Book A Guided Walking Tour

There are generally 5 types of free walking tours available in Prague.

A visit to the historic city of Prague feels as quintessentially European as you can get.

The best way to explore Prague is on foot. In fact, many historic areas in the city are only accessible to walkers.

There are many free walking tours in Prague, though they operate really as name-your-own-price tours.

100 Spires City Tours

This company offers a 3-hour tour of Old Town and the Jewish Quarter every day at 10:00 am, 15:00 (3 pm), and again at 18:00 (6 pm).

What sets this tour apart from the others in town is that instead of ending at the foot of Charles Bridge, you will walk across it and end at the John Lennon Wall.

They keep groups relatively small (max 25), which they say allows them to visit the interiors of some churches and other buildings.
