I was on my bus from Pec pod Snezkou to Prague when I realized I had no plans for the evening. I quickly googled activities in Prague and this tour stood out from all the offered options. Luckily they had availability for the same eve and I could get on the tour with no issues. Payment and booking for fast and straightforward. All the details were followed in the email right at the moment of my payment. I arrived 5mins prior to our walk and was already impressed by how small our group is: just 5 people (me included) + a guide. A quick note about our guide - a young lady Sofia. Intelligent, approachable, and super friendly. While moving between stops we exchanging our stories and the conversation was smooth and pleasant. I really enjoyed walking with her and getting to know her cheerful and lovely personality. So if you (like myself) are limited in time and have to decide between multiple tours, then don't hesitate to book this one and enjoy your evening.

David was an incredible guide and made this experience interesting, funny and very pleasant. His knowledge is extensive and he was sensitive to the participants' needs and interests. This walk covered for me the history of the city and was a memorable experience. Keep in mind there's a lot of walking. Super recommended!
