My wife and I (ages 59 & 70) signed up for Rob's exceptional tour while staying at the Alcron Hotel in Prague. Rob started our tour at our Hotel which has many Art Deco period pieces, and then transitioned us through Renaissance, Classical, Baroque periods and more! Rob has a keen intellect when it comes to Architecture and takes you to hidden gems which you would probably never find on your own including a private Chapel built in the 1200's. Rob also has a unique sense of humor, speaks fluent English and Czech. We recommend this tour to those interested in Architecture and the history of Prague. Five Stars and 2 Thumbs up, Way Up!

Rob has a massive amount of knowledge about art and history and their relationship and conveys it very engagingly. I learned a tremendous amount about artistic movements of the last 1000 years in this wide-ranging tour of architecture in the heart of Prague.

Rob gave an excellent tour. Enthusiastic, and well organized, he provided a highly informative and engaging 3 hour tour. There were wonderful surprises and insights at each stop. I learned a great deal that added to my strong background in art history. I highly recommend this tour.

While I found some of the tour informative, a lot of it felt disjointed with little context. The most engaging and thorough parts of the tour were the visits to two churches are the beginning. Suffice to say things went downhill when the guide made a pretty distasteful (and unfunny) joke about my appearance based on my email profile. I chose the tour based on its excellent reviews, so hopefully our experience was simply an aberration.

Response from archifreetour, Owner at Rob's Prague and Czech Folk Architecture Tour
Responded Dec 23, 2019
Due to the  layered urban development of historical Prague, it is not possible to visit the sites on the tour in a historically chronological order. But that said, all major European styles are covered, both in interiors and exteriors and show unique example of Romanesque to Gothic, Baroque  and  Art Deco. Further, the tours always deliver on an visually  informative content as is visible from other reviews. The evaluation of humor and profile photos are both personally subjective.opinion.
