“Only two of us on our tour so we got Travis's undivided attention and were able to have all our questions considered in full. Whilst we really enjoyed our time and learnt heaps, and went to areas many travellers might not go, there could have been a greater focus on the 'bohemian' aspect.”

“I was lucky enough to have lovely Travis as my own personal tour guide last week and it was fabulous. I was clear to him from the onset that my knowledge of Prague's history was patchy at best, but mostly non-existent. I also told him I like beer. Both of which, were perfectly factored into the tour. It was honestly like cruising around Prague with a friend, and to places I wouldn't have known I about otherwise. Over the course we visited some places in the downtown area, before hopping on the metro to some of the 'cool' areas of town where there were some hidden gems, including a really lovely vegan cafe we went to for tapas after I explained that I don't eat meat. The food was great, and the company was easy. I freely admit that I'm a bt of an introvert, so initially a one on one tour was a little overwhelming. I think Travis recognised that, and soon the tour became more of a 'discussion' allowing me to be involved without any of those pressures that other introverts will experience in such a situation. And truly, after the fist 30 minutes, I was totally at ease. The booking process through Urban Adventures was super easy, and the tour itself was exactly what I was looking for. I can find all the major sites on my own, but I couldn't have gotten as much of Prague's history as I did without reading copious books (of which Travis was kind enough to email me some of the author's I should check out after the tour). I though Travis was a fantastic guide and I couldn't recommend him more. I think he must excel in these types of tours, since his is knowledge is obviously extensive. Thanks again, Travis :)”

“A very enjoyable tour of alternative Prague, revisiting Bohemia as it were, by a learned and friendly multi-lingual guide. This also included sampling local beer, eating a meal in a vegetarian restaurant and treats at a farmers' market. We would definitely recommend this tour to those who seek to learn about Prague's cultural history, aside from the main tourist attractions.”

“Nikki, ou guide, was enthusiastic, personable, and very well informed on Czech history and culture. He made our first day in Prague so interesting and comfortable. Without him we would have been overwhelmed at the traffic and size of Prague. He got us off to a great start.”

While Prague’s city centre can be called magical, the rest of the city evades any proper definition. Each district and neighbourhood has its own aura, and we’ll be here to roam with you through areas that are underappreciated (or just never seen) by most travellers. 

There is no better place to learn about the Velvet Revolution than the stage on which it occurred: Wenceslas Square. We’ll dive into the stories that marked this turbulent period, spearheaded by students and a chain-smoking Bohemian, who led the country into nationhood. 

Afterwards, we’ll quickly shy away from the big streets and find our way into a passage filled with beauty, history, and provocative art before we stop for our first snack, officially kicking off the tasting aspect of the tour with a speciality in a typical Czech bistro. 

Now things begin to get even more interesting; hopping on the metro or tram, we’ll leave the centre and begin to explore other neighbourhoods, - Žižkov, Vinohrady or Vršovice, learning about Prague’s less trodden parts and sampling some of the best of what they have to offer. We’ll find our way to a microbrewery to sample some of the best beer around and an incredible local dish that should be on your must-eat list. 

Then we set off again, learning about what it means to be Czech (and a Bohemian - just ask your guide!) on the way to a unique café for some traditional dessert. After a short hike to the tram stop, we’ll catch a ride back into the city centre to see a large piece of art from a local artist who has made a name for himself, for better or worse.
