My husband and I took this tour with Michal and really enjoyed it. We were a small group altogether. Four of us, plus Michal. We stopped for a drink in a café first and then did some walking, followed by a short tram ride to a park with a great view, and then to a unique kind of community center, and a snack at courtyard cinema. All the while, Michal provided interesting information about what we were passing by and discussed topics you don't normally hear about while travelling to new cities -- such as homelessness and LGBTQ issues.

This experience was a really great complement to the other events we had planned while visiting, and it felt like we came away with a richer understanding of the current culture in Prague, even if that glimpse was a brief one.

Best way to know Prague
This tour is a fantastic way to avoid the super crowded historic center, and get a real taste of this wonderful city. I had been in Prague before, and did not really enjoy it: too many tourists compressed in a small circuit was suffocating for me....

So this time I decided to look for something alternative, and luckily I found it. Michal guided us - we were five in the group - through hidden cultural spots, gave us historical references, and also current information about Prague, its culture and its social life. We wandered through parks and residential neighborhoods, visited community centers, and ended sharing beers after the tour in a lovely local bar.

I totally recommend this tour, I hope there were more of this kind in different cities. :-)
