Jan was like a long lost friend. He gave us an excellent tour and was able to change the itinerary with no notice in order to suit us. His knowledge is exceptional and his passion was contagious. After 4 other tours on our trip we were all weary and thought this tour may be a chore. This was definitely not the case. The entire family warmed to his outgoing manner and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. If you are booking a guide in Prague you do not need to look any further.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Chris, thank you very much for such kind feedback. I agree that we spent a special time together like old friends. You are a great family and l will be always very happy to welcome you back to your motherland. Enjoy your stay in Europe and see you soon! Best regards, Jan

Jan was absolutely fantastic. Very personable, jovial, and at all times reflecting how much he enjoys doing his job. Very knowledgable of everything Czech and beyond. Broad mastering of European history, arts, culture and civilizations. Extremely good communicator, able to produce logical and accurate context to his presentation. He also provided plenty of flexibility in accommodating to personal requests. In summary truly a treasure to those fortunate to enjoy his touring!

This was a great introduction to Prague for our 2-generation group of 8! Jan is an excellent guide and gave us a real sense of the history, politics, economics and culture of this amazing city. We decided to go the private tour route after trying recorded bus tours and hop-on hop-off experiences in the other cities on our trip -- and wow, what a difference! We covered more In just 4 hours with Jan than we got from 2 days in other cities. We highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Coleen! Thank you so much for such kind words. I am really happy we could explore the city during the evening together. You were a really special group of very nice and kind people l must say to spend the time with. If you will need more info or any help don’t hesitate to contact me. And hey?! Thank you for the beer!! Na zdraví ;-) Enjoy your holiday! Love you all. Jan

Jan is an enthusiastic guide with a lot of heart. He was patient and adjusted the pace bec we had kids but never shortchanged us. He made sure we saw the highlights of the city and was a thorough and comprehensive guide especially for visitors who want to see everything in a concise period of time. Jan also pointed out the best money exchanger in the city and gave us many helpful tips for trip. We highly recommend Jan especially for the first day of your tour.

Robert ColverUnited States
We spent a wonderful day in Prague with Jan! His historical knowledge of his country is only surpassed by the passion in which he shares it. We visited all the important sites of the city and learned so much. His stories were engaging, informative, and entertaining. And also, his English is excellent. We even learned that one of his distant relative lives only 5 miles from our daughter in Denver! If you wish to spend a day that you will never forget, choose Jan to be your guide—you will be glad you did!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert! Thank you very much for such a kind feedback. I had so much fun with you guys and l am really very happy you experienced the tour this way.

Thomas GeorgeUnited States
Jan was simply fantastic!!! He is so knowledgeable and excited about Prague's rich history. Jan was a perfect ambassador for his home town and such a gracious host. We covered so much in during our 6-hour tour. He also helped with tips for places to visit on our others days in the city. We'd give him 6 stars out of 5 if we could!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tom! Thank you and your wife for such kind feedback but most importantly for such a great time during our tour. I am happy we finished our tour smiling with original Pilsner Urquell beer in one hand and svíčková beef vegetable sauce with dumplings on the other hand :-) It was a big pleasure to meet you guys and one more thing. Cheers to another 25 �� Love you guys! Jan
Michael EckhardtUnited States
Our family of 4 (with two teenage daugthers) from the US had a great time with Jan. Seeing the city at night was truly a great way to see Prague and getting Jan's local take on the history and culture made the experience come alive. When we travel we always spend a great deal on tours as this is the best way to really learn the history, understand the local perspective and save time not getting lost. Looking at beautiful castles is fun...but knowing all the fun details makes the difference.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Michael! Thank you so much for picking me as your tour guide and l, even more, thank you for this lovely feedback and comment. We had a great time together, the night tour is definitely special. Have a great summer family Eckhardt! Kind regards, Jan
Christine CallasUnited States
Jan was extremely knowledgeable and personable. We had a great 6 hours and highly recommended him. He was "the best" and we had a great day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Christine! Thank you very much for your kind words. We had a great day together l agree and l will always remember you as a special group of people. You were so great. Say hi to Steve and your friends please. Love you guys! Jan
Steve CampbellUnited States
Jan is the best! We had our tour with him scheduled for a Monday, but my husband got sick so I had to reach out to Jan about a possible re-schedule. He was so flexible and, lucky for us, he had an opening (it would be his 3rd tour of the day) on Tuesday and it worked out for us! He showed us so much and the 45 min. boat ride was a great rest time. He was personal and very informative about his town. I HIGHLY recommend Jan if you are planning to go to Prague!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Rebecca, thank you so much for such a nice feedback. There is nothing better about my job when the clients become my friends after the tour. I am very happy we could re-schedule the tour for the next day. I hope Steve is feeling much better now and you both have good memories of Prague. If you will ever come over again or your family/friends don’t hesitate to contact me through ToursbyLocals. Thank you for everything! Jan
Lorinda (Rindy) SauveUnited States
Jan is GREAT. on time, funny, knowledgeable...took us to some out if the way places that we hadn't previously been to...just enough history for information but not so much that we didn't enjoy it. Jan was very conscientious to our handicap and helped a lot. A a very interesting, fun afternoon with Jan---wish he had been available to do a second tour for us. Definitely talk to him about special request as he is very inventive and accommodating. 5 stars all the way
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Rindy! Thank you so much for such a nice feedback l really appreciate that. You and your husband are amazing people. We had great time together. What makes me very happy was the visit of the church where the priest blessed us. It was the special and authentic moment for all of us. I am very happy you were satisfied with my tour and l can not wait to guide you again. Have a save trip home. Best, Jan
Jack PowellUnited States
Jan Is a fantastic guy. He compressed into seven hours a tremendous amount of history, architecture personal interest, politics, religion, shopping and geography. I would highly recommend him, and intend to book him for another tour before I leave Prague. By far the best way to get to know a city, efficiently, and with lots of laughing! ToursByLocals rock!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Jack! First of all thank you very much for picking me up as your tour guide. I would like to also thank you for your feedback. It means a lot for me. You and Susan are really nice and smart people and it was a big pleasure for me to guide you through our beautiful city of Prague and tell you about some of the stories that happened here. Honestly I can not wait for another tour with you. Enjoy your stay in Prague! Jan
Sheila CarrasquilloUnited States
Jan was a delight! We had an amazing experience in Prague. He pointed out all the interesting sights along the way with amazing details of the Prague's history. He took us to hidden places we probably would missed if we explore the city on our own. We experienced and enjoyed the city like a local. Highly Recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Sheila!!! I am so happy l can read your kind words, thank you so much l really appreciate that. We had a great time together with you husband and l can not wait for our next time. Feel free to tell your friends about TBL. Enjoy sunny Cali and I hope l will see you again. Best, Jan
