I wanted to post and let those traveling to Prague know of an absolutely amazing tour guide that my husband and I recently spent two days with in Prague.
Eva Trkalova (www.trkalova.guide-prague.cz) was the best tour guide that we have had the pleasure of working with. We normally hire guides for private tours when traveling overseas in order to really get the most out of our trips and to get more of a local take on a place.
With Prague one of our reasons for hiring a guide was really the limited time we had there and the potential language barrier.
Eva not only spoke perfect English, but in two days ( 8 hours that flew by each day) really gave us a true sense of Prague, what it what like to grow up Czech and what is like to be Czech today. If you truly want to be a traveler and not just a tourist this is the way to go. Eva is vibrant, diverse in her interests, and very knowledgable about ALL aspects of her country and Prague.
We shared with Eva, prior to our arrival, our interests in history and beer (this is Prague folks) and Eva did a wonderful job tailoring her Prague Exploration tour to give us a very thorough over view of the city (and how to get around when she wasn't with us :) ) as well as taking us to points of interest that would really matter to us based on our interests and requests.
If you are traveling to Prague and really want to get to "know" Prague then definately get in touch with Eva.
Prague is an incredible city and the Czech Republic an incredible coutnry. We cannot wait to return. On our next trip to the Czech Republic we plan on working with Eva to take some of her tours outside of Prague itself to see more of the amazing Czech Republic.
-- Enjoy and for those of you searching I hope this helps.
