Our guide Madam Jojo has a great and very entertaining wealth of experience and knowledge about Prague which made the tour very interesting. Madam Jojo has such a funny and heartfelt way of talking about historical events and small details in the streets that the two hours just flew by. The tour is highly recommended for those who don't want a classic run-of-the-mill tour along the mainstream places.

Sebastian was awesome and clearly takes pride in making sure his guests are entertained, educated and never bored. He is knowledgeable of the city and also safety conscious. Friendly and professional, I highly recommend anyone who wants a closer look at the city from a local guide to sign up for a scooter tour.
