That’s me, the handsome chap pictured….I started livingpraguetours.com as an extension of the popular livingprague.com website which is listed as recommended reading by Lonely Planet, Rick Steves, Fodors, Rough Guides and a few lesser known publications. I’d always given tours to friends and family since I moved here in 1996 and it was a natural progression to offer professionally guided tours since 2015.
I’m an Owner/Operator/Guide and Prague resident living and working in the city since June 1996. I love the city history and I’m British, although I’m told I sound a bit Australian!
I’d seen how people struggled to understand guides speaking in non-native English. People having a stream of facts and dates thrown at them. No interaction between the guide and his group. I knew that I could do better.
I wanted to offer tours to be delivered in Native English language. I wanted the scheduled tours to be no longer than 2.5 hours, to have a maximum of 6 people and I wanted the option of tailoring tours to specific requirements. Above all the tours had to be challenging, fun, informative and entertaining.
In 2018 Trip Advisor awarded me their Certificate of Excellence. Back in 2015 when I first started I was ranked 326th out of 329 Prague Walking Tours options. Last time I looked I was 16th out of 606 Prague Walking Tours options. I’ve been able to show consistently excellent reviews mainly because I keep the group small and present in a friendly but passionate manner.
I apologise in advance if you read the reviews as it’s often the same text again and again like, professional, personable, engaging, knowledgeable, fun, passionate, fascinating and informative. At least I’m consistent……
In this job I’m not an employee, I’m the boss and I have high standards. By the end of a tour my clients will have learned a lot about the city, been given ample opportunity to ask questions and have them answered completely and truthfully and to leave the tour feeling uplifted and inspired. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
So, that’s what I do but don’t take my word for it, here are the most recent reviews.
We booked Jason for his Czech food and beer tasting walk as he only did small groups. His email instructions for where and when to meet were excellent. As we passed tour groups of 30 people we knew we had made the right choice. Mid...More
