As an enthusiastic tour guide, as well as a tireless globe-trotter myself, I established a platform where curious and cultivated visitors to Prague could hire a tour guide of extraordinary quality. That’s how it all began years ago. Today, our portfolio is considerably broader – look around and perhaps we may soon meet in Prague…
I wish you a pleasant and enriching stay.... Jana Preti

An advantage of our web presentation is that it quickly gives you an idea about the components from which you may choose to compose your tour… that’s why we call them Mosaic Tours…
What is a Mosaic Tour? The description of each tour is its basic version. We recommend that you choose guided interior tours of various monuments right here on the website. In essence, you will put together a tailor-made tour according to what specifically interests you in the given selection. You submit a simple form and we will contact you to finalize all the details.
The length of your tour will change according to your selection of what’s most interesting to you and we always discuss this with you. The variable length of tours also changes the price depending on actual hours spent together. See the hourly rates here.
In addition to my basic walking tour around Prague, my website also enables you to choose sights to visit for a guided interior tour. This way we can put together a tailored mosaic of your visit, specifically designed for you. Once you determine the time frame, we will select the ‘best of’ from the given route.
The Prague tour lengths are variable, which is why we charge according to hourly rates.
Complete flexibility – feel free to begin early to avoid crowds, change your route based on the current circumstances, or change the length of your tour based on weather or other factors...
In the case of trips outside Prague, the cost of transportation represents a significant segment of the price. You can affect the overall price depending on which mode of transportation you choose (by train, a car with a guide-driver, minivan with a driver, or luxury car with a driver).
The descriptions of tours and trips featured on this website are the result of more than twenty years of personal 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.
We donate 2% from each guided tour to verified charity projects.

BASIC PRAGUE TOURS WITH A PRIVATE GUIDE
The basic tours of historic Prague are organized into 3-4 hour blocks dedicated to those historic quarters that deserve an overall tour.
Basic tours include these four quarters: Prague Castle and Malá Strana on the left Vltava river bank and Old Town with its Jewish Quarter on the right bank. This offers two entire days of half-day tours that can be combined in many variations…
If, for whatever reason, you wish to hire a private guide for shorter period, it’s important to think through your selection.
Here are some tips:
If you simply want to get familiar with the town, I personally think you’d benefit most from a private guided tour discovering the Prague Castle quarter and touring the former Jewish ghetto. Walking through these quarters on your own, many interesting and important things will remain hidden from you. Prague Castle serves as an excellent introduction to the discovery of Prague’s thousand-year history, including its unique works of art. The old Jewish ghetto is of general interest, not only for history buffs, but providing insight into Jewish culture as such. The exceptional backdrop of the former Jewish quarter and its rich museum collections offer a unique opportunity for such exploration.
In my view, Old Town is a bit more suitable for individual discovery, because it doesn’t have a unifying story. Malá Strana is ideal for individual romantic walks. Again, even here, it’s true that of course you will learn much more with a private guide and save time. But if your hotel is located in the Old Town or Malá Strana, you can certainly learn more about these quarters with a private guide.
If you only have one day to spend in Prague, I recommend the Prague in a Nutshell tour. It covers all the most important sightseeing and key locations in town and, as a bonus you can relax on a river cruise or in a car with a private driver, as we show you the important sights of the wider city center.
I recommend enriching the basic tour with one of the specialized tours. If you are an art aficionado, you can order a guided tours of essential Prague art collections. I believe our selection is second to none in this area.
Or simply – write me! Please let me know; a) what do you generally expect from your tour b) if there are any specific Prague sights you’d like to see/visit interiors and c) how much time you’d like to spend with your private guide. I will be happy to create a tailored tour just for you.
