The tour guide was very friendly and extremely competent with a very secure knowledge of history, was able to tell all things very clearly and comprehensively. Unfortunately, because of all the enthusiasm, I forgot to tip him. He really deserved that. I feel very enriched in my historical education. My 13 year old son was also very impressed and hung "Karel" on the lips. Thank you very much, Karel!

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable giving us a brief history of the area before the tour. She made sure the group was together before moving on. Also made sure we knew which way to go to get back to the staring point since we didn't take the full 6 hour tour.

Terrible tour

The guide has strong accent and it’s very difficult to understand her. Also her voice is not loud enough and her speaker didn’t work well either. She could’ve kept us more in the shade in the 96 degrees hot day. Her tour was not that interesting and it felt like a waste of money for the tour.
