An unforgettable guided tour of Prague with a profound Kafka connoisseur. If you weren't a fan of the author before then, you will be afterwards. There is no better way to (re)discover Franz Kafka. The tour makes you want not only to search for clues on site, but also to explore Prague in Kafka's works. Highly Recommended.

our guide spoke impeccable French...while the visit was announced in English. Rich and interesting visit on the life of this author, on life in Josefov, on life in Prague. Our guide is an excellent "pedagogue" in the sense that he has the passion to pass on his knowledge and his love for his city of Prague. I recommend !

Our local guide Tom, was excellent! He was able to not just give us a background of Franz Kafka, but also explain his relationship to Prague and the Czechs and what the history and political landscape was at the time vs. today. We were lucky that day to get a private tour from him, which gave us a great first glimpse of Prague. Would recommend this to everyone especially for Franz Kafka fans.
