“I just come back from an absolutely cracking stag do in Brno, it really was a brilliant weekend.
I did have some reservations pre-stag but soon realised I was worrying about nothing.
Silvia met us at the airport and had maps of Brno, gave us some info about pick up times and what the plans was for the evening pub crawl.
The private transfer coach was quite luxurious and we actually had the same coach and driver for the whole weekend.
The hotel was clean, presentable, in a great location, quiet, friendly staff, breakfast was unique (Czech continental buffet) which included a rather odd hot dog style meat, but very impressive spread all the same. We had 5 rooms in our own wing of the hotel, single beds so didn't have to share doubles.
Pub crawl was good, Silvia joined us for the 5 pubs and gave us some advice on places to go afterwards, clubs, pubs and strip clubs which where not like anywhere else, it didn't feel seedy and the 'dancers' didn't constantly hassle you to buy them drinks or have private dances.
Activities where Shooting Plus and Karting. Shooting plus was the only negative I can think of from the whole weekend, and this is mainly down to the fact we didn't get all the guns we where expecting nor the number of bullets we where expected, nor the free round of beers afterwards, although the location didn't really have any facilities to provide us with a free beer, unless Silvia produced some cans from her bag.
But we got to shoot a Dessert Eagle, pump action shotgun, .357 magnum revolver and a Scorpion rifle that had red dot lazer sight.
We didn't get the M16 Sub machine gun and about 10 bullets less than expected.
The second negative was that the group (15) had to be split into 4 groups to go into the range area. This meant it wasn't a group activity and the others had to sit and wait outside for their turn.
I'm being a little picky, but the professional instruction was very basic, 'you put bullet here, you hold here, you click here' and being asked if we knew how to use a Scorpion after we told the guy we hadn't used a revolver was comedy.
We did get to keep out targets and where able to compare hits with the rest of the stags afterwards.
Overall I think the Shooting was overpriced and would have preferred to spend the money on another activity.
The second activity was the indoor karting which was 100% better than the shooting and 100% fun, it was brilliant.
We where split into 2 groups and had private race time on track for 15 minutes, where our lap times where timed and clocked. Then the second group raced... we then had time for lunch before we had our second races.. we decided to put the fastest drivers in one group and the slowest drivers in the last race.... So overall we had 30 minutes of track time which doesn't seem a lot but it was more than enough.
The track was only 26 seconds long and after 15 minutes your whole body and arse in particularly are hurting so much that you need the rest. A few of the guys had to retire early as they're bodies hurt.
Regardless of the aches and pains this was a great stag experience and would defo recommend.
After transferring back to the hotel, we had some time to chill out before heading out again.
The drink prices are still cheap, 85p for a large tanker style beer, you get served at the table so no need to get whips going or taking it in turns to queue at the bar. The service is quick and you pay at the end before leaving.
Brno is very much a hidden gem... we only came across 2 other stag do's the whole weekend, this was was very pleasant and I'm glad it wasn't overrun with stags.
We respected the locals and the bars we drank in and in return we where not treated like a stereotypical stag do looking to cause mayhem.
Overall, big thumbs up and fully recommend as a potential stag destination.”
