Prague, Praha, Czech Republic

Pozdravy z Prahy! (Greetings from Prague!) My name is Ljuba (or Luba or Lyuba - there are several ways to spell it).

Translated, my name means "love", and I would like to wish you a very warm welcome to the Golden City!

I started working as a tour guide in Prague in 1994, when I was still a student. Communism had just barely ended and foreign - especially western - tourists were becoming a more common sight. Much has changed since then, but I still enjoy sharing my love of Prague with visitors from all over the world.

I specialize in Jewish tours due to my family heritage, but I've been doing this job for long enough now that I'm happy to show you any aspect of Prague you're most interested in.

My two decades of experience have given me deep insight into the many hidden gems this city has to offer - gems less-experience guides might not be familiar with. After working for so many years with tourists, I know that your time in a foreign city is valuable and limited. My job is to ensure that you get the most out of your visit - not just rushing through the sites. I pride myself not only on being a professional but also on providing great personal attention to all of my customers. Those who come on my tours leave Prague with a feeling that they are not only my clients but my friends as well.

I have guided people from all walks of life, from politicians and movie stars to the backpacking student traveling on a budget. I offer both standard introductory tours for people who've never been here before and specialist packages for those interested in some specific aspect of Prague's history or culture. I can also make tailor-made tours on any part of Prague you would like to see.

Tours are what I specialize in, but thanks to the vast network of connections that I've built up over the years, I can also plan and book your entire trip, from airport transfers to hotel reservations and event tickets - I do it all!

If you buy something in a store that turns out to be defective, you can easily get a refund. But if you buy a bad tour, it's so much more than money that is thrown away - your travel time is wasted and you leave with a bad feeling. This is why I do my very best to give you the highest quality tour possible so that your memories of Prague will be only positive.

Thank you for visiting my profile and I look forward to showing you around this beautiful city and country!

S přátelským pozdravem (Kind regards),

P. S. If you would like to see more of my beautiful city, please look at the photographs on my profile for just a small taste of what is to come when you visit Prague.

A Recent Review of this guide

We really enjoyed our tour that focused on WWII, specifically on Operation Anthropoid. Everything was perfectly organized from the pick-up at the hotel to the in-depth explanations at every sight and the final drop off. The van, specifically for guided tours, had large windows and very comfortable seats and added greatly to the comfort of the tour. Ljuba is a knowledgeable guide that is very professional, thoughtful (added extra visits that took us away from the usual tourist sites) and kind.
