Description

Prague Behind The Scenes is a unique small-group tour designed for those who want to explore the city in a less-touristy way with a local. The tour covers most of Prague’s main sights and many hidden gems; the kind of places you wouldn’t find on your own.

This isn’t a herd-style or umbrella tour, but rather a friendly walk with a real Prague local. Small group sizes (up to max. 8 people) mean that you’ll have plenty of opportunity to ask questions, learn and interact with your guide.

And you know what? You’ll have free access to a WiFi hotspot for the duration of the tour so you can post pictures online right away!

You don’t have to worry about the length of the tour – you are not going to be walking the whole duration. Just please count with little bit of excercise.

We’ll also stop for coffee and light lunch at an authentic family-run coffee place hidden down a tiny picturesque street in Hradčany.

At the end of the tour you will also get a little original gift from me. That´s my way of saying "thank you" for joining me.

The tour starts in Old Town and ends on the 3rd court of Prague Castle.

NOTE: unfortunately this tour is not suitable for kids/prams.

  • Small group tour (max. 8 people)
  • Fully certified local guide (born and raised in Prague)

EXCELLENT
It was a wonderful tour, very informative, highly enjoyable and definitely satisfactory. I enjoyed it a great deal and would definitely recommend anyone take it - and, of course, hope to take more of Dana's tours in the future! :-)
The best.
What a fantastic tour of Prague. Dana is such a professional at her job with a wealth of historical knowledge and being a local gave us lots of little known places and events. Dana also assisted us to get the correct transport back to our hotels. This is a tour that I am highly recommending. Paul & Belinda.
Long weekend in Prague
Our guide was lovely and friendly - she was chatty and happy to answer all our questions. She took us to lots of places we probably would have missed otherwise and made sure we were comfortable / if we needed a break! Because we were in such a small group it was much easier to look at things at our own pace and to hear her talking. Her English was fantastic and she even gave us little gifts at the end! Totally recommend this tour if you're in Prague :)
Fantastic
We visited Prague in November 2016 for a weekend trip. We were looking for a tour through the city, which is unusual, in small groups and delivers some great information about the city. So we ended up booking the "Prague Behind the Scenes" from Dana. In the end, it was just the two of us and the perfect tour through the city. Dana showed us the city Prague far away from the regular touristic routes without leaving big attractions combined with lovely little places with no tourists around. The café she showed us was lovely and the cake amazing. To sum it up, we had 4 wonderful hours in Prague with the loveliest tour guide I ever had. On top Dana provided us with information about shops, cafés and attractions even after the tour via mail. W would recommend this tour to everyone, it was fantastic!
Very personable, great experience.
Happily on the day of our tour there was just my husband and I with Dana which made the tour feel as though we were taken about by a friend . Dana was very knowledgeable and was able to take us to interesting places and routes away from the hoards of tourists. She was also able to recommend other local places to visit for the remainder of our stay in Prague which we have followed up on, much to our enjoyment. We can't recommend this tour highly enough.
Fantastic tour in Prague
We scheduled a tour with Dana based on a recommendation from a friend. She took us to a number of interesting places imcluding the unknown areas that most people don't see. Dana really knows Czech history and culture. We realized how little we knew prior to meeting Dana! After the tour, we were able to replan the rest of our time in Prague. We're going to recommend Dana to our family and friends!
A wonderful tour of Prague
Dana was an amazing tour guide. We actually winded up with a private tour which was an added bonus. She was knowledgeable and a genuinely nice person. She took us to sights we wouldn't have seen otherwise, and also to the castle. She also took us to a lovely light lunch at a hidden away cafe. I could not recommend this tour more. It was so nice to have it be personal instead of a large group.
Great tour to see a different side of Prague
Our guide Dana was superb and shared her knowledge with us in a fun and informative way. There is a lot of walking but you don't really notice it as you wonder from one gem to the next. I will definitely recommend this tour to anybody who want to beat the crowds and tourist hot spots!
Highly Recommend
Dana was awesome!! We really enjoyed walking through the city and seeing so many neat little spots. Dana was very knowledgeable of Prague and was a pleasant guide! Great day to learn about the city we were visiting :)
Greatest tour ever סיור הכי מדהים
We had a great tour with Dana. We were very worried about taking a tour with a local from prague. But, it was worth every cent. She had enormous knowledge about everything and not only things that were in her script. She took us to places that were special and that on a regular tour you wouldn't get to. With dana you can get a feeling of the true culture of prague and see the whole story of prague. היה לנו סיור נהדר עם דנה! רצינו מאוד לקחת סיור עם מקומי כדי לחוות את פראג האמתית החשש הגדול היה עם השפה, דנה מדברת אנגלית שוטפת, ברורה ופשוטה. היא חברותית ונעימה ויש לה ידע עצום על פראג וצ'כיה בכללי. בסיור חויבו את התרבות ואת האווירה של פראג. הסיור היה שווה כל שקל! יתרון נוסף הוא שהסיור נעשה בקבוצות קטנות והיא מאוד גמישה בסיור לפי בקשתך. בקיצור מומלץ ביותר!!
It was a great tour. We saw and learn a lot of things about prague!
Fantastic tour!
We had the absolute pleasure of joining Dana on her tour 25th Feb with just 2 other people so very personable. We went so many places we wouldn't have seen otherwise and Dana has a wealth of knowledge on the history of Prague. We all throughly enjoyed the tour and would highly recommend you let Dana show you the sites she is a really lovely guide.
Loved it
Dana really had us enjoy prague like locals. Beside taking you to the main touristy sites, she would take you to all these small spots where definitely they can be missed by tourist. She will give you the small historical stories behind it. She is always smiling...we were lucky that it was my wife and i on that day so we had our own private tour We would recommend dana to our friends if they ever come to prague and want to do a guided tour.
What a STAR!
Hey Dana ... Thank You ... from First Greets to Goodbyes you made our day a special one. We had a great day waltzing around Prague in early Fall as you do .. just missing May Day kisses! and absorbing History .. All Down to you .. much success Robert and Janet XXX
Great Great tour with Dana
In our last day in Prague we met Dana and had some 4.5 most enjoyable hours... we visited areas that we haven't seen and heard some unique stories about the places and people from the history of the Czech Republic and Prague... and we haven't noticed that we walked for 12 km ... we thank Dana for being so professional and lovely and so kind ...what a Great way to close our visit in Prague, we highly recommend this tour with Dana... thank you
Perfect way to see Prague
I cannot speak highly enough about this tour; Dana's Prague Behind the Scenes tour is the perfect way to see the city. Not only are you given a great amount of historical background, you are taken to many sites that large tours would never think to show you. Her WiFi was perfect for everyone's needs and she even helped take photos for me as I was a solo traveler. I felt like I was being guided not only by a local, but by a friend. Some of my favorite moments during my visit to Prague were on this tour. I have already sent a friend from DC on this tour and will continue to tell everyone I know that when they visit Prague, be sure to take Dana's tour. You will not be disappointed!
Outstanding Tour
From the moment we met Dana it was a terrific experience. She made it so easy to meet and begin our tour. We love how she catered to our requests and explained the city, architecture, politics and the people. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Dana. She went beyond the call of duty and booked us dinner reservations and gave details places to see. Truly a great experience and just what we wanted (non touristy) in our city tour. We spent 4+ hours and pleasurable lunch with Dana. ++++ experience.
My best day in Prague
It was an excellent tour with fantastic guide.Strongly recommended.
Couldn't be better than this. Go for it ...
We took a tour with Dana! And we were just two of us. The tour started at 9 Sharp. And she took us through the places of Prague that only a true local would know. We were saved from the crowded touristy streets and roads and we had an awesome time with her. She took our photos and was patient enough to. Stop at the places we liked to half more. She even offered free wifi but which was not needed. We enjoyed walking and exploring Prague on feet for almost 12 kms ... And we didn't realise we had walked so much. Truly I would recommend this tour with Dana for those who don't want any rushed and pushed group tours. We had views of Prague that no group tours could have provided us. Our trip got delayed from 1pm to 3pm but she was never hurrying us and even dropped us till metro station and guided us how to go about in Prague . 😀 Thanks Dana It couldn't have gotten any better ...
Highly recommend
The tour with Dana was exactly what we expected. We wanted to get to know the city of Prague for the less known aspects; things that aren't written in a Lonely planet book. We spent 4 and half hours together in a friendly walk across the city. I appreciated that historical reference were paired with illustrations (old vs now). Finally, we had a light lunch in cozy cafeteria. https://www.tripadvisor.it/ShowUserReviews-g274707-d8673502-r411001355-Prague_Behind_the_Scenes_Tour-Prague_Bohemia.html#
Awesome Host!
Dana was a wonderful guide.. With great knowledge of all things big and knick knacks.. She answered all our questions patiently and was very patient with us all the way! It was a great experience.. She took us to a lovely place for lunch as well.. I would recommend her trip!
Great tour!
Was a fun, relaxed, insightful tour. Dana is a great guide - well researched and knows all the little spots and stories, do not miss this in Prague!
Awesome, best tour
Superb.. walking in streets and alleies far from the tourist crowds. I recommend it to everyone visiting Prague. This tour should be done first day you get in Prague. Dana also is an amazing and fun tour guide. She is so kind and thoughtful. On the day the tour my mobile died and I missed the meeting point and time, I contacted Dana later, and she rescheduled my tour for me.
A Great Day
It was so nice to have a personal tour of such a beautiful city. Dana was engaging and brought us through the most interesting parts of the city. She even step up a lunch at a great little restaurant! Our small group of American University students really appreciated the detail and care that Dana put into our tour.
The best!
It was a great time with Dana! All of you who is interested in real Prague History should take this trip! She knows things which you will not find in guides or in internet. 4 hours was like 30 mins for me. Great trip! Dana will show you beautiful places where you can eat&drink&chill without hundrets of people around. Thanks&greetings to Dana from polish girl in Munich :)
We had a good time
The day of the tour was VERY hot. But we stopped at water fountains etc. We learnt some great little stories and historic facts. The place we had lunch at was also great. I would recommend this tour, if you don't want to be pushed through crowds of tourists in the typical tourist spots. You will see some beautiful little streets and views on this tour. Also Dana is super nice and easygoing - just a great guide. If you want to post pictures as you go, you can log into the portable wi-fi for the whole tour... All in all I think we took approx. 5 hours to complete the tour. Make sure to wear comfortable shoes and bring a water bottle.
Great from the start
We loved our walk around Prague! I would highly recommend to all. We learned a good deal and also had very nice conversation the whole way.
Prague walking tour
We had a great tour with Dana. We walked around Prague and saw some of the "local" back streets as well as some of the touristy streets. She was very nice and her English was easy to understand. I know Dana is a "newer" tour guide and as her confidence grows she will only get better!
Prague from a different perspective
Dana was a wonderful guide! I had been to Prague previously and had seen many of the major sights, but she was able to show me several new parts of the city where few tourists go, including a wonderful cafe where we enjoyed lunch away from the crowds in the castle district. I would highly recommend this tour for anyone interested in learning more about the city's history, talking to a local, or simply going on an incredibly scenic walk. Thank you for the perfect end to my stay in Prague, Dana!
5 Stars!!
Dana was a delightful guide. Her knowledge of the region and historical background was amazing. I will most certainly recommend Dana as a tour operator to all my friends.
I give absolutely 5 stars for the tour!
I joined this tour of Dana when I was visiting Prague in mid April. It was a very pleasant experience with Dana's outstanding hospitality and knowledge of the city! I was a bit worried about the length of the tour at the beginning as I am 7 month pregnant; however, it turned out very fine and Dana was running a very good pace throughout the tour. Highly recommended!!!!! Thanks!
Dana is a perfect guide, very nice, friendly and energetic!) She showed us so many interesting hidden spots) She speaks perfect English, knows and loves Prague and this tour is the best choice if you want to discover the beautiful Prague!)
Personable tour!
I ran into this tour from looking at ideas what to do on a free day my sister and I had on our trip to Prague. I have to say I was very happy with this tour with Dana. It was like having a friend that lived in the city showing you around and sharing a bit of history about the buildings and monuments. It was just me and my sister for this tour and we were able to ask Dana all shorts of questions that we had. She was very knowledgeable about her city and shared to us helpful tips about being a tourist in Prague, which we felt was very useful information. The minute the tour began, it was very easy to have small talk in between sights she was sharing with us and it felt like we were catching up with a friend. I would highly recommend this tour because I wouldn't have been able to gain a closer connection with the city if I were in a larger tour group setting. If you like the idea of a personable tour, this is for you.
Dana is a wonderful guide!
Dana is a wonderful guide and was extremely knowledgeable about all parts of the tour and she offered an amazing insight that we probably would not be able to find with other tour guides. If you want a unique perspective on Prague from a true local, I highly recommend Dana. She was also extremely friendly and approachable whenever we had any questions and knew all the answers to our questions. We also asked for recommendations for restaurants, pubs and places to go and was so helpful with her suggestions! I was so engaged I didn’t even use the free wifi she had :-). Thank you very much for your time Dana!
She was fab! Very friendly and very accommodating. Must-take tour when in Prague.
I'd like to give Dana and her tour a 5-star rate. We had an excellent time together although it was snowing all the time. Dana is a positive person and made us feel very welcome in her city. I wish her all the best and a wonderful time with all the other "like a local"-fans :)
Exactly what we wanted!
This tour was absolutely wonderful and exactly what we wanted. Dana is so energetic and incredibly bright. She knew the answers to all of our questions and her English is impressive! We loved the small group tour (it was just my husband and myself + 1 other tourist), and it was so much fun to experience Prague through Dana's eyes. We avoided the Charles Bridge and the Astronomical Clock, thank goodness, as the city was absolutely mobbed. Instead we got to see some unusual sites and learn a lot of history about the city that we otherwise would not have experienced. I had been to Prague before and I hadn't seen anything on this tour. We absolutely loved this experience and adore Dana, and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a a really solid tour in Prague.
Thank you for the experience!
We did the Behind the Scenes tour in Prague last Sunday (27th December). Our local guide Dana was very friendly and showed us some nice hidden spots in Prague where a tourist normally wouldn’t go. We had a small group (4 persons including me and my boyfriend) so we could ask a lot of questions and had time for a personal talk while we were walking in this beautiful city. It was nice to speak to Dana because she knows and loves Prague, and her English was really good! For lunch she took us to a typical small place in Hradcany. The service was a bit chaotic, but that didn’t matter, because the place was so cosy and we were in good company J What I loved most about the tour, was the personal touch… You could talk about everything and there was no pressure of a ‘large group’ waiting for you. It was more like a nice stroll in the city, enjoying the beautiful spots, and listening to an interesting person who lives in the city. Thank you for the experience and we wish Dana all the best of luck!
highly recommended
5* 5* 5*
What a fantastic tour this is, There are free tours in Prague but all are very overcrowded so cannot follow all that is said – What a difference this tour is – so interesting our guide, Dana knew all the historical facts and is a local lady to Prague, she was very nice with a good sense of humour, a real pleasure to have seen all the area with her – nothing was rushed - I would highly recommend to pre book.
Fantastic tour!
Just wanted to thank Dana for your fantastic tour on Sunday. We loved the fact that we could have the small, personal tour which turned out to be just the four of us. It was great to see so much of Prague and not be amongst the hoards of people in other tours of the city. We were able to ask so many questions and didn't feel rushed to complete the tour in exactly 4 hours. You were very informative and we enjoyed your humour. We stopped for a lovely lunch and some hot drinks along the way. Great value for money, easy to book and quick to confirm booking, we will certainly recommend you to our friends who visit Prague Thanks again Sarah
You will not regret it! :)
I met Dana at the meeting point. She is a very cheerful and enthusiastic person. She showed us many different places and provided us with interesting and information and lots of funny facts about the places and the history. I liked the fact that she showed us Prague through her eyes.Also, she showed us places to have a nice dinner and cafe's which I would not have known about as a tourist. Because we were with a small group, there were many opportunities to ask further questions and she new a lot about everything. In short: I highly recommend her as a guide!
This tour was fabulous.
Personal and very informative. Our guide Dana was bright and happy and went above and beyond to show us the city and teach us about Prague. I would recommend this tour as a must do on your visit to this beautiful place.
I liked the idea of the Prague Behind the Scenes tours and in particular the fact that the tour corresponded to the title. Even if I was born in Prague I could discover many new places and see some other ones from a new point of view. The itinerary is chosen carefully to avoid places full of people (especially of those driving segway) and to combine little details that make Prague particular. The approach of the guide is pleasant, combining facts and personal experience. Wi-fi is offered, but one doesn't need it really.
Prague behind the scenes is a wonderful company. it is a very unique company that provides very interesting hikes. The company only provides walks with small groups so there is still personal contact between the guide and the tourists. I had met with Dana (the guide) and made long walk through the old quarter, the lesser quarter (mala Strana) and part of the castle district (Hdrancy) Dana is a very friendly and social woman who knows her city very well. She showed me all kind of sights and monuments and knows a lot of interesting stories.This company is 100 times better than the mass walking tour groups walking or segway . I recommend this company to anyone who really want to discover Prague and know it’s secrets.
