This was one of the best tours I very took part in. Jiri is really an expert in this field ( and in history in general). He showed us not only many placed we would never ever have seen without him and told us many details about history, society and his privat experience and gave us in general a very positiv feeling all the time. The 3h just flow by. Absolut recommendation
Very thorough and unique tour of the important Jewish sites in Prague. Some really interesting sites that I would never have known about otherwise. Thanks!
Our family really enjoyed the Jewish history tour of Prague with Jiri. Although young, he has a sincere desire to teach the history of the Czech Jewish people. The sites Jiri took us to were all over the city and the outskirts. It was meaningful and well done. This is obviously his passion. I can Highly recommend this tour.
This was a unique and interesting tour. I met Jiri on my recent trip to Prague and had a private tour with him. I was greeted with water and homemade cookies that his Mom made. We did an interesting tour of the Jewish quarter, but then we hopped on the train and went to visit Žižkov, the New Jewish cemetery where Franz Kafka is buried. From there we continued on to a remote train station called Bubny that has a holocaust memorial, and finally we went to the Jerusalem Synagogue which is absolutely gorgeous. Jiri was great and I thought the trip was really special.
