Our local guide Tom, was excellent! He was able to not just give us a background of Franz Kafka, but also explain his relationship to Prague and the Czechs and what the history and political landscape was at the time vs. today. We were lucky that day to get a private tour from him, which gave us a great first glimpse of Prague. Would recommend this to everyone especially for Franz Kafka fans.

A wonderful, informative experience. Filip was engaging.

Filip, our guide, had an uphill battle, as I had 10 college students who'd already toured the Jewish Museum and had lunch on a very warm day, before we met for this tour. On the onset, students were lethargic and difficult to engage, but by the end of the tour, Filip had managed to pull everyone in to Kafka's life and work. I strongly recommend to individuals and small groups interested in the literary master. Thanks, Filip!

Extremely interesting and informative tour!

Our guide has a University degree in literature and has spent many years studying Kafka’s life and writings as well as the history of Prague. We also stopped for a coffee which was included and was a nice chance to rest and to talk about Kafka. This is a must tour for any Kafka fan. It was truly excellent.
