What a comprehensive tour this was! Even with only 6 hours, we packed so much into the day it was great! We walked all over The old and new cities, saw the Jewish Quarter, had an excellent traditional Czech lunch, rode the tram to Prague Castle, saw the Castle grounds as well as the cathedral, then had a lovely boat ride on the Vltava! We learned so much about Prague in a relatively short time. We especially loved the 11am start time as we were able to take our time in the morning without having to rush to an early morning tour start.
Filip, our guide, had an uphill battle, as I had 10 college students who'd already toured the Jewish Museum and had lunch on a very warm day, before we met for this tour. On the onset, students were lethargic and difficult to engage, but by the end of the tour, Filip had managed to pull everyone in to Kafka's life and work. I strongly recommend to individuals and small groups interested in the literary master. Thanks, Filip!
Our local guide Tom, was excellent! He was able to not just give us a background of Franz Kafka, but also explain his relationship to Prague and the Czechs and what the history and political landscape was at the time vs. today. We were lucky that day to get a private tour from him, which gave us a great first glimpse of Prague. Would recommend this to everyone especially for Franz Kafka fans.
I highly recommend this tour for all who are interested in a deeper dive into the history of Prague and Kafka's life there. The guide is very knowledgeable and does very well embedding Kafka in the Prague of his time. Thank you for this inspiring and informative experience!
Dana was a great guide and was very knowledgeable about the city! I ended up having a private tour and she made it very enjoyable. She was fun to spend time with and cared about what I wanted to get out of the tour. Would definitely recommend!!
