After checking out all the main prague tourist spots, were looking for something different. We happened upon insight prague from a write up in the Globe and Mail newspaper. We decided on the cold war tour and were not disappointed. Vad took us around the city and showed us many interesting sights from the communist era. His historical knowledge is amazing and made the trip very enjoyable. What's unique about Vad's tours is 1) the depth and expertise of the guide and 2) they offer tours in areas other than the standard tourists spots. Cannot recommend this more.

We spent 4+ amazing hours with Bonita giving us the best background on history, architecture, art nouveau, art deco, and modern Czech life that we ever could have hoped for! We explored the nooks and crannies of all the neighbourhoods, churches, synagogues, and public squares of this most charming city. The detail that Bonita alerted us to, such as the symbolic frontispieces of the original buildings was something that we never would have noted on our own, and certainly not with a huge tour group. On our following days, we knew exactly what we wanted to delve more deeply into. We only wish we had more time with Bonita, who was a wealth of information. When we return we will certainly book her again, and we have made several referrals to friends to this amazing service. We also appreciated her list of recommended restaurants off the beaten track. As this company expands to other European cities, you can bet that we will book with Insight Prague!

We were on our first visit to Prague and looking forward to it. Everyone we know that had been there told us we would love it. We did!!! We have gotten into the good habit of hiring a private guide when we are in city that is new to us and really glad we did in Prague with Vadim. Prague is a beautiful city and we were able to appreciate it better given Vad's deep, extensive knowledge and enthusiasm, I'm still not sure which one of these qualities in Vad is bigger. Conversations about Prague and its' recent history were incredible as we walked from one interesting spot to another. He took us to the old portion of the train station and given the construction work going on, we were likely the last people to see the century old facade in its' untouched glory. After a half day with Vad, I felt ready for the mid term exam of a mid level architectural course.

We are enthusiastic about touring with Vad and recommend him without reservation. Wear comfortable shoes and you will enjoy the entire experience.

Vadim's English was perfect and for anyone who is into architecture, as I am, he's a must. We had a most wonderful discussion about the finer points of Baroque architecture ... what an afternoon!

Dear Vadim, thank you for your insightful guiding in Prague. I am amazed by your vast knowledge and I enjoyed it very much. I think you have a story about every stone in historical Prague. You are an walking encyclopedia. Highly reccomend to everybody who want to learn anything about Prague. -- Turiya
