What you'll do

+++This is our in-person tour+++
"With the Almighty and the fortunte constellation of the stars Jupiter, Mars and Saturn, we welcome you to Prague, my fellows. May the holy Rochus and Sebastian be on our side today, to let us enter, but also leave the town once we finished our work. Seems you all look fine for now, but I´ll keep an eye on you."
After our success with the Nightwatchman of Prague we invite you now to go back to the times of the Black Death and plague in Prague of the 18th Century. You will explore the city with your personal plague doctor, our forgotten hero A. Schamsky who fought the Plague in 1713. In the original dress of a plague doctor we will take you on a journey through the different centuries for only one purpose: Surviving! A historical walk with shocking details of the pneunomic and bubonic plague. What have we learned from this and when did it all end?
An interactive tour to the hidden gems of the old town. We´ll stop by at the old St. Francis hospital and conclude the tour at the convent of St. Agnes.
Other things to note
The tour is interactive, hence your questions are more than welcome. This is about histiorical facts only, therefore it can appear to be a bit scary...

Tomas was engaging and had great little trinkets and activities for us throughout the tour. Kept my attention and was still fun despite the rain.

A fun and easy walk around Old Town with stories and explanations about the plague and little random facts and tips for visitors. I liked the style with little visual helpers and quizzes to make it engaging. A nice way to start a stay in prague.

Very very cool tour, nice sights, facts and I especially liked the interactive aspects. Tomas, our guide, also provided some helpful tips about being a traveller in Prague today.

The tour is an interesting experience and a special opportunity to see Prague from a totally different perspective. Tomas, our guide, is an excellent storyteller. We had a dazzling tour exploring the dark periods of the plague.
