Liebes Get your guide team, vielen Dank für Alles! We couldn‘t make it to a tour for Prag Altstadt + Jüdisches Viertel we booked on sunday and they just allowed us to come on monday (16.12). The nice lady from Prague, (with sunglasses and long black hair, we don‘t remember her name), was very interesting and on point. Everything was perfectly organised, we really had fun and learned something!

A very interesting tour

The topic of the tour was really interesting but I do believe that the successful result was due to our excellent guide Eliska Ludvova. She took us around and gave us lots of info about the spots we were visiting. She is also really friendly and this is not a secondary aspect! Thank you

It was an individual tour, we were 6 people. We recommend!

Andrea made the tour very interesting and vivid - a good mix of historical data and up-to-date information. We got answers to our questions and, at our request, visited places that weren't crowded with tourists. The tour was on Saturday - so NO visit to the Jewish cemetery, unfortunately that was not clearly stated in the description.
