There was only us the two of us and Marc our tour guide on the tour which was very good .Marc was very knowledgable about Prague and even made a diversion to look around the Jewish area of Prague at our request,we felt very at ease with Marc and felt able to ask questions. The 3 hours passed without us noticing.
We would definitely recommend taking this walking tour if you like history.

Great tour

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2013

Another excellent tour!

The tour starts at the Powder Tower and ends at the Castle. 3 hours passed so fast that we have not even noticed. You'd see everything that is important to see and know about in Old Town and New Town, then you'd walk over Charls' bridge, then to the Castle.

Very rich history, various architecture styles well preserved, a lot of interesting facts. All kudos to the guide who was extremely knowledgable and accomodating: if the group expressed an interest to learn more about particular thing or to sneak into a site that was along our path but not necesserely part of the tour, she would not only allow that but provide all detail about the subject in question like that was part of the tour.

Highly recommended!

The Prague tour meeting point is hard to find.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better May 2015

Well it started alright but the guide was in some hurry! Infact after the tour finished she just started walking fastly and next thing I see from distance is the guide running for the bus and she vanished! That was horrible. I was left with no info in the middle of The city! -_-

1 star rating: I do not recommend this February 2015

This tour was terrible the tour guide was very unprofessional. First she wanted to drive us in her private car because she didn't want to walk up the hill! we declined this and wanted to actually experience the walking tour! The woman was talking about lots of things and there was some history in her speech but most often she spoke of illegal drugs, getting her son drunk on absinthe when he was a toddler, and making racist, sexist and bigoted comments about the people surrounding us. We found it highly embarrassing to be walking with her and couldnt wait to leave. There were only three people on the tour and all of us couldn't actually believe this womans conduct. When we finally got up to the castle the tour guide then stopped to eat lunch at a cafe while we waited for her to continue the tour. The tour went an hour and a half over the recommended time because she stopped every 5-10minutes to have a rest as we were walking. We would not recommend this tour.
