Melissa_H, Mar 2023
Really fantastic tour through the Prague Old Town. Great pace of walking and talking and some cool stories, thank you Allen!
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much for your nice review, we appreciate it! :)
Allen was great! 👍
Ethan_R, Mar 2023
Allen is an excellent tour guide, and kept us all invested in the stories and their twists. It was an excellent night for sight-seeing in the city, and our guide was great at making conversation during the walks in-between each sight. I would recommend this ghost and legends tour to any couple visiting Prague, even if you're not into the paranormal.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you so much for your nice review! :)

Ghosts of Prague come Alive!

Can really recommend, it's worth it
Tor_H, Mar 2023
David had a fantastic way of telling the stories during the nice walk. Whatever he was asked of related to the walk, he had good answers. .

Nice tour and fun stories
Kimberly_W, Mar 2023
We had Daniel as our tour guide. Apparently he is rather new in town so we didn’t expect too much in-depth knowledge of Prague. He still managed to make the stories he told very interesting and it was fascinating to listen to him. Some people seem to expect crazy scary stories that keep you up at night. If you do, a movie theatre might be a better choice. Some expect a tour about architecture or historic buildings. There might be better tours for that. The stories told here are about individuals of medieval Prague and their lives. Most of the time some supernatural aspect is included but not always. The only problem might be the price. As it is a walking tour the cost for the company can’t be that high. We were about 10 people, but there was a second guide with another 15 people so with a Ticket price around 16€ they made 400€ in 90mins. I’m assuming the guides don’t get much more than minimal wage the profits are pretty good… We would be happier to recommend it, if they maybe charged 10€.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you for your review, we appreciate your opinion. Daniel, although a fairly new guide, is popular among our guests, and as all our guides was professionally trained. Of course, the expectations of the participants may be different, but they should be based on the description of the tour content, which is clearly stated on all our promotional material as well as on all websites. Regarding the contested tour price, we need to mention that average educated person should be aware of the difference between gross and net profit. Our company employs team of professionals who take care of the guides (hiring and training), the entire operation of the company, accounting and marketing. We cooperate with various resale channels where commission costs are considerable. In the Czech Republic, there are the highest contributions for health and social insurance in whole EU. Moreover, every entrepreneur have to pay other overheads such as payments for renting the office, utilities, VAT taxes, uniforms for guides, etc. Also, covid loan payments to the bank must be taken into account. Despite these considerable costs, we try to keep the prices of tours as low as possible.
Ghostly Experience

Allan was our tour guide. Very good and the stories were excellent. It tried to snow before but Allan stopped it. There was just enough people in the tour.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you
Amazing Tales
Nilsa_V, Mar 2023
Loved the legends and tales. Allen was an amazing tour guide. He was so knowledgeable of the tales and very personable. Definitely would recommend him for future tours.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Thank you
Second visit, not as good.
Luke_R, Mar 2023
This is the second time I’ve done this tour and was really looking forward to doing it again. However this time the guide just didn’t have the enthusiasm to draw an audience. Unfortunately she also struggled with English. We were the second party to leave the group before it finished after the third stop. Very disappointed.
Response from Host, Mar 2023
Dear Luke, we are very sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations. All our guides have different style of delivering the stories. Some of them concentrate more on making their audience laugh, some of them want their audience to become conscious of how dark the history of the Old Town of Prague is and they might come up with less jokes. However, they all receive great reviews by our customers, no matter the style of their storytelling. Through training we also always make sure that each one of our guides speaks fluent and understandable English. We know that it is sometimes hard to hear the guide in a bigger group or in noisier places. However, do not be afraid to ask them to speak up and we assure you that they will always do the best they can! Thank you for your feedback, we hope that it was not your last tour with us and we will be happy to have you next time :) Best regards, Team of McGee´s Entertainment
Slightly disappointing
Terence_H, Feb 2023
Fairly enjoyable but lacked any real ghostly stories. Guide was engaging though fumbled his lines a couple of times.

A great time nighttime tour of Prague
Matthew_M, Jan 2023
Whether or not you like ghost stories, this is an excellent way to see gorgeous parts of Prague other tourists overlook at nighttime. Daniel was an affable and passionate guide as well!

Jody_D, Jan 2023
Enjoyed our tour with Pavel! His storytelling was great fun! Definitely recommend this tour for the end of a day of site seeing.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you!
Don’t bother
Gabby_C, Jan 2023
Don’t waste your time or money Terrible, very few stories with not much substance. Our tour guide David, he spent more time bulling a few of the other participants, I was actually offended by his actions. He spent a lot of time talking about irrelevant information which was nothing to do with the “ghost legends tour” I would not recommend this at all..
Response from Host, Jan 2023
We are really sorry that you felt this way and we apologize to you. David has plenty of good reviews and most people find his comical/theatrical presentation entertaining. We are sorry that his humor offended you, we are sure that he did not mean to bully or offend anyone.
Historical Stories with a Dark Twist
Greg_S, Dec 2022
Check in was quick and easy. The tour team seemed well-organized and had the two groups separated and on their way in no time. It was New Years Weekend and Prague was very crowded, so we appreciated the tour taking us on the back streets on the outskirts of old town where we avoided large groups of tourists. The tour will wind through the back streets to a few specific stops where the tour guide shared stories of figures from Prague’s past, during a more dark time. The stories are interesting, but certainly not spooky enough. The tour price was reasonable for the 90-minute walk through Old Town with a few stories added in. More for history buffs than ghost hunters.
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you for your opinion. The stories and legends are not modified in any way, we are sorry that you did not find them scary enough. We must point out that the tour is also for children, so we stick to stories that are not too morbid.
A very cool experience!
Hannah_D, Dec 2022
A very cool experience! I loved hearing about the real legends of people who lived in Prague and made Prague what it is, with a creepy twist on every story. Very good vibes, just could have been a bit creepier
Response from Host, Jan 2023
Thank you!
Not worth it!!
Rajat_A, Dec 2022
The tour started on a high note with me, my wife and 8 more people having high expectations from it. However, soon it became boring as we went ahead with it. Honestly speaking, with the quality of content and the tour, The amount charged is way too high for the same. The tour was more about random stories of people of Prague. The guide constantly encouraged us to click pictures and was trying too hard to make us believe that we might experience there must be something spooky, but instead it was becoming funny and monotonous.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
We are sorry to see that our tour did not meet your expectations. Certainly, we take your comments very seriously. However, you can be assured that our guests are overwhelmingly happy with the tour, its content, and the opportunities to capture something “spooky” with their cameras in a legendary setting. The stories themselves are distinct but hardly random, all are based on events and characters which are part of Prague’s cultural and religious history, and all have been told for many, many years. But unfortunately, it just was not the right tour for you. We wish you a good visit for the remainder of your stay in Prague, very Happy Holidays, and best wishes for 2023.
Really good evening!
Jessica_C, Dec 2022

Very well informed guide (Allen) and entertaining stories. Too bad that we had to skip some of the most famous places due to the huge amount of tourists
