The starting point is Freedom Square
Sightseeing tours in Brno are intended for those who want to get to know the city from a perspective other than walking and will welcome being taken to new experiences in a comfortable minibus. Guided tours are provided by members of the Association of Tourist Guides of the Czech Republic, and the starting point is Freedom Square. Fans of architecture, history, and other interesting areas, which are gradually added by TIC (Tourist Information Centre) BRNO depending on current events and demand, will find something to enjoy. Another great advantage is that you can see so many things that you would have spent a whole weekend exploring on foot during one ride.
Sightseeing tours are mainly in Czech, but audio guides are available. Please inquire about the possibility of an audio guide. However, it is always provided with the “Famous Villas” ride.
This sightseeing route is marked by four famous villas. They were all built in the first third of the 20th century, and yet they are so different: the Art Nouveau Löw-Beer Villa (1904), the Jurkovič Villa (1906), the modernist Stiassni Villa (1929) and the functionalist Tugendhat Villa (1930). Compare them in a two-hour drive. You will be surprised!
