Leatta's Custom 4 Night Prague Experience (Pre River Cruise) - Our little group of 7. November 2017

December 13, 2017

I find that I can create an enhanced personalized pre or post cruise option other than the generic options the river cruise and ocean cruises offer.  This is what I created for our small group of 7: 

 

I selected this hotel for the group based on one thing: LOCATION.  It's facing the Astronomical Clock in the cobblestones square where cars are not allowed to go. Some of my guests I only put in 5 Star hotels that are on a level starting sometimes at $800+ a night. I wanted everyone this time to forgo the luxury standards in favor of having a location at your doorstep along with the fact that this hotel had 2 bars, one even being a speakeasy that won't allow photo's taken so you can be as naughty as you want down there as long as you looked nice and passed the bouncers critical eye.  I ate at the resturant3 of the 4 nights, that's how good it was.  Breakfast was made to order with a buffet to die for, all with a view of this: 

 

 

 

Day One Tour - Private Prague Old Car

I had arranged for 4 old time cars to split us up for a few hours to explore on our on before meeting up at the Castle for our private walking tour. 

 

This is a my notes I put into my guests POCKET TRAVEL GUIDE APP on their phones:

 

Itinerary: Our sightseeing tours in classic cars Ford T or the Alfa Romeo Spider, are the perfect way to feel the magic of Prague and its streets. You can choose from several unique routes, all contain gems like the Rudolfinum or the Old-New Synagogue. Special requests on locations possible but not guaranteed.  Pick up at the U Prince Hotel and drop off is at the Castle where the group has a private 3 hour walking tour set up.

 

Please note; you may want to get a bit to eat along the way to tide you over as there will be no food options from 11:00 AM - 4:00 PM. I'm sure you driver will have a option for you. Try not to visit any of the grand cafes such as Cafe Savoy, as we will be having a Cafe Walking Tour the next day.

 

Private Prague Castle District & Strahov Monastery Tour

This is a my notes I put into my guests POCKET TRAVEL GUIDE APP on their phones:

 

Provided By: Context-Private Walking Tour:Praha Castle

 

The world's largest coherent castle complex, Prague Castle is a must when visiting the City of 100 Spires. Covering an area of almost 70,000 square meters, Prague Castle is said to contain nearly every architectural approach of the last millennium. From the gothic St. Vitus Cathedral to the romanesque Basilica of St. George, Bohemian baroque buildings to early 20th century renovations, the complex runs the stylistic gamut, and provides the perfect backdrop for exploring the history of the city and its many layers. The Strahov Monastery was founded in 1143 by Bishop Bishop John of Prague, and Duke Vladislav II. Thanks to numerous renovations it stands proud to this day, from atop a hill with magnificent views of the cityscape. During our time together, we'll visit various buildings that make up the Strahov Monastery, including the Basilica of Assumption of Our Lady. We'll also visit the Strahov Library, considered one of the world's most beautiful libraries. Please note that Prague Castle and Strahov Monastery entry fees (approximately 500 CZK) are not included in the price and will have to be paid per person on the spot. As this is a walking tour comfortable shoes are recommended. Our supplier is committed to providing intellectually curious and adventurous travellers with specialist guides and professionals for an in-depth cultural experience.

Private Half Day Excursion to Konopiste Castle - the groups fav tour so far!

This is a my notes I put into my guests POCKET TRAVEL GUIDE APP on their phones:

 

Half Day Excursion to Konopiste Castle with a Local Guide

Provided By: Half Day Excursion to Konopiste Castle with a Local Guide

Your local guide will collect you from your accommodation in Prague for a half day excursion to Konopiste Castle in a private vehicle. The vehicle will be at your disposal for the duration of the service and your local guide will remain with you throughout the tour. Your guide will introduce you to the main features of Konopiste Castle but will also be happy to discuss any specific sightseeing requirements with you. You can expect your local guide to have a good overall knowledge of the castle but if you require exceptionally in-depth commentary on a particular aspect, this may not be possible. At the end of the tour, you will be returned to your accommodation in Prague.

 

 Private Coffeehouse Tour Tour

This is a my notes I put into my guests POCKET TRAVEL GUIDE APP on their phones:


On this tour, we'll look at the key role that the city's spectacularly preserved coffee houses have played in the lives and works of the influential artists, poets, writers and intellectuals who frequented them. Before a backdrop of opulent, decorative interiors from 19th and 20th centuries, we'll soak up the authentic atmosphere of Prague's cafe culture, taste local coffee and culinary specialities, and learn about the historical and cultural context of these venues. Turn-of-the-century Prague bore witness to an extraordinary cultural and intellectual blossoming. As a result of momentous events within the Austro-Hungarian Empire, the population of Prague increased rapidly as people moved in from across the empire. The Bohemian capital became a melting pot, home to Germans, Jews and Czechs, and Prague's new decadent cafes emerged as public meeting points for the city's intelligentsia, for example, German-Jewish author Franz Kafka, philosopher and statesman Vaclav Havel, and later, world-famous writer Milan Kundera.

Beer Spa.  Enough said. 

 

I was the only person brave enough to do this. LOVED IT!

 

Beer spas first became popular in the Middle Ages. The ancient, unique therapy uses hops, yeast, and other natural ingredients to create one of a kind recipes that mimic Beer Bernard. No wonder beer baths have so many health benefits! The main difference is that barley isn’t added to the beer bath, to eliminate the possibility of allergic reactions. The beer spa experience also includes unlimited drinks of unpasteurized beer Bernard® throughout the entire time. The combination will leave you feeling revitalized as well as healthy and relaxed.


The beer spa experience consists of two parts. First patrons soak in a private Beer Bath for two while drinking UNLIMITED beer Bernard. Then they’re invited to relax and of course enjoy more beer. The experience takes about one hour all together. Those that opt for beer massages as part of their package should expect to spend an hour and half at the spa.

Beer baths are a proven medical procedure from the Middle Ages, known to cleanse the pores, increase pulmonary circulation, regenerate skin and hair and revitalize the nervous system. It’s necessary to keep the correct temperature, time of the bath, and right dosage of ingredients to ensure maximum health benefits. The bathing experience takes place in special tubs designed for the Beer Spa. This allows bathers to experience the greatest absorption of healing properties.

For the best results, bathers shouldn’t shower within 12 hours of the experience. It’s recommended that those with healthy immune systems repeat the procedure once a month, if not more often.
Original Beer Spa Souvenir

Every visitor gets an original bottle of Beer Bernard® with the historical seal and certificate of completion.
