“This group is one of my favourite things about being an Expat in Prague. I love the outdoors, but planning things when I do not speak any Czech can be a bit tricky and time consuming. I have done various hikes with Filip, I just love how everything is taken care of, I do not need to plan or worry about anything! just need my gear and enthusiasm and off we go hiking, netwalking or cannoing... Filip is a great guide; organised, friendly and good fun! This is also a good group to meet people in the city, some of them became good friends!”
