excellent guide, educated, seeks to converse in languages and speak what he knows about his country. The tour was very good, we didn't just stay inside the minibus, we walked through the parks and saw the monuments, which then you know where to go back, if you want. very good indeed.

Started a little late but the knowledge of the guide made up for it. She was born here and her presentation of historical facts and stories was light years ahead of our other tour guide.

Excellent city tour with a great bus for 10 people and a great city guide with knowledge of history, now and great focuses, with an excellent presentation in German!

It was a very nice experience, with a very friendly guide. We were lucky that it was a private tour for us.

The guide and driver excellent. The visit to Prague very short. Everything interesting and exciting
