What month do the tours start?
The free walking tour, the select tours, and the private tours run year-round in all weather, and also on public holidays.
Are reservations required for the tours?
Reservations for the free and select tours are not necessary, unless your group exceeds 10 people. For private tours, however, reservations are a must (although short notice tours are certainly possible). Please visit the 'Private Tour' page for more information.
Is it possible to do two of your tours in one day?
YES! In fact, loads of people love our free tour so much they go from the morning free tour straight on to the Prague Castle tour.
Is there a maximum number of people allowed on a tour?
No, there is no maximum number of people for tours. There are always multiple guides to ensure that everyone can be accommodated (each group is split between the guides, with a maximum of 40 people per guide). If you are planning on joining the tour with a group larger than ten people, reservations are required so that we can be sure to have an appropriate number of guides at the tour starting point on the given day.
Are the tours wheelchair accessible?
All the tours contain a few inclines and uneven terrain, and they last for at least 3 hours. Despite this, they are all manageable by wheelchair as long as one is accompanied by an able-bodied carrier
What time do I need to show up for my tour?
It's not necessary to arrive for a tour BEFORE the start time, although of course preferable for a prompt start.
How can a Free Tour be one of the best in Europe?
Because the informed, entertaining, and unforgettable guides on our Free Tours work on a tips-only basis, the highest quality is guaranteed! They'll never pressure you to tip - even though the guides receive no other compensation from our company or the city of Prague. We believe that if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveller. Value for money goes a long way, and satisfied customers tip what they think the tour was worth!
