What You Can Expect

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

Check the time at Prague's Astronomical Clock!

Begin your 6-hour tour in central Prague. Greet your friendly guide and stroll to Wenceslas Square – one of Europe’s most famous public spaces. Hear how this bustling avenue has presided over key moments in Czech history, including the protests of the 1968 Prague Spring and 1989 Velvet Revolution.


Explore the colorful stalls at the Havelska Market and trace the narrow, cobbled passages of the Old Town, passing graceful Gothic, Renaissance and baroque buildings. Spill out into Old Town Square and snap pictures of the Astronomical Clock, the world’s oldest, still functional astronomical clock.


Having admired Old Town Square, follow your guide into the Jewish Quarter as you learn about Prague’s rich Jewish history. The city was one of a handful in Europe to keep its synagogues during World War II, and several still stand resplendent along the elegant streets.

Break for lunch at a traditional Old Town restaurant. Refuel with hearty Czech dishes such as comforting beef goulash or fried cheese, and wash down your food with drinks at your own expense.

Afterward, head to the Vltava River and board a replica 19th-century sailboat for a sightseeing cruise. Record the spires and towers of the Old Town skyline on camera, admire Prague Castle and other sights, and sail beneath the statue-lined Charles Bridge. Sip on a tangy Czech beer, soda or hot drink as you watch the landmarks slip by.

Next, ride a public tram up the hill to Prague Castle, the world’s largest ancient castle complex. Packed with palaces, churches and squares, the UNESCO-listed castle takes a day to explore fully, so your tour concentrates on its showpiece — St Vitus Cathedral. Marvel at the soaring Gothic church inside and out, and hear how it served as the coronation site for Czech monarchs until 1836. 

Your tour ends here, but you’re free to continue exploring inside the cathedral independently if you wish.

Our tour guide was wonderful. This was a very informative and relaxing tour. We had a small group of three and lunch at the restaurant was fabulous. I can recommend the 6 hour walking and boat tour to get a great introduction to Prague.

I signed up for the small group tour, but nobody else signed up that day so I had a private tour with an excellent guide, Niki. I was so glad that Viator didn't cancel my tour - I've had experiences where when not enough people sign up a tour or class is cancelled, so I was very glad that I was still able to go on the tour. Niki was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of interesting Prague history. The boat ride was a nice way to relax and enjoy the views after a morning of walking, and the lunch was delicious! I'm ordering Pilsner Urquell anytime I see it here in the states. The castle and St. Vitas cathedral were really beautiful and impressive and the views were breathtaking, despite it being overcast and rainy. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour! Thank you for making my solo trip to Prague so enjoyable!

We had a fantastic day with our excellent guide. Pete has a huge passion and enthusiasm for his city, along with a great deal of knowledge that really gave us a much deeper understanding than merely viewing the sights. We were delighted with all the quirky and different aspects of Prague that he showed us - the many passages and lane ways, the sculpture, the architecture. He quickly assessed our interests and was able to tailor the day to included these aspects. The river cruise was a delight - in small, traditional boats that we would have been most unlikely to discover ourselves. We would highly recommend this tour.

It turned out that our small group was just the wife and I! Our tour guide, Vasek, was young but very knowledgeable and polite. I had no difficulty understanding his English. And he never tired of all the questions I got to ask since we had his undivided attention. His pick for the inclusive lunch location was great. Do bring your walking shoes, because you will cover a lot of ground in a beautiful city. Enjoy!
