The Prague Jewish Quarter tour with Ljuba gave us a much more in depth look at the history - social, literary and historic - of Prague than just doing a general tour. My traveling companion and I agreed that it was a tour we would recommend to anyone - Jewish or not - visiting the city for the first time. We picked Ljuba because of her obvious love and passion for this part of the Prague's past. It was the right decision and we had an intense several hours with her walking through the Jewish Ghetto.

We are so lucky to have found Ljuba and hired her for a personal tour of Prague's Jewish Quarter. She has an Ocean of knowledge and shares personal stories to bring the Jewish history to life. We had more than enough time to get acquainted with each Synagogue and learn its historical significance and see the beautiful artifacts. We highly recommend Ljuba and thank her for a wonderful tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Mitch, I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed your time in Prague! It was a pleasure to tour your around and show you all of the deep Jewish history in the city. I hope to see you back someday! -Ljuba

My husband and I spent 3 days in Prague in April. Our stay in Prague was greatly enhanced as we were fortunate to have a fabulous guide - Ljuba P. She is a delight and possesses encyclopedic knowledge of the city! She brought the history of the city to life by conveying it in an interesting and enthusiastic way. I wish I could give Ljuba 10 stars because she deserves every one!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Stuart, thank you so much for such a lovely review. It was honestly my pleasure to guide you around Prague and I would be more than happy to show you some new locations if you choose to return to the Czech Republic in the future. Ljuba

Ljuba was extremely knowledgeable and gave us a thorough tour of the Jewish Quarter. She was clear in conveying important and interesting information, and very professional. We were a group of 4 including myself, my husband and my daughter and son, who are in their 20's. I think we all benefited from Ljuba's knowledge and expertise, making our visit that much richer.

Gary RathCuster, SD, United States
We substituted the Prague Jewish Quarter tour for a tour of Melnik Castle. On our way to the castle Ljuba stopped in the Jewish Quarter and gave us a mini tour and a nice explanation of the area. Melnik Castle was very nice. It's location over the juncture of 2 rivers was beautiful and we opted for a wine tasting in the Castle cellars. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the wines and the tasting was hosted by a wine expert from the Castle.

Ljuba has so much information tucked into her head and knows how to present it in such an interesting way. We would highly recommend her tours. She loves her city and tells about it both informationally and humorously.
Ljuba was a very knowledgable and friendly guide. We covered a lot of territory but she did not rush us at all. Would recommend her to all as a guide.

Morris Fine85750, United States
Ljuba was an outstanding guide for the Jewish quarter. She overflowed with knowledge about each of the places we visited. Her clear explanations of everything we saw were thorough, informative and laced with humor. You don't have to be Jewish to understand and appreciate the stories she told. Every word, custom, and tradition came alive with her telling. We started the tour feeling depressed that so many Jews had been murdered, but we ended by feeling uplifted and hopeful, thanks to this terrific guide.
Milton GedallovichUnited States
Wonderful tours. I will highly reccomend Lluba any time. Had a wonderful time and got very useful information and information on each site I would have never known. Milton Gedallovich from the US.
David SchachterUnited States
Ljuba took us on a tour through the Jewish section of Prague on October 14, 2010. She personalized the tour in many respects, and provided historical, architectural, demographic, etc., perspectives, affording us a better understanding of the Jewish history of Prague through the ages. She has a vast knowledge of the community and is most highly recommended. Our 3-hour tour, which went almost 30 minutes overtime, passed very quickly. An extremely informative tour and tourguide.
