Dear Lukas My wife and I are booked on another of your tours - the Bodensee Tour, We are looking forward to this. My wife and I enjoyed the tour in the Czech Republic enormously, as it revealed a part of Europe we seldom experience, and a very different picture of Prague than that existing when I first visited. I stayed for one obligatory day during 1977 when I flew to England with Air Czecheslovakia, and was placed in a hotel in "the well-known, popular, and sundreched holiday city" of Kladno. I took the tram to Prague and saw the city as it was at that time. What a difference. Even so I found Prague has some unusual sights, some resulting from mass tourism, and others a product of culture or history. The monuments, relics, and stories of the old iron-curtain were a particularly poignant reminder of how people sometimes make different choices in the way they regulate their societies. A restaurant of "the Good Soldier Svejk" was a humorous reminder of a famous Czech book I had read and enjoyed many years ago. The way beggars position themselves varies from country to country .... in Prague I saw a new position ..... abasement juxtaposed to uncaring tourism. The countryside of the Czech Republic is beautiful, and the people friendly, (probably because the worst tourists only ever stay in Prague). The pictures speak for themselves. I enjoyed the tour enormously. Cheers, Gerry Woerlee
We did the Prague-Vienna Easy tour with Europe Bike Tours and it was the highlight of our holiday. Vitek was great with communicating before we arrived and everything was organised extremely well once we began. The riding was mostly easy with a few challenging climbs along the way which made the food and beer taste better at the end of the day. Oh, and the beer! Best in the world I think. I would recommend these guys to anyone; if you want to do a cruisey bike tour and see some unbelievable history then do this one! Thanks again Vitek, hope to meet up with you another time.
Just returned from five days of cycling through the Czech and German countryside from Prague to Dresden. A wonderful experience - beautiful countryside, quaint accommodations, good food and excellent service. Lukas and company do all they can to please and support their riders. Try it - you'll love it! https://www.facebook.com/europe.bike.tours/inbox/1050733471748691/?notif_id=1527385462652608¬if_t=page_review&selected_item_id=1050733471748691
Just finished an 8 days tour from Prague to Krakow. We were 8 riders, all I can day is just compliments for so many things: the cyclo bikes we got, the planning of the route, mostly on cycle paths or small roads, passing through villages and forests. Accommodations were great, transfer of luggage always on time. Even the weather Lukas arranged for us was great! Highly recommended Arnold
We took the Prague – Dresde Family self-guided tour ons summer 2018. Travelled with two children (3 and 1 years old) and enjoyed very much. Lukas is a great profesional and a enthusiastic guide . He gave us a warm welcome in Prague! Excepting a climb on first day, the rest of the tour is flat and very easy to do with children. Accomodations were specially chosen for them and had a lot of fun. Errepikatuko dugu!
Prague to Dresden May/June 2017 - I thoroughly enjoyed the bike tour. I thought it was very well planned and all guides were super nice and helpful. The hotels were charming and the Chateau was a wow experience. Our group of ten was the perfect size and it was a great international mix of couples and singles. We all got along great, had a lot of fun together and made new friends. I can highly recommend your company and I am sure I will go on another tour in the future .
The Spa Triangle/Prague tour is absolutely gorgeous! Lukas and his team planned the rout really well to give you a variety of things to do. The scenery is utterly picturesque, full of rolling hills, idyllic pastures full of cattle and wheat and wildflowers. If you're into architecture, you can see Medieval castles along nearly every path and you can marvel at the influence of different cultures when it comes to town centers. Want to take it easy and go to some hot springs for relaxing baths? There's time for that. Don't want to go up some really tough hills? Take a ski lift. What's that? You *do* want more biking? Great, head on over to Germany! Because you stay the night in the same place a couple of times, you have flexibility with the loops you take. You can pick your own form of relaxation, whether that's at a spa or in the saddle. Moreover, there were times when I had loads of questions (being a lone traveler in a country whose language I do not speak) and found that Lukas was really attentive and helpful with timely responses to emails. I could not have asked for a better experience and would definitely book through this company again if I were to return to the Czech Republic. :)
I cannot say enough about how pleased I was with this bike trip! The guides that led our group were extremely accommodating ensuring everyone was enjoying their time. They went above and beyond in every aspect. What I expected was to be safely guided along the route. What a got was a very friendly and smart group of guys that not only guided but were very knowledgeable of the history of the area. Along with this, they seemed to genuinely care that we enjoy our experience by doing things like ordering delicious foods particular to the area. I hope to be fortunate enough to take another bike trip and I will be sure to use Europe Bike Tours again!
Hello Lucas and Vítek I wanted to say how much we enjoyed the Prague to Dresden independent bike tour we did with your company last September. The maps and trip notes were awesome and made the whole trip amazing! I have recommended your company to anyone I know that is thinking of doing a bike trip in your area. I hope you have a great 2017 Lorraine 1 of the 6 women bikers on the Prague to Dresden route
Dear Lukas + Honza Words can not express our appreciation for a most memorable experience! Lukas - your passion and knowledge of your amazing country was thoroughly enjoyed. The food + accommodation have been outstanding. Honza - we love your sense of humour! There was not a moment when we did not feel safe and always we were being pampered. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts! Della and Danny Wrzosek
Thank You Vitek for a sensational 10 days from Prague to Budapest in August this year. The variety of terrain, the history of the areas and castle towns we stayed in, coupled with oh so well chosen restaurants with local wines and beers barely touches how good it was! The bikes were excellent. I have done quite a few rides in the past and your bikes were excellent, well balanced and comfortable with evrything in good working order. The accomodation was mostly first rate for the price as is the value for money that this tour offered us. We really appreciated the great support and lively conversation from both yourself and Stepan. Special memories- too many to mention as every castle, town and village had its own flavour! Anyone who takes this ten dayride would not be disappointed with the experience as a whole. Cycling into Budapest on day ten with the views of the Parliament building capped it off nicely. Hopefully we can get over again for another ride.
Lukas We had an absolutely wonderful trip. Valerie and Stephan were great--they were knowledgeable, helpful, and showed us the real beauty of life on the Elbe. It was a fantastic tour. I tell everyone about it. You can be proud of your tour guides, the interesting variety of the tour, and the great bikes we rode--you had some tall people to equip, and you did it! Thank you again!! Christine Luzar
Hi Lukas, Hope you and your family are well! We still have very fond memories of our bike tour from Prague to Dresden. We liked it so much that we now got our own EBikes...........and thinking of new tours. Warm regards, Bernadette & Boyd Robinson Perth, Western Australia 15.1.17 Dear Lukas & Vitek, Thanks for your New Year wishes. We wish you and your families and friends the same. Look at our eBikes in front of the Indian Ocean. We love cycling again. And we still talk about the tour Prague to Dresden, absolutely loved it!!!! Warm regards, Bernadette & Boyd Robinson
Just a big thank-you for a very successful cycle trip for 6 ladies. We really appreciate your attention to us and the bikes in the beginning to get us off on the right foot. The city tour of Prague was excellent, your maps were great and all the hotels were very good and in the best locations. I will highly recommend your company. cheers, Charlene deGlopper Canadian cyclist.
Lukas did a fine job of organizing this Prague-Dresden self-guided trip. We've made a dozen similar trips throughout Europe and this was handled as well as any. The bikes were well tuned and the tires perfect for the conditions. The maps were easy to follow and the daily descriptions most helpful (no GPS needed). The hotels were very nice and the breakfasts amazing (we made extra cheese/salami sandwiches plus a piece of fruit each morning so we never needed to buy lunch). The day before we started, we took Lukas' Prague-by-Bike day tour which was excellent - the ex-teacher really knows his Czech history and the best sites of the city. We really enjoyed the experience and give this company, and Lukas, our highest recommendation.
Hello Lukas Bikes are on the stalls in the backyard and the bags with lockers keys are at the reception. The biking experience (our third bike journey but first in Czech Republic) has been enjoyable: some places really stunning and accommodations have been up to our expectations (slightly less the Ceska Koruna). The briefing was exhaustive, maps detailed and bicycles were performing well. Since it is easy to praise an organisation when everything is working, it's when we had a technical problem (double tube puncture) that Lukas has outperfomed sending us a new bike while we were hiking in Hrensko. We here been able to continue swiftly without losing time. I highly recommend it. All the best Patrizia
FANTASTIC TRIP You present the Elbe and all its history, geology, and grandeur --in 5 days! Something of interest for the whole family and great tour guides who are always up for a new exploration. Unforgettable. I tell everyone I know of our experiences!!
Dear Lukas, I, of course, recommend you and the yours to all my colleagues and friend who are asking! Returning to the tour, We with Ira want to thank you and Vitek for the great time and wish all the best and success! Maybe see you.in future, we really loved the tour.with you! I am going to post all the photos from the trip, will share the URL. Prague Dresden fully guided trip
Prague to Dresden -May 2017 We had a fantastic time. Vitek, Pavel, and Ditka were amazing. The scenery was breathtaking. We cycled with a group of seniors, staying in lovely hotels, and a beautiful Chateau near Melnik. Highly recommended.
We rented 10 bikes for our own trip and we couldn't be happier with the service we got! Smooth communication, bikes in a perfect condition and even delivery to the train station (at fairly non-standard times) where we started our journey. Definitely a great experience, thanks a lot!
Dear Lukas and Vitek, We had a wonderful time on the bike trip from Prague to Dresden - we have only positive comments and I hope that I can properly convey how pleased we were with the whole experience. We would definitely recommend the trip. Our tour of Prague was really interesting. Although we had been in Prague for a few days before beginning the bike tour we saw parts of Prague that we had not seen and had a chance to learn some more interesting historical information. You were both wonderful guides. You took us to interesting places on route, provided us with historical background information, made sure we were happy, answered questions, took care of the luggage etc. The hotels were all excellent. The rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were amazing. The restaurants for the evening meal were all well chosen and the food and beer were wonderful - much appreciated after a day of biking. The bikes were also wonderful - very stable and a real pleasure to ride. We were lucky to have good weather - rain only on the shortest day of biking (26 km) so we had arrived at our end destination by noon. The trip by van to the Saxon Switzerland National Park (instead of hiking) and lunch at the top was wonderful. The view was amazing. We were really pleased with this plan for the afternoon and happily explored - with our umbrellas. You were both very service oriented and always made sure that we were pleased and were enjoying ourselves. Thanks again, Joan and Alf
We were a group of 7 from Scotland and cycled self guided from Prague to Dresden. We had a wonderful time. The cycling was really great - very manageable and enjoyable. The countryside was very pretty and we took frequent stops to visit castles and stately homes - with a few coffee and beer stops along the way. We had not heard of Europe Bike Tours - but now we cannot recommend them highly enough. Vitek and Lucas were delightful, knowledgeable and very efficient. The Prague bike tour was great fun. We took an extra day in Prague, Bad Schandau and Dresden. A wonderful holiday enjoyed by all of us. Thank you! We hope to be back to try another route soon!

Lucas and Vitek. Thank you for a great cycling holiday from Prague to Dresden. Your enthusiasm, along with great hotels, meals, and history lessons, made for a very enjoyable and easy week. My spouse just might be jealous because I've been babbling about it frequently since I got back, and yes, he fed the cat. I am not on Facebook but I can see the pictures. It is interesting to see the world through the lens of others. So while I hung out at the back of the pack, I was able to sing and think and take a few pictures. The lyrics of my favourite song 'Bohemia' by Mae Moore: ....closer than I've ever been to feeling alive since I arrived in Bohemia.... It is my good fortune to have met you. I hope our paths will cross again. Pat
Took the Prague – Budapest 15 day tour via Vienna as a self-guided foursome. The tour is well planned by Lukas, especially the Prague – Vienna leg which appears to be tailored. Vienna – Budapest tends to follow the Euro bike trail and is flatter because it generally follows the route of the Danube. Prague – Vienna is a great route through lots of lovely countryside and forests and through smaller cities and villages and passing some historical sights. GPS maps and comprehensive trip notes were provided together with extra maps. You would be silly to attempt this without a GPS. The first few days include significant climbing, the route becomes less demanding after that. The roads are varied, ranging from good bike paths/roads to rough gravel and cobblestones so a mountain bike was definitely the right choice. The architecture and small city squares are magnificent and of the accommodation outstanding (we did opt up for the deluxe accommodation, mostly boutique hotels from homely to luxurious). The food, wine and beer were good and cheap. Luggage service was reliable – our bags were always waiting. We took an extra day in each of Prague, Vienna and Budapest – all well worthwhile. We did feel the bikes could have been a better specification and they needed maintenance along the way. A great value tour. Definitely recommend.
Today we received a really special present from our family tour on Prague-Dresden tour - honey from Bashkiria!!! Thank you!!!!
Lukas+Honza This trip has been above + beyond any expectation that we had. It has truly been outstanding + memorable! Loved learning about your beautiful country. Your knowledge + attention to detail was outstanding. Lukas - you think of everything - we have been so pamaered. We will be happy recommending your tours and company! Terry + Carolyn Gammel

Lukas is such an enthusiastic and knowledgable guide in Czech Republic and Prague Vienna touring. I did a cycle tour with him.
Hi Lukas! I thought you should know that my trip to the Czech Republic inspired me to become a repeat customer. Me and my boyfriend were in Tuscany with Duvine last week. There are a lot of hills there. Na zdravi! Sarah
