    Petra was amazing, she patiently walked us through the tour and explained every little detail, she was a delight all around. The tour itself was magical, Prague being the gothic masterpiece it is! A must if you want to feel the ethereal vibe in its essence!

    A big thank you for Manuel our tour guide! We had a great time learning about the legends of Prague and also the history! Even running into a few “ghosts” on the way. Everyone involved was super enthusiastic and made sure we had a great time with this immersive-legends coming to life-tour. Highly recommended if you want to learn more about Prague in a more exciting and spooky way!

    I was the only one who signed up for my timeslot, so I ended up having a wonderful private tour by Dana. She was absolutely lovely and made the experience so special with her passion for history. I learned a lot about Prague's most famous historical landmarks, the culture, and of course, its many local legends. All in all, I highly recommend the tour as you learn so many details about the city that you would likely never find out on your own!
