“They really explain the city and its history in an informed way,” says Mark Baker from Lonely Planet, mentioning the operator’s Beer and Baroque and totalitarian-themed tour options.”
“On this guided walk you’ll visit hotels, bars, restaurants, and train stations notable for their elaborate facades, ginkgo Biloba leaves, and elegant light fittings, as you discover Prague’s history.”
“Dr. Bonita Rhoads, a bubbly New Yorker and founder of Insight Cities, a company specialising in architectural tours in Central European and American cities.”
“Insight Cities’ Prague Art Nouveau tour, helps make sense of a place that only emerged from behind the Iron Curtain in 1991, and widely agreed to be as beautiful as Paris.”
“Insight Prague guides come with impressive academic credentials and extensive knowledge in their areas of expertise. The company promises ‘truly informed tours for travelers who like to learn.”
“Vadim Erent runs Insight Cities, a tour company that promises to give visitors a deeper perspective on the cultural and political histories of more than half a dozen cities.”
Vadim was an excellent guide – conceptual and political themes into historical context. As a bonus, the sunset from Vitkov was stunning and something that most tourists don’t get to see. Highly recommended!
It was a rainy day so we had to adjust a little. Beer was good, and Vad’s knowledge was over the top. Ended up spending 5 hours with him learning about Czech history
This tour was fantastic. Vadim was an amazing guide and I would recommend this to anyone who wants a sophisticated, intellectual discussion on this history of communism in the Czech lands.
Insight Cities is head and shoulders above many other European tours I’ve been on. The guides are professors and subject matter experts in the field, and their expertise and ability to captivate a crowd really comes across. I took the tour with my mother and we both enjoyed it immensely. Going on this tour made our trip to Prague extra special. If you are visiting Prague, don’t miss it!
The Insight Cities tour of Art Nouveau/Cubist Architecture is a very entertaining and stimulating tour of Prague’s architectural wonders. This tour takes you on a pleasant walk through some of Prague’s most beautiful sites – both the well-known monuments and the city’s hidden gems. During our walk, our guide Bonita offered fascinating details about art nouveau, cubism, and art deco and gave insight into the historical events in Central Europe in the 19th and 20th centuries that led to the formation of these art movements.
