The Original Pilsner & Microbreweries Private Tour

The tour with Boris was just great! He gave us a very good insight to czech culture and the history of Prague. We were quite a mixed group, but he was able to make an interesting tour for everyone of us. His knowledge about the city and about Pilsner left the time flying by and at the last stop, we stayed for a delicious dinner, his recommendations were absolutely matching our tastes.

90 Minutes Amsterdam Kickstart Tour

Ente was an amazing host. He took so much pain. We started late and he waited for us. Then he took around . Helped us grab some lunch and then since we couldn't walk much as we had a little kid he helped us get some bikes. We then did like a biking walking tour. Infact, I kept calling him back for little information that we politely and readily provided. I think we found a friend back in Amsterdam with him. Many thanks Ente.
