    Unique Night Tour
    We took a nighttime Alchemy and Mysteries tour with Allen. He was a fantastic guide, very knowledgeable and friendly. This was a very neat way to see Prague at night and hear about some of the more unique aspects of the city. Definitely recommend!

    Cold and windy
    Unfortunately, this tour did not meet expectations! I know Prague quite well, and I was looking forward to learning more about the alchemy which is such an important part of this town's history. Our tour guide, Martin, did not seem particularly passionate about the theme of alchemy and drifted to other aspects of Prague's history. In addition, it is very windy at Prague castle, and on a November evening, it is cold! During the 3 hour tour, my core body temperature went down significantly. At several points in the tour, I had to nudge the tour guide to move us to a more sheltered spot, and I was surprised that he didn't think to do that without my prompting. Prague at night is a stunning experience, but I don't recommend this tour to experience it!

    It was the best tour I took in my 4 days trip to Prague. Thanks to our serious and knowledgeable guide. Also I must admit it was not expensive at all.

    Amazing Stories
    This was a really interesting tour! There was a lot of medieval history that was included, even though the tour wasn't a historical tour. The stories we heard were great and really interesting. It started to rain in the middle of the tour so we found a nice little pub for a while until the worst was over and had a drink. Our tour guide was such a trooper for shouldering on during a pretty mad thunderstorm! She was absolutely lovely and we had a great experience.

    With Martin - a wonderful way to see and learn more about Prague' old town and castle district
    One thing that I think set this tour apart from others I've done is that it went through places like the castle district when they were quiet. Really made the whole thing far more engrossing. Also a good mix of folklore and history. Thanks so much to Martin for the great tour!

    29th Wedding Anniversary Getaway to the city of Prague
    My Husband Philp and I went to Prague for the first time on 26th August - 27th for our 29th Wedding Anniversary. On the transfer from the airport we booked via GETYOUGUIDE a Prague 6 hour City Tour including Cruise and Lunch. We went along as instructed on the Sunday at our designated meeting place and we had ALLEN as our guide for the day. I have to say he was a wonderful, informative and friendly host / guide. He knew his history of Prague and anything else you cared to quiz him on. He talked and walked us through the length and breath of Prague and I'm so grateful we got him. I have to recommend to all you travellers this tour guide experience as we would never have covered the half of what we done that day. We paid £133.98 sterling and this for two of us was tremendous value for money considering we got a top quality lunch with 1 x wine and beer plus on the cruise you got sweet treats and another beer/tea/coffee/soft drinks. I would truly recommend this trip and ALLEN as he was amazing.

    Comprehensive & informative Tour with Martin
    Our guide Martin was verz knowledgeable and took our needs/requests into account. The tour is great to have background information about pragues history and see all the "important" landmarks. It is great that it is at night so the sights are almost empty and it is not too hot to walk. Our guide also gave us a lot of additional information. Thank you!

    See Castle by night
    A fun tour that covers a lot of ground! Great way to see the city and Prague castle by night. Our tour guide was a bit hard to pay attention to, as he was soft spoken, but still knowledgable. Would recommend!

    Great tour!
    It was a great tour! Our guide, Markus was very passionate about the subject and he had a vast knowledge not only about alchemy and astrology, but also of interesting historical facts. We really enjoyed the the tour, the hidden gems that he showed us, the walk and the talk.

We expected much more from a night city tour. This tour is more like a fantasies and fairy tales about laser beam goats rather than true history of the city. A lot of walking but not that much history… would recommend if you like funny stories or you are under 12 years. The guide was a great guy. More than half people from different countries who went on this tour left it in the middle.. definately a tourist trap. I give 3/5 because of the guide. The tour is worth 0/5. The value is definately not a 16 euros, would consider going maybe for 6…

Thank you for your feedback. The tour is not focused on history, this is true, and is not meant to be. But we regret you did not have a good time.

We were very excited about this walking tour, but left slightly disappointed, perhaps because of misplaced expectations. The ghost stories were all "old legends" of Prague. We were expecting more "ghouly/spooky" stories. Our guide Daniel was a great storyteller but the stories felt quite rehearsed. We started the tour late (some mix-up that the guide apologized for). Overall, I would recommend a free walking tour of the old town instead before spending money on this tour, the stops are similar and the cost is cheaper.

Thank you for your opinion. All our stories are based on genuine legends told by people through centuries, none of them are made up by us or our guides. We understand that not everyone has the same taste, however, our tours are widely enjoyed by our customers and we think that the performance of our guides and the ghost stories themselves are what make our tour stand out from the free walking tours. Nonetheless, thank you for your review and we hope you enjoyed your stay in Prague! :)

We purchased tickets to the Ghosts & Legends of Old Town Tour and this tour certainly didn’t disappoint! Unfortunately we arrived around 20 minutes late to the tour and the staff was really understanding, they even closed the store to led us to the tour which had already started. David is a great tour guide and a true asset to the company, he is full of knowledge and humour. I’d recommend the tour to anyone looking for a unique experience while visiting Prague.

We had an amazing time with our guide, Tom. He was a really good storyteller and we also really appreciated the little "culture crash course" he gave at the end, introducing fun facts about the country, people and culture. Tom is very knowledgeable and an excellent guide. We highly recommend this tour to anyone looking to explore the less known streets of Prague and learn some chilling stories and legends!

We wanted to do something unique in Prague so we booked the Ghost tour with David. He is the perfect guy for telling those spooky stories about ghosts and haunted houses, you will definitely can get some goosebumps. The narrative is based on true story from the old times. We learned a lot about Prague’s dark history and had a great time together with the group. You better keep your eyes open because you might see something strange in those windows of the old buildings. Definitely recommend David. He is the best story teller.

Due to Corona times my son and me were the only guests for that tour. In a highly humorous way he told us stories and gave us lots of information to the historical background. David was a fantastic guide! Highly recommendable! Thanks again for a very nice evening!

We booked the Ghosts and Legends of Prague tour because we wanted to try a different way of exploring parts of the city than hopping on and off a bus or walking with the assistance of google maps and it was so worth it.
Our tour guide, David, was an American gem who knew to read the crowd and who also knew what he was talking about. He was funny, attentive and you could feel that he like what he did.
It wasn't spooky spooky but it was interesting, the stories were great and David found good ways to include us any time he got.
We enjoyed his humour and the way he spoke. The weather gave us a certain gloomy vibe when it started to snow.
Thank you for a great evening (even if you promised us hot wine before checking if the bar was actually open :))

Attended a tour with David; a humorous and vivid story teller originally from New Jersey - so his English was great 😉 Were "lucky" to have a bit of a thunder storm setting the ambiance, but with this guide that was not necessary as he brilliantly brought to life several dark ghost stories of Prague's past. If we are to mention something on the "negative" side he might have made one too many digressions and humorous comments on the members of the tour group. But this is true value for money, we highly recommend this to all who have a certain liking to ghosts, legends, history an good stories!

Our guide, David, was charming, polite and articulate. He showed us around the beautiful Old Town and told us some spooky stories related to it. Even if you don't like spooky stories, the stories are at least interesting to think over - there's probably rational explanations for all of them.

I would recommend doing this tour on your first day in Prague if you need some ideas of where to go and what to do.

Tomas was a great guy and we had a really enjoyable 90 minutes walking tour with lots of legends and stories thrown it. I especially enjoyed hearing Tomas talk about the history of the Czech Republic. It was very good value for money and I would recommend this tour to my friends and family when they visit Prague.
