The Czech Republic’s compact capital - with its vibrant, historical and beautiful streets - has witnessed everything from Old Bohemia to 2004 entry into the EU. A city made for walking, easily navigable districts makes orientation a breeze. A glorious mix of architectural styles provides a stunning visual history with magnificent castles, monuments, and buildings spanning Romanesque to Communist-era designs. An annual festival draws millions to the city to celebrate its fine beer, but in Prague, you’ll find free-flowing Pilsner in lively watering holes year-round. 
 
Enjoying a private, guided tour with a local will help you discover the sights that tourists so often miss. Hear the intriguing backstories and learn the neighbourhood’s contextual backstories and rumours which bring Prague to life, from the 1993 split of Czechoslovakia into the Czech Republic and Slovakia to the contentious issue of the origins of the chocolate-and raspberry Prague Cake.  

There are no substitutes for anecdotes and first-hand insight – which is why we’ve built this tour: so that you can have a local’s insider knowledge to help you swerve tourist traps, lengthy queues and over-priced nonsense. While you walk the city, you’ll uncover its authenticity through the eyes of a Prague local. 

Your tour is immersive - bringing meaningful and like-minded interesting people together that would never meet if you stuck to the main tourist drag.
