The communication with this company was awesome. When we arrived to Prague it was POURING rain. The company offered for us to go in the rain OR reschedule, which we did. Our guide was laid back, kind and super informative! We have three kids ages 11, 13 and 15. They loved it. Highly 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.

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

Despite extreme rain conditions, we had a fantastic time with an excellent tour guide Sebastian. Highly recommended.

Excellent tour with Sebastian. Saw all the great sights and he took excellent pictures of us.
