Great fun!
I've been on plenty of tours in Europe but this was by far the most fun. It's something totally different and laid back. It felt much more like going around the town with a new friend than being on a traditional tour. If you like trying new things and having a few good drinks this is a must do in Prague. Nataly is great. She's friendly, funny and very knowledgeable about absinthe.

Walk The Old Town With Local Guide
Excellent tour
Prague World War II & Communism Tour
Super fun, tasty, and informative!
Wow, we had a blast! We decided to go as a family (we're all of age) and I figured it may be tough to appeal to a variety of ages/personalities but Natalie did a fantastic job of keeping us interested throughout. Her passion for this really shines through as she takes you to some fantastic Absinthe bars and provides you with history as well as tasting tips on the tour. Would recommend for anyone visiting Prague that is looking for a unique and eclectic experience.

I would definitely recommend it!
Green Fairy: Absinthe Tour of Prague
Excellent tour that I would recommend to everybody
Dana was an excellent guide! She talked about Prague from the perspective of a local and showed us areas that we would never have thought about going to. We avoided most, if not all, the crowded areas, but still managed to see all the beautiful sights of this beautiful city. We loved the walk through the public orchard going up to the castle. This is one tour that we would recommend 100%

Great tour
Took a tour with my fiancé and her mother. Natalia was a lot of fun and very informative. She was right on time and was very fast with email responses. We had so much fun, we booked another tour 2 days later
Green Fairy: Absinthe Tour of Prague
A very nice way to start a Saturday
Our group of 13 Norwegian teachers booked a walk with Michaela, and we did not regret it. She is very nice, considerate and full of knowledge. We enjoyed every step. She took us to places we might have found anyway, but also places we never would have discovered by ourselves. She also told us fascinating stories about Mozart, the Czech language, The Velvet Revolution and the Jewish people of Prague that we wouldn't have heard without her. We are very happy about the walk, and I recommend her warmly!

Off the Beaten Path
Dana is an engaging knowledgeable friendly guide who takes you where others do not.

Relaxing stroll along empty lanes, along the river, and quirky places you would not find on your own.

Great! Highly recommended.

Highly recommened!
Our tour was with Jack (Honza) who was really friendly and took the time to understand what my partner I were interested in learning about. He tried to relate to this where possible during the tour which was a nice touch. Very knowledgeable about the topic and it was really interesting to hear his perspectives on a range of topics both historical and contemporary.

Green Fairy: Absinthe Tour of Prague
Great tour!
Dana is a wonderful tour guide and the tour itself was very interesting. I recommend this tour, if you want to see something else than the overcrowded tourist streets.

Great tour to understand what happened during WWII and under Communism
Honza is an excellent guide. He is well educated, informed and thoughtful. He guided us through almost 100 years of history in an understandable and interesting manner. His stories made history come to life and made it seem more personal. We learned a lot and enjooyed our time with him. He was most generous with his time and knowledge.
Excellent experience!
Prague World War II & Communism Tour
Tragedy and Triumph in the Czech Republic
We signed up for this tour not knowing quite what to expect, but we were aware of both the Nazi and Communist invasions/takeovers of Czechoslovakia and wanted to learn more. Our guide Michal provided significant and detailed information about the tragedies and heroism of the Czech people under both regimes. Facts and analysis were at Michal's fingertips and we visited places in Prague we would not have otherwise seen or even been aware of. One can read about historical incidents and get some flavor of events, but to see, for example, bullet holes in building facades, the place where the Gestapo "interviewed" prisoners, where the assassins of Hitler's top representative in Prague were betrayed and committed suicide after the Nazis overcame their defenses, and where the young Czech students immolated themselves to protest Soviet domination, brings history to life. Michal gave us almost more information than we could absorb, but he was passionate about his country's past and current history, political and otherwise. While it may not appeal to all, if you have any interest in 20th century history, this tour is a must.
Prague World War II & Communism Tour
Walk the old town with Michaela was one of the best moments of our visit to Prague. She is a very warm, friendly and a humble human being. She talked to us, told us about herself and her family and so did we share about our family and then it was like a close friend showing you her city and explaining you everything so nicely!!! She is extremely flexible, in the fact that we had already been to a spot in the tour beforehand and so we told her and she said “no problem I will take you and show you something else interesting”, that was very sweet of her! So I highly recommend a tour with Michaela to anyone who wants to know about the history of Prague and see all the important historical spots plus make a friend for life 😊😊😊👍👍👍👍
Walk The Old Town With Local Guide
In Prague, you cannot find many local tour guides. Most of the guides are foreigners. This is probably due to the English education and Czech people's reserved personality. Michaela is one of the rare locals that know a lot about the history of the country and at the same time, speak great English and are able to communicate in an international way. We talked about the ancient and recent history of Czech and Slovakia, as well as different sides of Czech society. She is a passionate storyteller and the content are organized so well that our experience is immersive. If we did not go on this tour, we will be only two dumb tourists who have seen tons of castles but know nothing about this country. It means nothing if you come to Czech but does not have a conversation with a local except for ordering food and checking in at the hotel. Also, Michaela used to lead large groups of tourist so no worries for the quality of the touristic parts.
Walk The Old Town With Local Guide
You can book this one without thinking! Michaela is a great guide and tells you all the things that are worth knowing and fun to remember. Tour ends in the park near the castle and from there it is only a few minutes walking to the castle, a nice bonus.
Walk The Old Town With Local Guide
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.

Excellent tour
We really enjoyed our tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He seemed to have an excellent grasp of the topic and told us a lot of things we would never have been able to find out on our own. Seeing the different sites where things actually took made the tour feel very authentic. This was the best tour we had in Praha.

Our guide didn't not try to rush the tour which was great. He was able to answer all of our questions.

One bit of feedback we would suggest is to describe what life was like under communism for the average person.

Overall it was a wonderful experience and we would definitely work with your company again.

Thank you.
