Our tour guide was so friendly and had a real zest and passion for her job/the history/the stories of ancient Prague. We very much enjoyed our stroll through the old city and would highly recommend this as an insight into getting your whereabouts and knowledge of the darkest side to Prague ….

Absolutely a MUST-DO while in Prague! You get part history, part story telling of multiple buildings in Prague and it’s fun for all ages. Our guide (Lana I believe) was very knowledgeable and a very talented storyteller, she was just captivating in her black dress and with black flowers in her hair and her lit oil lamp. It added even more atmosphere to the stories. Just amazing! I was sad it was only 2 hours long; I could have continued it all night! Definitely book a ghost story tour while in Prague and I recommend you do it in the evening to enhance the chill factor.

The guide, the tour and the content were all fantastic! I went with my boyfriend on the first evening of my trip and it really didn’t disappoint. The walking tour was awesome and we learnt lots of historic facts, we got our bearings of the surroundings too. The guide took us to old town square and down small alleys with quirky stories and tourist tips along the way. We really got our money’s worth and I’d recommend this to anyone and everyone.
