Sophia the tour guide is very nice and the driver (didn't get his name) likewise! She was speaking in both English and Spanish during our tour to make sure all of us understood the details of the history of the places we were going to and gave us great advice on wheres and whats of Prague. The ossuary is a unique yet macabre experience that I highly recommended and the church has gorgeous stain glass and facade.

Worth seeing the Cathedral and the Bone chapel. Walking around the town was a nice bonus. If you stop for coffee at try the Bohemian Honey Cake (favorite food I ate on the whole trip). Most day trips are rather long and exhausting, but this one was just the right amount of time.

Sophia was a kind, fun, and intelligent guide. I would recommend this tour to my closest friends if they were staying in Prague for more than a couple days.

Sophie was a great tour guide. Very informative - we learned a lot! Great day overall.

The tour was good. Bus + Guide were well and coordinating very fine
