Great exposure to Prague and a good suggestion for the first day to serve as a basis for future items you can circle back to in subsequent days. FYI that, like much of Europe, it is a lot of walking on cobblestones and brick. A great tour overall though.

My tour with Danu was amazing . She went over an above to ensure I experience the most of what Prague had to offer . She has a great knowledge of European history. Thank you

From start to finish very informative, helpful and friendly. Your at a very steady pace for all to keep up. Personalised to suit everyone.

Highly recommend. It was very informative, the people were nice, and very punctual on the transportation.

there was a lot of walking but as it was down hill it is mangable
