Hello, I was born and raised in Prague and I just love to explore every single bit of this magical city. I finished my university studies last summer and now I'm running a young tour company which is trying to set a new trend in the walking tours industry here in Prague. I would love to share my knowledge with you, so if my posts are not enough for you and you want to dig in little bit more and discover the real life and culture here in Prague. Then just join me for the Alternative tour of Prague ;)

Description

We’ll take you beyond the typical tourist destinations to the heart and soul of the city, and explain how Czech society and culture have changed since the fall of communism.

The Velvet Revolution not only gave the Czech Republic political freedom, but also cultural freedom. Our guides will introduce you to authentic local culture that has flourished outside the historic centre, including music, street art, graffiti, and contemporary galleries.

Join us and discover Prague’s social and cultural hotspots. We can share tips on what to do, where to buy cool stuff, and how to enjoy the city like a local young person. We're young artists who've grown up in Prague and live the local culture every day!

decent
for Tomáš’s tour (Alternative Prague Tour)
The tour explained the history of Prague and enabled you to see interesting elements of the outskirts.
The tour is specifically good for those who like design, as he takes you to great venues with brilliant interior spaces and art.
He was well informed about Prague and has passion for his job.
Wonderful Tour!
for Tomáš’s tour (Alternative Prague Tour)
This was a wonderful tour! I would suggest it to anyone that wants a more personal experience. There is a mixture of both historical accounts as well as modern ones. The small group tour was great and I would definitely give it 5 stars.
🔝 tour
for Tomáš’s tour (Alternative Prague Tour)
The tour was very interesting and informative. Charming Sandra gave a cool insight into the Prague's local life, history, modern Czech art and graffiti. Enjoyed meeting her even more than the places we visited. Recommend this tour to everyone who is looking for a different timeout.
Even more than I expected
for Tomáš’s tour (Alternative Prague Tour)
I am an Art lover and thoroughly enjoyed the Graffiti and Street Art. In addition we went to quirky pubs and venues which the youngsters on the trip could visit at night. But the best bonus was Tomas s informative explanation of conditions of life under the Communist regime. Simply and concisely put. I highly recommend any of his tours!

Great tour! Really helpful!
for Tomáš’s tour (Alternative Prague Tour)
Our guide Tomas was amazing. He was very receptive to questions about his explanations and you could tell that he was not just repeating information but very interested and personally connected to what he talked about. He pointed out so many great spots in Prague that I wish I had not taken this tour on my second to last day! Take this tour early so you can visit the amazing spaces Tomas points out along the walk. Worth every cent.
