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.
The tour guide was great. She was knowledgeable and spoke excellent English. It was clear she loved her city. If anything, I was about done out with one more fact and story about Prague by the time we wrapped up late in the afternoon at Prague Castle. You know Monty Python's wafer thin mint skit ...
There were only three of us on the tour that day and it made for a very friendly and easy going day.
The river 'cruise' was nice and gave a chance to relax after several hours walking - unfortunately the early afternoon timing was bad for a sunny day as half of the sites were impossible to see given the blinding light. However, I will not complain about sun in November.
this was a brilliant way to see the highlights of Prague from all different views, walking, boating and a tram ride up to the castle. it was also great to have local insight and side stories about the city that you would never find in a book. the group was indeed small which is much easier to not only hear but ask questions and feel like a friend is showing you the city, rather than being on the peripheral edge of a large group catching snips of information. it is a long tour but you feel like you cover a good majority of the city. definitely recommended if you have limited time to explore on your own.
