Know More about this tour

Your private guide will meet you at your Prague hotel, and then your city walking tour starts with a stroll through the charming alleyways and streets of Old Town, passing sites like Betlemske Chapel. Throughout your tour, your knowledgeable guide will open your eyes to Pragues history and culture, telling you about the triumphs and tragedies that have taken place in the city over the past 1,000 years.

Follow your guide past sculptures and monuments, making your way to Wenceslas square, one of the citys main squares and the historic center of the countrys 20th-century fight against communism and fascism. As you stand amid the city bustle of the square, hear about Czechs who fought for their countrys freedom.

Continue through the heart of the city, passing the Estates Theatre, where Mozart delighted theater-goers in 1787 with the premier of his opera Don Giovanni, and Charles University, founded in 1348, making it one of the oldest universities in Europe. Head to Old town square, where youll admire its candy-colored buildings, fairytale-like churches with ornate architecture and Pragues famous Astronomical Clock, which dates back to the early 1400s.

Next, we'll take a break at a local cafe for a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of Czech beer (included) When youve refueled, continue your walking tour to the citys old Jewish quarter, where youll learn about the nearly 12 centuries of history of Jewish people in Prague. See the Old jewish cemetery, which was in use from the 15th century, and the Old new synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe.

Finish your tour with a walk to the riverfront, where youll stand on the edge of the Vltava and enjoy a wonderful view of Prague castle and Charles bridge, two of the citys most famous sights.

    He was an easy going, knowledgeable, accommodating and not pushy at all guide. Perfect amount of information and activity for us

    Our tour guide was knowledgeable and competent and eager to answer our many questions.

    Too much time wasted at the university, Could have viewed the astronomical clock when it chimed but timing was 10 minutes out. Sorry but we cannot recommend the private walking tour

    Guide was not a local, so not the same feel as our other tours. Very personable and friendly, but just not up to par.

  • 01-Oct-2017

    Our guide was very friendly but did not seem to have the depth of knowledge or passion we saw in some of the other tours that we had taken. It was just the two of us with him for 2 1/2 hours. I was expecting more historical and cultural context particularly around the 1968 events and the Velvet Revolution which happened on Wenceslas Square. It just felt slightly perfunctory. He did a pretty good job of explaining the Astronomical Clock but other than that it was not interesting. For example, he took us to the Jewish Quarter but didn't give us any historical background about why Prague had such a large Jewish Quarter. We looked through an opening at the cemetery and that was the extent of the Jewish Quarter tour. He was not a Czech so maybe that had something to do with it. All in all it was not worth the time and money.

    I am so pleased I took this tour. The young man, oh how I wish I could remember his name, was amazing. The pace of the tour was perfect. I saw things on the tour that were out of the norm for tourists of Prague. He was funny and interesting and really knew his way around Prague. I told him that I was going on a Jewish Quarter Tour the following day and he quickly structured my tour to parts of Prague that we could go in place of the Jewish Quarter. He even stopped whilst I bought gingerbread, and gave me a shiny new 50 koruna for my grandsons' coin collection!!! Highly recommended.

    Amazing tour with a great person and amazing young guide. Honza made this tour very interesting, and he got the way to engage truly both my girls, 13 and 11 years old. He was respectful and kind, and attentive to our questions and the ones from my little one.
    Thank you ! GUIDE AAA

    My 2 friends and I took this tour our first morning in Prague. We wanted to get our bearings and an overview of the city. Our guide, Ondrej, was fantastic he had a wealth of knowledge to share and made the tour fun. He also gave us numerous insights on how to truly experience Prague. I highly recommend this tour to any first-time visitors to Prague.

    What a great way to learn a new city. John our guide was full of knowledge about Prague and its history. As an added bonus we learned how to get around the city on our on. John loved his country and his enthusiasm was contagious. We visited Old Town, Wenceslas Square and Jewish Quarter. Prague has a rich and varied history and it was great to learn. John took us to a local coffee house called Cafe Ebel. The latte's were excellent and the desserts melted in our mouth. He also gave us some restaurants to try and look forward to them.

    Our tour guide, John, was great! He was like a walking encyclopedia about the history and details of what we saw. Unfortunately, we had to cut the tour short after 2 hrs, due to another commitment.
