Frequently Asked Questions
Where does your free New Town tour start in Prague?
We meet by the horse at Wenceslas Square in front of the National Museum and next to the Museum metro station (green line). When you make it to the square the statue will be visible from the distance. Our guides can be recognized by a big green umbrella and an ID of Free Walking Tour Prague.
What is the difficulty of your free tour of Prague New Town? Do you recommend it for senior travellers or people with disabilities?
The difficulty of our free tour around Prague New Town is rather easy. The area is mostly flat, so the tour can be recommended for senior travellers and guests with disabilities, if they are able to walk or stand in one place for over 2.5h.
Is the tour suitable for travellers with dogs?
Unfortunately, this tour is not ideal for dogs as we will be visiting the Franciscan Garden where the dogs are not allowed. If you wish to explore Prague with your four-legged friend, we recommend the tours around the Old Town, Charles Bridge/Castle or Zizkov.
Why is it necessary to make a reservation to attend the free tour of Prague New Town?
Free tours in Prague are very popular and reservations are the only way to limit the number of participants and avoid groups that our guides couldn’t manage. Moreover, when you fill in the booking form we will be able to send you an email confirmation with the map and photo of the meeting point.
How should I prepare myself for the tour?
No special preparations are necessary. Just remember to dress appropriately for the weather and wear comfortable shoes. In the summer we recommend to have a bottle of water with you and protect yourself from the sun. If the weather forecast is bad, remember to take an umbrella.
