Tattyana was an excellent guide, and the six and a half hour tour was well put together, brief bus tour, walk around and down from castle, stop for coffee in Jewish Quarter, brief walk to boat tour where we could sit and have a drink with the view, then brief walk to restaurant for nice lunch, finishing off with walk through the Old Town Square to Wenceslas Square. And there were only seven of us in the group, which was a real bonus - most groups we saw had 20 or 30 people. Overall, despite some rain, an excellent tour.

Highly recommended! The experience with this Virtual Reality tour in Prague is incredible. I did several tours in Prague but this is the one that really helped to understand how things were at key historical moments in the history of this magical city. The tour took us through the most important places of the city, where we put the VR glasses and saw how that same place was in a specific moment of Czech history. I did the tour with Marco, who was very knowledgeable and fun!

The tour was great. You can learn a lot about the city and get around easily. The director spoke excellent German, English, Czech and Russian (we were a mixed group) and explained everything very well. But you definitely have to be good on foot!

A manageable group of different nations with an individual design of the tour. Asking questions was allowed and even encouraged. None of the usual "driven herds" with plugs in the ear.

It was really nice tour with our super nice tour girl! It is really meet our expectations
