What You Can Expect

Small-Group Prague City Walking Tour Including Vltava River Cruise and Lunch

Check the time at Prague's Astronomical Clock!

Meet your guide in central Prague, and then set off on a stroll to Wenceslas Square – one of the most famous historical squares in Europe. Hear of pivotal moments in Czech history that took place here, as your guide explains key events like the Prague Spring of 1968 and the following Velvet Revolution.

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.

Niki met us infront of the Municipal house, turned out my wife and I were the only people on the tour that day so we had Niki all to ourselves all day. His enthusiasm and knowledge of the city and its history is fantastic and kept us informed as we walked around beautiful Praque. The weather was amazing and after seeing most of the sights in one day we fely Niki was a friend rather than a tour guide.
Highly recommend you do this tour.

We only had a day to spend in Prague and this was a great way to see the sights and learn about the history of the city. Our guide was fantastic and we enjoyed asking her about the culture of the city and what life was like during the Soviet regime. A great tour and a way to learn about the history of this beautiful city.

Niki our guide was amazing! He was patient and passionate about the information he delivered. He also gave us lots of extra tips for attractions and restaurants, which is over and beyond any guides we've encountered from this trip.

Great tour! Our guide, Teresa, was very knowledgeable and flexible. She wanted us to have a great time and made sure that we saw everything that we wanted! This was my first tour and now I think that whenever I travel to a new city, I will be taking tours! Great experience!

I started my holiday in Prague with this walk as an introduction to an area where the New Town is 800 years old. Wear comfortable shoes to combat the cobblestone streets and walks. Enjoy the architecture, the food and the people. Friendly and fun time in a country where bottled water is more expensive than a bottle of beer.

We booked the Small Group City Walking Tour of Prague with Tereza of Urban Adventures. There were 7 in the group which was ideal. The tour was well structured with 2 hours walking around the Old City, followed by a boat ride, then a walk across Charles Bridge, a great lunch and beer, then finishing with a tour of Prague Castle and Cathedral, altogether 6 hours, which seemed to go very quickly. Tereza was extremely friendly and had a great sense of humour. She got to know each of us personally and had a real sense of pride in sharing her city. She gave us various options of what we wanted to do which also was great. Overall a great tour experience and thank you Tereza once again for making it so enjoyable. Would highly recommend.

The tour was amazing! We had 6 people, so it was a very customized and personal experience. The tour guide was incredibly knowledgable and friendly. Before the tour I knew nothing of Prague, and after the tour I understood much of Prague's history. I also am now able to comfortably navigate around!
