Matthias and Martin were great guides, fun, helpful and knew their facts. It rained for most of the day, but they were undaunted and encouraged us.

Had the best day.
We had a lot of fun and the sights were outstanding. Spectacular!

The weather cleared towards the end of the day and we had a magical river cruise.

It was a strenuous day though. But really worth the effort.

I suggest on the website that information should include wearing appropriate clothing and footwear. And carry a backpack with items to cater for a range of weather types.
Also you should be fit and healthy to walk many kilometers and many flights of stairs.

I highly recommend this tour group and visiting this area.

My husband and I booked this small group tour with Viator when we were planning a tour in Prague. At first we thought it’s a bit pricey but thought it was worth it nawong from the inclusions . Jan from Cayman tours picked us from the hotel at 7 am. We were in a mini van with 3 tourists, the driver and the tour guide/owner. Jan was warm and oriented is on what to expect as written in the itinerary. First stop is about 1.5 hrs from Prague, we didn’t mind as it was an early pick up so we had a chance to take a nap along the way. Then we got to our first stop just before 9, at the Saxon Switzerland National Park when there few tourists yet. We had a better chance to take better photos as we can since the tour buses didn’t arrive yet. Jan is well versed and learned at what he does and make sure to interact with us. Then we left for The Bohemian part of the trip which was just less than 30 min drive as we heard back to Czech from the Germany border.
The hike heading up to the top part of Pravcicka brána was a good moderate 2 km walk/hike in our comfortable shoes. We got to the summit in less than 30 mins and boy...the view was amazing and of course a free drink of anything you want before coming down for lunch. We got a Czech dark Budweiser that quenched our thirsts.
Coming down was a bit easier and got to eat past 1. Lunch was another nice treat with good local food, drink and the company of nice people around.
The gorge part was exciting too, more time to explore nature and rain forest . The dinghy rose to cross to the other man made river bank was just 20 mins. Jan filled us with funny, interesting optical visions around as to make us not get bored .
We reached to our hotel just before 7 pm, very satisfied and quite much of amazing experiences.
Viator has a good description of what is inclusive in this trip.
Kudos to Jan Cerny of Cayman Travel , tour guide/owner!

We took the Edmund Gorge boat ride starting from Menza to Hrensko. The descent to the dock was steep and on rocky steps which made it laborious. But once you reach the bottom, it's an easy flat trail to the dock. As it was about 5pm, the sun was low and the beautiful sunlight shone through the trees beautifully. Shrouded in mist, the boat ride was magical and worth the trip. Paid 6 Euros for 2.

Visit to Prague is incomplete without visiting Bohemian Switzerland National Park. We took guided tour by North Hikers from prague and they organized everything with perfection. Its amazing natural beauty there and note toi mention it is not very much crowded. We did hiking in lush green jungle and boating experience was also memorable. No doubt it will cut you from rest of the world and exceptionally soothing.
