I started livingpraguetours.com as an extension of the popular livingprague.com website. 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'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.
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......

You’ve heard the expression “my vacation is my vocation” or vice versa. 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.
So, that’s what I do.
