Having Fun on the Old Town and Jewish Quarter Walking Tour

This is my Flagship tour, most booked, most reviewed. It’s perfect for the first-time visitor to the city looking for an introduction to Prague, learning some of the history of the Old Town area. As well as the popular legends and amusing stories it takes in both Old Town and Jewish history/events, architecture, communism, world war two, synagogues, churches, Franz Kafka and Czech traditions. Solo travellers, couples, families, friends and colleagues have all enjoyed this tour.

    Thanks for the insight Jason and making the walking tour fun as well.
    Would not hesitate to recommend this tour.

  2. Thanks, Jason, for a great tour of Prague. Our family of 12 enjoyed learning so much from you…and really appreciated how you spoke to both the adults and kids! Your flexibility was super, and your insight into the secrets of Prague made for a fun and informative afternoon.

  3. I just ‘stumbled” upon your ad & am very interested in the kind of tour u conduct. Please tell me more, especially the cost. I will be in Prague
    October 13-16. I was online booking evening events when I saw your ad. Thanx

  4. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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!!

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.
