The tour was very good, it was possible to see several beautiful places in Prague. Our guide, Sebastian, was very helpful, polite and explained numerous aspects of the sites. Although the tour lasted 2 hours, the hour passed very quickly. It's a great experience to do with your friends or family. The company that organizes the tour is also very organized and polite, they gave us a gift at the end of the tour. Congratulations, it was great!

Excellent walking tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable and was friendly and easy to listen to. He picked a good pace and covered a lot of areas and gave us a great deal of information. It was a superb start to our break in Prague.

The tour guide (David) was wonderful, he knew his stuff and was very respectful speaking to us as Jews on a Jewish tour. He provided a lot of context and answered every question comprehensively. I'd definitly recommend him.
