  • 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.

  • Wow what a great tour and fantastic guide. His knowledge , description and they way he related to the group was first class. He spent time answering all questions and nothing was too much trouble for him . Overall a great experience

  • Very interesting and informative Camilla was a great tour guide with real passion for the subject. We were with Jewish friends and the tour was very interesting to both Jew and non Jew alike. I had been to the Josef quarter some years ago, but learnt far more from this tour and would thoroughly recommend it and as it was one of the hottest days of the year - way up in the 20s was quite prepared to drop out if it got too much. Very good.

  • This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. Our guide. Sarah, was both knowledgeable and interesting. I really enjoyed her extra bits of information and insights. We covered a lot of ground but it was worth every step. Thoroughly recommend this tour

  • Way too many people on the tour. The guide had to explain everything twice: once in English, and once in French. He took us to a museum and read the plaques for us without including any other little known facts or idiosyncrasies, the reason we like to take tours. He could not answer questions very knowledgeably at all. We left partway through the tour because we figured we could do as well on our own.

  • It was a nice tour the only thing I didn't like were that the guide had to take time to explain everything in two languages which can be boring and time consuming. He also said there are no Jews living in Prague then continued to talk about the only still working synagogue, so there must be Jews living in Prague.

  • This tour is well worth doing. The tour guide we had, Jana, was very well versed in all things Jewish and made the tour a pleasant and enjoyable one. Shame we only visited 4 of the 6 Synagogues in Prague but there is only so much one can do in 3 hours.

  • This was the worst tour I have ever taken.there were4 english speaking people and 2 Spanish speaking people. The guide spend 10 of her time speaking Spanish and should then turn and give us a 1 min explaination in engliSh. The guild left the english speaking people to go on there own and see the museum while she spent the whole time speaking in Spanish. 1 American left after 1 hour and the 3 who remained left after another 40 min. We were ignored and did not enjoy any part of this experience. I would definite not recommend this to anyone.
