Fantastic experience.

We had opted for a bike tour of 2 × 2 1/2 hours. In the morning we visited the city center with our guide Francesco. We struggled through the different parts of the city with the bikes. The trip is a tough trip with a lot of slopes. So I recommend choosing an E-bike. I estimate there is at least a 14% incline in some places. The bikes were great. Effortlessly up the hills. Our guide explained everything very well during the many stops. Very fascinating explanation and countless views. The system with the earphones where he could give us information during the ride was also perfect. As far as Francesco is concerned, I can only say 'top'. In very clear English, nothing was too much for him. In the afternoon we chose an alternative route. He took us to the different suburbs of Prague as we cycled through multiple parks. In short, a great day with an excellent guide. A 6-person group of friends from Belgium.

Compact tour with a focus on Prague Castle

The pick-up from the hotel was announced by email the day before. We found this non-binding additional service good. The trip goes by minibus to the most important sights. On the way, our guide Jana had time to explain this and that in detail due to the heavy traffic. Jana shone as an insider and spoke German very well. After about 1.5 hours we went to the castle. There about 1 hour to the river with the most important information. No time for extensive sightseeing. You should plan a whole day at the castle for this. Finally, another 1 half hour on the Old Town Square. Recommendable!

Our guide Migel guided us safely through Prague. He was full of stories about the city and the Czech people. The pace was good, everyone can join ... Highly recommended

Very interesting tour, the bus or microbus takes you close to the castle, but the rest of the tour is walking, what was a little too much for some participants.

Very well ! Friendly and funny guide, we had a good time
