+Customized trailers to promote the event, free of charge for private groups+
"Step back into time and virtually experience the empty streets of Prague during the Black Death. Through video, we'll follow the footsteps of Dr. Alexander Schamsky, an unknown Czech hero who fought the plague in 1713. From the “PPE” of the time to the deserted landmarks of the city, you’ll immerse yourself in the forgotten history of the pneumonic and bubonic plagues. Our recorded video has no audio as we comment everything live we see. The movie was shot with a professional camera during times of quarantine and shows the abandoned old town.
One of us Plague Doctors will take you on the journey to visit the famous Charles Bridge, walk around the Old Town Square, and go into the Jewish Quarter, discovering hidden gems in the dark streets. We´ll stop by the old St. Francis hospital and conclude the tour at the convent of St. Agnes. So, not only will you traverse time, but you’ll also get the sense of travel—all from the comfort of your home."

Christmas edition:
We´ll be upgrading our event with the beautiful Christmas flair of Prague´s old town which is top ranked in Europe.

Thomas's presentation was both fun and informative. The virtual walk through Prague, together with the maps, gave us a wonderful taste of the city. We really appreciated the interactive questions and Thomas' openness to having a conversation with us, even as he took us through his thoughtfully designed presentation.

I booked this for my work team and we had a fabulous time! We are fully remote and spread all around North America, and it was a great way for us to connect with each other and also learn something new together! This was our first online Airbnb experience as a group and it was the perfect one to get people excited about more. Thomas was a fabulous host and very knowledgable. I highly recommend this for individuals, groups, and work events!

We took the Plague Doctor tour for a virtual company team bonding tour, and it was really thoughtfully planned. Really enjoyed the little trailer prior to the experience starting, and all the questions David answered for us!

I learned so much more about this interesting topic and the beautiful city of Prague. Our narrator Martin did a fantastic job and I would love to take the same tour again soon with some of my family in Germany!! Great Job, really enjoyed it. Thanks for offering.
