    Fantastic tour that shows a totally different side of the city with a local that has all the inside knowledge. Super flexible and had amazing recommendations. Due to the small group we even did an alternative route with even more exciting things to see. happy to have done this tour.

    For sure much better option than the other tours available here, which focus only on the touristic side of Prague. In the tour I got to see another side of Prague, closer to how locals see their city. I appreciated it as much as I enjoyed it! I removed one star from my review, because I felt a couple of places we visited had pre-arranged relation to the guide, but that's fine I guess for such a touristic city

    Super friendly guide!

    Thomas was very friendly. He even took the time after the tour to give us more tips regarding things to do and places to go to in Prague. The tour itself was interesting as it offered us a chance to see a fuller picture of Prague, a city that is more than those attractions flooded by tourists. I do find some parts of the tour less fun though, the graffiti wall for instance was not so impressive in my humble opinion. I would prefer to check out some statues made by David Cerny. Having said that, I still think that the tour is worth a try! :)
