•  Private guides


Due to the fact, that Katerina (Katka) Svobodova has become to be recommended by many past visitors, in several Rick Steves travel books and on some internet travel forums so much in recent years, she has put together a small team of friends, associates, local licensed private guides to be able to satisfy all demands. That is PRAGUEWALKER.

All of below listed guides are very nice people who really like what they are doing. They have a very good English (and other language) knowledge and a nice way of presentation, experience and enthusiasm. We all do our best to make your visit enjoyable and unforgettable - a meeting with a local guide can enrich your own life and traveling experience. With a private guide you will get to see much more than on group trips, as you are not limited by anyone and anything.

Thank you all so much for your good reviews and recommendations! We appreciate it very much. Thanks to you, PRAGUEWALKER has been created and we know that without you, we could not be here!
