Prague, the fairytale city, is alive with amazing architecture, rich history, and an irresistibly unique nightlife. Castles, Communism, beer, and beauty; Prague has shed its not-so-distant oppressive past to re-emerge as a culturally rich wonder and a mainstay of every traveler’s bucket list. Our Private Walking Tours and Exclusive Pub Crawl brings you the magic of Eastern Europe’s most popular and wildest city. Make your mark on Prague at the Lennon Wall, be enchanted by the winding medieval streets, and dance the night away to 80s and 90s favorites at Club Lucerna for your own fairytale. Sunday we'll stop in Munich so you can check out one of Germany's most popular cities. Home to Oktoberfest, we'll see the English Garden, Marienplatz, and of course there's time for a stop at the Hofbrauhaus.
