Bernadette & Julius Cisek, Alameda, California
Here´s the referral. Again, thank you so much for making our experience hassle-free and memorable! My husband and I like to do our own thing, without the restrictions of being a part of a tour group or such. Having only three days to spend in Prague, it was important that we hit the maximum amount of sites with the minimum amount of fuss.
David worked with us in customizing our itinerary, without any sort of hard sell. He was extremely accommodating and truly listened to our needs. Our Go Real Europe experience started with a brief questionnaire on the website regarding our “travel style.” I was really surprised, upon receiving the initial itinerary, how perfectly suited it was to us. More importantly, having gone with the itinerary has turned out to be the best resource for our trip. We were coming in from Krakow, via railway, and David provided us with detailed instructions to take the Metro to the hotel. When we got there, we were immediately given a map and Metro tickets to use during our stay. We really appreciated the map (with information on points of interest, shopping, restaurants and cafes in each specific area) which eliminated the hassle of trying to figure out what to see and where to eat.
We did include a guided tour of the Medieval Town of Kutna Hora, though we were apprehensive about this as well. Again, my husband and I like to explore things our own way and we were afraid that having a guide would mean listening to too many details and having to stick to a pre-determined plan of some sort. We were pleasantly surprised when the guide, Petr, turned out to be someone who matched our sensibilities. He answered all our questions and did not bog us down with unnecessary factoids or worse, silly jokes (which a guide in Poland once did!). Petr was such a pleasure to be with, it was almost like having a friend of a friend show us around.
All in all, we were very happy to have used Go Real Europe and will do so again should our future travels take us to any of the other destinations they service. In a word, the experience was invaluable!
