Jewish Quarter and Old Town Prague Walking Tour

A Unique Old Town and Jewish Quarter Small Group Prague Walking Tour

Yes, this is the original Old Town and Jewish Quarter Walking Tour delivered in Native English by me, a British Prague resident living here since 1996 and NEVER more than 6 on a group (unless it’s a private tour). Two and a half hours of interesting history about many of Prague’s popular attractions, off the beaten path exploring hidden parts of the centre, fun stories, light-hearted most of the time but serious when it needs to be and overall a unique view of the city for all ages.

Don’t take my word for it. Read the many Excellent Tour Reviews on Trip Advisor. Or if you want even more detail about this tour then read on.

If you’re happy to book places then just click on the “Get Your Tickets Here” banner and in a couple of seconds you’ll have a calendar displayed. Select a date/time that’s good for you and buy the tickets that you need (prices start at 16 Euros for single tickets and there are discounts for couples, seniors, families and groups).

Like the tour but need it on a different day/time? or do you want to make a scheduled tour private? If you have any questions or requests then feel free to CONTACT ME and I’ll see what I can do to fit in with your schedule.

MY TIP: Couples under 70 should buy a pair of tickets as it works out cheaper than buying two singles. Couples over 70? you get a 10% discount on the booking. Group of 4? then the cheapest option is to buy two pairs of tickets. Family? You can use a family discount code but it’s likely that the “Reserved” ticket will be cheaper (plus it allows for a private tour at not much extra cost).

  1. Thank you Jason for a fabulous walk through Old Prague. You made our stay in Prague so much more meaningful. We actually retraced some of the walk to pause again and reflect on the history of this wonderful city.

  2. The tour has really been very pleasant and educational, and Jason is a very good guide/teacher, and a tremendously jolly fellow as well. Greetings from Brasil!

  3. Jason’s tour truly WAS the highlight of our trip to Prague! We learned so much about the city and the Czech Republic history. He showed us the true hidden gems of the old town and the Jewish quarter and really knew so many important historical facts, so we left Prague with a great perspective of the city…now we are looking forward to coming back. He also was able to give us many tips on things to see and do in Prague as well. Wonderful afternoon!! We can’t recommend his tour enough- a must do!!

  4. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on Jason’s Tour so we had a personalised and fascinating insight into the Old Town and its secrets. Very enjoyable and good value for money. Would recommend it to anyone as a an introduction to Prague before visiting other parts of the City. Thanks Jason

  5. What a nice blog! Thanks for sharing valuable information with us. All the information are to the point. Segway tour in Prague is one of the amazing attraction in Prague.The beauty of Prague lies on the architectural establishment. The foods name you have shared really impressive and one should taste these foods during Prague tour.

    1. Hi Lewis, thanks for your kind comments. I was recently reading that Segway Tours are now banned from the Prague 1 historic centre of the city i.e. the Old Town, Lesser Town, Castle, Wenceslas etc so if people want to do this kind of tour they go to places outside the centre. I hope that people booking in advance realise this. Of course, I prefer walking tours to really get into the cracks of the city.

  6. His tour was great. He took me to a lot of places that you wouldn’t see with one of those bigger tours. It was very detailed, informative and interesting. Highly recommended.
