Fantastic tour that shows a totally different side of the city with a local that has all the inside knowledge. Super flexible and had amazing recommendations. Due to the small group we even did an alternative route with even more exciting things to see. happy to have done this tour.

For sure much better option than the other tours available here, which focus only on the touristic side of Prague. In the tour I got to see another side of Prague, closer to how locals see their city. I appreciated it as much as I enjoyed it! I removed one star from my review, because I felt a couple of places we visited had pre-arranged relation to the guide, but that's fine I guess for such a touristic city

It was a shame that there were 2 things I would have liked to visit: the art center DOX and the Institute of cryptoanarchy ... overall, the time was very tight and we didn't have much time at the individual spots and had to rush through everywhere - that but may also be due to the day of the tour (December 31st), because there was a lot of rush and the group had to be split! Overall, however, it was super interesting and personable and a great alternative to the usual tourist hotspots - keep it up !!!!
