I have been a tour guide for more than 16 years. I live in a small uniquely preserved historical city of Cesky Krumlov, UNESCO site in South Bohemia, the Czech Republic.  I love history nad arts, it is my passion. I am very active in sports. That is why my job is my hobby and I enjoy it at all times.

In 2001, I decided to start my own business developing services of daily city walking tours to Cesky Krumlov Old Town and Castle exteriors available for independent travelers. This is how Krumlov Tours started. There were not many visitors to Český Krumlov  in early 2000 so it was very hard to keep this service alive. As the market is changing and there is no existing Czech legislation to protect professional licensed and educated guides services, tour guides are not obliged to have a license anymore, which leads to the lowering of the quality and offering tours for free.  We have heard so many fantastic made-up stories and funny lies from the not-educated or foreign guides in the streets of Český Krumlov. It is us, licensed guides who feel a shame.
