Exciting

Listening to our guide, we had the impression of going back in time to the communist era. Small museum to do absolutely with Dan (our guide) excellent knowledge of the subject in perfect French. Thank you very much for these 3 hours spent.

Not well organized by Getyourguide. Embarrassing.

This was the very worst and expensive tour I have taken. The guide showed up huffing and puffing. Went to wrong place! Then, he had no tickets. We paid well in advance and there as a discussion involving 3 museum people that took 10-15 minutes. Finally, they let us in and made it look like they were doing us a favor. Midway through our tour, and the museum was very informative, the museum director came along to tell us that the tour company had been called. Had never paid the museum but they will, so go ahead and finish the tour! I will not use getyourguide again.

Excellent Guide

Lenka spoke clearly and knowledgeably about Prague and the history of her country. The pace was good. I highly recommend her.
