Overview
Go beyond the usual Prague sights on this walking tour of the city’s off-the-beaten-path charms. See sections of Old Town, Mala Strana, and Hradčany that many visitors miss, plus landmarks like the Charles Bridge and St. Vitus Cathedral. Leave the navigation to your guide, who shares stories about the city’s history and art, and because it’s a small group tour, enjoy plenty of time for questions.

My wife, another friend and I spent almost the entire day with Dana. Dana had tailored the tour based on what we’d already seen. She came prepared with a survival guide, wifi hotspot and a binder of additional pictures. She has a love for her city and shared some of her personal experiences that added unique context to the tour. We had already spent some time in Prague and some of the history and insight that Dana shared had not been brought up in previous tours (first shopping mall, butcher shop, metronome, Lennon wall, boxer short protest) I really felt I had a sense of how people felt living in Prague. Dana shared the name and location of some of her favourite bars and restaurants with us. It was a thoroughly enjoyable day. Dana’s passion for Prague comes through in her tours.

Hello Steve, thank you so much for your time to write me such a lovely review. I am happy you were satisfied and that we could explore the Prague together. Thank you also for reading my Pre-arrival kit, I was left totally impressed by how you remembered some facts in details. Creating the survival kit was really very difficult this year but your positive feedback cheered me up so much!!! Thanks a ton! Dana, your Prague guide and friend

I am in the travel industry. As travel professional with very high standards, based on the tour I took with Dana, I'd recommend her 200%! I was in Prague for three nights prior to my Danube cruise. I had approached Dana by email to book a private off-the-beaten-path tour with her. From our very first email communication, Dana showed professionalism and care. I received a Prague Survival Guide from her with updated info. for travelling during the current times. She also emailed me a tour itinerary. I was right away impressed with her, as clearly she had spent a lot of time and thoughts for our tour. I had met two new friends during my first day in Prague, and requested to add them to the tour. We had already been on a general tour of the city the day before our private tour. The places that Dana took us to, are not the typical tourist spots. We had learnt so much about Prague, its history, people, and the Czech culture. Dana has such a delightful mannerism, and her love for her city is apparent. We went to places only locals know about. It was a perfect day with a perfect guide. To top it all off, Dana took us to a beer garden for locals, with an amazing view of the Prague old town. Days after our tour, my new friends that went on the tour with me are still raving about the private tour we took with Dana. To quote their words: "Dana sets the ultimate standards for tour guides." If you are considering booking a tour in Prague, do not hesitate, do not look elsewhere. Dana is your girl.

The favorite part of my experience was having the chance to see alternate places and meet new people in real life. This was my third tour with Dana. Dana is actually a fantastic guide and she always exceeds expectations.

Dear Deniz, thank you so much for your kind words and support here on Tripadvisor. It was my great pleasure to show you less known areas of Prague (Holešovice, Karlín, Letná). Thank you also for choosing Prague to be your first post pandemic destination. Take care, Dana, Prague Behing The Scenes

My husband and I and our two teenage daughters had a fantastic time on this not so touristy tour. We got a look at the city from paths that we would never have known to take unless with a local, experienced guide. As a mother, I appreciated the ease with which Dana interacted with our daughters. The stories and information that Dana shared highlighted both the past and present of this beautiful city. She shared a fun snack with us and gave us a surprise souvenir. I highly recommend Dana and this tour!!
