Hello and welcome on the web page of Jana, an enthusiastic guide and a globe-trotter !
As a child growing up in the communist Czechoslovakia I already longed to know what is hidden behind the horizon, to touch and taste distant countries. I spent hours browsing the geography textbook and planning my journeys. But this was just a dream for a girl born behind the Iron Curtain. Later I studied translation and history of art and I hoped that foreign languages might open the door for me - the door I knew must be hidden somewhere in this obscure curtain. The freedom came with the Velvet Revolution in 1989 and suddenly everything was easy. In the nineties I lived in Spain and France, but I realized more and more that my place was here, Continue reading  

Guided Tours in Prague – Overviews:

The descriptions of tours and trips featured at this website are the result of more than twenty years of experience. As such they often differ from what you may find in official guidebooks. Let us take you off the beaten path and discover hidden treasures.

Prague in a Nutshell Prague Castle The Old Town The Lesser Town
The Jewish Quarter        Esoteric Prague Modern History Discover & Taste Tour

The main advantage of the tours my agency offers is that all of them are tailor-made. Therefore, I would appreciate it if you could let me know how much time you would like to spend with a guide on a tour, if your tour is a First Timer, what are your areas of interest, preferences and what sights are you interested in visiting on the inside (please, select from those I propose in the reservation form).

Prague tours are usually organized as half-day tours, by which I mean three or four hour units. In Prague there are three historic quarters, all former medieval cities, each of which deserves at least a three hour tour. These are the Prague Castle (the Lesser Town can also be partly included in this tour), The Old Town (Wenceslas Square in the New Town as the symbol of our modern history can be included in this tour) and the former Jewish Quarter  (for Jewish visitors I recommend to spend at least four hours on this tour). Another solution is to opt for the tour Prague in a Nutshell, which includes the most important and picturesque sights from each of Prague´s quarters (2/3 of the tour by foot, 1/3 by car or boat). This tour lasts about six to seven hours.

Please tell me as well if you are specifically interested in one of the following topics: life behind the Iron Curtain, WW2, modern architecture, spirituality or esotericism, music or perhaps something else. It is possible to highlight any of these during our guided tour or you can choose a specialized tour focused on it.  Your stay can also be conceived and arranged in advance: with your help I will prepare it in detail.

Best wishes. (Joan Welsh; Great Britain) * My wife and I made a a tailor made trip to Central Europe last Year that Prague Arts organized for Us. It was a wonderful experience. Everthing was excellent, more than expected. JANA was was either with Us or in close touch with Us to make sure everthing was going on as planned. (Jaime Benítez and Elvia, México) * On behalf of the Nursing Students of DePaul University, Chicago, we would like to thank-you for our wonderful guided tour through Prague Castle, Strahov Monastery, and the Jewish Quarter. You are so knowledgeable regarding so many areas: art, architecture, history, literature, and more-we learned so much! Likewise, we appreciated your advice on area restaurants and other exhibits, as well. We are most grateful for your expertise and can highly recommend you for other groups desiring a most competent and knowledgeable English-speaking guide.(Linda A. Graf, USA) * We also have just returned from a magical trip to Prague and having the use of Prague Arts Tour. Jana was an exceptional tour guide who made our trip to Prague all that more interesting and informative. After the tour we felt quite at home and we were able to explore the city with a firm understanding of the history of the city that we received from Jana. Prague Arts Tour and Jana are spot on. Thanks again Jana. (Margo and Guy from Canada) * Last September we toured the main cities of Central Europe with a bilingual group from Canada. During two weeks, Jana guided us through the different cities and buildings sharing with us her vast knowledge of art, history and daily life in her part of the world. We found her to be very professional at all times and eager to make sure everyone questions and worries were answered. She was flexible to the demands of the group and always tried to please everyone. She communicated clearly the daily activities in both languages and made us feel safe at all times. Jana's greatest asset is her love for her job and as a result she paints for you a picture of the beauty, opulence and the grandeur of these imperial cities. Her passion and professionalism made it all worthwhile. Thank you Jana. (Lise and Frank Loiocano; Canada)
