We had an excellent experience with Private Prague Guide Day Tours. The tour company has been in business for years and offered highly professional and personalized service. Jay Pest, the owner and a tour guide himself, set up two tours for my husband and I.

The first tour was a Czech-Saxony Switzerland 10-hour day trip. Premysl Voska was our guide and he was excellent. Prem is the utmost professional tour guide – prompt, personable and extremely knowledgeable. His car was spacious and clean, and he is an excellent driver. He shared his knowledge of Czech Republic history, culture, as well as fascinating insight into life under communism versus present day. As other reviewers mentioned, Prem is especially good at setting the pace to suit your needs and suggesting changes or additions to the itinerary based on your particular interests. We had a terrific day with Prem and I would highly recommend him.

For the second tour Jay was our tour guide. This was a tour from Prague to the Bone Church in Kutna Hora. Jay made for such a pleasant day. He’s everything you want in a tour guide - friendly, informative, and attentive. It was like having a friend take us around in the Czech Republic. Jay has excellent knowledge of European history – so we learned a great deal – and the restaurant he selected for lunch was a terrific choice. It was a great day with Jay and I highly recommend him as a tour guide.

Both off these tours had well-thought-out itineraries to unique Czech areas and attractions and excellent lunch stops. Jay was an absolute pleasure to work with in organizing the tours and he and Prem were both excellent guides. It was a great experience all around - I would highly recommend Private Prague Guide Day Tours.

We saw Viktor in the Square near the Tower with the Astronomical Clock, holding up a sign above his head saying "GUIDE". He is a local guy with a beard. We had a fantastic time, his knowledge about Prague and Czech Rep is exceptional. He is not some foreign uni student, he is a local who lived through the Communist rule. For about 3 hours Viktor will take you one a journey through the alley ways of Prague and give detailed account of the past. He will answer all your questions and also tell you about some great places to visit.

Jay Pesta was on time as he picked us up at the hotel, well prepared, innovatively solved problems, and was an excellent interpreter on a day trip I had arranged to my mother-in-law's birth home in a village about 50 miles from Prague. We spent the majority of the day there meeting with residents of the area and touring the town that my mother-in-law's family had left in 1910. Jay was flexible when we encountered a road blockage due to an accident of several trucks and found an alternate route to our destination. Afterwards we visited Hora Kutna, a silver mining town and World Heritage site. As I planned this trip, Jay worked with me to understand time, distances, and helped me arrange a personalized tour. Highly recommend.

We recently toured Cesky Krumlov with Prem from Private Prague guide. He was professional, knowledgeable and very personable. He arrived on time at our hotel in a very comfortable, very clean car. He told us about everything we saw on the drive to Cesky Krumlov. Once in Cesky Krumlov, Prem shared a great deal of knowledge about the area and what we were seeing. He even suggested a stop on the way back to Prague to take in another beautiful castle. Prem was a wonderful guide and when we return to the area, we will certainly contact him for another tour.

We originally arranged for 2 days with tour split left bank and right bank. But our unexpected delays first day caused us to do combined 6 hours on the second day. Our guide Dagmar was excellent. And we appreciated her flexibility since we created timing problems. Because the weather was much better this day we felt lucky to have adjusted the schedule. I highly recommend Private Prague day Tours. The owner Jay was very helpful in scheduling (and re-scheduling) our tour and the cost was extremely low. Overall we were extremely pleased. Excellent guide and excellent experience.
