Straight talk

We want to make sure you're on the right trip and that you have the best experience possible. Every Backroads trip is unique and this one is no exception.

Service Standards

The Czech Republic is a welcoming and fascinating country in the process of exciting change. While not a priority during the country's communist years, service is improving, though you may not always experience the level of convenience or service typically found on Backroads trips. Know that your Backroads leaders are there to smooth out the edges and make you as comfortable as possible.

Accommodations

On this trip we spend two nights at the historic Hotel OLDINN, where guest rooms are clean and comfortable, but simpler than the typical Backroads standard. We've chosen this property because of its ideal location in the center of the World Heritage site of Český Krumlov.
