Reviews of Jáchym´s tours

Jachym was our guide. Contacting "Prague Local Friends" was easy and communication was pretty awesome in terms of speed and to coordinate location. We opted for the 5 hour walk leaving Jachym being the one showing us around. It was a great decision. We visited so many places, got a nice story lesson and we finished the tour with a nice cold beer. I took my wife and two kids (teenagers) and they also had a great time. Highly recommendable to anyone.

We had the pleasure of taking a walking tour with Jachym from Prague Local Friends. We were a little worried as the forecast called for rain showers, and they were right. It poured most of the day! I would have understood if Jachym was less than enthusiastic about walking us around the city. To the contrary, he was wonderful!
Jachym took us to various parts of the city explaining the history, architecture and culture. We stopped to sample traditional Czech sandwiches and pastries. During this break Jachym shared both the reality and legends of the founding of the country.
My son is an expert in military history; Jachym was engaging, sharing insights and perspective on Czech history through WWI, WWII and the Velvet Revolution. My favorite aspect is he tailored the conversation to our interests, combining wit and humor to make our tour of the Old and New Towns an absolute delight! We finished our tour damp, with a deep appreciation for this beautiful city.

The tour was excellent and well worth the money. There were only two of us and our awesome guide Jachym which really made it a personable and unique experience. Jachym was very knowledgeable and funny with a quick wit. We threw a lot of questions at him and he easily answered them all. The next day I really saw Prague differently after waking around and learning so much about the history and culture. Thank you!

Night tour was incredible, Kaeli is gonna marry our tour guide and we are both so exhausted. I limped home...
I liked that the tour included all of the different "quarters" of Prague. We saw monuments and architecture from different time periods and of different styles. I really liked that it was just the 3 of us. It was very personal and our guide was very good natured and laid back. It wasn't like a regular tour where they're like, "and on your left you'll see Charles bridge. In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue."
We saw everything we wanted to see!

Jachym is a wonderful and knowledgeable tour guide. It's the only night time tour of Prague but it's full of great stories and gives you an excellent idea of what you might like to see during the day. I would recommend this to anyone who loves history, meeting new people, and understanding culture.

My husband and I had a wonderful day getting introduced to Prague with our private guide Jachym. He is very knowledgable and was enjoyable spending the day with while getting to know Prague during our first day. I highly recommend Prague Local Friends and Jachym.

I booked a Prague by night tour just the day or two days before the tour. Communication was prompt and easy and booking was no problem (via email and Paypal). On the day we had a tour led by Jáchym who was great fun and extremely knowledgeable about the city. We admired his ability to endure the cold weather with just a jacket while we were wrapped up with thick coats and scarves! We saw all the main sites, had a history lesson and got to see some things that only the locals would know. Overall it was definitely worth the time and effort and great value for money. Jáchym was really friendly and personable and we would definitely recommend him to anyone considering personal tours. Thank you Prague Local Friends!

We have just got back from an amazing tour with tour guide Jáchym. He was absolutely fantastic, showed us many wonderful sites of the city with an explanation of each as well as some hidden treasures we wouldn't have thought to look for. He was very knowledgeable, enthusiastic and great company to be with. We cannot recommend this evening enough, it is absolutely perfect if you are in the city for short break and want to see as much of it as possible. Wouldn't have changed a thing about the night, thank you so much.

We booked a last minute Prague Night Tour and had Jáchym was our guide. He arrived on time to the designated meeting point and immediately gave us a history lesson about the Czech Republic (which we needed!). As the tour went on, he intertwined history with fun facts and current events that elevated the walking tour itself. We loved all the historical facts, but felt that Jáchym provided a real experience to the current state of affairs that the Czech Republic is facing. We loved every minute of the tour and Jáchym was flexible and easy to talk with - 3 hours flew by! Thank you so much! We will recommend this tour to friends and family!

Had a fabulous tour this evening. Thank you for putting it on. Doing the tour at night had the advantage of no crowds, gorgeous views and striking lit up historic buildings. Loved it. This place is amazing and Jachym our guide was excellent. Especially enjoyed the steps outside the castle with the unexpected acoustic effects!!

The night tour with Jachym was great! Was really interesting hearing all about the history of this beautiful city and Jachym made it really easy to understand.
Doing the tour in the evening is completely worth it because it can get incredibly hot during the day plus there are not nearly as many tourists around.
Would highly recommend this tour, especially early in your holiday because it allowed us to get our bearings of the city a bit more.
