This is my Flagship tour, most booked, most reviewed. It’s perfect for the first-time visitor to the city looking for an introduction to Prague, learning some of the history of the Old Town area. As well as the popular legends and amusing stories it takes in both Old Town and Jewish history/events, architecture, communism, world war two, synagogues, churches, Franz Kafka and Czech traditions.
