We were a group of 12 visiting Prague before a Danube Christmas Market Cruise. We had heard about the Night Watchmen Tours and were anxious to give it a try. David Mertens was wonderful in helping us decide if we wanted the 1 1/2 hour tour or since we were a large group we could do the 3 hour tour. After some emails back and forth he advised we should do the 1 1/2 hours tour and we were amazing at what a fun and interesting evening we had. Martin was our 'Night Watchman" and with his knowledge and bit of humor we were able to understand what life was like in the old days. Martin was so professional and knowledgeable and even escorted us to our restaurant out of 'Old Town" which we understand in his day was very dangerous for the Night Watchmen to leave the city. Truly a wonderful experience! Not to be missed for visitors of any age!

Not getting to experience travel firsthand right now, I signed up for this virtual tour via Zoom. David is an awesome tour guide, and gives a timely, informative and historical tour. Lots of great insight into the City. David did a great job of interacting with us and watching for questions. I really liked the digital poll questions, and the map tracing the route.

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 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!

Enjoyed this tour, would have liked a bit more info on non religious aspects. Nightwatchman was in character which added some humour.

We had done this years ago in Rothenburg , so when we learned that this tour was available in English, we booked it (on Tripadvisor!). With light historic commentary focused on how people lived here in the Middle Ages (as opposed to dates, historic figures and major events) this night time walk takes you across the old town and drops you off at the bridge. Even in a little drizzle, we enjoyed it.

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.

This unique tour is the perfect way to experience the beautiful city of Prague!

Hi Sarah, I would like to thank you. At first place for joining me in my night-watch but also for this excellent review. I really appreciate you spent your time on it. I’m happy that you and your husband enjoyed the tour but I have to admit I was much more relaxed having professional firefighter with us. Thank you and have a good time. Martin

Hello Stefanie, Thanks a lot for this great review. I enjoyed this bi-lingual tour also myself, since we normally alwys split German and English. It was also fun and challenging for me. Sending you my best wishes from Praguem, all the best.
