Your adventure in Prague at night begins as the crowds lessen and it gets darker. Your guide will take you through streets filled with legends and history, beginning at the Old Town Square. Take a private tour that takes you off the beaten path.

During your three-hour tour, you'll go to Prague Castle after the crowds and lines have vanished. Visit the monastery where holy beer was once made by monks for the king. Explore the monastery, the New World, Prague Castle, King's Vineyard, and Charles Bridge at your own leisure.

The tour will begin at the Old Town Square, where Prague's history began. From there, move to Paris Street, Prague's most expensive street. Paris Street was once part of the Jewish Ghetto. You will have the opportunity to learn about Rudolph II and the reasons he chose Prague as his home here. Move on to the synagogue, where Golem, the Ghetto's protector, is said to be hidden.

You can stop at the intriguing corner window that looks out onto the charming underworld of the Old Town as you walk toward the Manes Bridge. You will suddenly arrive at a location where alchemists once carried out experiments if you turn the corner.

The stunning views of Prague will take your breath away as soon as you cross the bridge. Tram up the hill to the Strahov Monastery, built in the 12th century. The Hole to Hell will be visible as you descend to the Prague Castle. Continue past the Marian Pillar until you reach Prague Castle's front gate.

The breathtaking view of Prague Castle and the three spires of St. Vitus Cathedral is a particular highlight. Visit Wallenstein Palace, the St. Wencelaus vineyards from the tenth century, and the medieval Powder Tower.

Let's start with our guide Allen, he was excellent, very knowledgeable and told us stories about the city which you wouldn't believe. Secondly as it was only myself, my partner and Allen it was like having a private tour. But saying that if it was a bigger group it would still be an excellent tour. Finally in my opinion this is the only way to see the Castle, you are the only ones there as the daytime crowds have gone it made it so much better, the silence was deafening apart from when Allen talked and his voice echoed round the walls. It was creepy and the buildings took on a very different perspective than in the day which I found disappointing compared to this tour. It is a 3hr walking tour with hills both up and down so be prepared but so worth the aches & pains the next day.

Not as informative as I had hoped but the guide was friendly and engaging and gave good tips on places to eat and things to do later. An enjoyable experience.

The tour was an interesting and informative overview of the history of Prague. I learned a lot that I didn't already know, and our guide Martin was knowledgeable and friendly (and I think he put up with a lot from our group). Prague by night is absolutely spectacular and everyone should experience. My only slight issue is that there was very little in terms of alchemy and mystery... it was much more about history in general. Still fascinating though.

Great tour with an excellent, engaged and knowledgable, guide! I really enjoyed getting to seeing the town and castle grounds in the quieter atmosphere and changing light of the evening, accompanied by interesting facts and stories. The three hours went by fast!

The tour was great, Romeca briefly introduced us to the sights of Prague in the evening, away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Stopover with the possibility to take a typical beer with you. I recommend it unreservedly.

We had Pasi as our guide and were very satisfied. Good mix of legends and facts. Tram ride up to the castle complex was included and beautiful and interesting points were visited. Pasi took a lot of time to answer questions and was able to throw in many interesting facts and background information. Also recommended because of the time: the castle including the Golden Lane were empty and you could really enjoy the sights.
