We had an unforgettable experience thanks to the very knowledgable lady city tour guide whose command of the English language and the history of Prague was exceptional. The 3 hour dinner cruise was blissful, very relaxing and included fantastic entertainment whilst cruising along the river Moldau. The dinner choice was versatile and offered an abundance of local dishes. Overall the timing, organisation and helpfulness of the individuals involved was very reassuring and contributed to a seamless experience. Thanks again to everyone involved David & Corinna We would highly recommend this trip.

We really enjoyed this walk. Our guide was Vladimir and he was extremely knowledgeable and made Prague come to life with stories of the past and present. We were taken to off-beat places that are easy to overlook and so we experienced some hidden gems as well as the more obvious tourist attractions. Vladimir provided us with a sheet of tips for dining and viewing which was informed by “inside knowledge” and which was beneficial. We recommend you do this tour at the start of your trip if possible. You will not regret it! Oh! And make sure you wear good walking shoes!! Thankyou Vladimir xx

Tereza the guide was excellent. Her knowledge was extensive, she was extremely friendly and personable, her style of communication was precise and easily understood. She also added personal experiences from her childhood and family which made the narrative come alive. I highly recommend this tour
