What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour: Hidden Prague

Discover secrets passages and walkways during your Hidden Prague Walking Tour

Choose a morning or afternoon start time when you book. Then, begin your private 2.5-hour walking tour with a pickup from your central Prague hotel.

Venture away from the main tourist trail to discover the city’s hidden side of labyrinthine passageways, tucked-away gardens and buzzing local districts that many visitors fail to discover.

On route, your guide will share insider facts and stories about everyday life in the city, together with revealing historical insights. Hear how, having been built before the advent of urban planning, Prague grew into webs of cobbled lanes that radiated out from churches and other monuments.

It was only later that city planners added impressive squares and architectural showpieces, leaving lots of little nooks and crannies around Prague Old Town that cry out to be explored.

Follow the passageways that surround the Old Town Square and snake their way to Wenceslas Square and Republic Square. Pass timeworn houses and quiet courtyards, and as you walk, learn the stories of the passing sights, and how these medieval routes are usually only used by locals and never appear on tourist maps.

Make regular stops for photos and feel free to ask your guide to see more or less of any sights along the way. Your tour is private, so the itinerary can be tailored around you.

After roughly 2.5 hours, your tour concludes near Old Town Square.

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.
