    I went on this tour with my partner and because we were the only people in our group we ended up with a private guide. Our guide Petra was amazing. She brought binoculars so we could look at our surroundings while she told us stories. She brought different props to use during the different stories, and she even showed us a spot where she had made up a story of her own for. We saw the most important sights in the Old Town district and Petra pointed out a lot of little details we never would have noticed if we had come by ourselves. Our guide very clearly enjoyed her job, as she could not help herself at the end of the tour and took us to some additional spots and spend 30 minutes extra with us. Rather than just sticking to her tour guide script she showed interest in us on a personal level as well. The perfect start to our 5-day trip to Prague!

    The tour was very nice! Since it was Feburary it was could and dark when we met which gave an extra touch to the scary tour. The story's and legends where very interesting and we saw some little streets. Our guide was very energetic and clearly liked what he was doing he answered questions with a smile and explained everything. Great for people who are not afraid of the dark and ghost story's :)

    We had a very enjoyable and interesting ghost tour with Angela. She was very friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, and she went out of her way to improve the experience for us. She also gave us plenty of tips on the best places to visit in Prague, and recommended that we try becherovka which is great! The experience was a highlight of our trip and we would highly recommend a tour with Angela!
