Ratings tour

“Rene displayed a wealth of information about the history of Prague while simultaneously entertaining our group with excellent humor and genuine friendliness. I highly recommend this tour not only if you are a history and/or an architectural buff, but if you are interested in spending an afternoon undertaking a beautiful walk and pleasant company.”

“My guide Rene was fantastic! I cannot compliment him enough — I love history, and am usually nervous asking too detailed of questions to guides. Rene. Knew. Everything. And I learned so much, especially given that it wasn't the 3-4 hours (!!) that other tours sometimes require. If you take one tour of the castle, then this is the one I'd recommend! If you have extra hours, you can explore the nooks and crannies of the castle complex yourself — that's how I like my tours to be :)”

“Rene is amazing and truly a “castle master”, he has so much knowledge and he makes it come alive with his delivery! We absolutely recommend this, it is probably the best tour we have ever taken - well paced, entertaining and informative. It was completely worth the money and we enjoyed our day beyond measure.”
