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.

The guide lady was great and friendly. I think she is very proud of her country and her city. Walked around the old town and explained history of the city. A relax class. After the tour we went to the restaurant she introduced to us for lunch.

I wish I could rate this more than 5 stars! Martina was an excellent guide on our first afternoon in Prague. Our guide came right to our hotel to start the tour. What a great way to be introduced to this very interesting, walkable city. The private tour is the way to do it. And I would recommend asking for Martina as your guide!

Martina collected us at our accommodation and we caught a tram to Prague's old town centre. We saw all the main sights - Martina's English was good and she knew her history.

Our guide Honza John was extremely knowledgeable and engaging during our private walking tour. His wealth of information and proud Czech heritage was impressive. He took the time to get to know our personal backgrounds and interests in order to make our tour extra special and personal. He related worldly events to his historical information and was fun and engaging. We would highly recommend Honza to anyone wanting a private walking tour that highlights Prague's beautiful city.
