Honest Guide (English)

(55 customer reviews)


Every guide book there is about Prague will tell you to visit the Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge. Not this one. This Honest Guide will actually tell you to avoid such things.

Out of stock


We (Honza & Janek) have been making online videos called Honest Guide for more than two years now. Guiding people around our lovely city of Prague. Showing our viewers the hidden gems, local pubs, crazy elevators and much more. Then our friend Eliška came and said “Guys. let’s do a book!”. And we said yes. She took care of the illustrations, Honza took the pictures, and I wrote the text. All this combined together and you have an Honest Guide book.

Map of book shops in Prague with our book. There is a lot of them so if your trip is about to start soon, consider picking the copy up in person just to avoid any troubles with the post service.

Otherwise, the books are being dispatched every Thursday.

Honestly? You have no idea how much we appreciate your support, truly. So thank you so much for that!

  1. Vitas

    One of the best guides ever!

  2. Ross

    Best guide I have read. Real advise for real travellers who want to see and respect the culture at a fair and reasonable price. So much better than the usual guides that regurgitate generic tourist trap stuff.

    Great work. Appreciate what you did. especially you youtube videos about prague exchange scam is amazing.it really rocks. Btw i have found a really useful P2P mobile app for exchanging money with real people instead of cheater exchange offices. Winngie is the name of app that you can meet with other tourists or gift shops or even uber drivers to help you exchanging money. kind of useful. just wanted to share my experience too.

    Even if you don’t use this guidebook as intended, I enjoyed reading it. It is clearly a labor of love created by people brimming with overwhelming excitement of their hometown. Well done!

    I saw some of your videos on YouTube and wanted to buy your guide in English while I was in Prague. After 5 bookshops that only sold the book in the Czech language, I finally found an English version in Knihkupectvi Karolinum, Celetna 18. The search was more than worthwhile. Top guide !!

  7. Marina

    Love your videos. Very helpful to prepare my trip with my son. Hope I will find your English book a when I will be in Prague next time as a present for my husband. Any library address where there is a good chance to get the English version ?

    I would just buy anything Janek and Honza recommend. Honest guide by honest people. I havent bought it yet, Im on it right now! but i have a friend from Brno who showed it to me and I truly believe it´s a must buy.
    We´re from Argentina living in Spain and looking forward to travel to Prague for xmas season. We watch their videos religiously. Kudos to them.

  13. Liudas

    Great book! Very reasonable price and very well made! Great book for those who don’t want to see the same stuff that everyone! I recommend it absolutely! Greetings from Spain

    This book costs roughly $16 USD, and I promise you it is worth every penny. Janek and Honza, I watched your videos and bought this book when I got to Prague and I honestly had a great time. I saw so many places in a short period of time and had plenty of moments where I was by myself, without a huge bulk of tourists, and it was perfect. Thank you guys for creating this. If you’re on the fence about buying it, I promise you that you won’t regret it.

  16. Manuel

    The best honest guide in the world!!!!!

  17. Matt

    I’d live in Moscow, but I really wanted to buy that book, because I like blog “honest guide”, but that book hasn’got electronic version for e-book or phone. Please, create e-version of that book)

  21. Zralý Ondřej

    This book is awesome. I’m from Prague and bought two of those. One as a potential gift abroad and second as my personal get to know my city guide.

  22. Vagelis Liakos

    Hello, hope you are doing well,
    I’m trying to place an order for the book but the price is in Czech crowns.
    Can I change the currency in EUR?

    I never received my book and no one bothers to respond. I have tried contacting via the website linked to the PayPal account that I paid to and via Instagram. No response. I ordered the book on March 26th. 2 months is plenty of time to receive it. Today is May 24th. Such a shame as I was trying to support a small international business. At this point, I just want my money back!

    • Honest Guide

      Hey Catherine! Very sorry to hear about this but we don’t sell the book over Instagram. We’ll do our best to get this sorted, please contact us at the listed here on our website shop@honest.blog Thank you and sorry for any trouble!

    I bought the book in Prague, the English version.
    The content is about restaurants and coffee places and a few historical places.
    I gave it only 2 stars because on every page there is a QR code that should redirect you to a video about the subject in the page. Unfortunately, all the videos are on private so you cannot really see the “entire version” of the place.
    Also, I expected to have some qr for links of the maps. We need to search on the internet for the links.
