We just got back from a trip to Europe that included Prague. I found Prague Walker through Rick Steves' book. We booked two tours with Katka from Prague Walker. We really enjoyed the tours. Katka was professional, knowledgeable, very enthusiastic and reasonably priced. I would highly recommend her company to anyone visiting Prague or the surrounding area.
Beth, thanks for the information. I am going in June and will be looking for a tour guide. Can you say what is reasonably priced so I can get a feel of the cost?
Hi David- we were exploring Prague last week with a truly exceptional guide, recommended by Rick Steves. As for the pricing, I would consider it an excellent value. Petr Zidek freelances as a private guide, and you can visit his website for details: http://www.bohemiantours.cz/
Petr speaks English beautifully, is extremely knowledgeable, and is a genuinely kind-hearted person. His passion for history and humanity shines clearly through. Petr has lived through a significant and harrowing era in Prague’s past, and is able to bring all chapters of Czech history to life with his vast knowledge of literature, landmarks, architecture, etc.
I was fortunate to go on multiple tours with Petr, some with 3-4 people and some with 20 people. Our little group signed onto extra days since we realized right away that this was someone special. Smooth logistics and Petr’s calm nature made the larger group tours feel as intimate as the smaller groups.
Enjoy your trip. You will love this city!
