What a fantastic day. Ljuba was an excellent guide of the highest order. She entertained us all day with information and stories and took us to her special places which was so value adding. Ross was a wonderful driver, the van was brand new and super comfortable and his safe driving meant we all had a little nap without worrying about the journey. Our local guide was lovely and easy to understand. No negative experiences at all.

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.

I own a travel agency who has recommended Ljuba several times in the past with FABULOUS reviews! I personally just finished 3 days with her & 20 other guests; again FABULOUS, FANTASTIC, THE ONLY 1 TO USE IN PRAGUE! This woman was punctual, well groomed & dressed, comedic, knowledgeable, & VERY WELL ORGANIZED from the time we started planning this big group 2 the time of execution. 4 guests had a flight cancel & Ljuba managed to find time to get them toured. There is NO other we would use in Prague - Lisa

Ljuba was an incredibly knowledgeable tour guide. She took our family of four to visit the Terezin concentration camp. Despite it being a very intense day, we left saying that it was our favorite experience in Prague because of her indepth information and allowing us to really take part in the tour. She is well versed in all history and took the time at the end to drop us off at the Castle and explain the history of that too. Would highly recommend her!

Ljuba was a wonderful guide. She has a through understanding of Jewish and European history. She is friendly and has a good sense of humor. She explained things many times so that our two teenage granddaughters would understand.

We booked this tour late the night before. Ljuba was kind enough to accommodate us. I was traveling with my 81 year old mother, so this tour was perfect for us. We were picked up at our hotel and taken to the castle. Thanks to Ljuba, the day ran like clockwork. She knew exactly where to go and how to avoid the crowds and the lines. She was extremely informative and very entertaining. We all enjoyed ourselves. I highly recommend this tour, it is worth the money. Ljuba is excellent!!!

Tour: #383297, Private Terezin and Melnik Castle, Prague, Czech Republic    view tour
Date: May 29/18

This tour was one of contrasts - including the sober history of Terezin concentration camp with its Jewish memorials and collection of haunting children's art combined with a tour and wine tasting at historic Chateau Melnik on the banks of the Elbe and Moldau Rivers. We also visited a medieval ossuary in the local Melnik Church and visited the spot where the Nazi Leader Reinhard Heydrich was assassinated during WWII by Czech resistance fighters. It was a riveting day outside Prague. Well worth it!

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 were eight days in Prague and surrounds and we did the half day tour the second day of our trip. Ljuba gave us a superb intro to the city where we would be spending the next week, noting the essential spots to revisit after our time with her. She is "up" on the history and stories that make Prague such a divine destination for a few days.

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.

Ljuba is fantastic! She was super prepared for everything! She had materials in the van for us to review and provided excellent commentary on the trip to and from Terezin. She saw that one of our party had some mobility issues and arranged for her to have lift access in the museum and made arrangements for a wheelchair and a tour guide who could push it at the small camp. She is knowledgeable, as well as, very passionate and open about the Jewish experience during WWII which made our visit very special.

What a treat having Ljuba as a guide!!! She was one of the most expensive, but all her positive reviews were true and worth the extra money. Because of our short time in Prague, we asked her to combine two 1/2 day tours into one very long day! We did The Terezin concentration camp as well as a private guide to the Jewish quarter in Prague. We felt like she was a friend sharing stories and educating us at the same time!! Highly recommend!!!

We did two tours with Ljuba. On the plus side, she was very knowledgeable and the logistics she arranged for both tours were excellent. On the negative side, her communication skills left much to be desired. She was very robotic; she repeated everything three times or more--so much that we said something; she didn't listen; and she talked non stop. We cancelled the third tour because we could not imagine spending a third day with her.

Martin, our driver, was very good. He provided a good narrative of the countryside and tried (mostly in vain) to give us lessons in Czech pronunciation. It was a pleasant journey and we felt very safe as Martin drove very well.

Date: May 12/17

We started with the Moser crystal factory tour which was very interesting. The quality of their work and the history of the factory were amazing. Karlovy Vary city was very good. We had a nice stroll through town and lunched next to the river. We added in a tour to Pilsner to see the brewery and the tour was very worthwhile. We almost learned enought to become brewmasters.

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.

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.

My wife and I were fortunate to be able to book Ljuba at the last minute for a tour our first day in Prague recently. I had been before but my wife had not and was a bit curious about the local life. We could not have been happier with our investment. Ljuba is a professional and has been doing tours since she was in college, so she has a lot of experience and many local stories and sights to share. Included the Vysherad, John Lennon wall, driving tour of city with sights. St. Peter and Paul church. LOVE!

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.

Best Tour Guide!!! Ljuba was so enthusiastic about her county and heritage. She kept wanted to show us "one more thing" even with my 94 year old falling asleep between stops. She even showed us her Dad's personal seat in one of the synagogues. She was great at explaining the artifacts and I learned about several items that I was not familiar with including the combined Hanukia/shabbos candle holder. Ljuba was easy to work with before the trip. I highly recommend her.
