Historical, cultural, architectural + practical tips with Private Guide


For those with limited time or prefer to get a quick overview allowing them to enjoy the many sites of the city independently. Similar to the main ORIENTATION TOUR but 2 hours only. . . . we walk faster and try to cover most of the main interesting places taking many back roads away from the crowds and Segways!
A great 1st day introduction to the city of spires and red roofs that offers the confused, overwhelmed, disorientated traveler with limited time, just the start they need! Even if you are good at map reading and uncovering the city like a local this tour will save you time and energy and distress by giving you a great overview of not only the historical and cultural background but also something we all need on arrival in a new city - local tips, practical info and how to avoid problems.
You will now have a good idea of what you want to visit on your own - maybe a cafe or restaurant, church, museum or shop! You will feel confident and excited about the discoveries awaiting you!

Itinerary

The exact order and itinerary also depends on the clients and their preferences and needs so each walking tour is a little different. . . . after all variety is the spice of life and stops both parties from getting stale or bored!
A typical itinerary would start in the Old Town Square with an appreciation of the variety of architecture and a quick stop at the major landmarks.
Then after a quick look inside St. Nicholas and Tyn Churches we walk down Pariska and see the Jewish area and many amazing apartment buildings in different styles.
Walk up Celetna passing the Cubist building and cafe and seeing the Municipal House, the finest example of Art Nouveau Architecture. Possible coffee break in the Paris Hotel.
We then pass the Estates Theatre and see Wenceslas Square and the main parts of the New Town.
If time permits we can also see Betlemske Namesti and the Clementinium and start of Charles Bridge.
We can also see the finest examples of Bohemian Crystal in a beautiful setting.

A Recent Review of this tour

David was personable and knowledgeable and a pleasure to spend time with. Prague is a difficult city to navigate when you first arrive, so his orientation tour was appreciated. We ended up revisiting some the sites he pointed out. As a student of architecture he was especially good at denoting the different characteristics of the buildings we went into.
