Prague Behind The Scenes “Light”
3-hour private tour

“I designed this 3-hour tour as a private & shorter alternative to my most popular tour called Prague Behind The Scenes small-group tour. This “light version” is perfect if you wish to see Prague downtown in one tour, prefer privacy and don´t want to spend half of the day sightseeing among crowds. This is off the beaten track tour; perfect mix of landmarks and many local hidden gems. And a tram ride!”

Dana, owner & guide

3-hour friendly introduction tour

Charles Bridge, Prague Castle, Powder Tower and much more! This 3-hour introduction tour is perfect combination of the most important Prague sights and many local hidden gems. Together we will see 10 major Prague sights while walking through picturesque backalleyes and less crowded routes. This off the beaten track tour is 3 hours long, hence great option for all travelers with limited time in Prague. During this tour we wil also use public transport. Like locals do! The ticket is included in the final price.

100% private experience with Prague local

The “light tour” is designed as a private experience only for you and your group. It comes with flexible starting times and can be eventually customized according to your needs and wishes. Personal hotel pick-up is also possible. The tour is bookable either via email or you can use the contact form at the bottom of this page. When I am not guiding any other tour, I am all yours!

Tour itinerary

  • Starting time of the tour is entirely up to you and your travel plans. We will meet at Náměstí Republiky – easy to find public meeting point. Or if you wish, I can meet you in your downtown located hotel (extra charge 10 euro) and then walk together to the starting point.
  • The first part of the tour we will spend in Old Town. This is the area where you will see Municipal House, Powder Tower, Convent of St. Agnes of Bohemia, Rudolfinum, many tranquil back alleyes and riverside with fantastic views over Prague Castle.
  • After 1 hour in the Old Town we will cross Vltava river and start exploring Lesser Town area. We will bypass the crowds and still see all the “hotspots” like Charles bridge or Kampa island.
  • By this moment, after aprox. 2 hours walking, we will hop on a tram and take a short ride up to the Castle district. The tram ticket is included in the price so you don´t have to care about anything. Just follow me and relax your feet for a while.
  • After 10-minutes ride we will reach the Castle district to see Loreta, and picturesque New World area – tiny off the beaten track quarter often missed by rushing tourists. Our last stop will be Prague Castle where we will explore 1st, 2nd and 3rd courtyard and St. Vitus Cathedral (from outside).
  • The tour ends on the 3rd courtyard of Prague Castle (in winter) or in Prague Castle gardens (during the high season).
  • After we finish you can either stay longer at Prague Castle or I can take you back to your hotel, call you Uber or take you to the nearest public transportation stop.
Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. We loved spending time with Dana and getting a very personal insight into the history and stories of Prague. Wished we’d booked for the first day of our visit to Prague. Genuinely passionate and knowledgeable and always had answers to our questions. Also we appreciated how Dana seemed to tailor the tour around what we’d already seen. And offered great advice on restaurants that are less touristy. Highly, highly recommended. Thanks Dana.

Huge thank you to Dana from Prague Behind The Scenes! The tour you gave us was amazing! It was the perfect way to see your city for the first time, Dana! We learned so much about Prague’s history and we were never once bored (not even our teenagers!). The love and pride you have for your hometown is obvious, and we can see why! You, and Prague both, are a delight! f you’re ever planning a trip to Prague, I highly recommend booking off the beaten track tour with Dana!

    There are also other tours you may like. If you want to explore even more areas and you enjoy walking, I can recommend you my 4,5h small-group tour. It´s a shared tour for only 4 people in a group. Or maybe you want me to design a customized experience just for you? Then a private tour could be your choice.
