Very helpful people, they even helped us change the tour we booked because it was very hard for us. And they were right! The map for the self guided tour worked perfectly. They were ready to communicate immediately during the tour which made us feel really safe at all times. They also gave us the bike that was suitable for each group member’s needs. A must experience for everyone in Prague. Thank you very much for everything!
