Very fun and informative experience. Make sure you have good shoes (you will be walking on very uneven cobblestones). Also, we got a little lost trying to find the pickup spot (Google maps got us a bit turned around, and we went around the corner). It's right IN old town square in front of the church. Don't go around the corner. Tour guide was great!

We had a wonderful day and tour from Prague to Kutna Hora in July 2022. We booked online in Prague and met up at the meeting point next day. Everything ran smoothly. The sites we visited were interesting and we had a great guide named Sarah. Thanks again for this experience.
