We had been turned on to this company by friends that had used the service previously, and are we glad they did! Our tour guide Andrea was professional in every way. She discussed with us first what our interests were, and off we went! We saw sections of Prague we would have never found on our own, and her knowledge of the city's places and history was extradordinary. It was also fun - we made a quick midmorning stop for a drink and pastries off the beaten path that was truly delicious, with the best hot chocolate I have had in my life.
Besides sharing amazing Czech history, sites and views, Andrea gave us good practical advice - a good spot to exchange money, excellent restaurant suggestions, best spots to find garnet jewelry (not the tourist places everywhere), which type of boat service to seek out for a river tour, and suggestions on how to best structure the rest of our time there. She even marked up the tour map for us with each of her suggestions.
Andrea was also a treat to meet as a person, as she responded kindly and thoughtfully to our questions about life in the country under Soviet rule and after. As a Czech, she wanted us to know the significance of places of St. Wencelas Square and the artist Alfons Mucha. We later visited the Communist Museum at her suggestion.
We also used this service for our return taxi to the airport. The driver was prompt, spoke English and very professional. We were impressed with the spacious Czech made sedan that was used. Having been warned by other travelers about poor taxi experiences (even robbings!) in Prague, we felt fortunate to be in safe and secure hands.
Andrea's tour made us feel like it was the best way to see Prague, especially when we saw other groups of 40 or so following someone with a raised umbrella to identify the tour guide. There is no comparison! Andrea is an excellent guide, and we felt lucky to connect with someone so kind and knowledgable, as well as proud to share her Czech heritage. I highly reccomend this company to anyone visiting Prague!!
