What will you find in this free tour?

A visit to Prague is a captivating experience. Its streets and monuments accumulate centuries of history, so much so that they can make the traveller dizzy, so what better way to get to know it than with our guides?

Our free city tour starts at the Old Town Square (Staromestské náměstí), for centuries the heart of Prague. Through its buildings, we will learn about a fascinating history that reflects the many vicissitudes the city has gone through, from fierce battles to splendid royal courtships to famous defenestrations. Among all these monuments, one stands out that fills its inhabitants with pride: the incredible astronomical clock that presides over the tower of the Old Town Hall. For no less than six hundred years, this complex mechanism has aroused the admiration of locals and foreigners alike, a perfect occasion to explain to you what mysteries its many elements hide.

Once outside the Old Town Square, you will start a walking tour through many of the most representative streets of Prague. We will see buildings as important for the Czech people as the Estates Theatre, where the Austrian genius Mozart premiered his immortal Don Giovanni in 1789. As well as the University of Charles IV, the beloved king who in the 14th century knew how to make Bohemia a rich and powerful kingdom. References to this monarch are almost omnipresent, yet he was responsible for many of the works that made the city great, such as the New Town.

We will visit the spectacular Gunpowder Tower, a Gothic mass from which we will walk through narrow streets to the old Jewish quarter. Today, its elegant streets are a heterogeneous mix of modernist and older buildings, where the most exclusive boutiques coexist with old synagogues and its famous cemetery. This mixture gives a special touch to a neighbourhood that saw the birth of one of the most famous Czech writers: Franz Kafka; whose monument will show us the life and work of an exceptional witness of all this urban metamorphosis.

We will finish this Prague free walking tour by visiting the most emblematic places of the old city, the Rudolfinum, headquarters of the Czech Philharmonic, and where we will put the colophon of this visit with one of the most spectacular views of Malá Strana and Prague’s Castle.

We had a wonderful walking tour with Scott! He is a wealth of information, kind and funny. Booking the tour and connecting with the guide was very easy. At the conclusion of the tour, we could've kept going it was so engaging. A highlight of our time in Prague!

We had a great and very insightful Prague Old City tour with tour Guide Sean. He was great and very knowledgeable sharing all the interesting facts with a great sense of humor, making our tour a lot of fun. In fact, so much fun we decided to join him the same afternoon for the Castle tour as well and again he ensured for a fun and interesting walking tour.

One of the best walking tour I’ve done. Scott is not a local, but it feels like it. He knows everything about the history, the culture and the beers. Ask him for recommendations and he will give you all the options. Thank you, Scott!

We did an old town tour with Sarah. She led a fantastic tour with excellent historical knowledge which really helped build our understanding of the city and its history. Sarah's style was really engaging and she was openly approachable for questions and recommendations on all aspects of the city. The tour was around 2.5 hours with a 15 minute break for coffee and to warm up, but it didn't feel long. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone visiting Prague for the first time!

We enjoyed the Prague walking tour (old town, new town and Jewish quarter) a lot! Our tour guide Ian shared many interesting insights into Prague's history with us. The tour was very entertaining and informative and Ian has a great sense of humor as well :)

This tour for me was essential, in order to see and experience Prague with a context.
Scot was absolutely lovely: informative but not heavy. Fun, interesting, very articulate and easy to understand. He obviously is passionate about Prague and it's history, people, culture, politics- which makes you as passionate. Thank you Scott for a fantastic tour and for great recommendations for our time in Prague.

We were on the New Town tour with Paul. I can’t recommend it enough. It was exactly as I was hoping for as I wanted to get a better understanding of the locals’ recent history and culture. One can see that Paul is passionate about history. He shared many interesting historical facts but also some great tidbits like where is the best place to buy chimney cakes or beer.

Initially my partner and I had just booked the morning Old Town tour but we loved it so much that we came back for the afternoon Castle Tour. I actually think most people on the tour did the same as us. The main reason for this was due to our tour guide Aris. He was a brilliant tour guide, full of knowledge with a great sense of humour. I would highly recommend doing this tour on your first day so you fully appreciate the beauty and history of Prague. It was the highlight of our trip. Thanks Aris

We had Ian on an Old Town tour and he was absolutely amazing! One of our favourite walking tours we’ve done in Europe! Great mix of history, stories and humour - all done in an easy to understand manor. He was very knowledgeable and super helpful! Would highly, highly recommend this tour!

Easy booking and great experience with the 2 tours we've done with these guys. We took the old city tour and the castle tour : both were fun and informative, I'd definitely recommend booking these tours! You'll learn lots of stuff about history, culture, and notice details you wouldn't have noticed by yourself.

The Prague tour with Sarah was awesome! The weather was cold and wet, but Sarah had the energy to keep us all engaged and moving. The morning tour was so good, I signed up for the afternoon tour!! The passion Sarah has for her craft made this one of my most memorable days in my life. Thanks Sarah!

I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to go on both of the free walking tours that is offered, I would highly recommend doing both. Paul was amazing for the Old Town and Jewish Quarter, and Scott was absolutely wonderful too for the tour of the Prague Castle. Loved it!
