Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
This tour is a must-do experience for first-time visitors to Prague! You'll see quirky attractions, off-the-beaten-track sites and – in a group of just 12 people – you'll have the guide's full attention!
What You Can Expect
Wander to Havelska Market to browse the stalls selling colorful knick-knacks, and then take an amble around the alleyways of the Old Town, admiring the Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture that abounds. Stop at Old Town Square and pose for photos under the Astronomical Clock – the oldest one of its kind in the world.
As you stroll from the Old Town to the Jewish quarter, learn about the city’s fascinating Jewish history. The city was one of the few European cities to keep its synagogues during World War II, and several of its most beautiful examples are seen as you stroll through the neighborhood.
Stop at a traditional restaurant in the Old Town for a typical Czech meal (perhaps a warming beef goulash with bread dumplings or fried cheese), and after relaxing over lunch head to the riverside and hop aboard a replica of a 19th-century sailboat for your cruise down the Vltava River. As you glide underneath Charles Bridge, have your camera ready to capture sights of the Old Town and the streets of the Little Quarter – an area full of pretty canals. Relax with a refreshing Czech beer, lemonade or hot drink on board, and then hop off your boat to continue your tour by foot.
Then, jump aboard a local tram and ride up the hill to Prague Castle – the city’s Gothic showpiece. To explore the UNESCO-listed castle complex would take at least an entire day – if not longer – so head inside and visit one of its highlights, the magnificent St Vitus Cathedral. Your tour finishes here, but you can stay inside the cathedral for longer if you wish.
My wife and I booked this tour looking for the details and historical background of Prague. When we arrived, Theresa was waiting for us and to our surprise we were the only ones booking for that day, so we had Theresa all to ourselves. She could not have been better as a guide and I highly recommend her. She was friendly, enthusiastic and very open to our needs and questions. She gave us lots of tips, general information, and a full historical and architectural background of the city. Since our group was only the two of us and where ahead of the planned schedule, she showed us much more of the city compared to the original plan and even stayed longer than the scheduled finish time of the tour. Theresa is very knowledgeable and gave us objective information for you to make your own opinion on things. She will even make you questions after a short explanation to see if you are paying attention and following, which we found very pleasant and insightful. Theresa by far has been our best tour guide and we highly recommend her as well as the tour.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide in Theresa, who was very knowledgeable and informative. I would suggest the tour is amended to scrap the set lunch ( a rather ordinary single course with no choice) and let visitors pay and choose for what they want. I would also scrap the boat trip which adds nothing to Theresa's commentary and uses up time.
If you want some fun and excitement at the end of the tour, ask Theresa why they don't clean the St Vitus Cathedral.
