    Don't hesitate to book with Insight Cities!
    We had a great experience with Bonita and Vadim. We joined Vadim for a behind the ropes visit to the Strahov Library before meeting up with Bonita for a tour of the castle complex. They are both such amazing guides--so engaging and interesting-- we wished we could have spent all of our time in Prague with them! I am confident that any tour with them would be amazing and I look forward to booking with them again.

    Cesky Krumlov: Trip of a lifetime
    The tour was absolutely fantastic and amazing. Our group was picked up from Prague. Our guides, Vod and Esther were extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and accommodating. The drive to Cesky was also a treat because we received a prelude of what was to come. If you are looking for adventure, a different experience, and good food, this is the tour. We enjoyed the shopping, cafes, and learning about Cesky history. Very interesting. I highly recommend the Cesky Krumlov tour with Insight Cities Prague. It is good for all ages. You will not be disappointed. Book today!

    Great time with Vadim, the books and the beer
    Vadim was an excellent guide and we had a great time on our tour! The libraries at Strahov are breathtaking, well worth the trip out there. I felt quite special being able to walk around the room, walk right up to the books and look at them while guests without the special access could only take pictures from either end. Vadim’s commentary made it come alive even more, he really did a wonderful job of explaining the context of the library’s creation. Even my father, who claims to know everything, admitted he learned a few new things - a true miracle. And the beer was excellent! The conversation flowed freely between the three of us and it was overall an enjoyable experience.

    Outstanding overview of Prague in 3 hours
    Ian Nascimento of Context Travel did an outstanding job as our tour guide. In just 3 hours he touched on all the important highlights. His knowledge of the rich history of Prague was evident and his ability to communicate and share his knowledge was greatly appreciated. If you are looking for a great and interesting overview of Prague this is the tour for you and Ian is the perfect tour guide

    Beer over books
    Library at the monestary is not worth the price. You can only look into the library from behind a barrier. Beer is good, caution the pub fills up early.

    An amazing tour with an amazing guide
    I have been taking tours around the world for over 40 years, and I can say that Vadim is one of the best guides I have had around the world for several reasons. Our first tour with him was for Art Nouveau and Cubist Architecture in Prague. But he was so good on that first tour that we arranged for him to give us another tour of the Prague Castle. My only sorrow is that we did not use him earlier in our trip to gain a fundamental understanding of Prague and the Czech republic from the outset. Vadim is a unique guide because he has an amazing depth and breadth of knowledge across many topics, including art, architecture, history, politics, religion, culture, and sociology. He is able to magically and seamlessly weave all of these things together in a conversation. Consequently, you hear not only about art or architecture, but also the history of Prague (and Europe) across hundreds of years. In his historical discussions, he tells you not only about the religious clashes underlying those events, but also the psychology driving different factions and decisions. Likewise, his discussion about art and architecture describe the historical and psychological context in which those different trends arose. Finally, while he is very funny, he thankfully does not use canned, rehearsed jokes that many guides painfully use. Rather, his comments and jokes arise naturally in conversation, as he peppers his discussions with funny anecdotes across history.

    Absolutety Wonderful
    Highly recommend this tour and Insight Cities. Vadim was a fantastic guide - interesting, personable and knowledgeable. The libraries were stunning and as a private tour, it was lovely to get that space and peace. Beer was great too! Enjoyed this one so much, booked other Insight Cities tours in Vienna and Budapest. Bonita was the so incredibly helpful in organising these.

    Fabulous architecture tour
    Vad is an excellent guide. His knowledge gave us great historical and cultural context for the architecture we looked at. We saw amazing buildings including some lesser known ones. There were opportunities for bathroom stops en route, which was greatly appreciated. I would have liked a little more of the cubist over the nouveau, but that is a minor quibble. Highly recommended.

    Prague with Vadim
    We toured Prague with the intro tour with Vadim, and he was so good we came back for the Power, Glory, and Destruction tour the next day. He combined facts and anecdotes in a way that made the tours both informative and memorable. My understanding of Prague history is so much deeper now — definitely recommend!!

    Perfect Architecture Tour
    Perfect architecture tour! Vadim was so fun and knowledgeable. We covered so much ground, but never rushed. What a well-organized tour comparing the most creative, innovative styles of buildings that make Prague so lovely.

    Enriching Tour of Prague for Art, History, and Beer Lovers
    A fascinating experience! We are so glad that we stepped away from the main tourist attractions, and experienced the rich history of Prague with our guide Matous! Mat was incredibly informative, and we enjoyed his commentary on the monasteries and breweries. The perfect tour for beer, art, and history lovers. We truly felt like this tour enriched our time in Prague!

    Insightful, fun, rewarding tour of Prague
    This was a really great way to spend a couple of hours wandering around the most interesting architecture. Vadim was very knowledgeable and very courteous. He took us into some great places not otherwise accessible via tourist guides, and was able to set his knowledge into the context of our understanding and perspectives of art, architecture and history.

    Best Prague Guide
    Vadim, our guide, was one of the best guides we have ever had the pleasure of knowing. He is very knowledgeable and extremely generous with his time. His explanations of the castle complex and St. Vitus Cathedral made it all come alive for us. The time spent with Vadim made our time in Prague a true pleasure. By ourselves we could not have gotten to appreciate the complex nearly as much as we did. I can't praise him enough!

The trip kept me very engaged the whole time while also teaching me a lot. It brought up a lot of questions in my mind that we’re all answered kindly.

Thanks for the warm review. Glad you enjoyed Vadim's tour. It's very exciting for us to have students groups returning to Europe and taking our tours again. We hope to see you in the future on Insight Cities tours in Prague, Vienna, Berlin, Budapest and Salzburg. Wishing you a great academic experience in Prague.

No one is better qualified than Vadim, with his personal lived experience of Russian, American, and Czech cultures, to tell these stories of Soviet occupation and the Czech struggles for independence. Vadim informs, entertains, and charms. Ask questions! Vadim can answer them. These are important historical sites, but I'm sure few people get the the level of insight I got on this tour.
