What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour: Hidden Prague

Discover secrets passages and walkways during your Hidden Prague Walking Tour

You’ll be picked up from your central Prague hotel in the morning or afternoon and taken to the tour starting point in Old Town. A fresh, new way to see the city, this 2.5-hour private walking tour avoids the major tourist areas to reveal the real Prague, filled with secret alleys, hidden pathways, tucked-away gardens, intimate courtyards, beautiful little parks and buzzing local hotspots.

You’ll discover first-hand what makes hidden Prague so unique. The city was built long before urban planning, making it a difficult city to navigate, so houses and buildings were built around churches and main sights. This crammed the small cobblestone streets, so grandiose squares and architectural gems were erected in major areas to make up for it – leaving little nooks and crannies all over Old Town.

Wander the secret passageways that link Wenceslas Square, Republic Square and Old Town Square. Only locals know how to move from one area to another via these hard-to-find alleys, which aren’t shown on tourist maps. Since you’re with a local guide, you’ll navigate the old medieval streets with ease while hearing the little-known history and stories connected to them.

Stop frequently to take photos, ask questions, and enjoy informative commentary. Your hidden Prague walking tour ends near the Old Town Square. You’ll leave feeling like a privileged Prague local!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2015

We were very glad we had oraginsed this tour. This isn't my first time in Prague and I knew my way around and had done a great deal of reading about the city's history and politics. Nevertheless the experience of being guided by a Czech national and Prague resident was incomparable.
Our guide was Honza who took time to find out what our interests were and tailored the tour accordingly. His English was excellent and we felt we got an insight into the city which met our needs rather than a one size fits all tourist overview. I'd thoroughly recommend this tour and Honza. We were walking around at the centre of the tourist areas and yet we were exploring all sorts of little lanes and quiet squares that I don't think we would have found without him. Fascinating.

This tour was an excellent introduction to the city of Prague that takes you
beyond the typical sites of old. Hzona was an excellent, thoroughly knowledgeable guide - answering all of our many questions and interests in the Czech culture! He took us to areas beyond the open squares and through passages and hidden gardens all the while telling us about Czech history from the Slav settlement to present day. Highly recommend for those wanting to understand local culture. My husband and I were the only people on this tour.

Awesome tour with John Hozan! He was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Prague and all the different secret hidden places he took us to. He answered all our questions though we rarely had any as all of his explanations were excellent. It was just my husband and I on the tour and it was worth every dollar spent, which actually was a bargain. We highly recommend this tour!!!

An excellent tour! Our guide, Dagmar, was incredible. She extended our allotted time to make sure we saw as many "hidden" places/treasures as possible.

Michael was a very good guide, he was on time and very informative. He matched the tour to our interests and we saw hidden parts of the centre of Prague that we never expected to be there!! All together a very worth while morning.
