I honestly didn’t have detailed ideas about my trip to Prague. I just roughly thought of an itinerary on the top of my head and just went with it. I thought it was a good idea to see the Old Town on my first day. Before going on this trip, I signed up for a free walking tour through Sandeman’s website: http://www.newpraguetours.com/ You don’t really need to sign up, you can also just show up but I would rather be safe. :P
The meeting place was in front of the Tourism office near the clock. The guys had red umbrellas. We were a big group so they divided us in 2 groups. This was our guide – Declan. He’s originally from Ireland but he moved to Prague. He was really good. He shared plenty of information and was really theatrical.
Halfway through the tour, we went to a bar. You don’t have to order anything and I didn’t but some people did. You can take bathroom breaks. We were there for around 30 minutes before proceeding with the tour.
We also went through the Jewish Quarters. According to our guide, this is probably the most well preserved Jewish settlement in the world. You might be wondering why Hitler didn’t destroy it. It’s because he wanted this to be a living museum for an “extinct race”. *shudders*
We ended our tour here which is also the meeting place for the Castle tour which I did the following day which is not free. The guides do this free tours and they appreciate it if you would give tips. :)
