Bring your garb as we explore the picturesque Southern Bohemian town of Cesky Krumlov during the historical Five Petal Rose Festival. Tour the castle, gardens, and the amazing Baroque theatre. Get outside with a river rafting adventure while we discover the home of Pilsner beer and find out where Budweiser really comes from. Then it’s off to Prague for 4 days of excursions and adventures culminating in a medieval banquet deep under the city! We will see the famous Bone Chapel of Kutna Hora, take a walking tour of Prague, and see its many sights.
