This was an amazing and thorough tour. We were lucky enough to have no one else sign up for the tour so my husband and I had the wonderful tour guide, Dana, to ourselves. It was really cool that she had pictures of how things used to look and how they have changed over the years to supplement the different sights.

We were lucky enough to have a private tour, as we were the only ones booked on it!! Our guide, Aneta, was great. She was honest, friendly, informative and took good care of us. Would highly recommend this tour as it gives a good overview of the beautiful city of Prague. The canal trip proved insightful as they mentioned the funicular up to Petrin Tower. So, this is where we spent the following day taking in the sites and visiting the Observatory.

Tomas was a very good guide. Easy going, smart, knowledgeable, considerate. We had a good experience on the boat (better than the bigger boats); great outer castle tour and very good info and conversations about the area, the castle and some general things. Tomas encouraged us to ask ‘anything,’ which we appreciated. Would highly recommend this personal touch versus the audio versions of learning. We had 1 language, not 8-10 to listen to before we continued hearing about the area. And, it was nice having g a small group (under 6) vs the larger crowd/group. Plus, it was very affordable! Would highly recommend.
