honza’s food recommendations were also the best (trust your guide, and try what he suggests). I am happy to have tried a lot of dishes I might have missed otherwise. We could not have enjoyed our time in the Czech Republic more. We are thankful for all that you showed us, for all your stories, and for your incredible patience, Honza! We are happy we chose CZEXPERIENCE and we will for sure return one day. There is still so, so much more to see.
Madalina from Romania
We visited Prague in August 2018–such a beautiful and interesting city. We also happened to visit during a major heat wave, but Honza didn’t blink an eye when we said we wanted to walk from the downtown area up to the top of Petrin Tower and back. He planned the route, made it interesting for the kids, and we learned a lot. A thoroughly enjoyable day and we would recommend highly.
Brian from Florida
From the time we met Honza, we felt like he was a friend. We booked a busy day, first going to the Terezin Memorial and then to Kunta Hora. Honza picked us up at our hotel promptly at 9 am in his new and comfortable van and the next nine hours flew by.
We asked so many questions about the history of the Czech Republic, culture, politics, food, beer and so many other topics and we always had thoughtful conversation. Honza is young, motivated and really wants to provide an outstanding experience for his clients. I would recommend him to family and friends.
Alan from Oregon
My wife and I have had the opportunity to travel many places across the world. One thing that we do not prefer, is being part of large tour groups and prefer to explore and learn at our own pace. We planned a portion of a two week trip in the Czech Republic, but needed someone to drive us from Vienna, to Cesky Krumlov, and finally Prague. Preferably, we wanted to have them provide commentary on the history of the country. Enter Honza at CZExperience! Honza was very personable and was easily answer any questions my wife and I had about the places along our voyage. Car was clean with working air conditioning too. I’d recommend others that want a private tour to make a reservation with CZExperience.
Shine from Michigan
Had a great tour of Cesky Krumlov and Bohemian paradise with Honza. We made last minute plans to hike in bohemian paradise . He was able to accommodate us for a reasonable price. Both locations are very unique and definitely worth the visit.
Sunny from Massachusetts
I highly recommend planning an excursion with Czexperience. I was on trip to the Czech Republic for a wedding celebration and as part of the group activities we took two tours with them and they were phenomenal! One trip was in the woods and part of a nature preserve about an hour outside of Prague by van. It was beautiful and the views were stunning. We had lunch at a castle and also visited some ruins, with another spectacular vista. Another day we went on a walking tour of the city of Prague. We got to see many of the sights that Prague has to offer: buildings, castles, bridges, etc. all while getting more of the history behind them as all. I would do it again.
Mateo from Washington D.C.
WOW! We cannot say enough wonderful things about Honza! We scheduled for a transport from Prague to Vienna with a stop in Cesky Krumlov and tour with Honza. He was prompt and greeted us with a warm smile. Instantly, we felt like old friends. He was so knowledgeable, informative, and his stories were so fascinating! We had wonderful conversation all day and learned a great deal about not only Prague and Cesky Krumlov but also life in the Czech Republic and travel. At dinner that night, all my family and I could talk about was how much enjoyed our time with Honza and all that we had learned from him. He is an excellent guide and very patient and really takes the time to get to know you and your family. He is so personable and a wonderful person to be around and made our experience truly enjoyable! He also directed us to the best places to eat that were off of the “tourist traps” and the best coffee, etc. We will recommend Honza to all of our family and friends 110%!!!
Amy from California
My mother and I had an incredible day trip with Honza and his wife, Zuzka on Sat Oct 7th to the Lednice Chateau and the annual Valtice Wine Festival in South Moravia. It was a superb day. It was a fairly long drive from Prague (nearly 3 hours) but our conversation with Honza in the car on life in the Czech Republic now and in the past along with his enthusiasm and knowledge of history and current events made the drive go by very quickly. The Chateau and gardens were fantastic (a mini Versailles). The festival exceeded expectations with music, dancing, a parade and great food and wine. All in all an A+ travel experience. Next time we will book more trips with Honza but if we do venture this far out of Prague it might be best to spend at least one night as part of the trip so that we don’t have to drive both ways in one day.
Mark from British Colombia, Canada
We had two fantastic day trips with Honza of Czexprience! We had originally booked a day trip to Český Krumlov and enjoyed it so much that we asked him to take us to Kutná Hora the following day. Honza is prompt, knowledgeable and very interesting to talk to. In addition to seeing the sites and learning about the area we had great conversations about Czech history, politics and culture, learning far more than we would have touring on our own. There are lots of fun options for trips and they have great recommendations for food and drinks. We highly recommend Czexperience!
Rebecca from Washington D.C.
Our 2 day tour to South Moravia with Honza was just fantastic! Its beautiful region and the locally produced wine is also great. Honza is the best tour guide we ever met. Thank you!
Jennifer from Texas
Thank you Honza from my heart for your kindness, openness, and for sharing all your knowledge about so many aspects of the Czech Republic with us. It was just the BEST way to start our trip and I wish that I was headed back soon but that isn’t in the cards for me right now.
Judy Terry from Denver
Thank you Honza and your wife again for the 2 nice trip in Czech, we really enjoy it. You are a very good guide, knowledgeable, patient, and so kind to us.
Looking forward to seeing you and your wife next time in Prague again!
Shen Qian from Shanghai
4 of us spent 5 days with Honza around Prague and even at the places where Honza did not expect to take us. We very much appreciated his personality and ability to accommodate our desires and changes to the plan. Honza has a great personality and a pleasure to talk to and learn. Honza took us to Bohemian Switzerland Natural Park, Karlovy Vary, Kutna Hora / Sedlec Bone Church trips were great. Chodovar Beer Spa was a very unusual experience. Cesky Krumlov was awesome and a trip we will never forget. Budweiser brewery excursion was a good final touch before Honza drove us to Vienna. We highly recommend Honza for a very cool experience in Czech Republic.
Pavel from Chicago, USA
My small group of 4 went to Kuntna Hora with Honza and it was A+ in every way. He was on time, his car was nice, he’s a very good driver, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We loved our tour with him and the little town of Kuntna Hora. He also provided our airport transportation a couple of days later. We would highly recommend this day trip, and also this company and Honza.
Sherry from Texas, USA
Excellent tour to very interesting places. Perfect tour guide and very comfortable transport.
Lauren from Zimbabwe
Dear Honza, we certainly enjoyed the outside Prague tour with you and your wife. It was really a great day out!
Martin, US Junior Tennis Team, USA
“Czexperience rocks! I had really fantastic time with Honza and Zuzka and can only recommend it!”
Tom from Gladsotne, Australia
“Such an amazing trip thanks Honza!!! Honza was a superb host and showed us some great sites! We saw the best of Prague and Southern Czech Republic and couldn’t have asked for a better time while there. We even got to try the local Carp. Would definitely use Czexperience again.”
“I had a great time in the Czech Republic with Honza and Zuzka. These guys showed me the best places and took really good care of me. I recommend their services.”
Phil from Portugal
“I met Honza back in 2002 in Australia. He is such a pleasant person, full of interests and a real globe trotter. We kept in touch throughout this time and I could not miss the chance to visit him in his beautiful homeland on different occasions. Thanks to Honza Pavelka and later also to Zuzana Pavelkova Safarova, my times in Czech Republic were fantastic. Their exceptional knowledge and passion for history, arts, sports & dining made me discover Prague and surrounding from a very different point of view, visiting the hidden gems that only locals know. I was amazed by their positive and happy attitude, together with their attention to details and can’t wait to go back and live another CZEXPERIENCE!”
Yumi from Italy
Super helpful local knowledge!
I spent time with Honza over 4 days in June 2017. He is so considerate and knowledgeable – not only of local information but also world events. I appreciated being able to ask lots of questions about where things are and what bus/tram to catch, but also understanding what else Czech has outside Prague. I would recommend Honza to anyone wanting to visit Czech and connect or adventure with a local. He is so easy going,
