We highly recommend our guide Alena Pribanova who we booked through Personal Prague Guide - Private Day Tours on our recent visit to Prague. We divided the tour into two four hours sessions over two days - starting with a driving tour (with lots of stops along the way) the first day and a walking tour of the old part of town and the Jewish District, the second day. Alena was so knowledgeable about the history of the city as well as current events and enthusiastically answered all of our many questions. She tailored the tours to our interests and was generous with her recommendations about things to do and see while visiting Prague. We'd highly recommend Alena and Personal Prague Guide - Private Day Tours if you are visiting Prague.

We booked 2 half day tours with your company for June 3rd and 4th 2014. We had the great fortune to have Jana Horovska both days. We were extremely pleased with the level of service provided. Jana was prompt, courteous and extremely knowledgeable. We looked forward to our time with her, as it was extremely informative and never hurried. In our short time together we absorbed much history and culture about the people of the Czech Republic and gained a good appreciation of the city of Prague. We were very pleased, and plan to recommend your company to any friends or family whose travels might take them to Europe.

Please thank Jana for us personally! We really enjoyed meeting her.
To answer your questions:
How did our emailing communication work for you? - Awesome! Our phones and iPads always got your information. So we knew everything was set and ready to go. No misunderstandings. We appreciated all the information upfront regarding places of interests, things to do, restaurants, etc. this was a good way to differentiate your company. Also appreciated the background info on our guide in advance, as it makes everything more personal in understanding her and her background.

How did you like your tour? - Totally Awesome. We enjoyed all the walking and sites that were so readily accessible. Jana was also helpful on public transit during our time to take advantage of the distances between old town and the castles at the top of the hill.

What can you say about your guide or driver? Jana was perfect! She was so knowledgeable, helpful, informative, and just so friendly. When initially meeting Jana in the hotel, we spent about 20 minutes reviewing the city map and also the handout on the history and different time periods....which was extremely helpful. We enjoyed getting her insight on the history of your country and her viewpoints on politics and policies today. Our driver who picked us up at the train station was prompt, friendly and provided nice transportation to the hotel, after a long train ride from Vienna.

Any idea, what can we improve? You are very customer focused, your quality of drivers and guides is superb. One of the most helpful pieces of information was your brochure of the different time periods...it was extremely helpful to better understand Prague and it's relationship with aristocracies, monarchs , etc throughout. Your city map was also extremely helpful and we had it with us everywhere we went.

My husband, son, and I spent two lovely days in the heart of Prague with our charming and talented new friend, Krystof! Personal Prague Guide was amazing to work with. We booked our tour via email after reading other reviews, and Jana responded promptly to our request. She even sent a bio of Krystof, our amazing guide, so we would know a little about him before we met. Krystof was amazing. He was able to accomplish our request to see both the major sites and a more local side of Prague. We seamlessly went between major landmarks and history to hidden gems of art and architecture we would never have found on our own. His love and knowledge of medieval history kept our ten year old son enraptured. Krystof would grin and look at our son and ask "Want to hear another bloody story?" Our son, as is to be expected of a ten year old boy, would nod an emphatic "Yes!" Our only complaint is the fun had to end. We will return to Prague again, and will look to work with Personal Prague Guide, and more importantly, Krystof again. Thank you for bringing the rich history of Prague to life for my family!

We booked Personal Prague Guide as we knew very little about Prague and the Czech Republic. If you have never been here or are even thinking about it, make Prague a definite stop. Although you can get by without a personal guide, I would highly recommend Personal Prague Guide. They were incredible, from Lenka, communicating and working with us on our tight budget, all the way to Alena showing us around. If possible request, Alena as she is extremely knowledgeable about Czech history and is also well travelled. It was like hanging out with a friend of a friend, not a tour guide. She was also flexible as we ran behind due to some heavy rains and she worked with us to reschedule our booked time. If you have a small group, the personal Prague tour makes so much sense, as they find out what you like and work out a personalized itinerary, especially if your time is limited. In fact, Alena gave us coupons that saved us a few bucks.

I booked two tours for four of us with Lenka. Lenka arrived promptly at our hotel and gave us some history of the Czech Republic and then discussed with us where we would like to go on both days.
She spoke perfect English, but she also speaks Spanish, Czech, French and I think another language. We planned our days. Our first day was walking- 4 hours --and I think that is enough to cover in one day. The second day we went to the Prague Castle by tram and she was really helpful with all of the transfers. We had an incident on the 2nd day and she spent an extra 3 hours with us to help resolve it, and then didn't want any money for the extra 3 hours! It is really helpful to have a small group of 2,3 or 4 people on a tour. I saw many tours with 20-30 people on them, and navigating through crowds is difficult.
