"I just returned from a fabulous bicycle tour of the Czech Republic by bicycle ably
led by Ivo Sterba. The thorough attention to every detail of the trip, the beautiful
countryside, and small group made ours a perfect trip. The highlight of the trip
for my husband was a tour of the Bohemia Regent brewery in Trebon and he is still
talking about it!"
Many thanks for the wonderful biking tour of the Czech Republic.
All of us were very happy with the way in which you showed us the many places
of your lovely country. The lunches and dinners were great. Thanks for choosing
such delicious meals, fruits and cheeses for us. I will recommend your tour
to my travel clients and friends.

Thank you for giving our small group a delightful, fun introduction
to Slovenia, we already want to make a future visit.
Peter and Jody Wardle
We have been back in the United States now for almost one week, and so many
wonderful memories of our biking trip with you in the Czech Republic float
through my mind. An incredible amount of knowledge and caring was required
to provide such a trip. We thank your very thorough attention to every detail
both during the trip and before we even arrived in Europe. All of these things
were sufficient to make an absolutely perfect trip.
Rosenbergs, Ann Arbor, Mi
We both thank you for a memorable two week trip through beautiful
countryside and interesting towns. We also appreciate your obvious care and
concern for our safety and well being. Among the sites we will remember the
most are the rugged mountains, the gorgeous vineyards, the turquoise color
of the river water, & the bright flowers in all the yards. And a special
thanks for the picnic lunches, wonderful dinners and careful driving through
the mountains. It was wonderful biking.

With 2 other couples, my wife and I just returned from Prague.
In a van, with our guide Jaroslav Minarik we took 4 days and nights on the
tour from Vienna to Prague. Previously we had told him what we wanted to
see, our interests and type of hotels. I cannot speak highly enough about
Jaroslav, his son Martin and their company. They are outstanding and I would
highly recommend you contact Martin for Eastern Europe. They do all kinds
of tours, custom, biking, walking and so on. There were only positives in
our dealings with both of them.
Addis Gutmann, Jr.
We loved the trip to Slovakia and the High
Tatras. We had lots of adventures and we found Martin to be a wonderful guide
- encouraging, helpful, philosophical and politically aware. We come home
with wonderful memories. Keep up the good work.

We have had a wonderful visit in the Czech Republic and are
very grateful to you for everything that you have done to make our trip memorable.
You have provided us with enough experiences including the wonderful walk
from Pavlov, the cooking lessons in Cesky Krumlov and primarily all of your
knowledge about your country’s history, culture, food and wine. Thank
you for all of extra effort that you have taken. We appreciate it greatly.

I am writing to commend most highly the outstanding job that
Jerry of Romantic Czech Tours performed for our party in Hungary, Slovakia
and the Czech Republic. He was competent and courteous as he guided us throughout
the area over our four day tour. More over, he made special arrangements
on more than on occasion beyond our agreements to ensure that we received
a unique and incomparable experience! I would recommend him for any other
groups or individuals who require services in those countries.
Wes Uhlman - former Mayor of Seattle, WA
The trip last month was absolutely perfect, and we had a
fantastic time. The memories linger vividly in my mind. I come home refreshed
and rejuvenated, like no other vacation before. I have been speaking highly
of your tour to all my friends and family. One day I hope to return. Thank
you so much for your hospitality.
Thank you very much for a great vacation. It really was fun seeing
your part of the world. The mountains in Slovakia are really spectacular
and your city of Prague is lovely. I have shown my pictures to the people
here including shots from a distance of the people climbing the chains in
the High Tatras. I have received all kinds of comments including "you
paid to do that for your vacation!" Although the chains were very scary,
I am glad that I did all the hiking days.
Again, many thanks,

Dear Martin and Jaroslav.
We thank you for all your logistic arrangements
to make our vacation truly exceptional. It cannot have been an easy task
to arrange it so we could all dine together and stay at he same hotel! We
loved our boats, and we loved our skippers. Together all of you gave us a
very interesting and fun trip filled with many fond memories. We wish you
a very successful summer.

Dear Ms. Dunbar.
I want to let you know how wonderful our biking trip was
in the Czech Repulic. I can honestly say that it was the best trip we have
ever taken and that it far exceeded all our expectations. When I say our
expectations were exceeded, I mean that the bicycles were better than we
expected, the accommodations were better, the food was better and most of
all the trip was far more interesting than I expected. We were treated to
so many special tours, special dinners, and special sights. Our guides were
extremely knowledgeable about the history and geography of the area. When
I fill out the questionairre and give the trip the highest ratings it is
because the ratings are deserved. Perhaps the most impressive aspect of the
trip was the attention to details by our guides. In addition to careful planning
of all the hotels and restaurants, they knew all the curves, hills and possible
obstacles on the tour. They thoughtfully prepared the picnic lunches on several
days, and provided special tours of sights like monasteries, museums, and
even a brewery. I had expected that we would simply ride between our hotels
on a general itinerary from Vienna to Prague. In fact, the trip consisted
of eight carefully selected and carefully planned bicycle trips on excellent
paved roads through lovely country and past many interesting sights. We will
certainly be taking other REI trips in the future.
Associate Profesor, University of Michigan
We have loved the whole trip. We especially enjoyed the castle
at Lockenhaus, the night on lake Balaton, the cove in Slovenia, the mountains,
Helikon castle, the wonderful ride down the mountains, the purple and red
poppy fields, the yellow mustard field, the wine tasting and all of the picnics
you arranged for us. Thank you! You have been an awesome guide!
Bob and Lois De Boer
Thank you for a wonderful and exciting trip that turned out better than we
expected. We returned home unwillingly, dreaming of going beck to the mountains.
We both hope to stay in touch with you and maybe even join you for another
I want to thank you for your wonderful support to me in preparation
for my cycling trip through the Czech Republic. I had a fantastic
time! The route notes and maps were adequately clear. When I got lost, it was because I second-guessed the directions/didn't follow them properly. When I
did veer off the suggested path (purposely or otherwise) I found myself in
beautiful parks, lanes, or villages. Even though I traveled alone, I never felt threatened in any way. The two taxi drivers that assisted me were
both fabulous, and most of the hotels I stayed in were adorable.
The Trebonsko region, though was tremendous fun to
Explore. I loved Lednice, and was very glad I had the chance
to explore that chateau and its grounds.
In the end, I learned so much about the southern Moravia and southern
Bohemia areas. I am already recommending the trip to all my friends
Thank you for a truly memorable experience!
