Tours Pavlina (CZ) is Doing
Budapest-Vienna One-Way Sightseeing Tour Bus
Visit the imposing Eszterházy Palace, Tata Castle and towns of Sopron & Győr on your way from Budapest to Vienna.
Outside of guiding, my passions are...
definitely traveling (what kind of tour guide would I be if my passion was not traveling?!), learning foreign languages (always better to be able to talk with locals in their own language), sport (to be fit and able to carry my backpack when traveling), and talking (be ready to be asked a lot of curious questions).
I love my job because...
it’s my hobby and it’s never the same. Even though I drive the same route, there is always something new. Plus, I always learn something - talking to people from different cultures makes me more knowledgeable, open-minded, and gives me even more passion for travelling.
My favourite place on Sidetrip tours is...
the route between Karlstejn and Pilsen - driving through small villages and the beautiful nature with beautiful views. The road is quite narrow so it requires quite good driving skills and concentration. I have a lot of personal stories to tell about this area as well.
Sidetrip is better than travelling with plane/bus/train/etc because...
1. You’ll go places where it would be almost impossible to get to without a car.
2. You’ll get interesting information and personal stories that you will never read from any guide book.
3. You’ll meet other travellers with whom you can hang out or stay in touch with.
4. You can ask any questions you have on your mind.
5. You’ll get the tips about where to go and what to do in your final destinations (mostly for Prague from me).
A unique moment as a tour guide that I will always remember is...
driving from Kutna Hora to Brno and having a "party" in the car. Four different couples who did not know each other and they get along so well. The couple sitting next to me sent a notebook around and everybody wrote down their favourite song. Later, when it was played we were guessing who's favourite song it was. It was so much fun.

Pavlina was a wonderful tour guide. We saw a few things on the trip we would not have seen otherwise. The vehicle was comfortable and the stops were very good. We were given information about the places we stopped without information overload.
The roadtrip from Munich to Prague was great! I am glad I decided to book this tour. We stopped at three different locations and had lunch at a local Czechia restaurant. Our guide Pavlina was super friendly and very knowledgeable about each location. She even when took us to a local bar to get a feel and taste Czechia beer. I will gladly do this trip again.
We took the side trip from Berlin to Prague with our guide Pav. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the locations Pav took us to were fantastic. My husband particularly liked Dresden while I enjoyed Bastei and the small Czech town Pav took us to. Pav gave us some tips on Prague and also helped us when our taxi didn't arrive and she went out of her way to make sure we were safe. I would recommend this way of getting from one location to another while adding in some great stop overs and guided information. Thanks Pav for your help and follow up information and photos.
I recently enjoyed a Czech immersion experience trough a Prague to Vienna tour. First and enjoyed the camaraderie from fellow travelers with whom we shared this experience. Our tour guide also did a great job sharing her knowledge of Czech culture and being multi-lingual was a bonus! Although it took the whole day, we did not see the time go by and in the end, I was left wanting more!! Would recommend this tour!
The bus tour was very comfortable and being in a small tour group is very nice. We got to meet some fellow travelers that were great. Our tour guide was wonderful and knowledgeable. Was nice to see parts of Czechoslovakia and hear about them rather than just travel from point a to b.
My family has not stopped talking about how happy we are that we booked this tour. At first we were just going to take the train, but then we thought, why waste all of that sightseeing time! We booked a private tour and Our guide, Pav, was amazing. She knew so much about the places we visited. She was born to do this! Highly recommend this tour!!!
Pavlina was simply wonderful, we couldn't have asked for a better tour guide or a more excellent adventure. The tour was informative and allowed for a laid back excursion at our own pace. Would highly recommend this sidetrip as a superior alternative to public transit or even private rental car. The cost was well worth the price and actually more affordable than public transportation. We simply can't say thank you enough to Pavlina!
Pavalina, our guide she is amazing. Very punctual and explained about the places, cultural differences and all. We really loved the experience. She gave us the route map, places to visit in Prague. Love to see you soon Pav
The tour was amazing. We managed to visit nice places instead of staying 4 hours straight in the bus. Pavlina was very friendly and informative. She told us a bit the history of Czech Republic.
Please note this tour is conducted in a 9ppl van, so it can get squishy. Tour guide was extremely helpful and good. Too bad it is a literal touch your, bit to be fair, time is always a constraint. Guide was nice to drop us off at our respective accommodation!
Thanks to Pavlina, we have a wonderful tour awesome knowledgeable speaks fluent English Very friendly, helpful and she takes care for all small details
Pavlina was the star of the tour, she went all the way to make us feel so comfy n relax, this is totally different experience from all the other tour. Pavlina is so knowledgeable and easy going, I really enjoyed the Sidetrip, I think it is a very good idea instead of just hop on to another bus to another town. Good going!
El servicio fue excelente, las guías muy amables, los lugares de visita bien seleccionados, lo que permitió que el viaje fuera en partes, por lo mismo menos cansado y sobre todo la oportunidad de conocer interesantes lugares.
Pavlina was very informative and very helpful. The van could have been bigger.
Our driver/tour guide’s name was Pavlina. She is a very safe and competent driver and was very knowledgeable about the places we stopped at along the way. Pavlina’s grandmother who accompanied us, prepared traditional Czech homemade treats which we ate during out coffee stops. I liked the personal touch! Sidetrip is really to be recommended.
The places in the itinerary that Ms Pavlina brought us there were amazing. We love the stunning views at the Saxon Switzerland Natural Park. At Dresden, we got a chance to know see the stunning Palace there. We wished we could have 1 more there but thanks to Ms Pavlina, she could provide us a good introductions to the place. It definitely made the trip worth the vlaue for. Thanks Side trip and Ms Pavlina.👍
Great travel experience, better than flying - Paulina our guide was very knowledgeable and made our trip fun and interesting; Highly recommended.
Pavlina was incredibly friendly and has a great sense of humour. She was very knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited and shared Czech customs with us (the Easter tradition was particularly memorable). Overall, a lovely day and way to travel. We saw more sites than we would have otherwise and throughly enjoyed the company of the other people we shared the journey with.
We were looking for ways to travel from Berlin to Prague and discovered Sidetrip from a Google search, We are glad we chose to take this tour! The van was clean, comfortable and had room for our luggage, Our guide, Pavlina was very attentive and informative. We enjoyed talking with her and the other passengers on the trip. Pick up and drop off were both at very convenient locations for us. We left Berlin at 9 AM and arrived in Prague around 7:30 PM. The pace was just right for us; not too slow and not too hectic. Lunch in Dresden and the walk in "Swiss" Elbe Sandstone park were both pleasant and scenic experiences!
We traveled from Prague to Berlin on August 2, 2019 with Pauline- tour guide. This trip was just perfect. It was just 5 people in a confortable bus. The guide Pauline is the the best, answered all questions and more,. She was so accommodating, friendly, open and professional. Also, very knowledgeable. The stops were very strategic in terms of what to see and timing for needed break and a little of bit of walk:
Pav is adorable. She was punctual, friendly, and had a lot of good information about all the sites we visited. The stops are all neat areas with lots to see. If I had to do it again I'd of booked the trip from Berlin to Prague the next day as Berlin didn't flick my bic "Too much traffic" and the train ride was about the same cost and a lot more stress. Our trip took a bit longer than expected due to Berlin traffic which wasn't Pav's fault and she was a real trooper driving in it. Again, do yourself a favor and book Sidetrip for your return as well. Well worth the money and way less stress.
My family of 4 booked a private trip and it was a great idea and use of our time, instead of being stuck on a train all day. Pavlina was fun, friendly, informative and super easy to talk to, she had no problems handling my talkative dad on the whole ride. The trip never seemed to drag on as we were never in the car for too long, and we got to visit 3 different sites along the way. We were promised a 7 seater car but got a 5 seater which was a bit more cramped than we expected, but it was still fine and it didn't detract from the trip at all. Pavlina also gave us a ton of recommendations for things to see and do in Prague, which we really appreciated. We'll definitely take another trip in the future with sidetrip, I think it's a great sightseeing idea.
We booked a tour from Prague to Munich. It was a 10 hours drive including sightseeing. I did not feel spending a lot of time sitting in the car only. We visited couple beautiful places and our tour guide also brought us to a popular hot dog place. Overall experience is great. Highly recommended.
Very knowledgeable guide.
I cannot recommend the Prague to Munich trip enough. It certainly ‘kills 2 birds with 1 stone’ as you are travelling to your destination but stopping at beautiful locations along the way. Our guide, Pavlina, made the transfer fun and relaxing. Perfect personality for the role as tour guide. As there were only 3 of us on the journey, she went above and beyond to drop us at our individual hotels. Would love to use Side Trip Tours again in the future.
The tour guide, Pavlina was very pleasant and explained more about the history of Regensberg, and sites like the bridge there. We ate at a Czech restaurant that was great food to sit outside and enjoy the weather. The castle was worth the walk to it, and the guide even was willing to go and get the van to come and pick us up at the castle. We would travel with this company again as well as tell people to take this way between the two cities. We felt bad we didn't have Czech money to give her a tip, but gave her US dollars to start a fund to go to the United States which is on her bucket list. Thank you Pavlina!
Love the sceneries, especially garden at Lednice Castle, along this one way trip to Bratislava. Pav, our tour guide & driver is so helpful. I learned about Chez Republic. She even dropped us off at our hotel at Bratislava due to late arrival. Worth the money.
