    go for/on a visit/trip/journey/walk

    I went on a visit to Prague.
    I went for a visit to Prague.

    I went on a trip to Prague.
    I went for a trip to Prague.

    I went on a journey to Prague.
    I went for a journey to Prague.

    I went on a walk.
    I went for a walk.

    Can I use these two prepositions (on and for) in all these examples without difference in meaning?

    More usual:

    I went to Prague.
    I visited Prague.
    I took a trip to Prague.

    "I went for a walk" is fine.

    Re: go for/on a visit/trip/journey/walk

    Does that mean that my other sentences are not fine?

    I know that if I ever go to Prague, I can inform someone about that in a simpler way. (Do I need a comma after Prague in this sentence?)
    I just wanted to check if my usage of the prepositions is correct.

    Re: go for/on a visit/trip/journey/walk

    Thanks for the answer.
    I knew that "go for a walk" was fine, but from what I saw on this site, I thought that maybe "go on a walk" could be used with the same meaning. That's why I wanted to check.

    And can I use 2 commas: I know that, if I ever go to Prague, I can inform someone about that in a simpler way?

    I would cut out the first comma. I don't think it is necessary.
