    "Very good trip "

    Horrid |
    "After leaving Prague, we were told that we had to board buses due to construction for part of the track. Train staff did not speak English and we were explained this by another passenger. We boarded buses from 1970, had to get off and reboard another train, then switch cars based on our final destination. Extremely uncomfortable, confusing, and we probably should've been told this before we even left. Lugging a 50lb suitcase on 3 different trains and a bus was not in my travel plans. I would've rented a car if I knew this would happen. "
