I would not recommend this tour if you want to see Prague, it was very boring! You spend literally all the tour on a bus and walking is only around castle area. The guide wasnt very pleasent either.
Unfortunately this is the worst Viator tour I had ever taken, the others were all great. This tour is not good value for money, it is like a on the bus sightseeing tour except for a stop at the Prague castle. Our group was combined with the French group even though it was suppose to be an English speaking tour group and it gets very confusing and annoying.
This tour helps you become familiar with the city, but the tour of the castle only touches on the highlights. We toured the castle on our own later and took the audio tour. The guide though was very informative. It would have been better if she were only touring in English and not both English & German.
Prague castle is a must to see. The guide was too good, nice and owns a wide knowledge.
This was super - Our guide was most informative and had a great sense of humour. She knew the key spots to stand for photo opportunities and was just terrific - The vantage point for photos for changing of the guards at the castle caugh us all by surprise. I stil laugh when I think of it. You could nearly touch them. This is a must if you are in Prague. Great value and a great start to your trip.
Our tour guide was informative and has lived in Prague for most of her life, so she had a lot of small historical facts about Prague, which was very cool! I would have liked to have known about the Castle details etc. She gave very overall info every time. We had enough time to look around as well.
The day of the castle tour was the one day of the year it was closed. Our tour guide, however, filled the time with interesting information and areas that were open at the castle. He was an outstanding tour guide. I would rate this higher, but since I didn't see the inside of the castle I can't correctly evaluate the tour.

Doing what: Prague in One Day Sightseeing Tour
Nice way to see some sights. However the time spent at the castle felt too long. In addition, the "English speaking tour guide" also gave the commentary in French, which made the tour seem too long.
A n excellent tour! We saw the highlights of Prague, the castle, the cathedral, the old town square with its clock, the Jewish quarter, all very good, and advice for when you went back to look closer in person later. I recommend this tour to anybody, not too much walking either!

Doing what: Historic Prague Walking Tour including King's Route and Charles Bridge
A great morning walk and overview of all the highlights of Prague. Our guide easily handled the tour, rotating between English, German, Spanish and the occasional Czech when speaking to locals. Impressive. We hit all the main sights. Tour ended at Castle Hill to make your own walk up the hill to explore. Definitely recommend.
This was a good introduction to Prague. Started off with a bus tour. The walking part was a tour of Prague Castle, and then there was a bus ride back to the Old Town covering the Jewish ghetto on the way. It was a good introduction, so next time I am going to go for more detailed trips.
It was OK. I think we could have done just as well on our own using the castle's audio trip guides. Our guide was well informed and pleasant.

Doing what: Prague Castle Walking Tour
The guide was informative without being overly intrusive. The castle is extensive and one could spend a full day - but this tour provides the important highlights.
The city itself is magical! The tour was wonderful and the guide was excellent. The castle is amazing. Definitely something to get your Prague trip started.
Prague Castle is not only a monumental tourist spot but is also residence of the reigning governor. It was a pleasant walk and we enjoyed learning about the various aspects of Czech history and culture.
