“Great way to plunge in”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

We were there October 28 and had booked the Art Nouveau tour with George Thompson. What a great city, tour, and guide! George was early, we headed out, and enjoyed every moment of the walk. He's informed. personable, and flexible. The sights are mind boggling, and his background information and explanations bring the city to life. I highly recommend this company, and George in particular.

“Best Introduction to Prague!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

While we don’t typically book tours when exploring a city, we connected with Insight Prague on the recommendation of a friend -- and are very glad we did! We took two different tours; we had a guide all to ourselves one morning, and with one other couple the next day. The tours helped us see Prague with a completely different set of eyes. Booking by e-mail was absolutely painless. Both our guides (George for the introductory tour and Bonita for the Art Nouveau and Cubist Architecture walk) were fantastic: broadly knowledgeable about the city, its history, culture, art, architecture and politics - and truly enthusiastic about sharing it with us. Each tour ended in an impromptu lunche, where we all lingered for another couple hours in conversation. The tours took us through streets we would never have found and into building interiors we would have missed entirely. There is only so much you can get from guide books and on-line research. We absolutely recommend Insight as a great way to begin understanding and appreciating Prague.

“Insight Prague Art Nouveau tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We booked the Insight Prague tour focused on the fabulous Art Nouveau architecture in the city. Our guide, George Thompson, was very personable, enthusiastic and knowledgeable about the subject, and a great communicator. He customized the walking tour to our interests and background - since I was a new visitor to Prague, he added a lot on history and culture beyond the early-20th-Century architecture. Booking was a breeze, even on very short notice. We really enjoyed this experience and look forward to more Insight Prague tours in the future!

“Insight Prague - great walking tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We had a couple days in Prague before meeting our cycling group and decided to book a tour. Insight was recommended to us and after checking out their website, we decided to book a tour with them. What a great experience! Booking the tour through their website was a breeze and they were very responsive. The tour is a walking tour (my first) and it won't be my last. My friend and I had Vadim Erent as our tour guide and what a fantastic experience. We got a birds eye view of the area with great explanations of the history of the area. The tour was modified to our interests and because we were a small group, we could hear everything, compared to other tours which are so crowded it's hard to hear the guide. I would recommend them to anyone who want to get a good introduction to Prague. They have multiple tours if you have specific interest or a more general tour which it what we wanted. Vad also gave us recommendation on things we could do on our own to include places to eat. Insight is a class act!

“Fantastic introduction to Prague: Start with Insight Prague”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

My sister and I visited Prague in August and were happy to have a referral from a friend to Insight Prague. Our tour was arranged with George Thompson and we were both thrilled with our tour. We had communicated to George our interest in history and architecture and he took us to many magnificent places and all along the way told us of Czech history and most importantly the history of Prague. We visited many of the sites you would expect in the old town and Jewish quarter, but also many out of the way places that we would never have found on our own. By the end of the trip we had learned so much. George was great company for the afternoon and was happy to answer our questions and flexible enough to divert from his planned route to show us something that he knew we would be interested in. It was a fantastic afternoon that thoroughly enhanced our appreciation of Prague. We can't wait to visit again!
