Highlight of our trip to Prague

The e-bikes are of very good quality. You can drive on the steepest roads without any effort and have wonderful views of the city from the hills. Our guide spoke excellent English and a very in-depth knowledge of the city and history. This excursion is highly recommended. There is a tour of tourist Prague and one that also includes the Museum of Communism. This is a must for anyone interested in this sad chapter in history.

Sensational! The fine irony of the Czech people, who suffered the horrors of communism, permeates the entire exhibition. Would go back and strongly recommend the visit

Lenka spoke clearly and knowledgeably about Prague and the history of her country. The pace was good. I highly recommend her.
