Anyone ever day trip to Chesky Krumlov from Linz stop?

My husband and I are taking the Tauck Christmas Market cruise from Vienna on Dec.13. Being Czech he would really like to day trip to Chesky Krumlov vs. Salzburg. We have seen Salzburg a few different times. Does anyone happen to know of a private guide that would pick us up at the ship and take us there? Thanks!

  • Tauck offers Chesky Krumlov as an excursion choice on the Blue Danube River trip…it was one of our favorite towns. I hope you can find a way to go…

    I don't know about the logistics of having one of their guides pick you up in Linz, but you might want to give PragueWalker a call to see what they can do. They are highly recommended by Rick Steves (his photo is on the website homepage and they appear in one of his videos) and receive high ratings from TripAdvisor. We hired them for a day trip from Prague to Cesky Krumlov before the start of the Blue Danube Cruise (so we could also do the Salzburg excursion later in the tour.) Tereza was our guide, she was fantastic. We also had her for a tour of the Jewish Quarter in Prague. I'm sure Viator will also have a number of guides/tours and you may find someone from Tours by Locals.

    The castle is open year-round and there is "an adorable" XMAS market in Svornosti Square. Read more here: https://www.ourescapeclause.com/cesky-krumlov-in-winter/

  • Thank you! I did look in the Rick Steves Prague book and found a guide!

  • I did but it was summertime, I would email your hotel, they should be able to book a day tour for you, if not look under Viator or tours by locals another one TripAdvisor.

  • went to Cesky Kumlov 2016 taking the Blue Danube trip. Charming town. Had lunch at a cafe called Jakub. Delicious food. We enjoyed the day trip

  • We enjoyed our trip to Cesky Krumlov on our Royal Danube cruise.We we’re surprised to see an article in Forbes 9/27/22 about it calling C K as Europe’s Fairy tale hidden gem.Coincidentally the article wrote about the restaurant Laibon a vegan restaurant that we had lunch by the Vltava river.
