    We were expecting some more scary stories, but it turned out great anyway. It was very informative, educational, and fun. We did this our first evening in Prague and it was a great and unique way to explore the Old Town and Jewish Quarters which we now have more context and stories around as we explore the city. Our guide was great and answered questions about the city and the stories she was telling. Great time!

    Soso informative! The guide was engaging and very nice and had so many good stories. Not so much as a ghost story tour but still so worth it, definitley legends. Best tour I’ve had in awhile. She had some things to say that were not great about Roma people (g*ps**s) but I know that is a common sentiment in that area and the awareness about that stuff is not widespread yet. I think the issue is maybe complicated (I don’t know enough about it) but she was still an amazing guide and it was worth it for me. Do this tour!!

    This was a fun way to see the city at night. Our guide Magdalena was good at telling the spooky stories and intriguing legends of the Old Town and Jewish Quarter. It was a fair amount of walking, almost totally flat, but I saw things I wouldn’t have noticed and went to little nooks I wouldn’t have known to visit if not for this tour. It was a nice way to spend the evening.
