Absolutely brilliant, came alone and left with friends! Our guide Linton led us through Prague, visiting four unique watering holes that we would have missed as tourists and he also knew how to get the group excited and engaged. Aside from some cool facts about Prague, we visited some of the most authentic pubs in Prague. Places, you would normally not go to simply because you wouldn’t know how to find them. Had a great afternoon and can recommend. Great way to spend the afternoon and explore some hidden gems.

Very insightful tour guide who knows so much history of the region! We hit all the major landmarks, so it was a good starting point for our trip and we could revisit some places on our own in more detail later. it was a lot of walking so we were tired by the end, but great tour all around.

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

The guide guided us through Prague in a very informative manner and gave good tips for various matters (e.g. the best exchange office).

A good overview of the old town and Charles Bridge and the Castle
