  • Excellent tour, dont be confused, in the picture the Jerusalem Synagogue that is not part of the tour. If you want to visit the Old New synagogue you need to buy ticket and visit by yourself

  • This was a really good tour. The only thing that was disappointing is we did not get to go into the Old-New Synagogue. But it was really easy to go back later in the week on my own and do it seperately. I really learned a lot about Jewish history on this tour. I would definitely recommend this trip.

  • Very very slow and what could have been done in 1 1/2 hours took 3. The guide, Sara, certainly knew her stuff but she was very repetitive and because she had to speak in 2 languages Spanish and English, the tour seemed to take forever. The synagogue with all 180 000 names of the people who died during the Holocaust was memorable as was the cemetery. The final synagogue, the Spanish Synagogue, was spectacular.

  • Good tour. But guide was a little snarky. Not a friendly person. But it was worth it nonetheless.

  • First of all we got lost trying to get to the meeting place and were very late. The young lady at the information booth, went above and beyond locating where the group were at so we join up with them. Then she had another team member walk us over to where the group where. I'm sorry I did not get their names as they deserve a huge recognition for going above and beyond customer service. Thank you.
    The tour was very informative. Our guide was great and covered a lot.

  • The tour was listed as being led by an English guide, however, it was in English, Spanish and German. That was extremely disappointing because we had two-thirds less bandwidth to hear insights in our native language -- leaving us to stand around and endlessly wait until dialogue in the other languages was completed. Strongly do not recommend.

  • The woman who led the tour was sub-par. Specifically unfriendly with a sour attitude. I asked her if there were Stolpersteine stepping stones by Gunther Demnig, a German artist, in Prague. She said definitely not, without even asking what they were. I looked it up in Wikipedia and it did mention their location in Prague, in Kafka Square, which I found and photographed. Just an example of her lack of knowledge and her cocksure attitude. Also, the tour organizer added 2 Spanish-speaking customers to the group. The 10 or so others were English-speaking, yet the guide spoke Spanish at least 35 of the time. Not fair to most of the customers and very ill-advised.

  • A group of 10. Guide Ludmilla ,I think, explained the history of the people in the city from early days. The synagogues we visited are now used for tourism but each focussed on a different aspect. A solemn walk through the old cemetery and the museum. If you are interested in any part of Judaism I would recommend the tour.

  • Great tour - revealed another view of Prague and its History. Thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone with an interest in history.

  • The Jewish quarter in Prague is one of the last remaining in Europe after WW2, and it's really worth checking out. We visited a few synagogues, so if you haven't been in one yet then this is your chance. The Spanish synagogue especially was beautiful, and the picture does not do it justice. If you have no problem walking and standing for three hours, then you definitely should take this tour, because it's very interesting and the guide was very good himself.
