Our guide Jana Cekanova was very clear and thorough. Very willing to answer all our curiosities and to adapt to the things we wanted to see by explaining details that the printed guide usually omits. Highly recommended, to do on the first day of your stay because the tour offers an overview of the city. But a little high price (€ 90 in three) Maybe it was the high season.

Very competent guide. A bit quiet, you had to listen very concentrated (ambient noise...). The tour was called "Old Town and Jewish Quarter" - it was a lot about the Jewish Quarter and Judaism in general (felt 70%, a little less would have been enough here) and about 30% about Prague's Old Town. The tour didn't take 1.5 hours but 2 hours. So overall good :)

We did this tour on our second day, so we had already seen a lot, which was now part of the tour again (but neither the agency nor the guide can do anything about that). It is an interesting tour of the old town where you are told a lot about the history, from statues with appropriate legends to historical events of several centuries in terms of politics, religion, urban development and architecture. Our guide knew his Prague and Czech history very well. The tour is definitely recommended, especially for those who are unfamiliar with Prague. However, we would recommend it as a way to get started and get your bearings in Prague rather than a tour to end the days in Prague.
