the tour was great! the other people didn’t show up, so ended up having my own private tour. the tour guide was very friendly and was able to tell me a lot about the city. he was also able to answer my questions (in good english). 10/10 would recommend :))

Thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Tomasz. He showed us spots in old town that we have easily missed and provided an interesting narrative on the legends around town as well as the culture in Prague.

Skilled and charismatic tour guides as Charles are hard to find. His ability to keep the group entertained is remarkable, it's almost like we could feel the suspense in the air.

A perfect blend of bus, walk, and boat trip. Just long enough spent at all the sites and sufficient information to spark your interest.

Super nice guide gladly again. It was super exciting too
