The tour was very well organized and very exciting. I was the only registered participant and the tour took place anyway. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. The whole tour took longer than planned because we also visited the Old New Synagogue (you buy an additional ticket). I am very grateful to my guide for giving me her time to tour the Old New Synagogue. In general she didn't look at the clock and I found that very relaxed. I also recommend visiting the old mikvah by the Pinkas Synagogue. The ticket for the mikveh costs only 50 crowns. You will get another competent tour and enough time for photos. I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in this topic.

Innerhalb von zwei Stunden erhält man einen tollen Einblick und Überblick über die Entwicklung des Prager Zentrums und was Prag international für eine Rolle spielte. Viele der Infos wird man in einem Reiseführer sicher nicht zu lesen bekommen. Der freundliche Guide kennt sich historisch bestens aus (nicht nur mit der Geschichte Prags) und gibt nützliche Tipps für den weiteren Aufenthalt.

That was the best city tour I've ever done. Dagmar is simply fantastic; Not only that she knows EVERYTHING about the Hedge history of Prague and can convey it in an incredibly motivating way, you also get the entire historical background from all of Europe and the Middle East and can understand everything up to the present day. The spark definitely jumps here. Highly Recommended.

The tour through the Jewish districts was impressive and immersed in Jewish history and way of life. My tour guide had guided me through the synagogues with devotion.

A wonderful, highly interesting tour with an extremely personable guide. We highly recommend the tour.
