Travel writer, Rick Steves, singled out Katerina in one of his books, and she deserves his praise. Our two days with her were a personalized trip through Prague's 1,200 year march toward a brighter today. From Good King Wenseslas, to the Velvet Revolution, and everything in between, she laid out an entertaining narrative about who did what, why it mattered, and what came next. Intelligent and highly educated, Katerina turns history, art, and architecture into a story rather than a lecture. Two thumbs up.
Russell Ferretti-HoyleUnited States
Katerina is wonderful! Both informative and engaging, she brought the Jewish district to life and taught us a great deal about the Czech Republic, life under communism, and the vast history of the tribes in the area. With a PhD in Anthropology, she truly know her stuff! I highly recommend this tour—and would book others from her, too. If you're headed to Prague, contact Katerina to find out all she can show you—and teach you—about this amazing city!
Robert SomervilleUnited States
Katerina was amazing and if you get to Prague and want to learn about the city she is the one person you need to get in touch with. She really gives a great tour and by the end of the time with her you really know about the city and a lot of it's history. My wife and I both felt that this was an amazing walking tour and would recommend it to anyone that is going to Prague.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Rob and Sara, for your nice wrods! I am happy to hear you enjoyed your stay here, great!
Frank DIorioUnited States
Walked all around Prague seeing the different quarters of the city, combined history and current affairs together to give us a great picture of what Prague is and was. Would recommend to anyone, but especially to people that are interested in post cold war history.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for feedback!
Karen DalyUnited States
Katarina is a delightful, energetic and knowledgeable tour guide. Her experiences, education and life in Prague really bring the history and the City to life. She shared so much information and we used it during our subsequent days in the country.

Absolutely fantastic. This woman knows her history and she is a complete delight to be around. She took amazing care of us and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Andrew SmileyUnited Kingdom
Fabulous ! Katerina had done a lot of homework before taking us on a day tour to follow Heydrichs assassination and the Nazis reprisals. We started with an excellent visit to The Crypt under St Cyrils Church. We later went to Heydrichs House in the countryside and retraced his final journey to where he was ambushed. There was a tear in all our eyes at Lidice. The statues of the murdered children is incredibly moving. Katerina gave us a wonderful day and brought everything alive.
Mark CannellUnited Kingdom
It was a real pleasure to spend time with Katka. Her knowledge and passion for her City was infectious and so incredibly informative. It was the perfect way to spend our first day in this beautiful City and subsequently we felt very much "at home" in Prague and I genuinely believe we actually got more out of our visit with this first hand knowledge at the beginning. Katka is a very easy person to be around and the minute that we met her we all knew that we would get along famously well.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for very nice words. Happy to hear you enjoyed our tour. All the best!
Carol B.Medina, OHIO, United States
Katerina was outstanding! We have already recommended her to friends we met in Europe. She spoke excellent English, had a in-depth knowledge of all things Prague and even has a degree in anthropology! I highly recommend!!
Katerina is an exemplary guide, professional in all the best ways. Knows and loves her city, her tours are extremely well thought out to cover city a logical and efficient manner, in a few hours she was able to provide us with a solid overview of Prague complete with suggestions and options of things to do on our own... enough to keep us going for weeks! I guess we will have to go back.
Dan RossUnited States
Katerina was an extraordinary guide. Her knowledge of and love for Prague, its art and history, are immense and passionate. She was energetically committed to imparting that knowledge and passion to us, together with her personal anecdotes, which connected us powerfully to the history and life of this amazing city and country. We give her our highest possible rating. Thank you so much, Katerina, for your time with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, Dan, for you taking time to write a tour review. Happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour and had a nice time here:-)!
Dan RossUnited States
We had the most wonderful day touring with Katerina. She was exceptionally knowledgeable of the history of Jewish life in Prague both past and present. We saw all the important Jewish sites and got a very clear vision of how life for the Jewish community in Prague existed. Katerina was a delight to spend the day with. We truly enjoyed every moment of the day.

John WeinerUnited States
Katerina complemented the city tour we did with her in the morning with the castle tour. Her knowledge of Prague Castle, the Cathedral and the Charles Bridge was exceptional and readily communicated. She was very personable, efficient and perceptive about when any of the four of us needed to take a break or move faster. We had planned to tour the Lobkowicz palace after we left her but found it was closed for a private party. We very much enjoyed our afternoon with Katerina. We heartily recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for taking time to write about your experience! Happy to hear you enjoyed the tour:-)
John WeinerUnited States
Katerina was very flexible about adjusting the content of the tour since we had taken an extensive tour of the Jewish Quarter the previous day. Her knowledge of the city and its history, people, and culture was exceptional and readily communicated. She was very personable, efficient and perceptive about when any of the four of us needed to take a break or move faster. Especially interesting were her first hand accounts of life during and after the Communist era. We heartily recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice review! Katerina
Roger KnappUnited States
We (two couples) booked Katerina for a full day tour. The tour was the Prague Castle and the Jewish Quarter, but she arranged the tour around our preferences and we toured the Jewish Quarter and the Old Town districts. (We toured Prague Castle and area around it on our own.) Katerina was extremely knowledgeable and was able to provide personal insights regarding the development of Prague over the past few decades. She provided the personal service that we were looking for. Can't recommend high enough
Roger KnappUnited States
Katerina was very knowledgeable and adjusted the itinerary based on our personal preferences. Lunch as at a local restaurant where she provided more details into the customs of the area. I would highly recommend.
Bryan AndersonUnited States
Katerina was wonderful! It felt like we were with an old friend. Having her share her city and history including her own family experiences was lovely and personal. We would encourage anyone to go with Tours by Locals you won't regret it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your great review! Happy:-)

Fred HolgateUnited States
Katerina was wonderful. She is well spoken and very knowledgeable about the City of Prague and History. She is very personable and engaging, we were so lucky to choose Katerina. Traveling Europe for 18 days, Katerina was by far the best tour guide we have had.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Fred, thank you very much for your nice review! I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your time here. Please come back:-)! Regards to all of you from Prague:-)
Katerina guided us to visit Cesky Krumlov and Kutna Hora in one day from Prague (13 hours). She also introduced us many historical facts and local knowledge of Prague city. I would highly recommend her to anyone who visiting Prague for the first time and wants to get to know the city and its surrounds in a time efficient way.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. Glad to know you enjoyed your day here!

Eric HopeUnited States
Katerina was a pleasure to tour with! Her childhood years were spent under Communist control, and so she was able to relate how her country has changed over the last several decades. She was extremely informative without sounding like a history lecture. I would highly recommend her to fellow travelers.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Eric, for your nice words:-)...great to hear you enjoyed your time here!

She really loved to meet new people and share her knowledge with us.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Sheena, Thank you for such a nice review! Much appreciated:-) Hope to welcome your family members one day here, too!
Jennifer SweezerUnited States
LOVED Prague and Katerina! Her energy and sense of humor really made our tour. I'd been to Prague before and wasn't so excited about going back, but I did go back with family and loved every second of it. We did a four hour tour with Katerina and we hit everything, plus some, down to the brass plates on the sidewalk memorializing the people that lived in the buildings prior to WWII. I have noticed in other cities as well, but that attention to detail is what I wanted, and what we got from Katerina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your nice words, Jennifer! Great to hear you enjoyed your time here:-)
Larry RubinUnited States
Wow! We had high expectations for our tour with Katerina and she exceeded them in all respects. Katka is extremely knowledgeable and even more personable. I guarantee a truly memorable experience.

I would highly, highly recommend her as a guide.

Katerina was fantastic! No other way to describe it. My family and i learn a tremendous amount about Prague, the people, their history as well as the historical sites. We had a 4 hour tour and whilst extensive, it felt that there was so much more to learn from Katerina. Top marks for her. Would love to go for another tour with her if time permits.

Glenn MorganUnited States
Wow! What a fantastic walking tour of Prague by Katerina. She is infinitely knowledgeable about the city and its past. Katerina described some of the history through her own experience and the stories told by her parents and grandparents. You can tell she is passionate about the city and the Czech Republic. When we met I told Katerina we wanted to change the tour since we had seen some of Prague the day before. Katerina took a deep breath and a few seconds later she said no problem we could do that.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice review!
Cristina SuarezUnited States
Katerina made my first day in Prague extremely memorable. She knows her history, provides so much insight, and totally sets you up to see the sights after you tour with her. The four hour tour was worth every penny and I highly recommend Katerina to anyone in need of a knowledgeable tour guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your nice commnent!
Stanley HumiennyUnited States
Katka was a superb guide through the Jewish synagouges and museum in Prague. She related stories of her grandmother's friends and how the Nazis systematically killed almost all of the Jewish residents of Prague. She took her time and paced the 3 hour tour so that the 4 of us could sit down periodically and listen to her descriptions. I would highly recommend Katka to anyone interested in touring Prague.
Philip GlennonUnited States
Katy is the best. She mixed stories of the Czech past and the present as she walked us over the Charles Bridge, up to the Castle area and back through Old Town. She gave us suggestions for other things to sees and a short lesson on using the tram system. We had a some lively discussions and lots of laughs. Her tour was the highlight of our time in Prague.
Elizabeth B.United States
We loved the 3 days we spent with Katerina. Born and raised in Prague, she possesses a wealth of knowledge about her country. In addition, she is well travelled so she knows what it's like to be a visitor/tourist in a foreign place. She's a true professional - personable, flexible, organized, knowledgeable. It felt like we were spending the day with a friend. Highly recommend her.
Harvey PerlmanUnited States

Christian HelblingUnited States
My wife and I and our two children (8 and 11) were visiting Prague from the United States and toured with Katerina on March 18, 2016. Katerina was wonderful with our children and quickly taught us everything we needed to know to make the most of our four nights in Prague. Her English is excellent and her tips saved us both time and money. She is an ideal guide and I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone interested in getting oriented in Prague. Thank you, Katarina!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Christian, for your feedback...very happy to hear you enjyoed your time here:-), great!
Barbara VackettaUnited States
We had a fabulous tour of Prague with Katerina. As a travel agent I wanted to experience a private tour. We had a short visit to Prague and were delighted to have Katerina as our guide. We never could have covered as much of the city on our own and would never have gotten so much detailed information from a guide book. We've decided we've been missing out for years on the best possible way to see a city. We would love to return and spend more time in many of the places that she highlighted for us.
Stacey LawlerUnited States
Prague is a "don't miss destination" and Katka brought the city's history and current events to life!!! Her "at a glance" tour was wonderful. She possesses a warm & engaging personality. Such a lovely time!

Joyce HoyeUnited States
Katka is a fabulous guide and very knowledgeable with a personality to match! She showed us the highlights of Prague within a 4-hour period of time and tailored the walking tour to what our group of 6 could manage. We especially loved hearing her personal stories about life under Communism and then afterwards. I highly recommend Katka's walking tour but would opt for the full-day tour if you have the time.

Knowledgeable/informed, personable, intelligent with excellent English. Katerina arrived early, started with an overview of tour plans but wanted feedback on specific areas of interest. She was flexible and sensitive to the needs of those touring (rest stop, toilet, etc.). She made suggestions for things to do/see on our own and provided post tour contact number if questions arose. Excellent guide !!
We were lucky enough to choose Katka as our guide for our tour in Teresen and Prague. She made the history come alive, especially the more recent history, with her descriptions of how recent wars,revolutions & communism had impacted previous generations of her family. Her passion for her country was palpable & her enthusiasm was catching. She even went the extra mile bringing her own books to illustrate some of her points with maps & photos.She certainly made our time very memorable & special. Shes a gem!

We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Katerina. She worked with us to understand our entire Prague visit and made helpful suggestions for our non-your time. While it was a miserably cold and rainy day, Katerine had us intrigued by her grasp of history, culture and legends - we hardly noticed. She was sensitive to our needs and ensured we had time for a coffee to warm up. We will definitely recommnd her to our friends who make the trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot for your nice words! Katka
Great Tour~! Everyone loved it!
Jean LinkUnited Kingdom
We really enjoyed our Prague at a Glance tour with Katerina! Our group of 7 ranged from age 9 to age 72. Katerina made sure the tour was appropriate for the wide range of interests as well as the mobility of all the group members. She oriented us to the city and showed us the highlights so we could go back and explore in more depth on our own. She showed us how to navigate the transit system and gave us great restaurant recommendations as well. We highly recommend her and this tour for new visitors.
Katerina was really interesting, good fun and amenable to slight diversions when requested. We also appreciated her way of showing us places, taking us to whet our appetite and then letting us know how we could come back and see more if we wanted. We all really enjoyed our tour. It was especially great that our 17 year old daughter also loved it, .At no stage did we feel that we wanted it to end.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alison, Thank you very much for taking your time to write your reference! I am glad to read you enjoyed our tour, great! Thank you! Katerina
Suzanne HallUnited States
We enjoyed an interesting and very informative day with Katerina. We saw many things we had never seen before in Prague. We really enjoyed Katerina's explanations and stories. She was a fabulous guide and we would highly recommend her to others. Prague is so beautiful and it was nice to see it with someone so knowledgeable about the history and the city.
Helen TroyNew Zealand
Great tour, would highly recommend!
I had never been to Prague. I was extremely fortunate to have Katerian as my guide. She deserves the five stars (or more) for her professionalism and personality. She has an infectuous enthusiasm in the way she talks and describes the city. She is highly knowledgeable and articulate. I have had many, many guides in my (long) life. I would rank her definitely in the top five. I was enriched by the visit to Prague and by meeting Katerina.
