The tour was alright but I do not recommend - the guide Mike was helpful and knowledgeable - while I found much of the tour to be boring the Wine Cellar was interesting and unique easily the highlight of the day - the wines offered during the tasting ranged from not good to almost okay - no desire to purchase any of the offerings. We traveled to and from the winery using public transportation mostly bus which was hot and crowded - the tour stated we would be picked up at our hotel - we were not - received an email a day or so before changing the meeting point causing us to travel some distance to meet the tour guide as he was unable to come to our hotel because he had other guests to meet/pickup - this was irritating as we needed to hire a taxi to transport us to the meeting location. In my opinion you can make better use of your time 7hours and money.
Mike was an excellent guide and provided us with a lot information regarding Prague and Czech history.
