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 met Jason with the great instructions he provided. Our tour was for just my wife and I and it was clear Jason specializes in small group tours. The scope and breadth of the tour was perfect for us with little knowledge of Prague and/or...More
I would highly recommend booking this tour if you are visiting the city. Jason is a very interesting, personable guy who makes the 2 1/2 hour tour wiz by. This is no mean feat as it was -3 (with windchill) today. We selected the 3-in-1...More
Jason is very personable and happy to answer anything on Prague. Due to him only taking groups of up to 6 we were lucky enough that we were the only three so it was like a private tour. We saw a number of different things...More
