Ljuba was just fabulous. She went the extra mile, really listened to our interests and tailored the tour to us. She was incredibly knowledgeable after so many years of doing this. She is also very fit and took us to places you needed to walk and climb a bit - that was our interest but I know she would be flexible and incorporate any input. She is also extremely charming and fun and friendly, recommended wonderful restaurants for lunches and dinners, and made sure we were securely on the boat. Five stars!

Completed the Full Day General Prague Tour with Ljuba. She is a phenomenal tour guide with a wealth of knowledge and experience. Our hotel pick-up was prompt with a spacious van that easily accommodated our group of five. Every expectation was met in a professional manner and Ljuba made certain that our interests were woven into the tour itinerary. The period between the morning and afternoon segments gave pause for a relaxing and enjoyable lunch at an authentic Czech restaurant.

Re tour for LaGue and Rudolph company. 5 stars! Tour guide spoke good English. She was careful to keep the group together and involved. And she was extremely knowledgeable about the city, the country and the history. We all learned a lot from her and she was able to show us a huge amount of the attractions of the city in just one day. Kathie and Marty LaGue
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for the great review! I am so glad that you enjoyed the tour and I hope to see you back in Prague some day!! Ljuba

Ljuba could not have been more wonderful. She was full of information and her personality was so delightful. We could not have been more pleased.

I would give Ljuba the highest number for all categories. We spent our first day in Prague with her and it was evident from the start that she loved her country and city and wanted to share it with others. Her knowledge was encyclopedic and we covered many areas of the city in addition to going to the mall so I could buy a much needed rain jacket. It was a very memorable pleasant fun day!

Ljuba is passionate about Prague and it shows! She did a great job of logistics, moulding the tour to fit our large group on the fly. Very impressed as any minor glitches didn't phase her, she was a true professional! She could talk incessantly about any topic. She was very engaging and we highly recommend her!

Ljuba was one of the best guides we have ever had. Her knowledge of Prague was encyclopedic and she conveyed it in a interesting and, sometimes, humorous way. I would highly recommend her as a guide.
We were a party of four and Ljuba was our tour guide and as well organized everything for us. The transfers from and back to the airport were most efficient. Our tours in Prague were over two days, one day each side of the river which turned out to be a very good suggestion. Ljuba was most knowledgeable, patient and helpful and our driver couldn't have been better. I will certainly recommend Tours By Locals to my friends and when visiting other cities will be sure to use you Thank Ljuba and your organizat

The Prague Castle area was spectacular. Ljuba gave us a great tour and her knowledge of the city, and area, is impressive. She took us to an Abbey where we toured a most impressive library and viewed artifacts donated by visitors throughout many years. The library was very night on our list of the best of Prague.
Richard VernickUnited States
One of the best guides we have ever had. Extremely knowledgeable on every subject we broached. Very concerned with giving us full value for our tour. Used every minute efficiently. Can not say enough good things about Ljuba.

Suzanne McMahonUnited States
Knowledgeable but poorly dressed (blue jeans). We asked for a local non touristy place for lunch but were taken to Cafe Mozart by the Astronomical clock, one of the main tourist attractions in Prague. 2 bus loads of people sat down right after we did. As a result, service was very poor. The maitre d' told us this is standard for this restaurant. The guide should have known and taken us elsewhere. But she was probably getting a kickback.this was most disappointing to us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sorry to hear that you did not enjoy the restaurant I chose for lunch. Please know that I don't receive a kickback - it was just a strategically located, decent restaurant that provided a convenient stop at a good time for our tour. It wasn't busy when we first arrived - unfortunately a convention of dentists arrived shortly after we did. In future, I'll make sure to arrange a smaller, more local restaurant experience.
TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: We were surprised to see this rating as Ljuba's reviews for the past 6 years are all 5 star. We disagree that blue jeans are inappropriate attire and confirm no kickbacks were involved. We've spoken to both Ljuba and Ms. McMahon and found they were late starting - Ljuba was outside the hotel while the travelers were in the lobby. This 15 minute delay no doubt contributed to a bad start. We've asked Ljuba to contact her travelers the evening before the tour in order to confirm the meeting location.

One of best days with guide who was personable and knowledgable. She took my wish list and in course of day saw most interesting places in Prague. Also ensured I was at right place at right time (change of Presidential Guard, seated in window seat for lunch at Mozart Hotel restaurant across from Astrological clock which chimed twice before the end of lunch).
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Jeffrey!You brought me such great memories! Thank you very much! Happy New Year!

Ljuba was a gem. She has the knowledge and personality to make a long day fun and interesting. I would recommend her to family and friends. When we come again she will be at the top of our guide list.
Camille G.United States
Lubja was a fantastic guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and quick to modify her itinerary to suit our plans. Her depth of knowledge was astounding in every area. We do not think could have seen as much nor learned everything that we did with any other guide. She was fabulous. She was a wealth of suggestions as to additional sites to see and places to eat. Awesome guide and we will certainly book her when we return to Prague. One of the most professional guides we have ever used.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much,it was a pleasure to be with you!!Looking forward to the next visit!!Wishing you all the very best!!
