Bonita and her husband did a phenomenal job showing the beauty and telling the history of Prague! They took us through the most gorgeous places as well as showing us and explaining painful historical references. During the pandemic, it is impossible for me to travel. This virtual tour was perfect, relaxing informative and enjoyable. It was a wonderful gift my friends children gave their father for a birthday present. Thrilled I was invited!

This was such a great experience! Bonita, our excellent guide, gave us a Zoom walking tour in which she interwove history with architecture and sites which make Prague so unique and worth visiting. Originally from New York, Bonita talks non stop for an hour as she walks from the famous Old Town square through the nearby streets. Even if you’ve been there before, you will learn new information and see buildings and typography which will thrill you. At the end, you’ll want to book tickets to see Prague for yourself, but in the meantime, I recommend seeing some of it through Bonita’s eyes. They do other tours also. Try Insight Cities yourself.
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.
Bonita showed us hidden gems of Prague architecture many of which I have walked by for more than 2 years without ever realizing they were there. Other sites I had noticed their beauty without understanding their meaning. I already knew Prague is a beautiful city, but after this tour, the beauty really pops! Bonita’s knowledge is deep, and she answered all our questions — and many interesting questions we didn’t know enough to ask. I suspect we only scratched the surface of she knows. I highly recommend this tour.
We went on this tour with Lenka Phillippova as our guide. She has extensive knowledge of the history of Art Nouveau in Prague as well as history in the city. She showed us some amazing sites that we would never have found on our own. Her command of English was excellent. She was passionate about the subject and she graciously shared her time and knowledge with us. We were mesmerized for four hours ! We were lucky to be the only two people in the group so it was a personalized experience. We cannot recommend Insight Tours more highly- registration was easy, confirmation of the guide and meeting place was detailed and helpful. The tour guides are amazing !
Today we were delighted by the art nouveau and cubist delights of Prague’s Old Town. Having already lived in Prague for a few years, I was familiar with some of these buildings and interiors but knew little of their place in both art and Czech history. Bonita Rhoads is an articulate, knowledgeable and passionate tour guide! She easily brought the art alive by placing it within local and international contexts. The art is amazing. The tour is strongly recommended for visitors and residents. Thanks Bonita!!
