What you'll do

+++We offer a version for team building and company events up to 100 people+++Private Tours in German and Czech upon request+++
Step back into time and virtually experience the empty streets of Prague during the Black Death and plagues of the 17th and 18th centuries. Through video, we'll follow the footsteps of Dr. Alexander Schamsky, an unknown Czech hero who fought the plague in 1713. From the “personal protective equipment” 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 our 5 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.

Our plague doctor took a grim historical experience and made it a delightful and engaging presentation. With a mix of humor, video and pop quizzes he had us laughing at times and cringing at others. We were thoroughly entertained and didn’t want the experience to end. Thanks for the good time!

Tomas was a great guide - engaged everyone in the group, answered all kinds of wacky questions, and fed us with many quirky facts about Prague. The entire experience was much better than I expected! So fun to do this with family from all over, to learn a few things about the black plague, and to see Prague during COVID!

Our guide David was very knowledgeable and also entertaining! The tour was very well prepared with the movie of a guide walking through the city of Prague which made me feel as if I’m really wandering around the beautiful town. David was such a wonderful storyteller and made me feel like I’m traveling in the world of old novel, and at the same time he made the tour very interactive talking to each one of us and answering all the questions! I was not able to turn on the camera & mic apart from the first bit of the tour, but David was very welcoming and always cared about me even though he couldn’t see me! Thank you for such a wonderful experience and I’d definitely recommend this lovely tour!

I don’t write reviews often, so when I do, trust me, it’s meaningful. David was fantastic and gave us a fun, educational tour and memorable experience! We were a family of 4 dialed in from 3 different locations and David really engaged and personalized to us.

This is a fantastic way to experience Prague without being able to travel there. The host was knowledgeable and kept it entertaining the entire time! Well worth the money to experience this!
