Mark comes from the city of New Orleans, the birthplace of jazz, great seafood, and a very friendly atmosphere. He always wanted to move to Europe and when he discovered Prague, he fell in love with the city. Mark used to play music for a living for a number of years but now he is a magician by trade. He has been in the tour industry for many years. His love for history is given an outlet as a tour guide since he is constantly learning new information and wanting to add it to his tour.
Once every week or two, Mark picks a random direction and takes a tram in that direction. He gets off the tram in various places to see what is there. Sometimes he takes a notebook to write down questions about these places and in this way he learns about the area.
What is your favourite place in Prague and why? On the corner of Lazarská and Spalená in New Town is one of the best gyros I have ever had. The people are friendly, though it is only take-away. Also the Charles University coffee shop in Celetna is a great little place to have a coffee and read. These are the kind of places I like to find. But I will say for me the most amazing place in Prague is no doubt the Castle. I go about once every couple of months and take the tours. There is too much to learn and see to get it all in the first try.

Pavla loves history, architecture, and Prague, with the last being a perfect combination of the first two. Chocolate and cakes are also her big passions. Good for her that the job of a tour guide involves so much walking! The indispensable component of Pavla’s life is an afternoon cup of coffee (with a cake, of course!). Without it, she gets insane. Whenever she feels the need for some relaxation, Pavla hides in the garden and attends on her crops. She is also a devoted mom of the two most intelligent, beautiful, ingenious, cute,… children. What a busy life!

There is only one word that describes this crazy lady with Polish origins: bubbly. Amongst her friends she is known for her absolutely spot-on baking skills and passion for languages. Years spent in Prague also resulted in her love for beer – it’s only fair to mention that she has run a microbrewery for a brief moment within her career. When she’s not researching new pubs and restaurants, you will find her either in one of Prague’s karaoke venues, or at home with a cup of tea and a good book.
