What's in our tour?
Our Old Town tour runs at 1.45pm rain or shine on Tuesdays and Fridays, by reservation
IMPORTANT NOTE: This walking tour of the Old Town gives you the Prague landmarks and the atmosphere that make Prague Europe’s #1 short-break destination.
We meet at Mozart’s favorite spot in Prague: the Estates Theater, where he premiered the unforgettable Don Giovanni’.
We then walk to the meeting point of every European jet-setter: Old Town Square, locally known to us as ‘Staromak’.
We step on the square in time to be prepared and see the world’s oldest working clock in action at 2pm: the chiming of the Astronomical Clock, the pride of Prague.
The Old town walking tour then embarks on an intricate journey through the maze of old-town Prague that includes the Tyn Church, Prague university, the extravagant Paris street, and many picture-perfect back alleys.
A new aspect of Prague then comes to life when we enter the Jewish ghost town – once the home to a vibrant Jewish community before Nazi occupation and assassinations.
The finale is at the Rudolfinum theater, with possibly the single best view over the river and the Prague castle.
