My Rating
3 star rating: Worth doing

My Review

I almost rated this with 2 stars. The reason I am giving it 3 stars is because all the people working with this organization went out of their way to help us. But we would not recommend this tour. It is too expensive for use for only 1.5 days. We had a hard time finding the start points and wasted a lot of time looking for their office. Being new to the city and walking on foot, it is hard to be at the designated points on time. So, we had to sit and wait for next tour. The walking tour guide spoke so fast and did not look at us as he spoke so we could not hear him half the time. We could barely keep up with him and I am a fast walker.
We took the bus ride all around the city. I enjoyed, but I did not like the auditory guide through head phones. It would click off an like it had a loose wire connection and the conversation between the 2 guides on the tape was distracting and goofy. It did feel good to get an overview of the whole city. We then took the boat ride. The boat was a bit "dilapidated" compared to the other boats parked nearby. Most on-line tour guides do not suggest taking the boat ride in Prague. Apparently Budapest has a better river view.
Next day we met up with this tour to see the Jewish quarter. We had a wonderful experience with this female tour guide. W were disappointed to find the tour only walks through the jewish quarter and does not include the price to see inside the synagogues. Most of what these guides told us we had already read in tour books we had with us. Due to our short stay we missed out on tour to Prague Castle. We had to quickly fit it in on our own time. We did do this with local buses much more quickly and effectively. All in all the workers were very nice but the tour is not worth the price.
