The Perfect Introduction to the Historic Heart of Prague with Private Guide
At last - enfin! A great 1st day introduction to the city of spires and red roofs that offers the tired, confused, overwhelmed, disorientated traveller 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 or being taken for a ride!
At the end you will have a good idea of what you want to visit on your own - maybe a cafe or restaurant, church, museum or shop! At the end you will feel confident and excited - and impatient to experience new pleasures, tastes and knowledge in this wonderfully preserved central European city.
All is in walking distance and there is something visually captivating at every turn. The Royal or Tourist mile is mainly avoided! I want to share my enthusiasm, interests and knowledge with you.
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 or Cubist Cafe.
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.
As a last surprise we can enjoy the finest examples of Bohemian Crystal in a beautiful setting.

We had a wonderful time with David, he was very knowledgeable about Prague and gave a wonderful tour for two tourists and two students here. Worth every penny.
