We had a walking tour of Jewish Prague with Sylvia, and she was outstanding. She was able to explain the historical background and significance of the sites and also gave us insight on what it was like growing up in Prague under Communist rule. She is very personable and funny. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour and learned a lot, and... More

My husband and I recently had the privilege to go on tours with two knowledgable, superb tour guides set up by Wittmann tours. (Jewish heritage tour, and Terezin) (Helena and both experiences were deeply moving and informative. The guides were open and eager to impart their vast knowledge. i cannot recommend this company highly enough. Thank you, Wittmann!!

Our visit to the Jewish Quarter with Matthew was superb. He was easy to understand and did an excellent job of presenting history with a personal touch. His voice was very easy to listen to and he was very professional as well as personable. The tour makes visiting the neighborhood simple. We were able to bypass the ticket lines as... More

I had pre-booked a tour with Sylvia Wittmann of the Jewish Quarter and could not have been more pleased. Sylvia has a very deep understanding of the history and a personal commitment to bringing the stories to life. I quickly booked two other tours with Wittmann; and both were excellent. The "Czechs Under Nazi and Communist Regimes" --a three hour... More

A great tour through the Jewish Quarter in Prague. Our guide was excellent and the tour included a comprehensive range of diferent aspects from the Jewish Quarter in Prague, not only religion, but also history, culture, architecture, etc. Really worthwhile, it is the right way to visit the Jewish Quarter in Prague and understand it.

Both of our tour guides-- throughout the Jewish Quarter and to Terezin-- were very knowledgable, and were willing to share their personal experiences of Prague. Travelling to Terezin with Susanna greatly enhanced our experience...she showed us both sides of Terezin..the Nazi prison as well as the town of Terezin. I would highly recommend using Whitmann...one stop shopping for touring needs... More

It was our second day in Prague. We arranged for a tour of the Jewish Quaters to visit the old synagogues. Our guide, Mathew, was extremely charming. Most importantly, he was very knowledgable and entertaining. He spoke English very well and was able to answer any question we had. It was a wonderful 3 hour tour. We feel that it... More

Our tour only consisted on visiting Terezin, the concentration camp. We booked the tour with the hotel concierge the day before the tour took place. The meeting point is right in front of the intercontinental hotel, at 10 AM. We were told we could pay in either CZ$ or €. It was about 50€, minus some student discount. The tour... More

This was the real thing. This tour was the best - although not if you read other TA reviews. Maybe it depends on the guide. Ours was English speaking - told us his English name was Matthew. First, some logistics: you have to reserve the tour at least a day in advance. You go to the Website. Reserving requires credit... More
