This tour is a very nice introduction to old quarters of Prague. It was easy but at the same time very informative and gave us a lot of points to explore to a more depth. Exactly what I expected from an introduction tour of a new city. The guide, Vojtěch Duřt was very knowledgeable and friendly, answered so many questions and took us to small streets that otherwise we would miss out or pass by without knowing an amazing history behind

Our guide, Veronika, is very knowledgeable. She was excellent in pointing out many unique items to us both physically and with her words. She spoke loudly and clearly for all of us to hear her, 10 total and I’m deaf. She took a lot of pride in her job and country, answering questions for us all. Highly recommend a tour with her.

Martina, our tour guide was so knowledgeable about the history and answered all our questions, I would highly recommend this tour - you can learn so much about the history of the Jewish community in Prague.

Guide was very knowledgeable and it was a very interesting, insightful tour. Well worth the money

Our guide was informative, at times hilarious, and at all times interesting.
