This was an amazing and thorough tour. We were lucky enough to have no one else sign up for the tour so my husband and I had the wonderful tour guide, Dana, to ourselves. It was really cool that she had pictures of how things used to look and how they have changed over the years to supplement the different sights.

Bad start… start place was wrong - the office had moved. The girl from the office arrived late. That being said, it was a really good experience. Our guide knew really very good history and we saw many nice things. Highly recommend this trip.

It was a great experience all around. Our tour guide was amazing, she told a lot of interesting facts and stories and had a lot of knowledge, we were a really small group, so the atmosphere was nice, would highly recommend

The guide was responsive, it was a small group of 8 and it was a very enjoyable and stress free experience. The highlight was the boat trip, as many new and exciting things could be learned from the water (audio guide).

We had a fantastic guide , who took his time to tell us all about Prague! ... nice boat trip with a snack and a beer! Excellent !!
