Mike was our tour guide and he gave us a great tour. We enjoyed seeing some things that we most certainly would have missed had we not taken this Hidden Gems of Prague tour.

Surprisingly, one of the things we’re still talking about is the never stopping elevator he showed us. We learned how the tram works and we saw churches that we wouldn’t have seen because of their being off the beaten path. It was a great tour for the four of us who took it!

Description

Although Prague attracts millions of visitors every year, there are many amazing sights that remain relatively undiscovered, each with an amazing story to tell. Let’s skip the crowded streets and seek out the city’s hidden gems!

The tour begins at the Old Town Square with a brief introduction to the history of Prague over the last millennium. We’ll then explore several back alleys around the square, walking through Týn Court to take a quick peek at two gorgeous churches that were very important for Luxembourg’s royal family.

It's then time for us to make our way to what was once the biggest square in the world – Charles Square. This local landmark also has many stories to tell, having been the site of the first defenestration and a casualty of American bombing in 1945.

After crossing the square, we’ll stop to admire the Emmaus Monastery – one of the few buildings in Prague with an original Gothic structure.

Our final stop will be the Vyšehrad medieval fortress, where the history of Bohemian kings began. The tour ends with amazing panoramic views of Prague city centre and the Vltava River.

Prague WWII Tour
Our WWII tour was awesome!! Our tour guide Jack was very knowledgeable about the events that took place during that time period and the atrocities that the Nazis did to the Czech people.

Jack also went over the events of being occupied by the Russians after the fall of Hitler. The things these people had to endure is just heart breaking.

He even took us off the beaten path for lunch and a pint and recommended a locals bar for us to check out that night after the tour.

Highly recommend this tour and hopefully you'll be lucky enough to have Jack showing you around!!
Fantastic experience
Mike is a very knowledgeable guide we learned so much. And loved the experience.
Definitely we’ll use him again.
Great tour
Mike, our tour guide was great. He was very well organized and informative. My large family were the only people on the tour so we got to ask lots of questions and Mike was great with answering them. He is very knowledgable and passionate and proud of the history of the Czech Replublic.
