YOU ARE ASKING WE ARE ANSWERING
Q: “Do I need to book in advance?”
Alternative tour: No, you can just show up at the meeting point and pay in cash on spot to your guide. Alternative Prague Tours happily accepts walk up participants. However, many Alternative Prague customers prefer to pay in advance. Prepayment also helps us determine group size and appropriate guide numbers.
To preregister and pay for your tour, click the “Book Now” button. You will receive an e-mail confirmation and receipt once your order has been processed.
Workshops: Yes, the workshops needs to be booked at least 24 hours prior.
Q: “In which language is the tour held?”
The tour is held in English, your guide is a native Czech speaker. If you want any different language, please get in touch with us and we will find the right professional tour guide according to your needs.
Q: “Where do we meet for these tours?”
Each tour has its own specific meeting spot. Once you book the tour and pay for it, we will send you a link via Google Maps.
Alternative Tour: The meeting point is in front of the Powder Tower in Republic Square. Your tour guide will be waiting for you there holding a black umbrella with colored spots.
Q: “How can I recognize the guide?”
Q: “How long is the tour and how hard is the walk?”
All tours are approximately 3 hours, depending on the size of the group. Most reasonably active people should be able to handle our walks. There are no major hills. We recommend wearing comfortable shoes.
Q: “What if I am late for my tour?”
All tours depart promptly at their scheduled times. Please arrange to arrive ten minutes early to avoid missing your tour. We usually wait for the latecomers 5 to 10 minutes if you will provide us with your email or phone number, we will always try to contact you if we can’t find you at the meeting point.
If you are running late, please call the Alternative Prague Tours at +420777312356, and we will attempt to put you in contact with your tour guide. Catching latecomers up to the tour detracts the guide’s attention from giving a proper tour to those who have arrived on time, so in the interest of a better tour for all guests, please be punctual. Thank you.
