Join the YouTube team Real Prague Guides aka 100 Spires City Tours for a free tour you will never forget (unless you drink too much beer after the tour🍻). We are a team of certified local tour guides who know how to make Prague's history more exciting than a rollercoaster ride at an amusement park. (Yes you heard it right! Fun and educational!) Most of us grew up in this city and know it like a back of our hand. So you definitely won’t get lost with us! Unlike other foreign-owned free tours in Prague, where guides have to pay high pay-ins just so their bosses can have a good time, we are friends and partners who share our finances to cover the costs of running the free tour in Prague. Finally: all of our tours are free tours, we won’t be selling you anything on the way 😎! So come and join us and let’s have fun together exploring Prague!

The tour with Vàclav was a great introduction to the city of Prague. He was friendly, funny and very informative. We visited many sites throughout the city and the tour never felt rushed. We would highly recommend this tour to anyone who visits the city, so much so that we've bookee more tours with these guys throughout our time in Prague!
