What people are saying about Josefov

I decided this would be the first activity that I would take part in whilst in Prague and I am SO GLAD I did. I arrived at the meeting point and was welcomed warmly by my tour guide Sebastian. Sebastian did an excellent job of explaining what the tour would include and after a test drive we set off. The trikes were so fun and easy to drive. As I was the only one on the tour this really made it personal and Sebastian asked if there was anywhere in particular I would like to see. Ahe was the professional I asked to be taken to the best places to see and he duly delivered. over the two hours we stopped at some of the most beautiful landmarks in Prague. Sebastian's knowledge of the city and its history along with the articulate way he desbriced everything he told me was fantastic. His english was perfect. I cannot wait to come back to Prague. I will definitely do this tour again and will specifically ask for Sebastian. Look forward to seeing you again my friend!

I hired a van with driver and tour guide to show my family and I around Prague. They picked us up at our Hotel and dropped us off at the end. The tour lasted three hours. This was an excellent choice for my family. I didn’t have to worry about driving or parking and my family had plenty of room to relax without other people around. The van was very nice with lots of room. The driver was polite and relaxed. The tour guide was great. Our guid took us to all the land marks and hit on the historic key points. Our guid was extremely knowledgeable on the history of the city and even took us to a couple local land marks important to the people and not common to travelers. As a family of 5 this was perfect. We saw everything we wanted and didn’t get stuck being bored in a large group. The cost was extremely affordable. This private tour cost half as much as our tours in other countries. I would definitely recommend this to everyone.

Excellent fun activity to get around lots of the various sites in Prague while getting a brief overview of each! Our knowledgeable guide Sebastian was brilliant, giving our small group an unbiased history at each stop. Great introduction to Prague! Highly recommended.

Kathy was an excellent guide. Very knowledgeable about the city and tailored/adjusted our itinerary as the day progressed and we learned more about the city. Great way to get an overview of the city and key sites.

Great tour. It would be nice if the free 45 minutes, which are given to explore the magnificent temple, were also organized by the guide
