For the ultimate sense of security and the most informative tour, go with Radek as your guide. Prior to traveling, he was very prompt with emailing availability and prices. Then as an added bonus his English is pristine.
My parents and I arrived in Prague exhausted from travel and were met with smiles by Radek and Peter at the airport.
Right away Radek made us feel at home with his friendly conversation. He was both engaging and knowledgeable.
We went to Kutna Hora and arrived at the bone church/ossuary where he helped us purchase the tickets we needed. After that we went to St Barbara's and the Cathedral, at both of these places we were given religious and historical facts without feeling like we were in a boring history class.
During the tour, Radek was gauging each of our moods; asking if we were tired or needed a rest, then allowing time as needed. Hopefully we weren't too grumpy from travels.
Finally, we were brought to our hotel in Prague and were helped up to reception by Radek and Peter. At this point my dad was checking in to the hotel and Radek helped me map out places for multiple yummy restaurants and souvenirs. He truly seemed to care that we would have a fabulous time in his city.
I have to say for true peace of mind when traveling, choosing someone like Radek is definitely a way to alleviate any anxiety. My parents and I continued to Brno and we didn't have Radek to meet us so the experience was quite a bit different. Definitely our nerves were frayed by the end of our time in Brno. Navigating a train station under construction, purchasing tickets and way finding all could have been less of a challenge if we had gotten him as a guide. Lesson learned.
So it is with 100% certainty I would say that I will engage Radek as my guide next time I come to the Czech Republic.
I hope this helps anyone who needs help deciding on a guide. It was truly such a wonderful experience to have Radek as our guide.
