No one will jump out at you to try to scare you. On this tour we focus on storytelling and not on special effects or cheap tricks to make the tour ‚frightening‘. We will take you through the mysteries, legends and tales from the darker side of Prague’s history, and...

    The tour is very nice !! Lots of information about people who lived in Prague and how few of them came to their gruesome end. The route we walked was also nice.

I would strongly recommend this tour, not just if you like ghost stories but also if you are looking for an excellent way to unwind after a hectic touristic day !
