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

Prague Private Walking 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 Prague’s 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 city’s main squares and the historic center of the country’s 20th-century fight against communism and fascism. As you stand amid the city bustle of the square, hear about Czechs who fought for their country’s 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 you’ll admire its candy-colored buildings, fairytale-like churches with ornate architecture and Prague’s famous Astronomical Clock, which dates back to the early 1400s.

Next, if you want take a break at a local cafe for a cup of coffee or tea or a glass of Czech beer (own expense)! When you’ve refueled, continue your walking tour to the city’s old Jewish quarter, where you’ll 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 you’ll stand on the edge of the Vltava and enjoy a wonderful view of Prague Castle and Charles Bridge, two of the city’s most famous sights.

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.
