Rene has been an awesome guide! Very friendly, funny and when it comes to knowing details regarding many facts that happened throughout the ages since medieval era until modern days, is able to provide you with many interesting and not so popular ones. I definitely recommend him and eventually ask for him if you plan on having a tour of the undergrounds of the astronomical clock in Prague's main square as well as of the Prince Charles Bridge and surroundings. Of course he might be available also for different tours also outside the city of Prague. Thank you so much Rene for the awesome time you shared with me and I will definitely meet you again when I come back to prague! Ahoj!

We did this on our second day in prauge, which was quite nice, because you get an overall understanding of the city and its history. So its a nice guide / trip to start with. The underground is really worth visiting, and the guides make you understand what you're looking at, and what was used for, back in the days. The trip and the guides were really great, and if you have any questions, about the city the guides will help. The only minus, was that the given address for the meeting point was wrong, so we had a bit of a trouble finding it. But we can definitely recommend the tour.
