Ornate mansions, stately palaces and extensive gardens started flourishing in this part of town, including the Vrtba Palace and its adjacent gardens.

Amazing Views and Excellent Tour Guide Jeanette

Michaela walked us through several baroque style streets in Prague and ended the tour at the beautiful hidden Vrtba Garden with a spectacular view of the city. She was super friendly and knowledgeable as well as entertaining and professional. Although the tour is focused on history, she incorporated other cultural aspects of Prague, which was awesome. I highly recommend it and will let my family know to experience it, since it would be an awesome gift for those who travel often and love history. I wish the tour was longer!! Thank you Michaela!

Fantastic tour of the center of Prague Kirill

We joined the tour with the whole family present, and loved the experience. Host was super knowledgeable and made the tour very interactive, showing us not only the tourist spots along the route, but also hidden places few people know about. Great presentation (with photos displayed over the video), awesome conversation that the kids participated in. We've learned a lot and can't wait to visit Prague in person.

We were not sure what to expect as this was our first time taking a virtual tour. My husband and I were pleasantly surprised and had an amazing experience with Mark as our tour guide! We will definitely be coming back!

Katerina was lovely. She was very approachable, had a lot of interesting historical facts, and stopped to let me take pictures. I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of Vrtba Garden, and plan to go back for a tour of the castles very soon.
