What You Can Expect

Private Walking Tour: Hidden Prague

Discover secrets during your 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.

Elena, our guide, was absolutely PERFECT for us! She knew plenty about the history of Prague and Czech culture, but also engaged us in conversation to drive the tour to sites that interested us. We were very grateful to have a tour that felt so personalized and added so much to our experience of Prague. THANK YOU, Elena!!

Another fabulous tour. My adult daughter and I were enthralled with the city already, but learned so many new things and felt like real insiders. Our guide was kind, thoughtful and so knowledgeable. A must tour if you are in Prague.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

As we had previously been on a private tour of Prague's usual attractions, we decided this tour sounded interesting. Everything we explored was new to us, rich in history and chock full of fascinating personal interest stories. Our guide Martina was simply wonderful.

We discovered so many hidden gems that we did not have an inkling of before the tour. In addition to the hidden sights, Bill asked Martina if she could show us some Prague landmarks attached to its Nazi and Communist past. She was very knowledgeable and added those points of interest.

I enthusiastically recommend this tour and tour guide, a must see while in Prague.

What a great way to start our visit! Highly recommend private or small group tours as a way to get your bearings and understand the history of a city! Our guide Hanza was really well informed, and gave us a sense of ancient history and more current history of the Czech Republic, as well as hidden parks and art installations. We doubled back to some of the spots he showed us later in our trip! Prague is overrun with large group tours and we felt really grateful to avoid those and have our own private guide.
