I absolutely LOVED this tour! It was nice to do something a little different from the usual 100% factual history tours and hear some stories and legends that were pretty intriguing. It's also lovely (we did the tour in summer) it starts out light, then you see the sunset, then by the end you get a breathtaking view of Prague at twilight when the city is all lit up. There is also a stop at a brewery about halfway if you enjoy beer! The guide was so lovely and friendly and really bought the myths and legends she was telling to life, and the cathedral and castle are so super impressive to see! Just be aware as I don't think it's totally obvious from the description that you don't actually go INSIDE the castle or cathedral, you just go onto the castle grounds so you can see them from the outside.

I really liked Prague since I arrived on day 1. I have never seen a similar place and I was really fascinated.

But honestly it was only thanks to this tour that I totally fell in love with the city.
Of course the tour explores plenty of the most "mainstream" places you can visit, but I think that what makes this experience special is the way you get to explore them.

Sofia, our amazing guide, gave us the opportunity to explore the city and reach all the locations by passing through wonderful landscapes and very hidden and intimate alleys, where we had the chance to really absorbe the soul of Prague.
Honestly if it wasn't for our guide Sofia, we would have never visited certain spots and the overall experience of Prague wouldn't have been so impressive.

During the tour we were acknowledged of both historical and "mythological" anecdotes. I think that the two aspects were combined really well and the narration of all the events was really enjoyable.

The tour is perfect for anyone, doesn't matter if you are with your fiance, friends or family, the experience is absolutely wonderful and 24€ is a really honest price.

Thank you again for the wonderful experience!

Our tour guide was Plami. There was quite a few places we visited, but in each one we heard about people that lived there and mysteries surrounding it. Also the storytelling was very interactive with quizzes, high fives and encouragement for discussions. We even got a free ride with a tram :) The guide was so enthusiastic that even after the tour she gave us a few bonus stories while accompanying us to the metro back to the city center

This was an amazing trip with high level of intelligence on the history of Prague. David was an excellent tour guide whereby he was speaking with passion, intelligence and a good laugh plus a nice beer at the monasteries brewery. Highly recommend to book this as you will learn the history of the alchemist of the time, the stories by the Jewish quarter and the scenery of Prague Castle.

David was spot on with his timeline on facts that occured in history and highly recommend to book him.

I decided to book this tour the evening I arrived in Prague. Since I wasn't able to spend much time exploring, I figured a tour would be the best so I could see the most sights. I was not disappointed. This tour is a 3 hour evening walking tour so make sure to wear good shoes and a jacket as it can get cold in the evening. You get a chance to stop for a beer, but the price is NOT included in the price of the tour.

My guide for the night was David. He usually does the ghost tour, so we were his first group for the alchamy tour. He did an amazing job and if i had had more time, i would have booked a ghost tour with him. My group consisted of 3 people so we had many chances to ask questions. David was entertaining and very knowledgeable. The alchamaic history of Prague is very interesting and he was able to weave a story that told this history while also ponting out interesting areas to see when you are on your own time. He was also able to give recommendations for places to eat and drink.

I highly recommend this tour and if I ever come back to Prague, I'll make sure to do another tour!

Our guide Levin was really cool & explained a lot of things in detail (including interesting stories and legends).

It would have been a 5 star experience for us if the tour explained and showed more of the "Alchemy" element of the city (the title increased our expectations from the tour and we really wanted to see more about the Alchemists, their experiments & their working labs and equipments).

Our only suggestion is to add more of the Alchemy element to the tour, maybe take us into some old labs/area's, show us what was really achieved by the Alchemist's of the king.

We had a great time on the tour. Our guide, Jim, was very interesting and knew a lot about the city. He offered a lot of information about historical sites as well as facts and stories about the time periods. We went all across the city and conveniently ended the tour near a tram making it easy to get home after.

Jim took us to some great look out spots across the city. We even went back after the tour to the lookout at the Monastery where I ended up proposing (she said yes!)

This tour brings you on a tour filled with Prague history with a mystical twist. Because of the tours late hour, we were able to explore the sites in peace without the big crowds.
Our guide David made an magical atmosphere, and he was an excellent storyteller! In total, it exceeded our expectations.
I recommend bringing some warmer clothes and comfortable shoes.

The tour was simply incredible and an experience I won't forget. The evening atmosphere, away from the tourists in autumnal Prague was magical. It almost felt as if you have the city to yourself. Content wise it was really interesting and informative. What made it special was the tour guide Romika who took ample time to answer all questions, give tips for my visit and peppered in really cool details like the amphitheatre steps that just enhanced the experience. I was the only person who had booked so I got a 1:1 guided experience which made it just that bit extra special. Surely one to stay in the memory box :)
