Absolute Hidden Prague Tour – secret passages, pathways and gardens
Let’s face it! Everyone wants to get off the beaten track when they go on holiday. But, faced with a new city you don’t recognise and a guide book that probably only highlights the stuff every other tourist goes to see – you’re faced with the dilemma of how to find those cool hidden spots.
Luckily, in Prague, we offer the Hidden Prague Walking Tour to give you just the sort of insider peak of Prague you’re looking for. After meeting your guide, a knowledgeable and enthusiastic local you’ll be off to find hidden and secret ways through Prague’s Old Town, learn the tips and tricks only the residents know, and hear interesting, untold stories along the way.
You see, Prague wasn’t built all at once. No, it’s built up over hundreds of years, starting in medieval times, and long before anyone so much as uttered the words ‘town planning’. Houses were typically crammed in around Churches and main squares. The result is a mish-mash of hidden passages, alleyways, pathways and beautiful little courtyard parks – all of them pretty hard to find and navigate if you don’t know where you’re going.
Luckily your guide does, and he or she also knows all the history and cool personal stories connected to them – and you’ll find out how enterprising locals took what was originally just useless leftover space from the various building booms through the ages and turned them into a carefully planned, interconnected network that allowed them to criss-cross the city with ease.
So, by the end of an afternoon with us, not only will you truly be able to that you got off the beaten track, but you’ll also be armed with the secret knowledge you need to move about the city for the rest of your trip without ever having to bump into another tourist if you don’t want to.
And, if you’re looking for some cool, out the way cafes or bars to check out, your guide can help you with that too.
