Frequently Asked Questions
Where does the free tour start in Prague?
Each of our tours has a different meeting point. For the free tour of Prague Old Town in English we meet by the Powder Gate at Republic Square. Our guides can be recognized by a big green umbrella and an ID Free Walking Tour Prague. Spanish tours have different meeting points and times.
Is it feasible to do your free Prague Old Town tour in the morning and continue with the free tour of Charles Bridge & Prague Castle the same day?
Yes*, the tours are planned in a way that makes it possible to do both on the same day with a lunch break in between. The final stop of the Old Town tour is just 5-8 minutes away on foot from Charles Bridge where starts the second tour. If you have more time in Prague, one tour per day is of course less tiring, but if you want to see everything in one day, join us!
*This concerns our summer schedule - in the colder months we might have different tours scheduled in the afternoon. Please refer to our latest availability.
Do I really have to make a booking for a free tour in Prague? I have been on some other free city tours in Europe and the reservation was not required.
The concept of free walking tours has recently become very popular in Prague and we have started to receive so many guests that it was impossible to guarantee a great experience without a booking system. The reservation guarantees your spot when the demand is very high.
Is your free tour around the Old Town physically challenging? Can I come on a wheel chair?
The distance is relatively short and the Old Town is almost completely flat. We believe it is suitable for guests with disabilities and more mature guests. Just be prepared that the tour involves not only walking from one place to another but also a lot of standing and listening to our guides sharing their stories about Prague.
How should I prepare myself for the walking tour?
Apart from comfortable shoes we recommend taking a bottle of water, a hat and sunglasses in summer and a double layer of socks, a scarf and a beanie in winter. If the weather is uncertain, you should definitely also take an umbrella.
