    Eva explained really well and it was a highlight for our tour to Prague. We especially felt humbled by the memorial to those Jews that were lost skiing the holocaust. The Spanish synagogue was very impressive to see.

    While my family very much appreciated the detailed tour of the Prague's historic Jewish Quarter, and we learned a great deal through the many exhibits along the route, we were very disappointed in our guide. In a number of instances she lacked familiarity with basic Jewish practices and also lacked awareness of antisemitic tropes resulting in unfortunate, insensitive comments. She seemed to be determined to stay on a script, without any curiosity to engage in conversation when we aimed to share our family's experiences or tried to correct a few inaccuracies related to Jewish customs. Our tour would have been more meaningful if our guide had a better understanding of Jewish practices, was more sensitive to the impact of xenophobia and antisemitism, and engaged more with those of us on the the tour.

    Eva was so knowledgeable about Jewish history, customs and religion, and truly enjoys enlightening others. We are jewish and learned so much from her. Highly recommend this tour.

    The tour covers about 5 buildings in a small area as most of the Jewish ghetto was destroyed years ago. The tour could have been done in only 90 min to 2 hours instead of 3 hours. We saw mostly museums with nicely preserved artifacts, and two synagogues. The cemetery was impressive. Our tour guide Eva was nice but dry in her delivery. Would suggest incorporating the Jewish into an all-inclusive tour of Prague.

    Anna, our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. Very thorough tour of all 4 synogogues, the old cemetery, and museums.

    This was an amazing tour! I study history, but my tour guide blew me away with her knowledge about Jewish history in Prague. She was incredibly nice, my age, and very smart. I was worried how a tour this specific could keep my interest for over 3 hours, but I was so sad when it ended because I was enthralled by her knowledge and teaching/tour style. I would definitely recommend this private tour.

    Lenka was a very nice guide. We had a pleasant time. Worth a guiding hand to walk through this history.

    Prohlídku jsem absolvovala po druhé, ne naposled. Velmi silný zážitek, který všem doporučuji. Paní průvodkyně ví mnoho informací nad rámec.

    I went on this tour with myself and my partner. We were glad we paid extra for a private tour because we would of missed so much information if we just got admission. It was easy to organize at the front desk and we really enjoyed our tour guide Dana! She answered all of our questions and showed so much passion and emotion in the tour. Must do when in Prague!

    Die Führung war super spannend, wir konnten ihr alle Fragen stellen und sie hat uns nach der Führung jeweils Zeit gegeben, so dass wir selbst noch Dinge anschauen konnten. Sie hat Judaica studiert und wusste unglaublich viel! Ich kann die Führung nur weiter empfehlen.
