Full description
The tour begins in Republic Square with an introduction to ancient Czech History and Legends from 0-1500 AD. You will see the iconic Municipal House and Powder Tower; then, travel through the New Town to see Wenceslaus Square and the National Museum. On the way, you will hear more about the reign of the Habsburgs from, the 30-Year War, and the birth of the First Republic of Czechoslovakia in 1918.

Next, you head through the Old Town where old, Gothic buildings are more prevalent. You'll be shown the oldest active university in Central Europe, the most important theater in Prague, and will learn the stories behind both as well as little-known historic gems about Mozart's connection to Prague. Afterwards, the Old Town Square awaits you with its world-famous astronomical clock and two stunning, ancient churches. You can stop after for an optional coffee break in a lovely, cozy, local cafe.

The final phase is the ancient Jewish district of Prague with a full, historical explanation of the Jewish ghetto's history. You'll see and hear of many wonderful gems, such as Franz Kafka's house, the Old Jewish Cemetary, the Pinkas Synagogue, and the oldest active synagogue in Central Europe with its legend of the Prague Golem. You'll also be shown the darker side, the historic oppression of ancient Jews, and the horrors of the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia.

The tour will end by the riverbank with a view of the magnificent Prague Castle, Charles Bridge, and stories about the Communist regime, the Velvet Revolution, and the separation of Czechoslovakia. After all this, you'll have learned a full scope of 2,000 years of history, seen the best attractions in Prague, and done something significant for the lives of needy children in the Czech Republic.

This was an amazing tour and I appreciated the fact that we could contribute to a worthwhile charity. Our guide, Filip Huta was very good, friendly and informative and took the time to answer all questions and give some great suggestions of things to do in Prague and things to avoid. I would highly recommend this tour and please tip your guides. All of the money goes to charity and they deserve something extra even though Filip never asked once, or hinted that tips would be accepted. They are greatly deserved as this tour was a third of the price of others that we looked at and I am sure not as entertaining! :)
