About Jana Michalcova - Prague Journeys
I am licensed guide of Prague, the Czech Republic and the Jewish Town. I am also a studied archaeologist and history lover and I'm definitely in love with Prague. Though I am originally from Slovakia, I feel Czech the same way as Slovakian. I cannot imagine to live in a different city that I would call "home". Actually, when I was born, there was still one country called Czechoslovakia! Would you believe that I have lived in four different countries and moved physically only once? That’s because of the political changes in the last decades. Let me explain it to you in person on the tour :-) I am guiding since 2010 and would love to show all the beauties of my Prague hometown.

Private World War II and Communism Tour We had contacted Jana, from Prague Journeys, to organise a tour covering both topics and she was so helpful in putting together an itinerary that covered both. She also suggested changing the day of our tour so that all the sites we wanted to visit would be open. We were picked up on time by Jana and Tomas, our driver, in a very comfortable van. Jana checked with us to find out what we had already seen so that we could concentrate on other aspects. She was very organised, knowledgeable enthusiastic and we saw places and sites both in the city and outside that we would never have found on our own. The amount of information we were given was just right - enough to gain a good understanding but not so much that we were overwhelmed. She even included snacks and water as our tour went for 5 hours. At the conclusion of the tour Jana gave us a package with maps, tourist information and lots more information about everything we had talked about, including suggested books and movies. She followed up later to check that the tour had met our expectations and whether anything could be improved. The tour, Jana and Tomas were excellent and I definitely recommend using Jana to organise your tours in Prague.

Fell in love with the city of Prague - all thanks to Jana! She led an incredible tour of the city and was super accommodating based on our timeline and areas of interest. Jana smartly started us at the top of the hill near the monastery and we worked our way down through the city! She did a great job of explaining the history of every building, every walkway, every bridge - even the Castle lights. Did you know the Rolling Stones paid to have the Castle lit up at night? I did not. Jana naturally did! All in all, I cannot recommend Jana enough! Thanks again!

Jana made Prague come alive. She had a wealth of knowledge that included history of Old Town, Prague Castle, Charles Bridge & Jewish Ghetto with how WWII changed it all. Jana had early access for private tour of Strahov Library which is not to be missed. Her personal experience of living through the Soviet Occupation made this tour the highlight our trip to Prague.
