Prague Introduction:

The first tour for getting your bearings. In this half a day your guide will combine a bit of everything. You will see all the most important monuments, learn about our history, habits, politics, get restaurant tips, etc. If you are not too good on your feet you could decide to use some public transport. This is a 4 hours tour.

Prague in Depth:

The first tour for getting your bearings. You will see all the most important monuments, learn about our history, habits, politics, get restaurant tips. If you are not too good on your feet you could decide to use some public transport. You could decide to visit the insides of the castle, or the Jewish museum. Or you could go and visit the other Prague castle: Vysehrad. Well worth it! You will be surprised how time flies in our wonderful city. If 8 hours is too much for you can off course just cut it in two halves and do two half days. Or three.

Prague Castle with Mala Strana:

In Prague Castle you could spend a whole day! This tour will show you all the parts that can be visited: the Old Royal Palace, the Cathedral with the tombs of kings and the grave of Wenceslas, the Basilica, the Mihulka and Dalibor towers and the golden lane. We also make sure you see the guards change. Whatever time is left after the castle you stroll though Mala Strana, the palace town of Prague.

Jewish Prague with The Jewish Museum, Cemetery and Old Town:

You could say that there has always been a community of Jewish people in Prague. For sure since the 10th century. On this tour a guide who has specialized on Jewish culture tells you their story and explains their traditions. You will visit various old synagogues that house parts of the collection of the Jewish Museum and walk across the amazing ancient cemetery. For non Jewish people this is a real learning experience and for Jewish people - for them a look into the past and a chance to see an amazing collection of precious religious and every day items of central European Jews.

Off the Beaten Track 4 or 8 Hours:

The title says it all. Tour will take you away from the known sites into the world of the locals. Even though Prague is extremely touristy you will see that there is a whole world you would have never found. Some of it is very, very beautiful. Other parts are a bit grim. Using public transport your guide could show you the lanes of Winograd's, the villas of Hradcany, high rises at the end of the metro lines or the little down to earth pubs of Zizkov. This tour can lest between 4 and 8 hours.

Prague with Children:

Experience has taught us how to combine the interests of parents with those of the children. Regularly using trams we connect Prague's monuments with towers to climb, labyrinth or Ferris wheel, to more monuments, then may-be a boat ride or an underground tunnel and much more emphasis on stories, myths and legends than in tours without children. Once in a while the parents even get to rest while the guide entertains the kids!

Politics and 20th Century:

In a nutshell: Booming Bohemia at the end of the 19th century, WWI, the First Czechoslovak Republic, Munich, WW2, expulsion of 3000000 people, Communism, 1968, Dubcek, Svoboda, Jan Palach burning, the seventies, Gorbacov, Havel, the Velvet revolution, the Velvet Separation and developments since then and the now.

Old Town Passages and Hidden Alleyways and Art Nouveau in New Town:

In Old town your guide will really show you what a labyrinth it is. Hidden passages, courtyards, alleyways. Within meters you step from the tourist hubs into the middle ages. Most buildings are 6 centuries old or more! Then into New Town, where you keep using back streets and passages and enter quite a few buildings. Now the story is about the National Revival of the Czechs in the 18th century and the development of the more modern arts and styles of architecture. This is a 4 hours tour.

Palace Gardens of Mala Strana:

Only in summer we can make this precious walk. We start with the northern gardens of the Prague Castle, walk through the Castle it self and then through the southern gardens of Prague castle. Then through the many lovely terraced gardens of the palaces under the castle, taking our time to enjoy them and the fantastic views. The Ledebourg, the Palfyoffsky and then the huge Valdstejn gardens. After them follow the Vojanove, and the very hidden Vrtbovske gardens. The tour then ends with a cable car ride to a restaurant on Petrin hill, for a drink. Or food.

Just Architecture and Art:

Prague is the city for walking through the centuries of history of architecture. Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Mannerism, Baroque and so on. To understand the development of architecture one must off course look at the bigger picture. On this walk your guide will explain the different styles by linking the history of architecture with the history of art and the political situation of various periods.

Vintage Tours:

The vintage cars made in the days of the first Czechoslovak republic are beautiful old-timers. To sit in one of these great old cars is a real trip into the past and if you are a lover of old cars, it's a real must. The drivers speak basic English and will give you some explanation about the monuments you pass. You can off course also do this as part of your city-tour, with your own private guide.

The automobile brands that still speak to the imagination are Praga, Tatra and off course old Skoda. The normal cars can fit up to 5 people and one of them, an early bus, up to 12. The standard trip lasts 40 minutes and will start at a meeting point in the center of Prague, but it is off course possible to make longer trips or be picked up at your hotel, if you live in the center.
