SPECIALIZED TOURS


I created some of the specialized tours mentioned below based on years of experience guiding foreign visitors around Prague, and their desire to get a closer insight into Czech culture and/or to explore Prague's quarters off the main tourist path. Some of the tours reflect my lifelong personal interests and discoveries, therefore the itinerary is original and you will most probably not find it in official guide books. I'll be pleased to send you a detailed description of the tours via email on request.
