This tour was such a moving and memorable experience. I will never forget this day.
It turned out that I was the only person who had signed up for this tour, and therefore,
I was very privileged to have the experience of a one on one tour of Prague's Jewish Quarter with
my tour guide, Ana.
Ana is amazing. Her passion and extensive knowledge made this 4 hour journey a true treasure.
I learned so much from Ana that day, not only of the history of the Jewish Quarter, but the background stories of the Jewish
people of Prague thru the centuries. Those who were famous, and those not famous, so many people gone but never to be
forgotten, for they exist in the memorials and historic streets, the buildings, the synogogues, and the very air
one breathes while walking these streets and pathways.
The world must never forget, never again.
Not Viator's fault. A driver came to the hotel and didn't speak or understand English too well. He saw us waiting and reached for my paperwork for the tour. I saw that my name was not on his list. He then made a phone call and said ok, He drove us down to the center of town and a lady met us at the corner. We were told to go with her to Kiosk. She went inside and came out and said, Sorry I can't help you. We said no way, you cannot just turn us away. She wanted to direct us to the Best Tour office. We said we do not know the area, walk with us. She said she could not do that and we talked her into walking us to the main street. I called the International number for Viator and they were very helpful with directions. We got to the location about 15 minutes late and a lady with Best Tours was very helpful. Apparently there were other people on the tour that were also delayed so we made it just in time. Great tour. I would have liked it if the Old New Synagogue would have been included instead of just walking past it.
The synagogues especially the Pinsky were quite moving. The cemetery was amazing for the small space it was confined to. However, the tour was too long because of meeting at a central location and not in the Jewish Quarter as expected and explained. Anna was knowledgeable, but without a quiet walking device and her accent it was nearly impossible to hear her amongst the throngs of people. I just stayed near her at all times.
People should be informed in your description that all the synagogues require 2 to 3 flights of narrow and high stairs to climb. My husband and others were unable to get to see anything above the lower level and therefore this was a great disappointment for them.
Probably a bit too long. We could have met at the Jewish Quarter rather than the office as the places of interest we passed from one to the other we had already covered on another tour. The guide, Anna, was very knowledgeable.
