la visita al quartiere ebraico è qualcosa di imprescindibile quando si è a Praga. molto bello il cimitero e la sinagoga Pinkas. guida ottima, introduzione perfetta e il valore aggiunto è che doveva essere in inglese invece, dato il gruppo composto da soli italiani, è stata in italiano. ottimo servizio veramente!

A great evening from beginning to the end. Picked up from hotel, short tour in minibus, which we enjoyed then taken to the boat, which was very modern. The food was delicious, the entertainment was brilliant, staff friendly. I would highly recommend. Great value for money.

The tour was led by Jim, who made the whole thing an unforgettable experience with his friendly manner. You see completely different corners of the old town that you might never have seen. Great stories, also with historical background knowledge. Gladly again!

Excellent performance. Thoroughly delightful. The soprano was bravissima - highly professional. I would go again in a second.

Really good idea to buy tickets in advance. A fantastically beautiful experience to see the vitus cathedral from the inside.
