What You Can Expect

Prague Ghost Walking Tour

Prague Ghost Walking Tour

As dusk falls, make your way to the meeting point in Prague Old Town. Greet your guide, an expert on the city’s often violent past, and set off on your 3-hour walking tour.

To add to the sense of suspense, the exact route of your walk will only be revealed on the evening itself.

Stroll the lanes of the Old Town as darkness gathers, and hear about the shadowy figures and fables that still hang like a pall over the lamplit streets.

Pass the Astronomical Clock and St Nicholas Church, and walk to the Charles Bridge as your guide shares facts about its bloody past. View the eerie, silhouetted statues and hear how they once gazed on the severed heads of execution victims dangled from the bridge’s tower.

Head into the atmospheric Jewish Quarter, the home of several creepy graveyards, and puzzle over some of the mysteries associated with the neighborhood.
 
Delve into more darkened corners and alleyways as your guide teases out more dastardly tales. Visit a courtyard stalked by a long-dead Turkish soldier, and hear the legends of the Infant Jesus of Prague and the decapitated woman called Laura who supposedly roams the city in an unending search for her long-lost head.

Duly spooked, your tour ends safely in Old Town Square.

We were the only members on this tour. Our guide was full of interesting stories and took the time to stop and let us enjoy the light show and Astronomical clock. It was well worth the effort.

Zdenek was brilliant!
There was only us 3 on the tour and he did a great job, lots of interesting local knowledge and facts and excellent stories for us.
Would highly recommend this tour as it shows you little things you wouldn't oridnarily see or notice.
A good 2 and a half hour walking tour, thoroughly enjoyed it!

Guide was very knowledgable about Prague history. Although told of some Peague mystery murder stories not really a ghost walk and not scary so probably need to relabel tour. Knew this from previous reviews so not expecting ghost/scary walk. Put on your walking shoes as you will cover a lot of ground. Totally worth the night tour to see beautiful Prague by night.

The meeting spot was easy to find and the guide was waiting. She was very knowledgeable about the history of Prague and its local lore. If you are considering doing this tour take it at the beginning of your stay to help orient you with the city and to help you choose site seeing priorities.

This is a great tour, and our guide was fantastic. It was just my wife and I that night, so it was basically a private walking tour of the city. Many macabre stories, and Zola was able to bring life to the history of the city, things we hadn't heard about in much detail. Would recommend it more for people with an interest in history rather than those looking to be scared.

First of all i should regret about management of tour provider. On planned date i've been at pick-up point 20 minutes in advance. At pick-up time nobody has arrived. There was no guide. There were two more spanish woman booked the same tour in spanish via another agent but with the same operator. They told that there was second failed attempt to take this activity.
After some time i called to operator office and manager told me that i was late and group had been departured. He rescheduled tour for me on august, 11.
And now about tour. Our guide Alice was awesome. She guided us across city districts with a lot of stories, legends and facts.

An insight into to the 'darker side' of Prague. A good coverage of the old town and Jewish area with a reasonable amount of walking, but certainly not a difficult walk - more like a well timed wander with dialogue.
