What You Can Expect
As you step onto the other side of the river, you’ll be in Malá Strana. Follow your guide to several area sights, including Our Lady Under the Chain, a church founded by the Templars while they were making their way to the Holy Land; Kampa Park, where you’ll see replicas of the famous baby sculptures created by native artist David Cerný; Kampa Square, where scenes from the movie Mission: Impossible were shot; and the Franz Kafka Museum, outside of which you’ll see another interesting creation by Cerný.
Next, walk to the tucked-away Vojan Gardens, not as well known as the Wallenstein Gardens, which you’ll visit next, but loved by locals. At the Wallenstein Gardens (part of Wallenstein Palace, which dates back to the early 17th century and is now home to the Czech senate), admire the rows of trimmed hedges and Baroque architecture, and then begin your walk up the hill to Prague Castle.
The incline may leave you a little out of breath, but you’ll be rewarded by the views of Prague that stretch before you. Prague Castle dates back to the year 880, is considered the largest ancient castle in the world and is made up of many architectural styles, including Gothic, Baroque and Romanesque. Follow your guide through the Black Tower gate and enter the castle complex, making your way to the Golden Lane, a charming row of small homes from the 16th century that have housed many groups over the years, including sharpshooters, goldsmiths, artists and writers like Kafka.
Then visit the Old Royal Palace, the oldest part of the castle complex, before heading to your last stop, St Vitus Cathedral. The Gothic church took nearly 600 years to complete and is home to the tombs of Bohemian kings and Holy Roman Emperors.
When you’ve finished at the castle, follow your guide back down to the river’s edge, where your tour ends by the Manes Bridge.
The small group made this tour so much more enjoyable than large group tours. Love these private tours! Hope Viator brings more of these into their menu. Our guide was great. He picked us up right at our hotel and he had a wealth of information about the city and all the points we visited. At the end of the day,he walked us all the way back into town, giving us more info on the city and then directed us to our meeting point for our Beer and Tapas tour that evening.
Young and enthusiastic. Excellent content of information. Taught us how to use the metro and tram and listened to our preferences.
Martina was fantastic! So informative and fun!!!
Excellent guide even though our tour was in the pouring rain!
We especially enjoyed that the tour was private and that we could talk to our guide about the city and the people, but had taken the Prague in One Day Sightseeing Tour the day before and there was a bit of overlap. I wouldn't recommend travelers take both tours.
I found this a bit disappointing I would like to have seen more of the castle and cathedral
