The most stimulating and informative tour. Vadim is a scholar but he is charming, funny and considerate. You will never look at Prague the same way -- you will see things that you never thought of. This is a must for anyone with an interest in architecture and history. Worth every penny.

This was hands down one of the best tours I've ever taken. Bonita, the tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, friendly, and engaging. She provided fascinating historical as well as artistic and architectural contexts for each of the beautiful buildings and landmarks that we visited. We went inside several of the buildings to view some of the hidden gems and details. I would recommend this tour very highly to anyone interested in the gems from this period that Prague has to offer.
