If you loose your group during the walk, it is nearly impossible to find them again due to so many groups and streets in the old town. We recommend always to stay close and focused! 🙂

What people say about their experience on this tour

My friends and I had an amazing tour with our our guide Dominic. No one else had booked the tour so we basically had a private tour. Dominic was so well informed on the history of Prague and the country as a whole. He was really funny as well, which added a nice element of entertainment to the tour. I would highly recommend booking this tour if you are looking for a non- traditional city tour.
This tour was interesting and informative. This was the third tour, in three days that we did with Klara. She is an excellent tour giuide who adds to her tours, the things we were interested in. She went out of her way to help us get back to our hotel and show us the great transport system which meant that we made the most of our time in Prague. Can highly recommend this tour, the Jewish walking tour and castle district walk. I particularly enjoyed learning about what life was really like for locals 30 years ago. We always love to do walking tours whenever we travel, its a great way to some of the highlights, get an incite to other things you may want to see and do as well as helping to orientate to your new surroundings.Thanks Klara.
