What is a “free tour”?
Free tour is a walking tour without a fixed price. It is up to you to decide how much you enjoyed the experience and how much you wish to remunerate the guide at the end of the walk. Apart from that, a free walking tour is no different than a standard walking tour in Prague. Except that it’s more fun 🙂
Our free tour of Prague Old Town starts next to the Powder Gate at Republic Square, the Charles Bridge & Castle tour starts under the Statue of Charles IV and the New Town tour under the Statue of St. Wenceslas. See the description of each tour for the starting times and additional details. Please remember not to come to the meeting point without making a reservation.
Yes, normally we don’t cancel our tours due to bad weather. Of course, safety always goes first and the tour can be cancelled if the weather conditions are extremely bad, but it happens very rarely.
Our free tours last around 2.5 hours. The exact duration depends on the particular group, though. One day a tour can last two, another three hours. The average is 2.5h.
The maximum number of people who can book a free tour in Prague is 6. Bigger groups should order a private tour or contact us to prepay for the tour in advance.
After filling the booking form, you will receive an email confirmation with a photo of the meeting point. When you get to the right place, look for a big green umbrella and an ID of Free Walking Tour Prague.
If you are coming to Prague for the first time and you want to see the major attractions of Prague, we recommend to take the tours with Free Walking Tour Prague (link: freewalkingtourprague.eu). The best thing to do is starting with the morning free tour of Prague Old Town and then taking the afternoon Charles Bridge & Castle tour the following day.
If you are satisfied and you feel that the guide deserves to be paid, we recommend 250Kč per person, which is around 9-10 euros. The decision how much you wish to pay is yours, though.
Yes, Prague is an extremely popular city and the number of spots on each tour is limited. Reservation helps us keep our groups smaller, which improves the quality of the experience.
Usually, we wait a couple of minutes before we start and then we stay some more minutes around the meeting place, so you still have a chance to find us. Look for a green umbrella.
Private tours of Prague are available also in French and Polish but the language of free tours is English. It help us keep a more international and intercultural atmosphere during the tour which is part of the experience.
Yes, you can. All tours also published on meetup.com where they are very popular amongst expats and Czechs wanting to learn more about the city. Most popular tours amongst locals are the free tour of Prague New Town and the free tour of Prague Zizkov.
