Before and After land stays

Recommended Posts

Going on a Crystal River Cruise down the Danube and thinking of taking the land package at the end. They motorbus  you from the ship to Prague. 3 days at a 5 star hotel with breakfast and another meal thrown in. Some sightseeing everyday and then a transfer to the airport home. But this add on is $1500 pp! Worth it or shall we book our own transport to Prague, find a hotel, and then sightsee at our leisure?

When booking on my own, I never stay at 5-star hotels.  I'm out sightseeing all day, and the hotel is for showering, changing clothes, and sleeping. You could save a lot of money right there.

For 3K for 3 days, you can easily travel 1st class to Prague, stay in a very nice hotel and still hire private tour guides and eat fantastic meals. .  Prague is super travel friendly and welcoming.

After our Rhine cruise Viking wanted $750 pp for 3d/2n in Lucerne post cruise..  We did just that for a fraction of that cost.  Trains made it super easy, since our flight home was out of Zurich.

We were in Prague for the second time in December 2019 on a land trip and stayed in the Grandium Hotel and found it very nice. Small room but we spend very little time there and breakfast was very good!

On our most recent trip to Prague, we stayed at a lovely 4 star hotel (Grand Hotel Praha) overlooking Old Town Square - we loved our stay here.. Very convenient for sightseeing, good price, shuttle to the airport, excellent service, well appointed rooms. What more could we ask for?
