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 🙂
We have different meeting points for English tours and different meeting points for Spanish tours. All of them are in the historical center. Please check the description of a particular tour to see the details. After making a reservation, we will send you a booking confirmation with a map and photo of the place where we meet.
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 in English last around 2.5 hours, the Spanish free tours usually last around 3 hours. The exact duration depends on the particular group, though.
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 tour guide with a big umbrella – we have green umbrellas for English tours and purple umbrellas for Spanish tours.
We recommend starting with the morning free tour of Prague Old Town and then taking the afternoon Charles Bridge & Castle tour the following day. These two tours cover the most famous sights of Prague. Then, we recommend taking the New Town tour to get a better understanding of the 20th century and contemporary Prague.
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 big umbrella – we have green umbrellas for English tours and purple umbrellas for Spanish.
While it is possible to order a private tour with us also in French or Polish, the free tours are only organized in English or Spanish. It helps us keep a more international and intercultural atmosphere during the tour which is part of the experience.
