I missed my early-morning flight from Copenhagen to Prague. Truth is, I slept in, and the 5:08 a.m. train to Copenhagen airport ran without me. No problem. My Tauck “Danube Reflections” trip would not begin in earnest until tomorrow. If I did not get there until late (the next nonstop flight would put me in Prague after 9 p.m.), I would only miss a welcome reception at the InterContinental Prague as well as dinner.
When I arrived at 9:30 p.m., however, I had a surprise waiting for me. Tauck’s tour directors had thoughtfully provided vouchers for me: one for a drink at Duke’s Bar and the other, valued at about 70 euros, for dinner or room service. Plus, a complimentary bottle of water and a miniature Bábovka Cake (Bundt Cake) awaited me in my hotel room. Already, I am impressed with Tauck’s attention to detail.
I have an early start tomorrow, so I’ll keep this post short. I begin my day with breakfast, from 6:30 a.m., and then choose from one of two tours: a Gardens and Castles tour with local guides through the Lesser Old Town; or a Kafka and Jewish History tour, also with local guides and including a stroll on the iconic Charles Bridge and a visit to the Franz Kafka Museum. Walking tours that each span about three hours, both tours appeal to me. I’ll make my decision after the first cup of coffee tomorrow morning. Good night.
