One of Europe's most picturesque cities

As your expert local guide takes you to see top Prague landmarks like the Rudolfinum, the Astronomical Clock and stunning views of Prague Castle (check out our Castle Tour) you and your camera will fall in love with Prague.

A rich and fascinating history

Prague is not just beautiful though - it's fascinating. As this walking tour takes you past must-see Prague sites like Wenceslas Square, the Jewish cemetery and the site of the WWII Prague uprising, your expert guide will take you through Prague's fascinating Bohemian history, before giving you a more modern overview of the dark days of Nazi occupation, including the people's uprising and the assassination of Reinhard Heydrich. You'll also hear about the more recent history of life behind the Iron Curtain in the Cold War-era, as well as the fall of the communist state with the 1989 Velvet Revolution.

What is a Free Tour?


The Free Tour is the best introduction to Prague! A general overview tour including many of the highlights of the city, the Free Tour usually lasts around 3 hours and is provided by a local freelance guide in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, so tour content can vary depending on your guide’s particular area of interest and expertise.

The Free Tour is a walking tour with no need for public transport and is designed for independent travellers, not groups. You can book your spot in advance online or simply show up at the start point on the day. There is no payment necessary at the start of the tour but you are welcome to tip your guide at the end!

We believe in supporting local communities and are committed to giving a voice to some of Prague's best local freelance tour guides, who passionately share the city's history and culture with their own unique and always-entertaining style. They'll never pressure you to tip; we believe that, if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveller.

  • The route covers many of Prague's major landmarks
  • The meeting point is centrally located in the Old Town Square
  • The Free Tour is guaranteed to fit within your budget
