Prague Architecture Highlight Tour 5 Stars
Aug 2021 • Couples
My wife and I (ages 59 & 70) signed up for Rob's exceptional tour while staying at the Alcron Hotel in Prague. Rob started our tour at our Hotel which has many Art Deco period pieces, and then transitioned us through Renaissance, Classical, Baroque periods and more! Rob has a keen intellect when it comes to Architecture and takes you to hidden gems which you would probably never find on your own including a private Chapel built in the 1200's. Rob also has a unique sense of humor, speaks fluent English and Czech. We recommend this tour to those interested in Architecture and the history of Prague. Five Stars and 2 Thumbs up, Way Up!

Rob has a massive amount of knowledge about art and history and their relationship and conveys it very engagingly. I learned a tremendous amount about artistic movements of the last 1000 years in this wide-ranging tour of architecture in the heart of Prague.

Fantastic guide!
Jun 2019 • Family
Rob is an extremely knowledgeable and personable guide who imparted his deep academic and personal love for architecture and Prague itself. Rob really brought the city to life for us and did a wonderful job connecting with our children (middle school and high school) and keeping them engaged. We found his tour so interesting that we did a 2nd day with him in the country learning more about this beautiful country and its history.

Enjoyable and informative walking tour
Rob provided an interesting and informative tour of Prague's diverse architectural heritage. He helped us see highlights and details we would have certainly missed. We extended the tour as we were enjoying it so much. His personal history and experience adds to the learning and enjoyment.

I took a fantastic 3 hour walking tour highlighting the best to see in Prague. My tour guide, Martin, was extremely knowledgeable, funny and wonderfully articulate in his descriptions of what we were seeing. I highly recommend this company and if Martin is your guide it will be wonderfully memorable !

Exceptional & memorable!
Jan 2019 • Couples
This was an exceptional and memorable tour of Prague! The tour started promptly at the convened time and place. Then, thanks to Rob's eclectic explanations, we began our exploration of the city's architecture and history from the immemorial time of its founding to the present. We leisurely walked the famous and the hidden corners and streets of Prague quarters (Castle Quarter, Old Town, New Town, Little Quarter & the Jewish Quarter) while Rob deciphered for us the styles and the history/trivia behind the buildings' façades. His explanations were tailored to our specific interests and questions and were thorough, fun, and entertaining. A short stop at a little quaint place for refreshments & artisanal beer midway through our 5-hour tour was a welcomed opportunity to rest and talk some more about the city. Overall, an unforgettable way to experience Prague and a must-do while there!
