Very nice tour. The only thing I didn't like was when we tried to eat dinner at Na Spilce on the property. The place was 2/3 empty and they wouldn't seat us because they said they had 120 people coming. There was more than enough room for the 120 plus the 3 of us. They had even bragged on the tour that it was the biggest restaurant in the Czech Republic.

This was a very interesting tour, covering the whole process of beer making. We got to see various buildings and the processes were explained in very interesting and varied ways eg diagrams, videos, pictures, wall charts as well as the very interesting tour guide of course. We were escorted on and off a bus a few times and taken to several of the buildings across the huge site. We ended up with a walk through the cellars where we saw some beer being brewed in the traditional manner in huge open barrels, then all got given a very refreshing glassful!
