    Ivana was very nice, a trip to a different Prague between myths and legends. Four stars only because we thought it was a tour that explained the strange statues scattered around the city, and took us underground or something similar. If you are looking for stories of terror this is not the right tour, but it is fun!

    We were very enthusiastic about our companion through the night. We were very lucky to really be alone with her and therefore it was a very private tour. Absolutely great and recommended. Also as a tip, tours over the day are usually very large and rather bland. The most important things were shown here, packed into beautiful stories and we took a lot of knowledge with us. Absolutely to recommend.

    I did the tour with a friend and we both liked the relaxed atmosphere of a small group. And it’s was great to hear stories you do not hear during regular touristic tours through the city. And we did learn not only about some legends of Prague but as well some interesting facts about famous people and buildings. Would do it again.
