Sarka gave our family a tour of the Czech Republic and it's people with history, architecture, and folklore. She is interesting and energetic. Do yourself a favor and hire Sarka to tour Prague, you'll thoroughly enjoy your visit and feel part of the city.

Hi Sarka,

I want to thank you for making our time in Prague so special. You really brought the city alive for us. I am so glad that you were able to be our tour guide. I especially appreciate the way that you personalized the tour to include the sights and information that we were most interested in. And you built in time for coffee and rest! That is very important.

I am still working on pictures, and I will be sure and send you links when they are ready. The city is amazingly beautiful!

Thanks again,

Dave and Karen Votaw

Our tour with Sarka was amazing! It was our first day in Prague and she gave us a wonderful sense of the city. The tour was tailored to our needs (an overview with suggestions of what to do on our own in more depth, a lot of "Kodak moments", some serious walking and a good understanding of Czech history and food). We have already recommended her to three people back home in Boston. Thank you, Sarka!

Hello Sarka

I wanted to thank you for the outstanding tours you provided while we were in Prague this summer. My family thoroughly enjoyed our time with you. Your personal approach was really great. I appreciate you taking the time to take us to special out of the way places, places we would have never found on our own or if we had taken a standard tour. In our 3 days with you we saw so much ( 2 days in Prague and 1 day trip to Cesky Krumlov). Your knowledge, enthusiasm, personality and humor made out visit to Prague truly amazing. This is our 5th summer of traveling for a full month throughout Europe. Every summer we take a different itinerary and visit 4-5 countries. I always try to find private tour guides in each major city. It is the only way to really understand a city. After finishing our visit with you in Prague I asked my family members what the thought about Prague and our tour. The response was that Sarka was the best tour guide we have had in our 5 years of touring and that Prague was in the top 5 of all cities ever visited. This is quite a compliment to you Sarka. Thanks again for an excellent 3 days and we will be back to see you soon.

Dear Sarka:

My family and I absolutely enjoyed the personal tour. We must admit that it was indeed money well spent. Having the ability to make changes during the actual tour and to have someone as knowledgeable as Martin, left us intellectually stimulated while having a great time. We will do this again.

Your tips were quite valuable as well. Thanks for making this possible for us. We can hardly wait to return to your magnificent city. We would recommend your tour to anyone without hesitation.

We had an absolutely lovely tour with Martin. He was passionate about the city of Prague, and made it fun to learn about its rich history.

We will definitely do another tour w/Martin next time we are in Prague. And you should too!

Sarka,
Your services were top notch!
George made our drive from Austria to Prague enjoyable, entertaining and informative.
When we decided to change our schedule, you were a welcome relief to reassuring us you would be able to make arrangements for our transportation with George one day earlier. Your professional style, along with George's, is to be complimented.
We learned so much from him about the Czech Republic and felt so well directed by his services.
If anyone is planning to go to Prague, I hope they contact you!

I had an afternoon with Katarina Kruspanova as my personal guide. I have traveled the world and Katarina maybe the best guide I have ever had anywhere. She made the history & architecture of the Czech Republic and Prague come to life. Fascinating and highly recommended. My husband joined us in the final third of the tour directly from a business meeting and she effortlessly switched to his interest, modern political history without batting an eye.
Bravo!

Big thanks to Barbora for providing us with a wonderful tour of Prague. We enjoyed every minute. She knew the answer to every question we had and knew not only the general information about the buildings and sights, but the stories and history behind them which we found great. Can't recommend her highly enough! Give the personal tour a try....you won't be dissapointed!

Barbora Liskova was wonderful! She was knowledgeable, informative, helpful and really listened to what we wanted to do. We had a perfect tour customized to our interests each step of the way. She was also most enjoyable to be with! Thank you for selecting her as our guide!

From Alisa Schierman & Sid Horn:

I wanted to tell you what an amazing time we had with Martin Belohradsky on our trip to Terezin in early October, 2006. He was not only extremely knowledgeable about Terezin, World War II and the Jewish population in the Czech Republic, he was the kindest man and a great pleasure to spend time with. He even dropped us off after our tour in Mala Strana at the Wallenstein Gardens (which we didn’t realize were only opened on weekends) – what a wonderful surprise that was for us.

We couldn’t have had a better experience.

Hello Šárka,

I wanted to give you some feedback. Our trip to Prague was wonderful!! The transfer was perfect and Helena…

all I can say is Helena was a first class guide. She exceeded all of our expectations! She is very intelligent and knowledgeable. She had an excellent understanding of the city and its history. She was able to answer all of our questions and anticipated others we would not have thought of until we got home. She was diligent at satisfying my wish list and enhanced it by offering other suggestions. She did an excellent job in avoiding the Holiday crowds on May 1 and saved us money on public transportation.

All in all she was a truly outstanding guide!

Thank you very much for all of the arrangements

Our trip to Prague was enhanced dramatically with Sarka as our guide. We learned about her from friends that travel frequently. They couldn't say enough good things about her. It was such a blessing. She was so knowledgable about the history, culture and architecture. I would highly recommend if you plan to visit Prague, you hire Sarka. Her tours (we were with her for 3 days) catered to our specific needs and desires. A++

To Andrea and Sarka,
We so enjoyed the tour with Andrea when we were in Prague last month. She was very accomadating and made our tour special by including the wishes of our group. Her knowledge of the city and of the out of the way places to eat, drink and visit were invaluable. Thanks Sarka for the wonderful guide service.

When we learned that Sarka was not available furing our stay in Prague we were disappointed. But, she arranged for her father, Milan, to guide us and without doubt it was our best day in Europe. He was knowledgable, passionate, informed about past and current history and politics, and, of course, the sights. Because of him, Prague was our favorite city and we will return.

We spent two days with Andrea in Prague and one day with Katarina in Cesky Krumlov. All three days were wonderful. We were a group of five women and all of us decided we could not imagine having done our trip to Prague without these guides. Thank you so much! Lynn Crawford

Until today I've never felt the need to "blog" anything! Sarka, YOU ROCK! Our tours with Milan (Sarka's father), were fantastic! Milan didn't just point out tourist sights, he gave us an education, definitely more than promised. Thank you for sharing your world with us. Milan, we will never forget you...dekuji

Sarka, we booked you because of references in Rick Steves books and other blogs I had seen. I want to express that although you could not be our guide during the 2 days we used your services, we were delighted by Ondra. He was so knowledgeable and willing to adjust to our interests and schedules that it was a delight. This young man does the City of Prague proud! I recommend him and your services totally.
Thanks again,

Ana Maria

Hi Sarka,

Thankyou for arranging one of the best touring experiences we have ever had! Helena was a great ambassador for the city she knows and loves. We were so impressed with her deep knowledge of history, architecture, folklore, and current information plus her wonderful ability to communicate so well. She even accommodated our request to visit an art gallery of our choosing. We had a wonderful visit and in two days, we feel we truly learned to appreciate Prague with all the European history that has crossed its portal. Thankyou for bringing the city alive for us.

Sarka was unable to show us Prague, but she provided a wonderful guide: Barbora Liskova.
Barbora is exceptionably knowledgable and very thoughtful to accomodate our sight-seeing wishes. She is also very pleasant and kind. We highly recommend her.
Thank you, Sarka for introducing us to Barbora. Our trip will be very memorable thanks to her.

Visiting Prague with a personal tour guide was a fantastic experience. Our guide was Barbora Liskova. She was excellent: timely, knowlegable, full of enthusiasm, personable and fun. We toured with Barbora for two wonderful days. With Barbora, we felt as if we were visiting a friend and that she was showing us "her" city. We would highly recommend your tour organization.

My tour guide was Barbora Liskova and she was really fun to be around and made my whole experience in Prague one to remember!! She's very knowledgeable, and energetic (even in a hail storm). I absolutely loved my Prague experience. Thank You!!!

Dobry den Sarka and Jana,

Thanks so much to Jana for a wonderful, relaxed and extremely knowledgeable tour of Prague. Her English was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed her company and felt that the tour was the best way to start our visit to Prague. We would highly encourage anyone visiting this city to start with a personal tour from Sarka and company. We had questions about everything from Prague history, to architecture, to communism ... and there was not a question that Jana could not answer. We asked and Jana recommended several pubs and restaurants that were great. She put a very personal touch on Czech life and her perspective was thoughtful and genuine.

Sarka's company provided excellent service. The schedule was flexible and accommodating, and she even helped arrange travel to and from the airport. Altogether, we felt that it was money truly well spent. Dekuji Jana.

All the best,
Jill and Jim Peterson

Dear Sarka,

While editing photos of my March trip to Prague, I was reminded of the wonderful experience you provided for me (and on the second day, my friend too) on our walks through the city. While making sure that you touched all of the highlights, you also offered thoughtful insights into the life of the people today in the context of Czech history both distant and recent. Your excellent and most efficient guide service is largely responsible for the good thoughts I hold for Prague and for my desire to return one day. Rest assured that, if I do, I will be in touch.

Best wishes for the continued success that I am confident you will enjoy. Feel free to use this email in any way you deem best as an endorsement of your services, which I recommend unconditionally.

With kindest regards,

Barbora Liskova is a superb guide. We spent 2 half days with her walking around Prague and came away with a much better understanding of the Czech people, art, literature & the Velvet Revolution. Think all guides talk numbingly about castle histories, dates & ruler successions? Ask Barbora about tbe artist David Chesky, "The Incredible Lightness of Being", her personal recollections of the Velvet Revolution, the history behind the metronome, why the Czech Republic and Slovakia separated, Prague at the end of WWII, etc. She answered all our questions with interesting details, aplomb and nuance. We highly recommend her.

Sarka did research and made contacts for us to visit my ancestors village. She made arrangements for us to attend a Czech Folklore evening. She contacted my hotel to make sure we could leave our luggage there while we went touring the day we left Prague. She arranged for us a wonderful guide name Katarine Kruspanova who knew everything about European history and culture. Katarina took us exactly where we wanted to go. She knew exactly where we should stand to be on the front line of the changing of the guard at the castle. Katarina taught us how to use the metro and the train system as we were going to other countries by train after we left the Czech Republic. She made our whole European trip successul and our time in the Czech Republic the best experience of my life. I can't wait to come back and see more.

Dear Sarka and Lenka!

Our family trully enjoyed 2-half day tours with personal guide Lenka, who was very enthusiastic and eager to show us around the Prague.

We saw the old and the new town in the first day, and then the castle and the little quarter in the other day. The program was balanced and nicely presented, including wonderful city map, major attractions, history sheet and Sarka's recommendation for favorite restaurants.

We enjoyed the tours, and we loved your city!

Rick Steves is right - you are wonderful!

Thank you,

Sarka and Jana arranged for us to the a "Panoramic Transfer" between Prague and Vienna. It was a truly lovely day! Our personal guide and driver was Michal, who was extremely nice and information. The van was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Our stop in the beautiful town of Chesky Krumlov was a highlight of our vacation. Thank you, Michalm, Jana and Sarka!

We had an absolutely great tour of Prague with PERSONALPRAGUE GUIDE. Our guide, Veronica was energetic(to say the least)and walked us through all of Prague!! Her knowledge was outstanding, especially of the Jewish Quarter and she was extremely pleasant. We saw areas that we never would have found on our own. I highly recommend this company and their guides
