fantastic tour and guide
Dana, our guide, was all that we could ask for (and more). When we (husband and wife) visit a foreign city, we usually try to arrange an in-depth tour with a local guide who can show us things off the beaten track and yet fill us in on the touristy stuff as well. We use that information to guide us for the rest of our stay. Dana filled the bill completely. She guided us to spots with very few, if any, tourists and explained the history of Prague and the various places around the various places in/around the city she took us to. Yes, we visited the Castle grounds and saw the Charles Bridge, all packed with tourists, but, to get the best feel for both locations, Dana told us to come back to the Castle at night when the tourists were mostly gone (and some of the Castle attractions became free) and to visit the Bridge in the early morning before the tourists arrived. She led us down a narrow passageway for lunch at a restaurant near the Castle with no tourists present except four or five roadies who were there to set up the Rolling Stones concert later that evening and who had been to Prague several times before with the band. Dana showed us how to use Prague transportation; she gave us restaurant recommendations where we'd meet mostly, if not entirely, locals; and she followed up an email request to give us information about other places to visit during our stay that we might have otherwise missed. I could go on with details of our tour and other things Dana did to make it so memorable, but take it yourself. You won't be disappointed.
