Hello- I wanted to send you a quick note to say thank you for the great tour yesterday. We learned a great deal about the history of Prague and it was tailored to what we were interested in.

The tour guide has apparently been doing this for 9 years, but you can tell that he still loves his job. He was able to keep the attention if our whole family, even my 13 year old twins- no easy task!

Thank you for a great day- and kudos to the guide.

Warm regards.

Dear Sir/Madam,

 

I think my sister may have been in contact with regards to Jan, our walking tour guide on Friday of last week.

 

I just wanted to say how much we valued and enoyed Jan's enthusiasm and knowledge on this tour. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I would appreciate if this could be fed back to Jan directly.

 

 

Yours Moyra Richardson

Dear Jitka,

Linda and I totally enjoyed your company in Prague and your wonderful Classical Music tour. We also enjoyed your singing. You have such a pretty voice. Prague turned out to be one of our favorite cities of all cities we visited.

Don't forget to notify us whenever you come to visit the United States and I will give you a tour. Best regards to you.

Jitka and Vendu,

We had a great time. I will send you a link to some more photos but have enclosed the team picture. The chapel photos are lovely.

I will post a report on Tripadvisor soon. Thank you for the interesting tour. None of us wanted it to end.

Many Thanks

Dear Jan
It was October 7 2012 that you guided me and a dairy farmer from New Zealand through the some of the history and streets of Prague and those few hours remain the highlight of my week in your great city.  What you said helped me to understand the significance of what I had seen and heard during the week before--and it whetted my appetitie to learn more about Prague since 1939 and Prague and the rest of Europe since 1989.
Thank you.

Dear Jitka,

We really enjoyed spending time with you while you showed us Prague from a local's perspective with all the details and insight we would not have gotten from anyone else.

 

We really enjoyed the tour of the Jewish Quarter with Carolina.

 

We will tell all our friends and family about your walking tours.

 

Thanks again,

Hello,

This past week my family and I were in Prague for a vacation.  While there we did some of the walking tours.  Initially we were planning to do some of the tours offered by a different group (the one using white umbrellas), however they never seemed to show up at the times listed in their brochure.  I asked one of your tour guides if she had seen this other group – she was very courteous and helpful, rather than ignore my request for information even though it was for a different company.

This helpfulness was remembered the next day when we returned to the Old Town Square and once again the white umbrella people were not there. So I went over to the cream coloured umbrella and asked what tours she offered, and we decided to do a Prague Castle tour with her.  This young woman was from Prague Walks, and our whole family was very impressed with the tour.  We learned so much on that walk, and were so impressed with both the depth of knowledge of the guide as well as with her genuine and friendly way of interacting with us.  We were impressed enough to want to do another tour the following day with her.

The following day we did the Jewish Quarter tour – we had such an excellent tour the day before we hoped our expectations weren’t too high for this subsequent tour.  We needn’t have been concerned, the second tour was just as great as the first. Again we learned so much, and enjoyed the pleasant way your tour guide led this walk.

Later in the day some members of our family did a World War II walk with a different group (only since your company doesn’t offer that walk).  My son has a strong interest in the history of Europe in the 20th century and especially the Second World War – this is why we went on this walking tour.  This tour also gave us something to compare with the tours offered by your company.  While the World War II tour was decent and informative the guide was not of the same calibre as the young woman from your company.  That tour cost us much more money than either of the tours from your company and yet we feel we got much more enjoyment and value from your tours.

So I wanted to write this email to say thank you for your company’s tours, we were very impressed and would recommend them to anyone!  I plan to submit a positive review to Trip Advisor, but I also wanted to pass our compliments on directly to you and the people involved in your company.  If I had any suggestion to offer it would simply be to have your brochures in the main tourist information office – we did not find any of your brochures in the racks in that office.

Finally would your please pass on to the young woman who led our tours, I believe her name is Inga.  Please tell her our sincere thanks and appreciation.  Our time inPrague was enhanced greatly by the two walking tours we took with her.

Dear Jitka,
 
I am one of the four Americans who was with you on the Grand Walk this past Sunday
and I wanted to thank you for showing to us the lovely city of Prague.  I have been
on a dozen of the tours offered by "London Walks" and on several given by "Paris
Walks", each of which was truly memorable. But being shown around Prague by someone
who lives there and who has lived through its very recent past made the walk
particularly meaningful and it has become my favorite walk of all.  I hope to return
in May and to then see more of the Czech Republic with you and the other guides.
 
Sincerely,
 
Mark Schmelz  (USA)

Just back from Prague and the highlight of the trip was the jazz crawl with Jitka. We visited some of the famous Prague jazz clubs and also some that only a Prague insider would know. Jitka is very connected with the Prague music scene and she knows her jazz. We also enjoyed chatting with Jitka as we moved from club to club, she is 100% Czech and we learned a lot from her. A great night was had by all.

Dobrý den.

Chtěla jsem Vám moc poděkovat za Vaše nabízené služby. Moji přátelé z Kalifornie, kterým jste minulý týden zajistili procházku Prahou byli doslova nadšeni! V úterý večer jsme se s nimi viděli a jim úplně zářili oči! Byli unešeni z průvodce, který byl jak kniha, nechápali jak si někdo tolik informací snad o každé budově kterou mine vůbec může zapamatovat, taky velmi ocenili že cestou byla legrace, Vaše služby můžu opravdu jen a jen doporučovat!!

Ještě jednou Vám strašně moc děkuji že jste mým hostům dokázali Prahu ukázat v celé své kráse.

Dear Mr. Placek,

I wanted to write a note to thank you for the wonderful tour you gave my
brother and his wife, Jeff and Jeanne from St. Louis, Missouri, earlier this
month in your beautiful city of Prague. I took them on a two week tour of
many cities in Europe, but your tour of Prague was by far their favorite
memory.

Living in Germany, I had already visited Prague once and decided I didn't
need to go on the walking tour with them.I now regret my decision. After
your tour, they were truly fascinated by the stories you told of Prague and
its history. I will never forget the joy they felt after visiting such a
remarkable city and learning all about it from you. I will definitely be
back to Prague some day with more friends and family and will be sure to
request a tour by you.

Thank you so much for all your hard work on that very warm day.we really
appreciate it and wish you all the best.

Sincerely,

Mitchell Dixon

We would like to say thank you to Tadeas. We took the 3 1/2 hours tour today. It was really great not only to know about the history also the background information about the architecture. The walk is great and it was a pleasure for us to listen to him.

Unfortunately we could not book the long tour because of our time schedule.

Thanks again to Tadeas and to the tour operator.

This morning, August 28, we were given a walking tour on Czech Communism by Tom, at 1100. It was superlative. Tom, a History Major, knew an enormous amount, and was more than willing to depict events during the period. He described historical happenings as well as personal incidents from his family and others, with great clarity and detail We could have spent all day with him! It was a wonderful tour, and we wish to congratulate Tom, and you for hiring him! Digna and Andrew Gantt, Wingina, VA, USA

Dear Jitka,

I felt I must drop you a line to say how much we enjoyed our tour with Kate Lebova. She really was exceptional and was the highlight of our stay in Prague. She was so knowledgeable and was able to answer all of our questions, no matter how diverse!!

I have passed on to my contact at the Four Seasons how professional and friendly she was and have recommended both Kate and your company to them for their guests.

Once again, please pass on our thanks to Kate - she is a credit to your company.

 

With kind regards,

Dear Jitka,

I want to thank you for providing us with Jana for our Grand Tour Deluxe in Prague. My parents and I have visited Italy, Greece, France, Turkey, Switzerland, Germany, and Austria. Out of all the tour guides we have experienced, Jana has been the best. She is extremely knowledgeable about Prague and made us very comfortable in Prague. Her ability to express herself in the English language is remarkable. Her historical knowledge about Prague is fantastic. Thanks again for providing our family with such a beautiful guide and tour. Jana’s tour was one of the highlights of our European trip.

Dear Jitka,
after our really beautiful weekend in Prague, I like to thank you for the great events, you organized for us. The members of the beer-tour and the designer-tour were totally happy, about the tour and the great guides. The evening at folklore garden was also great fun. Although the music was too loud, we passed a great time with the dancings and naturally the group was pleased, when someone of them has to dance with the broom, etc. The meal was also very tasty, we get the fish meals and the vegetarian meal without any problems. Also the ghost tour was fun. Unfortunately the groups were to big to become really frightend, but we enjoyed the stories and the top event of the tour was, when the "Turkish" lost his trouser, while passing the group. Surely that isn't the main sense of the ghost tour, but the most important thing was, that the group loved it, isn't it?
So thank you very much, also in the name of the whole group and I am sure that most of us will return to Prague in the next years.

Yours Bärbel

Last saturday we decided to go on one of your tours `Pubs of the old Town' our guide was Yaroslav. We were a party of four and had a fantastic time, the pubs chosen were excellent but more than this we all were so grateful for Yaroslav who was an amazing guide. I know that he was quite new to the walks and was even a little bit nervous when we started but I very much doubt that our night would have been as good without him. We went to some fantastic places and desite a few hiccups along the way, not due to our guide I hasten to say, we had a great night in Prague. Thank you for the walk and thank you for Yaroslav, he is worth his weight in gold.
Prague is without doubt the most beautiful city I have ever visited and I have visited many, I just thought that you may like to know that our visit was enhanced greatly by booking this walk with your company. I hope that many other visitors to your beautiful city take advantage of your fantastic walks.
Thank you again to you and please relay mine and our groups thanks to Yaroslav, he is a star.
Very best wishes from England

Dear Jitka

You probably do not remember me but I am the tall English girl who studied politics. You took me on the communism walk on my own. I am just writing to say a big thank you for your walk, I really enjoyed it. I think Joseph - your guide - is such an inspirational man, I learnt so much from your walk and enjoyed telling my parents all about it!

Prague is such a beautiful city and I loved my holiday there!

Best wishes,

Hi There,
My name is Michael Interisano, from Calgary, Alberta Canada.  My wife Bari and I went on one of your English pub walks in Prague this past Sept. and had a great time.  We would like to thank Tom (our guide) for a very entertaining, fun and educational night of beer, food and conversation.  I wanted to send this photo of our fun night earlier, but was very busy with my business when we returned from your beautiful country.  Bari and I cycled from Prague to Vienna and enjoyed our route and the villages we visited while making our way to Vienna...
 
Ciao,

I am writing to say how much my partner and I enjoyed the Communism Walk starting at 2.00pm Friday October 13th. 2006. We were very sorry we had to leave the walk in a rush as it was reaching its conclusion in Wenceslas Square as we had a plane to catch!
Please convey my apologies and thanks to the gentleman who led our walk. It was a most illuminating experience made all  the more interesting by the lively account of his actual experiences.

It's been a while but in march 2004 I organised with fellow students a trip to Prague. We were all filmstudents back then so I was looking for a company that could organise a tour in Prague that took us along locations where famous film were shot. A second criteria was the fact that the guide had to have some interesting things to tell. It al worked fantastic. The guide took us along locations in Prague where movies like Mission Impossible 1, The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Bad Company, The Bourne Identity en Blade 2 were shot. The guide was well informed, brought great photos with her and had fun 'behind the scenes' stories to tell.
You, as the organisation of Prague Walks, understood very well that we weren't looking for a regular tour were we would learn about this king that did some very important things in day no one hardly remembers or learn about a church that is 200 years old.
Next year, in the first weekend of march I'm going to be in Prague again. This time with friends from Gotcha! Cinema were we all work. So it seemed a great idea to me to do the 'filmtour' again.
I would love to hear from you again. Could you keep me posted?

Our tour of Prague Castle and the Modern Walk was truly first class. Both guides, Eva and Joseph, were extremely intelligent and fun. Their personal backgrounds and experiences contributed to their knowledge and the information shared to our small group. That personal touch makes the experience that much more enlightening. We feel so lucky to have gotten them as our guides and want to thank them both for making our visit so memorable.
We will definitely recommend your company to friends.

I just wanted you to know how much Rollin and I enjoyed our visit to Prague and, particularly, meeting Jana Pehe. Jana made our visit very memorable. We could not have asked for a better guide. She was very knowledgeable, pleasant, easy to understand and seemed to know what would be of interest to us. Be assured that, whenever the opportunity arises, we will tell our friends of our visit and of your company.

My wife and I went on two of your walks in Prague and enjoyed them very much.
Please say thank you to Joseph for the incredible length of time he gave us on the Architecture tour and the amount of information he had. We were the only two people on his tour on Tuesday afternoon (March 1st) and our names are Chris & Dot and we are English.
On the Wednesday (March 2nd) we took the 'Jewish Quarter and Old Town' tour with Oria (maybe the spelling is completely wrong) who is a masters Student who visited England recently. We were on the walk with 7 Americans. Please thank her for an excellent walk and wish her good luck with her degree.

I had the great pleasure of taking several of you walk recently.
On September 23, 2005, I took the Grand Walk De Lux. The guide was a wonderful young lady, a student, that was knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining. I wish that I had asked for her email address!
The food was tasty and plentiful. A great value.
On September 24, 2005, I took the Modern Walk-Life in Communism, Life Today, Velvet Revolution Tour. The tour guide, an older gentlemen, brought the tour to life--he even had a picture of himself as a child with his father and the Soviet Liberators in the Second World War era! He was very personable, knowledgeable and eager to answer all of my questions.
I found the Prague Walks experience to be delightful - a great learning experience! I would recommend Prague Walks to any traveler!
