“Great way to see Prague”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

As not first time travelers to Prague we wanted some deeper insightful and fun tour(s) of some of the areas and history in Prague. We get as bussines gift Old Town Walking Tour (including the Castle). Eva was very cute, funny and knowledgeable about the sights we saw in and about the River Vltava. It really gave us a great overview of the area running from Emauzy down to Mala strana and Castle. We also took a nice little break midway through the tour for a glass of wine. This was a great orientation tour.

I highly recommend this tour and Eva of course.

“Great experience with Eva from Sightseeing Prague”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

My friends and I (3 couples) took the 4hour overview tour with Eva at the beginning of our stay in Prague. Eva showed us all the main sights in Prague as well as some of the hidden streets and beautiful gardens. We got plenty of tips for the next days. Simply: we can recommend Eva and her tours for all of you!

“Insiders Guide to Getting the Best of Prague in 2 - 3 days: What to see, What to do and What to avoid”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

Prague – In just 2 - 3 days:
What to see – What to do – What to avoid

Prague is the home of “The Infant of Prague”, Franz Kafka, The birth of Art Nouveau (Mucha: Pronounce Mookhaar) after the artist Alphonse Mucha, Stunning Bohemian glass and really good beers
.
Choose a hotel in Mala Strana near to the river or quiet cul de sacs near the Charles Bridge (“Lesser Town”) – Praha 1 district its quiet and this area is the real Prague. Avoid hotels in the centre of the Old Town and Wenceslas Sq – these areas are busy and crowded.

Eating / Drinking out as above – in Mala Strana are the real Czech restaurants and Cafes where the locals eat and drink for 150 - 180 cK will get you a hearty 2 course meal complete with a beer (that’s about £5 - £6) …. That’s really good value and proper Czech food – Try Goulash and dumplings or Stroganoff with rice and duck dishes are plentiful ……. Avoid the famous pork knuckle (knee) a. its way too big, b. its way too salty and c. its impossible to dissect. Cheaper still are the many Chinese restaurants throughout Prague – dishes average around 80 cK (£2.50) to eat in! Best places to eat there are many just try the Mala Stranska Sq and Nerudova for the real thing. Avoid those restaurants that have menu touts ora sales person trying to persuade you to come in with offers and deals.
.
A must also is to try the local cylindrical dough pastry snack rolled in walnut called Trdelnik from a bakery or Trdelnik stand. Try this with coffee for an afternoon snack - delicious

All the thousands of tourists / day trippers navigate to 4 main places:- The Charles Bridge (heaving under the hordes), The Old Town Square with its Astronomical Clock (9am – 9pm), Prague Castle and the pedestrian only shopping route with its many glass and souvenir shops winding its way along from Karlova > Old Town Sq > Celetna > Orocny trh > Na Prikope to Wenceslas Sq with its 5 story Bata shoe store. There are also some 40 museums covering as many different subjects but all charge at least £5 entrance
.
Whilst the discerning visitor will wish to incorporate the above sights, to lighten the effect of swimming against the tide of thousands of tourists then walk across the Charles Bridge early – after breakfast and before 10am when it is relatively quiet and before the day trippers arrive or savour late at night on the way back the hotel. The Karlova Street is always teeming and busy and there is no answer to avoiding the crowds leading up to the hourly Astronomical Clock display (hang on to your bags).

Tips on how to really enjoy Prague: Wonder off the main trails by just a few seconds and the rewards are rich indeed. In Mala Strana meander onto Kampa Island for the Na Kampe and the quiet promenade gardens with their panoramic views, sculptures and atmospheric quaint side streets with beautiful old buildings and the tucked away colourful John Lennon Wall with its poetic and philosophical graffiti. Two minutes from the Charles Bridge and close to Franz Kafka’s house in Cihelna Steet (you may be its only visitor as it’s not on many an itinerary), shop and museum you will find “hidden” a tranquil public garden - Vojanovy Sady with its peacocks and fruit trees
.
The Castle and St. Vitus Cathedral are best visited first thing – go straight after an early breakfast before the coach party rush hour arrives. The walk is steep any way but relatively short if you take the tucked away Zamecke schody (steps) and don’t use the Nerudova route that 99% of people seem to do. A Prague Castle combined ticket costs around 450 cK. But to be honest you can see most of it for free by wandering around the lanes and courtyards and St. Vitus Cathedral has free admittance enough for you to see. From the castle stroll to the Loreto Convent and peaceful Strahov Monastery to relax. From the Strahov Monastery you will discover a fantastic and stunning panoramic view over Prague and walk back down via Uvoz and Nerudova.

Must See in Prague are three Churches: Our Lady of Victories in Karmelitska which is home to the world famous shrine of the Infant of Prague and is open free all day. You will find an interesting museum here, shop and Sacristy. Mass is celebrated at 9am and 6pm on weekdays with Mass at different times on Sundays in different languages. The Old Town twin spire Church of Our Lady before the Tyn with is stunning Baroque Interior. Mass is celebrated at around 12 noon. The Church of Our Lady of the Snows at Jungmannovo náměstí with it peaceful Franciscan gardens.
There are also many parish churches that you will come across but recommended is the San Salvatore opposite the Charles Bridge (Old Town end) …. Where you can drop in and sit quietly away from the hustle and bustle of the crowds outside.

If you have time then take the Funicular up Petrin Hill (for the cost of a tram fare only). On week days its very quiet with no queues especially if you go up late afternoon then stroll back down through the Seminary Gardens or via the Strahov Monastery.

For a feel of artistic Prague then a visit to the Franz Kafka house, museum and shop and the Mucha Museum are well worth it.

Beer: Price ranges from 29 cK – 80 cK (330ml – 1 lit) but basically £1 a drink so its good value for good beer. The 2 famous brands – Pilsner Urquell and Budweiser Budvar are popular ….. but try the Prague Staropramen beer and the Krusovice beer as these are cheaper and really good also try the famous dark beer versions which are excellent. When you are visiting the Strahov Monastery go to their own brewery and try their range of three famous St. Norbert’s Beers – Strong Light Beer IPA, Amber Beer and the incredible Dark Beer and during summer their unfiltered stunning Wheat Beer flavoured with cloves.

All in all Prague is simply a perfect destination.

“Excellent overall experience”
Reviewed July 4, 2012

Eva was our guide throughout the Terezin experience and led us through a meaningful and worthwhile day. As teachers on a study fellowship, we needed strong, thorough guidance and Eva provided that and more. She showed up early at our hotel with all the transportation tickets we needed, prepared us throughout our train trip to the Terezin concentration camp, and led us step by step through the experience. She showed an excellent knowledge of what took place at Terezin, a sincere approach to the seriousness of the situation, and a strong use of the English language. We needed to make the most of the day, and she made that possible in every way!

“Prague walking tour with private guide Eva”
Reviewed June 18, 2012

Eva is an excellent guide and seeing famous attractions of Prague with Eva was a very engaging experience!! She has an art of story telling when she talks about history and culture. It was one of the most memorable experiences of the grand city tour and a day trip with Eva to Cesky Krumlov!!
Highly recommended to go for private guiding!!
