Let me start by saying the guide, Pavel, was awesome. He was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and I learned a lot of things I wouldn’t have if I had not gone on the tour. HOWEVER, this is not a full tour in the sense that you got to go to the pay to access areas and skip the line, etc. Rather, Pavel told us which tickets to buy and which to skip. This was an enormous disappointment to me because I wanted to see everything and I didn’t get to do that on this tour. Therefore, I had to go back the next morning to see the the whole cathedral and the rest of the sights on my own using my guidebook. I would recommend this tour to you if you don’t care much about getting into the pay to access areas (which I found extremely worth paying for the next day) or if you want to hear things from a native’s perspective, which is what I enjoyed most about this tour.

A very nice tour up into the castle grounds to see some great architecture and learn a lot of history about the city. Great views of the rest of Prague below. Our tour guide Filip did a great job, you can tell he really knows his stuff and enjoys his job.

Lyle (an American in Prague :-) ) gave us a lot of information during this tour. He perfectly scheduled his time so we were able to see the changing of the guards and could have a peep into the cathedral before closing time. Well done !

Our guide, Katerina was very knowledgeable and entertaining. She had a lot of stories about the Croatia and interesting history events. She was able to get us to the best view points to see all the events. Eg changing of the guards

This tour was amazing. Our tour guide was a local, and she was so passionate about sharing her knowledge of the castle. I would highly recommend this tour, you learn so much more going with a guide than exploring on your own.

There were so many people that I had a hard time hearing the information. I also felt the tour was a bit rushed because of the Castle's closing hours.

Ryan was our tour guide and he was absolutely amazing! He was full of all kinds of facts and trivia making it one of the best tours we booked in Europe!!!

I went to this tour starting off at the Rudolfinum and right off the bat I thought that it was disorganized people was running around and changing tour languages left and right including myself. Our tour guide was Klara a young woman that spoke so rapidly that I couldn't keep up with her and she was talking in my native language. After a few blocks everybody was making comments about how fast she was going. Finally we stopped at the beginning of Charles Bridge and she said the bridge is packed I' m putting up my umbrella and we all starting walking and suddenly she disappeared I told my wife stay here and I rushed looking for her to no avail walked the bridge up and down with no luck whatsoever. Ladies and gents this took place in a heart beat. I neve saw her again, We still don't believed what had happened. So we lost that tour
