The more we travel, the more we appreciate the value of a local guide like Lenka who not only helps you make the most of your time but who brings the history and culture alive. Our full-day tour took us all across beautiful Prague starting at the top of the hill all the way to the river and beyond. Lenka's deep knowledge, excellent English and easy-going, friendly style was a perfect fit for my wife & I and there was no question or historic fact she did not know. Excellent, professional and fun. A++

Lenka was perfect. She arrived on time or even before the agreed time. She was well organized and professional. He knowledge of the subject was through and she delivered it in an interesting way. I was completely satisfied with our tour.

one of the best guides ever taken by us in 30 years
We had already taken a full day personal walking tour of Prague with Lenka which was wonderful. Lenka is a lovely person and we enjoyed spending more time with her. I believe she has a masters degree in Jewish history and we had a most illuminating and insightful tour of the Jewish quarter, learning much about the history of Jews and Jewish life in this region, pre-WWII, during the war, under communism and subsequently. We received further useful recommendations for the remainder of our stay.
My wife, adult daughter and I spent a most delightful day in the company of Lenka who gave us a personalised walking tour of Prague tailored to our needs and preferences. Lenka is a lovely person who is passionate about her city. In addition to being incredibly knowledgeable, it was just a fabulous day to be in her company. We had insightful and entertaining conversation and she gave us good recommendations for the remainder of our stay. We spent a further half day with Lenka touring the Jewish quarter.

Lenka gave our group of 6 a delightful 6 hour walking tour of Prague with lunch and a boat ride included. She is very pleasant and professional as a guide. She made our first full day in Prague both enjoyable and educational. Some of our group and specific food requests and she was able to arrange it with great results. We would hightly recommend her!!

When in Prague you need to book a tour with Lenka. She was informatkve and accomodating. We had 1 traveler who was coming off knee surgery ans she was able to tailor our tour to limit walking. With a masters in Jewish history i will need to come back to take her tour of the Jewish quarter
Julie FinnicumUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour, Lenka took us to "off the beaten path" places in Prague where the locals eat traditionally Czech food. She was also a great source of information about all things Czech, answering questions that we had about the school systems, healthcare, etc.
Sarah MarjoribanksUnited Kingdom
This is our first visit to Prague. We knew nothing of its history and have learned so much today. Lenka is warm, friendly and clearly passionate about her country. She would give us a chunk of history, let us mull it over, than answer our many questions. We would recommend Lenka's private tour to our friends and family, and we can't say better than that. Many thanks for a most informative and interesting few hours. Best wishes Sarah and Andy.

This was one of the best tours that we've ever had. Lenka impressed me right away by meeting us at the train station. She helped us with storing our luggage and went over what we needed to do to get back on train. She then asked questions as how we would like to have the tour and started tour based on that and did a fantastic job. Toward the end of the tour she got our young kids involved by asking questions about what she had covered. The kids loved it. I can not say enough about her tour/services
Lenka was a great tour guide and very knowledgeable of the history of Prague. We took the 4 hour walking tour which covered most of what you would want to see in Prague. Lenka gave recommendations of where we could eat and other places we could visit within Prague and day trips from Prague during the remainder of our stay.
Keith MainlandBoulder, CO, United States
Great guide for the Jewish section. Understanding of Jewish history is vast and is great at explaining on a fundamental level.
Veronika MyersUnited States
Lenka took us on a very interesting tour through Prague. She is knowledgeable and we enjoyed our afternoon with her very much.
Alan C WoodIreland
We had a great introductory tour of Prague, tailored to our personal interests and needs. Responding to my walking limitation of 3 kilometers, Lenka had our driver take us through the main places of interest, stopping for short walks through Prague Castle Town. As we travelled, she gave us an informative summary of the history of Prague and Bohemia and outlined points of interests around various beautiful buildings. It was very interesting to listen to her perspective on recent history and politics.
Jack AndersonUnited States
Wonderful tour. Great overview.
Lenka certainly was knowledgeable as she guided us around. There was a little confusion about the meeting place, but we managed to find each other, she also had to take phone calls at the start of our tour regarding her other guides; but after that we were on track. Thanks Lenka for a great tour
Ruth ShumanUnited States
Lenka was a wonderful guide. My goal was to end my trip with nighttime photographs of Prague. Lenka and the driver took us to some amazing vantage points starting at dusk and ending in the dark. I was able to capture amazing pictures while learning more about this beautiful city. I highly recommend Lenka!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Ruth, for your words. It was my pleasure to take you around. I hope the pictures turned out right! Send some! :-)
Bruce SanfordUnited States
I do not hand out 5 stars like candy for reviews of hotels-meals-tour guides. Everything must be exemplary to receive 5 stars. We have had 10 guides in Budapest, Vienna, and Prague areas. 3 rated 4 to 4 3/4 stars, 4 rated 3 to 3 3/4 stars, 1 was about 2 stars and 1 was completely useless. Lenka is a Czech national treasure with an encyclopedic trove of ancient and modern dates, places, and stories that she makes relevant beautifully with great personal warmth and charm. She is worth 6 stars.
The tour in general was good and well organized. The german language is excelent. For a 5 star ranking I expected some more guidance for sightseeings on later days and a good restaurant recommendation for the evening. The recommended restaurants were very touristic and not high quality.

Very enjoyable tour!
David TompkinsCzech Republic
Wonderful tour guide! Great tour with lots of great information.
Lenka is a fantastic guide as everyone could wish for a tour through Prague. She knows a lot about her city and knows how to 'sell' this knowledge. She is enthusiastic and sympathetic. The tour which she prepared for us, was very interesting with many helpful insider tips (like good places to eat). Many thanks, Lenka !
Lenka is a wealth of information and we thoroughly enjoyed our morning with her. Her knowledge of the city and it's history is vast and fascinating. Our driver David was pleasant too and the van was extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend a visit to Prague coupled with a tour with Lenka, thank you!

Lenka is a true professional-- she was prompt, courteous, knowledgeable and attentive. Born and raised in Prague, she knows the city like the back of her hand. Not only did we see countless, awe-inspiring sites during the tour, Lenka made several helpful suggestions following the tour. We had a delightful day and give Lenka and her magical city all the credit.
Kathleen NultyUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed our tour of Prague with Lenka. She was extremely knowledgeable and personable. Lenka organized the tour so that we saw a lot, walking the entire historical part of the city, while also providing some relaxing time with an included lunch and a narrated boat ride. We enjoyed learning the history of Prague. It was extremely interesting to learn about life in Prague under both the Nazi occupation and the Communist regime. I highly recommend taking a tour with Lenka.
Kirt WhitesideUnited States
Lenka was knowledgeable, kind, friendly, patient..super clear in her explanations and took her time when we need more of it. She has to be one of the best in Prague. She cares...she really becomes one of your friends quickly. She knows English well - living Stateside for a year. Her in depth knowledge was very impressive....and it takes me a LOT to be impressed. If you're looking for the best...stop here!
Kirt WhitesideUnited States
Wow..our 1st private tour ever. We had heard horror stories of tour folks on clarity, knowledge, easiness...Lenka was personable, was super clear, answered LOTS of questions and was knowledgeable..
Marcos MarchenaUnited States
Lena was prompt. She is obviously knowledgeable, however, she has a summary of information she shares and compared to the guide we had the prior day it seemed limited. Her delivery is narrative rather than conversational.
Madelyn DybdahlUnited States
Lenka was a fantastic guide for our tour of Prague Castle: Amazing knowledge of history & a pleasure to spend time with. Highly recommend her for getting the most out your time in Prague.

Lenka's knowledge of Prague's history and geography was excellent. Her use of the "English" language was almost flawless. We would highly recommend her as a guide to Prague and the surrounding area.
Relaxed and efficient tour of Prague with Lenka. Knowledgeable and highly recommended.
Ellen EngelUnited States
Lenka was able to accommodate a large group from 20-90 year olds and make the tour interesting for everyone. She arranged special transportation for our "Grannies" so they were able to participate. We would definitely hire Lenka again.
Ellen EngelUnited States
Very knowledgeable. Was able to answer every question. Was solicitous of the elderly in our group. Would definitely hire this tour guide again.

Lenka provided a wonderful all day tour for the ten of us to two hiking locations and a chateau. We wanted something unique, out of Prague and she was very patient and helpful in working with us in the months prior to design exactly the activities for the entire day that fit our desires. She was easy to be with and we had a great day with her (and also the previous day in a trip to a castle). We would highly recommend Lenka.

Lenka was right on time and gave us the overview tour of Prague I had asked for. She was very knowledgeable and had a great personality and her English was near perfect. In hindsight a one day tour of Prague is certainly helpful, but there is so much to see I wish I had booked two days
Tracy HartungUnited States
We had an amazing day in Prague with Lenka. She was very professional and knowledgeable. We had an excellent Prague lunch and Lenka was able to save us from having to wait in long lines at the castle.
