Are you planning a trip to Prague? Or maybe you are already here? Either way, I bet you have heard a lot about this fairytale-like city, its well preserved sights, uncountable number of museums, gardens, parks, cheap beer and other things that make your guide book so thick…
True. Sometimes, however, guide books will not tell you everything, especially how annoying can be marching with armies of photo crashers along the most touristy routes or how boring is sitting in that recommended “authentic Czech pub” with just tourists around you….you know, those little details hidden between the lines and behind the perfect images.
If you don´t want to buy a ticket to the touristy circus and prefer more intimate and nuanced experience, Prague Behind The Scenes Tour might be a great option for you.
Prague Behind The Scenes Tour is the very first tour I designed for my clients. This special walk was created for all who want to explore Prague in one walking tour. In less touristy way, with local guide and in a small group of max. 6 people. This tour will take you away from the conventional routes, along back alleys to find the city’s hidden gems. It covers most of the main Prague sights and take you to the lesser visited places, too. Great way how to get the best overview about the city. Not only about sights, but also about local traditional businesses, curiosities, nowadays life and recent history.
The best bit? Free access to my WiFi network throughout the whole tour. You can stay connected all the time and share your pictures online right away. Everyone joining the tour will also receive an original gift – Polaroid photo printouts with images of places we visited during the tour: Printed memories of Prague.

WHAT CAN YOU ALWAYS EXPECT WITH THIS TOUR?
The 4,5-hour small group tour covers the most important sites in Prague, including the Prague Castle, St. Vitus Cathedral, Loreta, Municipal House, Powder Gate, Strahov Monastery, and Charles Bridge. We will walk away from the conventional routes, which are full of rushing tourists amd kitschy souvenirs; we will rather blend in with back alleys like locals do. For more authentic experience and original photo opportunities. You don’t have to worry about the length of the tour – we’ll stop regularly and there will be enough time to take photos, use WC and purchase snacks if you wish. We’ll also stop for coffee and a light lunch at an authentic family-run coffee place.
This isn’t a herd-style or umbrella tour, but rather a friendly walk with a real Prague local and fully certified guide. Small group sizes (6 people maximum) mean that you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions, learn and interact with your guide.
REASONABLE PRICE & WIFI
I believe my prices are fair, and reasonable, which might be a bit surpirising in tourism. Yet another prove that Prague Behind The Scenes is standing a bit aside from the mainstream. You will get a four hour tour with a local. Mix of the classic sights with the off-the-beaten-path extras and free access to internet during the whole tour.
These little squares are something I call „printed memories of Prague Behind The Scenes“ Polaroid photo printout with images of places we visited during the tour and everybody who joins my tour will get them as a gift. This is my way of saying “Thank you!” for choosing me to guide you through the city that I love, and I hope you can walk away, loving it just as much.
