DISCOVER PRAGUE THROUGH THE EYES OF A LOCAL


Get off the beaten path and explore Prague's most vibrant non-touristy neighbourhoods with young locals who really know what's going on in the city! Discover famous local contemporary art and design, underground subcultures, hidden street art and graffiti in a safe and respectful way. Far away from the mainstream attractions you’ll find a very different Prague that most of the visitors miss out.

Prague is not only the Castle and the Bridge, there is a lot more to explore. We will show you places where young creative people hang out. Recommend you the most up to date parties and events in the city that even locals sometimes don't know about. With us you will learn about the local subcultures and art communities and visit the most attractive community hot spots in Prague. This is not your usual walking tour, this is something a bit different. This tour is never the same, we are changing the route according to what is happening in Prague in the moment. Each year, we try to change the route and keep up with the changes and evolvement in Town. We always strive to get you into the context, that's why we are also talking about the recent past and explaining it's impact on the culture and society nowadays. To reach some places we use public transport (public transport ticket is mandatory), but most of the tour is on foot (approx 3,5 km). We can't wait to meet you and show you around ;)

Reviews

Such an interesting and unusual tour! Highly recommend it!

Lior L. – Tel Aviv, Izrael

The tour was extremely interesting, very special and unusual, seeing Prague out of the main touristic areas. Thomas was a great guide, seems like he knows the city very well and had the answers to all of our different questions about the city... I highly recommend this tour to anybody coming to experience Prague.

Great tour!
Great tour!

Roman G. – Sao Paulo, Br

The tour was great and very interesting. Our guide Eliska was very knowledgeable, and told us great many things about Prague, it's recent and distant history, and of course about street art and culture. Very recommend tour for everyone wanting to get a taste of the less tourist sights in the great city of Prague.
