Susanna I believe was our guides name. She was amazing!! She brought the city to life with so much zest and showmanship. We were a little embarrassed we didn’t have any cash to tip her after the tour, it seemed like we weren’t the only ones so please take some cash for a tip for after! The guides really put their souls into their role in sharing the city with tourists so it’s great when they are appreciated. This tour was definitely a highlight for us :)

Tour guide was extremely informative and nice. She answered and explained all our questions and made us smile. The underground and dungeon was also very interesting to see. Also loved the details put in the dungeons like the skeletons, torture equipment etc.

Fabulous and historically interesting with a knowledgable friendly guide who was engaging and chatty and very knowledgeable about Prague. The time went really quickly, very informative and highly recommended

Incredible if you can do it for sun set over Prague. We got up there just as the sun had set totally unfortunately but the views are incredible. Definitely worth the cheap price for a ticket.

Overall tour is really good. I specially wants to thank the guide. There team was really good and knowledgeable. They showed us many hidden spots where people doesn't go mostly.
