We chose The Naked Tour Guide because of the fantastic reviews we read here at tripadvisor.
The booking was easy and Marcus - the guide and founder of this business - was on time and easy to find, even though he wasn't naked.
Marcus, joint by his assistant Ivan, was friendly, personable and so knowledgeable - we enjoyed his sense of humour and the way he brought his own, sometimes critical comments into the tales of history. We were only 4 people on this tour. Apart from ourselves there was a wonderful American couple and we all had a great day.
These tour guides are no ordinary tour guides. They are academic historians giving you a private tour of Prague - they don't allow more than eight people to a goup. But Marcus is not only a historian who can give you all the details about history and will answer all the questions you may have. In addition to that he is a business man who works very hard to keep his customers happy. He looks out for all opportunities to help you to make your stay in Prague more pleasant - a lot of information about the city, restaurants, transportation, whatever you would like to know. If he cannot give you the exact answer immediately, you will get it by mail within a few hours.
So this is a great way to start your visit of Prague. It is a 3 h tour - but if you really want to have a great experience and the weather is fine join him for a beer (or two or three) at a local beer garden afterwards. We had so much fun with Marcus, the Americans and Ivan ( still a student on our tour, who has become a tour guide himself as we saw in the comments by John L.)
Bring your camera, Marcus will show you the best places to take pictures. Bring an umbrella, just to be on the safe side.
There are only a few Tours/Guides that allow just a small group for each tour like Marcus - of course you can earn more money if you allow 20, 30, 40 or more people on your tour. Compare the prices and you will see "The Naked Tour Guide" has a reasonable fee.
One word of caution: "Free" tours, that you will see advertised a lot, are not free, the guides also have to make a living and do expect a tip.
You will see these large groups everywere - and you will be grateful if you picked the right tour guide!
In summary, we found the comments at tripadvisor about "The Naked Tour Guide" very reliable and I am glad I followed this advice.
This is the reason why I wrote my first tripadviser report today. I hope it will help you as much as the reports I read here.
