A good coverage of Prague. Our guide was good in keeping us all together and not losing us in the crowds at the castle. We got a good position to see the changing of the guard to. Worthwhile.

Doing what: Prague in One Day Sightseeing Tour
Commentary was HOPELESS. The guide was so busy pointing out the "nice" hotel here, and the "nice" restaurant there that when something of actual interest to a tourist came by, he didn't have enough time and would just say "there's a nice castle there".
We had a really great tour guide who shared a wealth of information about the castle area with us. There were only 4 of us in our group, which was excellent for being able to move easily through all parts of the complex and ask questions to the guide. However the tour began with a lot of confusion and it took awhile to get going on the shuttle. Although our tour guide tried to give us some info about Prague in the shuttle on the way to the castle, there was a non-English speaking tour group on our shuttle as well, who were all speaking so loudly we couldn't hear our tour guide over them. Also we didn't exactly go into a castle, we toured all around the castle, went in the church and a bunch of smaller buildings, but most of the buildings are currently gov't buildings so you can't go inside. I still recommend the tour though.
We all enjoyed this tour. We never felt rushed. Prague castle is magnificent.
Tour was a little slow (probably based on the mix of ages) but overall it was a great way to see many of the sights in Prague, especially Prague Castle! Great tour guide who was very knowledgable but she seemed very hesitant and was not very loud. It was essential to stay at the front of the group!
Excellent trip despite the rain. The Guide was superb, gave us a wonderful overview of the city. Will return in the future to see the Castle.
If you only have one day in Prague, this is the tour for you. You get the highlights of the city with a great guide on a very structured schedule. Our guide showed us through the secret passage from the monastery to the castle which was on an even angle and we did not have to negotiate a steep road.
We had a personal tour due to only pelpe boooked, casual and very picturesque, great views from the castle.
The tour was informative but dull and boring. The guide seemed to be more at home speaking italian than english. Also there was no time spend on foot except in the castle grounds. The other important places in Prague were just shown through a small windowed bus. All in all.. not very satisfactory.
Very knowledgeable tour guide, small group - beautiful cathedral and castle. Learnt a lot about the history of the country.
Good tour but it was misleading in the fact that it was mostly a tour of Prague Castle. We enjoyed it but we were expecting to see more the Prague.
this city like prague, it is not good for trvale, very small and packed roads. better off on foot. this trip only got good once left the centre of the city and made way to the castle
We went to the castle, but we really didn't get too much of a history tour. Our guide was very patient with the guests.
Good introduction to old city and castle in 3 1/2 hours tour. Allowed us to revisit most interesting places next day. Smal group of 10, max 16. is advantageous. Recommendable!
good, comprehensive tour. the tour gave a good general background and history of the City, We toured the important sites and got a good walking tour of the Castle area.
