5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2017

Thanks to Vadim for an informative and interesting tour. It covered historical, religious, cultural and architectural aspects of Prague which was a lot of information for the 3 hour tour. However I found it was conducted at a relaxed pace and personalised to my interests. Although the cost of the tour could be considered to be a bit more than others, I thought it was very good value compared to the less personal aspects of larger group tours. I have no hesitation in recommending this tour!

We were surprised to find out that we were the only 2 on this tour, although it just worked out that way. Our guide was actually the owner of the tour company and was American so of course there was no language barrier. We started in Old Town and made our way to New Town. Our guide touched on religious issues Counter-Reformation and a lot about the history of the Czech people and why the city grew the way that it did.

We focused a bit more than my wife and I would have liked on 20th century buildings. As a matter of fact, we went into only one building that was not a 20th century building. We would have appreciated more of the more distant history of the city. Our guide was pretty free with her opinions on American politic. This was fine with me, but some might find this a bit much.

All in all though, I would recommend this tour as it is very informative and personal.
