Cycling my way along the Hidden Gems of Prague

Just got back from my umpteenth city trip to Prague. God, I how much I love this city! It is undeniable that Prague, like many other popular destinations, is getting more and more crowded with tourists every year. I decided to join the 3-hour Hidden Gems Prague Bike Tour of Mijn Praag Tours (360 Tours Prague) last weekend to discover new places and see where the locals hang out.

We found the office of Mijn Praag Tours in one of those cute winding streets in the heart of Prague’s Old Town, just 100 meters from the Old Square. The bright smile from the beautiful Zuzanna makes me feel welcome instantly. Since our tour would be partly uphill, she kindly recommends taking a sporty black mountain bike for this tour. Thanks Zuzi!

Sporty vs. gears

Coming from a country that is as flat as a pancake (The Netherlands) basically any hill can take my breath away, especially while riding a bicycle. But I decided to be brave and honestly, I did not regret it for a second. And my 7-months pregnant friend neither!

The tour actually turned out to be very doable for pretty much every sports level. Sure, the gears and breaks come in handy. Cobble stone roads can be pretty tricky, especially after some rain. Luckily we all survived thanks to our guide’s golden tip: do not use the left break and you will be fine!

Cute guide

Our guide Brian kept the tour in perfect balance by making frequent stops to catch breath, take a sip of water, show us another hidden gem, tell a story and take some photos. Brian told us several fascinating historical tales and interesting facts, all with a touch of humor and a big bright smile. Knowledge, humor, enthusiasm and a friendly nature, now that’s a great combo for a tour guide’s personality! And cute too 😉 Brian showed us numerous places I had never been to, despite the fact that I have been in the city for about ten times or so. Well done!

Quickie

The Hidden Gems Prague Bike Tour is perfect if you want to see new, not so touristy things, discover the hidden gems. And if you are on a short visit for example. The great thing about cycling is that, compared to walking for example, you can see more in a short period of time. And especially on a short trip, time is precious; you want to see a lot and spend your time wisely. I am sure this will be helpful to win your next game of Trivial Pursuit haha

“I was in Prague for less than 48 hours but I saw a lot of the city because of the pleasant and informative bike ride with guide Brian. Prague looks and smells so good!”
