  • You’ll have spent two and a half hours building up your knowledge of Prague and it will inspire you to explore the city.

Old Town Square

A largely 14th Century area with stunning Gothic architecture and several of Prague's Top Attractions including the Old Town Hall and Astronomical Clock.

The Jewish Quarter

Buildings dating from the 13th Century including the oldest synagogue in Central Europe. See "then and now" photos of what the area used to look like.

The Old Town

The "business" side of the city more than 800 years old, beautiful buildings and courtyards. Small passages and alleyways get you off the beaten path.

The usual meeting point for the Old Town and Jewish Quarter is the Kinsky Palace on the Old Town Square. The building has two entries. As you face the light orange building (the one with the "Narodni Galerie" sign on the balcony), then I will be next to the entry on your right. In very hot weather or if it's raining I'll be just inside of the entry.

Get Directions

Have questions? Here's the most frequently asked.

Do I get a Confirmation?

Yes, after booking you’ll receive an email from livingprague which will contain confirmation of the booked tour plus specific meeting point details including address, map, photos and directions. You’ll have my email address and phone number as well.

Do we see all the attractions?

Each tour will have a selection of Prague’s most famous attractions included but the actual content depends on the area being explored. Weather and local city restrictions may alter the route but rest assured that every tour is full of picturesque, interesting and fun features that will be explained by your guide.

What should I bring with me?

As well as your phone/camera, you should bring with you a bottle of water. In hot weather or if there is a chance of rain then a compact umbrella. When it’s really hot, we recommend an application of sunscreen on exposed parts of the body, cap/hat and a lightweight pair of sunglasses. In a Prague winter (Nov-Feb) consider thermal leggings or at least thermal socks/gloves and a hat which covers the ears.

Remember that if you do not have a data connection you may not be able to access email so consider printing the directions to the meeting point.

Is there a minimum number of people required?

No. Even if only one person has booked a tour, scheduled or private, it will still be run.

"The beauty of Jason's tour is that he focuses on intimate small detail that usually won't be found in a guide book but which brings the city to life. I love walking tours as a way of getting to know a city and this was one of the best I've done"
