I had a great experience with the tour and the tour guide. I believe it’s worth what you pay for. The time is just perfect and you get to see a lot of the city too. The meeting point is not hard to find at all and the guides are very kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend to get this tour specially if you’re staying in Prague for day or two. Also the walking is not bad at all, it’s very doable.
