This is a must. We had a great four days in Prague, but this tour definitely stood out. Despite being the only two attendees on a wet and windy night in down season, David was enthusiastic, witty and charismatic. He was very informative, not only about 17th century Prague but also answered all of our questions about other things we’d seen. It lasted 90 minutes. Highly recommend!

We thouroughly enjoyed the Nightwatchman tour through Prague old town. Our guide was Martin and he was very informative and made the tour lots of fun. Loved the authentic clothes they wear and hearing about life in 1633 Prague. Highly recomend this tour.

This groups is very accommodating and professional. We booked a tour with them, then had a problem and could not attend. They were quick to respond to our request, did everything they could to accommodate and work with us. Thank you, it is unusual to have a tour group help as much as they did. Thank you!

We went on tour with Martin in English, but we also met his colleague giving the German-language tour. Both guides were professional, early waiting for us at the starting point, and committed to their characters without being too over-the-top. Our guide was very flexible and responsive as we walked along, adding additional commentary where requested and dealing with a few drunken onlookers with finesse. I was sick, and had to reschedule, which was done with no problem. We had originally intended to do this tour the first night in Prague, which I would def recommend because it's nice introduction to Old Town.

My one recommendation for the tour route would be to start at Charles/Stone Bridge and conclude at Powder Tower, which seemed to be more populated at the time the tour concluded.

This is a great way to see Prague's old town at night. Even if you have seen the city in the morning the night is an amazing time to soak in the sites again. Martin, our tour guide was very friendly and informative. We heard how life was in the 17th century and the history of the monuments in the old town. All in all, if you want to see Prague old town at night this is an amazing way to do it.

David was an extremely entertaining and engaging guide; I arrived expecting a good experience because of the reviews I’d read but I did not expect to have such an enriching and unforgettable night—no question was too much of a bother for him and I learnt a lot about the history of both Prague/the Czech Republic *and* how things worked back in the day.

This was all despite the cold and rainy January night it was—I myself loved it and thought it added to the experience but even my fellow travellers who were freezing all agreed that it was very much worth it and highly recommended.

Thanks a lot, David, and good luck with everything!
