What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour: Prague Old Town, Wenceslas Square and Jewish Quarter

Prague Private Walking Tour

Start your 3.5-hour private walking tour with a pick up from your central Prague hotel. Then, set off to explore as you learn about Prague’s incredible 1,000-year-old history. If there’s something you want to see more of, just ask your guide. Your tour is private, so the itinerary can be tailored to your interests.

As you stroll around the history-steeped squares and streets, pass by the Bethlehem Chapel, a restored medieval chapel where the Czech national hero Jan Hus preached during the 1400s.

Work your way to Wenceslas Square, the bustling rectangular street that was the setting for two of the country’s defining moments during the 20th century — the 1968 Prague Spring and the 1989 Velvet Revolution against Soviet rule. See the statue of King Wenceslas that acted as a focal point for protestors and learn about the Czechs who fought for their country’s freedom.

Pass the Estates Theatre, where Mozart conducted the premiere of his opera Don Giovanni in 1787, and see Charles University, one of Europe’s oldest universities, and then head into the Old Town Square, the medieval heart of Prague.

Hear how it started life in the 12th century as the city’s main marketplace, and admire the candy-colored buildings, grand churches and mechanical Astronomical Clock, dating back to the 1400s.

Refuel with a drink (own expense) and continue to the former Jewish Quarter. Amble down the elegant streets as your guide tells tales of Prague’s age-old Jewish heritage, and see the Old Jewish Cemetery and Old New Synagogue, Europe’s oldest working synagogue.

Lastly, walk to the Vltava River to snap photos of huge, hilltop Prague Castle and the enchanting Charles Bridge. Your tour then ends in central Prague.

It was an excellent tour. The guide was excellent and very knowledgable. It was so nice to have a private tour so that we could move at our own pace - ask questions and see as much as possible in the magnificent city of Prague. One of the best tours that I have taken.
