Anna was very knowledgeable and engaging. The tour was well organised and executed. No waiting at the entrance of key attractions in the Prague castle. Recommend highly the more personable, small group tour format.

Great view of Prague from the water. A quick trip on the boat. I recommend the early tour while it is still daylight and checkin early so you can get a good seat.

Well organised - WiFi was hard to access - so could not access the English guide. The views were astonishing though and service was excellent

The guide was wonderful, very well informed and gave us significant information.

Great place to visit, lots to see, guide explained everything very well
