    A big thank you for Manuel our tour guide! We had a great time learning about the legends of Prague and also the history! Even running into a few “ghosts” on the way. Everyone involved was super enthusiastic and made sure we had a great time with this immersive-legends coming to life-tour. Highly recommended if you want to learn more about Prague in a more exciting and spooky way!

    The ghosts and legends tour started at the Charles Bridge and was like a small city tour through the old town. Instead of being told blunt facts about buildings, everything here was connected with legends and sagas about the city of Prague. It was really very interesting and our guide was very knowledgeable about everything in the city and you could always ask questions along the way!

    Not a real real ghost tour, but very interesting and nice to hear all the stories about the history of the city, a tip is to do this tour at the beginning of your holiday because if you know the history of the buildings you would like to visit inside but that is only possible during the day and we went home the next day so we didn't have time for that anymore that was a shame.
