Radovan does a very good job of leading to some very good locations for photography. He knows all the little side streets and locations to frame the icons of Prague in excellent compositions. His insights to locations will save you lots of time getting great images. I took a night tour from 2:15 AM to 7:15 AM and I was able to get great images without the crowds. I would recommend Radovan if you want to take the best advantage of your time in Prague.

I did both the sunset and the Dawn tour with Radovan in late May.
This young man knows Prague like the back of his hand and took me to all the locations. We did some serious hiking uphill and down hill to find different vantage points. So bring good walking shoes.
If you want unique photos of the beautiful city of Prague this is the way to do it!

I'm glad you liked the tour! Yes, we have walked quite a lot. It depends on current sun position and cloudiness. Unfortunately the best vantage points are farther away in the summer season than in the winter. We sometimes also use taxis.

I joined Radovan for the night/sunrise photo walk (3am-8am yesterday). From the very beginning to the end, Radovan was amazing/inspirational and made the walk so much fun that time just flew by. I've come away with some truly exceptional photographs… some of the best that I have ever taken - all thanks to Radovan.

This was my third photo walk in as many days in Prague (with 3 different companies) and by far this was the best. Even in the pouring rain (and wind!) at 3am on Charles Bridge, Radovan made the shoot fun and I have incredible photographs that captured the moment perfectly. He is calm, patient and professional with such attention to detail. So talented and a real pleasure to learn so much from him.

Happy happy happy - THANK YOU SO MUCH RADOVAN :)

I filed a complaint about my recent tour experience with this company. My friend and I showed up at the meeting point for our tour at 6:45 p.m. The directions said to meet at the surface vestibule of the Malostranka metro station near the statues. We did get to the station, but only trams are visible from the street; it was not clear that underground/metro trains were also serviced at this station, as this cannot be seen directly from the street. The instructions also said to wait near statues. There are several statues in that area, and therefore we waited in front of the "vestibule" that was right between two statues. We looked around and around for anyone who looked like a guide or for more people carrying camera gear that might be with our group. We walked up and down the area for 30 minutes and never saw anyone that looked like a guide or a group of people for a photo tour. At 7:15, I emailed the support address listed on my voucher to explain what happened, guessing that our tour was cancelled, but maybe we didn't get notified. At 7:20, I received a call from the guide saying, "Where are you? I've been waiting around for 20 minutes for you." His demeanor was rude from the first interaction. I explained to him that we'd been searching for him for 30 minutes, too. We finally figured out that he was waiting across the street inside a building by an escalator. None of those identifying location marks were mentioned in the directions we were given. There was no mention of having to be inside anywhere or being near an escalator; if that had been listed, it would've been very helpful!

The guide proceeded to speak to us in a very condescending manner, pointing out, "See, this is a statue, this is the escalator down to the trains, this is a vestibule." He did not need to treat us in that manner. There were 3 "vestibules" outside and multiple statues in the area, which might make it difficult for tourists to figure out the right location. I said, "All of those things are also outside. These directions are not clear." He asked if we had tripods, and I said, "No. I received an email several weeks ago asking me if we were bringing tripods, and I sent a response saying that we would not be bringing them." The guide responded, "Oh, I wasn't told then. I was only told about tomorrow night." There definitely seems that there is a gap in communication between the company, customers, and guides. Our guide then proceeded to tell us that the tour is 2.5-3 miles of walking, and the first part is straight uphill. I said, "I can't do that. I have a back condition; the tour info stated it was only a little walking. Nothing was mentioned about a long distance or going straight uphill." 2.5-3 miles is far more than "a little walking"; the tour description is misleading. The guide then told us that for 48 CZK we could take the train up the hill instead. I think it is unprofessional to expect us to pay extra to take a train when the description was not clear about the route in the first place. I never would've booked a tour like that had I known the distance or the grade. I also highly doubt that going straight uphill is "wheelchair accessible", as mentioned in the description below.

We did buy the tram tickets thinking that it might still be okay, but my friend then decided that it was not worth the hassle at that point, given the interaction up to that point. I told the guide that we had changed our minds, that because the experience so far had been so negative, we did not wish to continue with him. He then again told us where the meeting point was and how we could've found out; we had already heard this from him - he did not need to repeat it to us and be rude. The one good thing I can say is that the guide did give us the correct tram number to take back to our hotel. However, as we were walking away to catch the tram, he said to our backs as we were walking away, "You know there are no refunds, right?" I informed him that I would deal directly with the company about filing a complaint. We never even took one photo!

I do feel that in this case, I should've receive a refund, given the poor/unclear directions for the meeting point, the inaccurate information listed about the tour, and the way the guide treated us upon meeting him. However, a refund has been denied.
This company should ensure better meeting instructions for customers, truthful tour descriptions, and professional interactions from the staff so that no one else has to go through this kind of experience when they book a tour.

After this experience we decided to change route of this tour that the whole journey is downhill (although all other customers, including families with children, and the elderly have mastered the route). Because of that we have also changed the meeting point, which is now at a precisely recognizable address. We will still walk to get to locations. The whole route had about 2,4 miles what requires average speed about 53 feet per minute. The new route is even shorter (2 miles). We make it easy with very slow walk and with more than 20 stops for photo shoot. In response to customer's review, we would like to apologize for the hot, bad day customers were having, so they never came to the metro station entrance for it and stayed waiting in the middle of park across the street. Maybe the guide was a little frustrated also, after he walked many times around and called international to find customers, and then he had half an hour less time to catch a key location with the sunset. So he probably hinted that it is necessary to go faster and described the path as more strenuous in order to prefer transport that is unfortunately not payed part of the tour. We are sorry for this misunderstanding.

This walking tour takes you to unique vantage points in the early morning and evening to catch the perfect light and the results are outstanding. This city was meant to be photographed and this is the opportunity to get the best views in the best light. Sunrise near the castle and watching the sunset and the evening lights of the Charles Bridge was magical!

I have booked the morning tour with Radovan and enjoyed it very much. We meet very early at 5am when the streets were empty and we had the whole city for ourself. Radovan showed me many places where we took pictures. On every location he showed me on his tablet some examples how I could photoraph a good picture at this location and gave me tips from where I could make a very similar picture. It is very helpful having this inspiration before taking the picture. If you you are interested in shooting as much classical and not that usual pictures as possible from Prague I can highly recommend Radovan for helping you with it.

Thank you for nice words, Jürgen! I saw your album and found that you visited some places again and took more photos with different light. I am pleased to recognize my advice on some of them. I also knew that the student could be better than a teacher. I made some unique photos that morning too and that does not happen often. I already shared the one with the swan against the sun. If you want, share a few samples here on TripAdvisor too. I wish you a lot of other excellent photos!

Had a great early morning walk with Radovan. Did not know what to expect really, but Radovan knew all the best locations around Prague for taking early morning pictures, he gave me some good advise and I really learned that it's not just about pointing and shooting pictures, but he made me think more of composition. Recommend this to anyone who loves taking pictures.

Thank you for the nice words a well as for sharing your photos from Prague! I saw them and they are perfect! By most of them I did not notice anything to improve. I do not understand how did you make so bright and colorful picture of the castle and bridge. I am not sure whether I have got similar results with such settings. What I like most is the photo of me! I never thought that I will be the subject of the photo tour! :-) Thank you very much and wish you lot of excellent photos!

In this walk, we began at dawn at the top of the hill and worked our way down by the monastery, palace, touristic district, Charles Bridge, and into the Old City. It took about 4 hours and we covered several miles of hilly terrain on foot.

As promised, our guide was an experienced photographer. He was outstanding. Although I had worked through the same area myself the day before, I had missed about 90% of the best photographic opportunities--he really knows the area and its most photogenic spots. As promised in the description, he made suggestions about exposure settings and other technical issues. But in my opinion where he really shone was in his aesthetic advice: he suggested shot compositions and critiqued our shots, giving us plenty to time to redo them and get them right. I saved some of my before and after compositions, and the improvement is so striking that it's almost embarrassing. He was approachable and made sure to spend time with each of us.

Between the beautiful city itself, the well chosen itinerary, and an outstanding photographer-guide, you will learn a lot about how to see like a photographer, while also creating images of Prague that you will cherish. This tour was an incredible value.

Some practicalities: We met just before dawn and got started promptly. We walked continuously for four hours, most of it downhill. The streets were mostly cobblestone. Wear comfortable shoes. The temperature obviously also warmed up over these hours, so dress in layers. Although this was more of a stroll than a workout, we also did not stop, so bring some protein bars and a bottle of water. On our particular walk, there were three participants plus the tour guide.

Cizar was an excellent tour guide and very helpful. We had a great time. I did capture some great pictures of Prague. The only disadvantaged of dawn walk is the palace lights are shut down after midnight. I would definitely recommend walk for photographers.

Thank you for your feedback, Rajesh. You are right that palace lights are off after midnight, but fortunately we had many possibilities for photos with street lights and later colorful sky. The most important thing now is to choose a suitable place where is no visible any of many reconstructions in the city. Radovan
