A Guided Walking Tour For Less than the Price of a T-Shirt

You think guided tour – too expensive! or you don’t want to be in a big group or struggle understanding the guide. No problem there as for less than the price of a T-Shirt you can do a tour with me in Native English and it’s limited to 6 people. Entertaining, highly rated tours, great value and a memorable experience. If you are used to taking guided tours or even if you want to try it for the first time, you’ll enjoy it and you’ll remember it long after you’ve left the city. Tips on eating and drinking, saving money, avoiding queues and lesser known places to visit. All included.

We’ve been awarded the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence for consistently great tours. Small groups, private tours, Old Town, Jewish Quarter, New Town, Lesser Town and Castle areas are all covered on the sister-site at

Food and Drink Tips

czech food

You can’t come to Prague and not try the food and drink. Best described as tasty but filling and best tried with a beer. I have a whole section about classic Czech food, etiquette, recommended restaurants, lunch menus, vegan/vegetarian, allergy warnings, street food and there’s a FREE eBook to download from the Shop. You’ll find all the classics and my personal favourites. If it’s too heavy for you then there are lots of other cuisines to try.

Start on the Top Six Czech Food Picks or for my own personally recommendations try the Restaurants page.
