"Adi was so much fun! Without him, I would have missed out on a lot of cool experiences. The tour was the perfect balance of history and activity so there was always never a dull moment." Lexi, Feb 2015
Ahoj from Prague! My name is Adi, and I'm so excited to join WSA this year!

Day 1 - Friday: Prague's Old Town
The adventure officially begins 10am Friday morning when your local guide will pick you up and break down the itinerary. On your first day in town, you'll exploring the old Medieval heart of Prague, the Old Town. On this three hour orientational walking tour, you'll see the Old Town Square, climb the famous Clocktower and take in the massive Wenceslas Square where the Velvet Revolution began to break the Czechs away from Communism. The Old City is jam-packed with striking Baroque, Renaissance and Gothic architecture, making you feel as if you jumped straight into a fairytale novel, and you'll have lunch in a traditional Czech restaurant.
We'll continue into the Jewish Quarter of Prague, to see the Pinkas Synagogue and to peer into the Jewish cemetery where over 200,000 people are buried. That afternoon, you'll enjoy the good weather with paddle boating on the Vlatava. Don’t forget to BYO snacks & beverages! Meet up with the WSA group back at the hostel for an evening of ghost stories, and a night out including Prague’s most unique cellar bars & pubs. In the clubbing mood?

Climb up the hill to the Castle where your guide will break down the history of Europe's longest ancient castle while looking out over the city of Prague. You'll have the chance tol tour the castle where you may just catch the change of the guard.

With beer cheaper than water, Prague is the perfect place for budget travelers on another night out on the town.

I had an absolutely amazing time on my WSA trip to Krakow, Poland. I felt like a got a lot out of my money and it was so nice not to have to worry about anything because WSA takes care of it all. Our guide was absolutely fantastic and was there with us for everything we needed-it was great to have someone around with you who knew the city so well. This is definitely a trip I will never forget. I already want to start planning my next WSA trip. What amazing destination to pick next is the hard part!Alison Wendler, Universsity of Washington ~ National University of Ireland, Galway, Spring 2016
