    the only problem was several languages on tour and we had to share the tour guide as she spent alot of time speak to the other non english speaking participants

    there were enough people to do an english only tour

    This tour started out badly. We used the location indicated on the ticket purchase confirmation to try and find the meeting place, which was stated as a yellow kiosk. However, when we emerged from the metro, we couldn’t find it. Eventually we did, but not after 15-20 frantic minutes. We barely made the tour on time - and we had deliberately come early!

    Viator needs to provide Google Maps style maps showing the meeting place! The same thing happened on a tour in Normandy.

    The actual tour was ok but seemed rushed. It spent the first 15 minutes or so getting to the Jewish district, including a church stop. Why it didn’t begin closer to the district is unclear.

    The tour guide, whose name I don’t recall, was fair. She was very brief with responses to questions and her eye contact was with one or two members of the group. That said, she was quite knowledgeable. Any misgivings with the tour are not because of her.

    The tour was a huge disappointment. We were 4 people who ordered the tour and thought we were having a private guide as it said in the description. We had 13 people on the tour not just the four of us and two were Russian speakers so the guide kept stopping to explain everything in Russian. Because of this she was running late so skipped certain things. For example The description says
    Discover an exhibition dedicated to the famous author, Kafka, in the Old Town Square. All she did was point out the house he lived in.
    Totally not worth the money.

    Highly recommended. Our guide Dana knew so much and made a trip to Prague so interesting and worthwhile.

    The tour was good but I felt we had to move very quickly. I was disappointed the old synagogue was not included. Some of the details about Jewish customs and traditions described were not accurate and I needed to correct the guide.

    The tour of the Jewish Quarter is a must for all visitors to Prague Unfortnately, our guide did not have the knowlege needed to bring this area to life. Ask your guide about the golem if he/she does not offer. The tour was very meaningful in spite of Jon’s inadequacies
