Jiri is a wonderful guide whose extensive knowledge brought the history of Prague to life. Because of the unusual heat (over 30 degrees C) , we had asked Jiri to accommodate our needs. He met all of our needs. Thank you Jiri for a great tour. We will be sure to recommend you to others.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I thank you too! Pleasure having you! Jiri

Lonnie DunbierUnited States
Jiri was the best of guides; full of excellent information; fun to be with; on time and provided a very comprehensive tour. I and my companion totally recommend him.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Lonnie! It was joy to have you and Blanny as customers! Jiri
Jiri was just great. He met us at our hotel, gave us a history of Prague and then lead us on a very interesting walking tour of Prague. Jiri took the time to point out not only the well known buildings and sites of Prague, but to give us historical facts and details, as well as point out lesser known elements. We definitely recommend Jiri to anyone coming to Prague.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Dean!
Ellen LipseyUnited States
Jiri was the perfect guide for an introduction to Prague's history and architecture. Before setting out he presented clear maps showing jurisdiction and border changes through many centuries. it was just the right amount of information. We then walked through four current neighborhoods spanning both sides of the river and covering essentials for a first-time visit. Jiri's genuine interest in Prague and people and his generosity sharing from personal experience added to the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ellen! It was a joy to have you in Prague! Jiri
The only complaint about this tour was that I could only give 5 stars and we wanted to give 10. Jiri is the most fantastic guide you could want. So knowledgeable and well informed. He gave us an insight to Prague that we could not have done on our own. He took us off the tourist streets and down some back streets and we saw things that we would have missed by ourselves. We couldn't recommend Jiri highly enough. If you use him he will turn your holiday from ordinary to amazing.
Richard WeiseUnited States
Jiri presented historical background and demonstrated excellent knowledge of the city.
Scott EckertUnited States
Very knowledgeable but did not seem interested in accommodating our need to slow the tour down for us. He seemed to get ahead of us often and get mad when we didn't all hear his comments.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Scott! I am sorry that you see it this way. Perhaps you do not realize that the other couple that you brought with you to the tour was walking rather fast (and I have asked them several times to slow down so you can keep up with them; you may have not even noticed it); it is hard to talk to all four of you when you are often apart from each other. Once again, I am very sorry for your negative experience. Jiri
Lewis MillerUnited States
Very knowledgeable. Jiri had lived in US for a number of years so English was very good. Gave a little history Prague first and then a very informative and interesting tour after.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much, Lewis! Jiri
Charles SmithUnited States

Rebecca ScholtzUnited States
Jiri did and excellent job. He brought to life many places and events that we would never have experienced without his knowledge and firsthand experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a nice evaluation!
William PursellUnited States
Jiri tried very hard to do something, but a long heavy rain completely stymied all his efforts. We hide until awnings and store fronts as he gave us a great history lesson. Soon some of the streets flooded, we were drenched and finally just had to give up. Jiri apologized over and over, as if he could have changed anything. Between his schedule and ours there was no way to reschedule. Mother Nature definitely won this tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Bill! I am glad that you look at the unfortunate situation this way! It was joy having you here in Prague! Sincerely, Jiri
Meeks VaughanUnited States
Superb history overview (covering both Prague and Bohemia/Czechoslovakia/Czech Republic) before the tour made everything we saw more meaningful. Giri shared memorable personal insights from living through Prague Spring and the Russian invasion, then living in USA, then returning to homeland after the Velvet Revolution. I would definitely recommend Giri to visitors and I look forward to using his services next time I return to Prague.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Meeks! Thank you very much for your positive evaluation of my tour; I really appreciate it! It was a joy to meet you and your party here in Prague! Sincerely, Jiri

Jiri's historical knowledge of Prague and the entire region is exceptional and he presented everything in an informative and interesting manner.

We learned a lot of history about the Country, and enjoyed the incredible beauty of the city. There were huge crowds which affected the speed at which we could move, therefore we could not quite finish the complete tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you! Jiri
Wear your running shoes! Jiri knows Prague and speaks excellent English. He will want to pack a lot in three and half hours.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you!
This review is 3 months late. Forgive me Jiri! He was like a Father to me, he guided me thru & made me learn the Important Things of Prague's history, culture & more. He was patient with me as I kept stopping for Photographs & Videos of myself Hahha! But he would remind me in a fatherly manner to hurry or we will miss out other places . Jiri knows the History of Prague and that's swell !!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Roberto! Jiri
Mary Anne MahinUnited States
We had an excellent with Jiri. When he met up with us he took the time to talk about the history of the country and explain the city so we had an overview of the territory we would cover during our tour. Prague is so walkable and we were glad we had chosen a walking tour. Jiri was knowledgeable and we were appreciative of the description of the sights and the history. We ended by eating at a local restaurant which was his recommendation and was delicious.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your positive evaluation! It was a joy to have you as customers! Jiri

Andrew HahnUnited States
Jiri was interesting, knowledgeable, cheerful and personable. Our group of six all enjoyed the tour. Jiri is fluent in English, articulate, and easy to understand. He began in our hotel dining area with a brief overview of history and geography which was very useful. He listened attentively to questions and gave comprehensive answers, and extended our tour by a half hour. He was recovering from a stomach bug but you wouldn't have known it by the effort he gave. Great tour and great guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Andy! It was a joy to do a business with you as well! Greetings to all! Jiri

Susan MoffatUnited States
Thanks to Jiri for a fun, thorough and amazing tour. We were able to learn the history, experience the sites and take in some local culture (food, shops, experiences) all under his guidance. It was not just the hours we spent but his desire to share his culture - and insights into more things to do on our own time that made our trip. We will forever remember our day with Jiri!

Vidyasagar PremkumarUnited States
We were a group of 12, consisting of adults and kids, arranged a prague walking tour. We agreed that 5.5 hours is needed to get a good introduction. The overall pace was very good and we saw all the things planned. We visited the Cprague castle, vitus cathedral, charles bridge, old town square, wencelas square and the jewish quarter. We ended our trip at an authentic restaurant near the jewish quarter. Jiri knowledge and explanation was terrific. I will recommend Jiri highly
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Vidya! Greetings to all of you, guys! Jiri
Larry WinchesterUnited States
Outstanding guide to Prague and in particular the castle. He was accommodating of our limited walking ability as well. His background in the USA is helpful for Americans but being a native Czech he provided a most detailed tour and addressed all of our questions and more. You should add a sixth star for Jiri.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Larry! Thank you very much for your and your wife's business! I enjoyed your company very much! It makes me feel much better if someone considers my tour a pleasant and enjoyable experience! Sincerely, Jiri

Jiri is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about the history of his city.

It was a most enjoyable tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your positive evaluation of my services, Harriet! I really enjoyed your and Randy's company! Jiri

Michelle BrowningUnited States
Jiri was awesome. He walks fast so beware, but that way you really get to see the city and even participate in the culture. Jiri's quick history lesson in the beginning really helps as you understand and envision Prague through the many stages of the culture. After our tour with Jiri, we went back and did almost the exact same walking tour again. It was great!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Michelle! Thank you for your positive evaluation of our tour! I really appreciate it! It had been a pleasure to show you our beautifull place and enjoying the company of both of you! Sincerely, Jiri C. in Prague
Tamara DensmoreUnited States
Jiri rocks! My 17 year old daughter and I spent the morning on a walking tour with him. My daughter is a real skeptic of tours but loved it. in a few short hours, he made the city understandable and easily accessible for us. Now we can really enjoy our remaining time in the Prague. On our walk through the old town this morning I saw hordes of tourists following single tour guides and now really appreciate what a wonderful value Jiri is.

Jiri met us, as promised, at our hotel. He then gave us an overview of Prague and the highlights he would cover during the tour. He knows EVERYTHING about Prague. He was great. Answered every question we had about the sights and history of this beautiful city. Jiri had lived in the U.S. for 40 years before returning to his beloved city. We got a thorough tour so that we could navigate the city on our own for the rest of our trip. Highest recommendation!

Craig ShermanUnited States
Jiri is experienced and informative. We had a delightful and too short (our own fault, because we were late) tour of the major highlights of Prague, which was perfect for allowing us to figure out the places that we wanted to come back to visit in greater depth later. He lived in the US for years, so his English and knowledge of America is excellent, which helps provide him insight that others would not be able to provide. Highly recommended.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Craig! Thank you so much for your great feelings regarding my guiding services! I really appreciate your positive opinion! It had been a pleasure to have you here in Prague! Sincerely, Jiri in Prague

Diana MartoneUnited States
Jiri was very friendly and intuitive. We arranged to meet him at our hotel which was 2-3 miles from the palace which was to be the starting point of our tour. He had the forethought to purchase bus passes for us since we had no idea where to do this. Our tour walked around the palace, down through Old Town, across the St. Charles bridge, over to the Astrological Clock to watch it's hourly performance, and ending at the beginning of Wenceslas Square. Jiri provided lots of great info along the tour.
Rachel PullingUnited States

Richard MeyerUnited States
Jiri was wonderful and very accommodating. He suggested we split our tour into two days due weather issues. That worked so well. He is knowledgeable, personable and absolutely right on time. He offered more than promised and we would definitely contact him again and refer him to other travelers. Having lived in the States for many years, he really understands the cultural differences and it was fascinating to discuss the history of Prague and the Czech Republic with him. We thoroughly enjoyed Jiri!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Richard! It was pleasure to meet you and your wife! Jiri
Bernie TobinHalf Moon Bay, CALIFORNIA, United States
Jiri was fantastic. He was accommodating when we asked to schedule the tour at 17:00 and was there right on time. Over the next 3 hours, he walked us through the most important sights of the city and gave us excellent history and advice for exploring the city further on our own. His English is immaculate and he was a gentleman in every way.
