What You Can Expect
When you reach the other side of the river, you’ll be in Malá Strana (Lesser Town). Walk with your guide to several area sights, including Our Lady Under the Chain, a church founded by the Templars on 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 Mission: Impossible were filmed; and the Franz Kafka Museum, outside of which you’ll see another quirky creation by Cerný.
Next, head to the tucked-away Vojan Gardens, less known than the Wallenstein Gardens, which you’ll visit next, but much-loved by locals. At the Wallenstein Gardens (part of Wallenstein Palace, which dates back to the early 1600s and is now the home of the Czech senate), admire the rows of trimmed hedges and Baroque architecture, and then begin your ascent up to Prague Castle.
The uphill walk 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 from Gothic to Baroque to Romanesque. Follow your guide through the Black Tower gate and enter the castle complex, making your way to the Golden Lane, a cute 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.
We greatly enjoyed our tour despite rainy conditions. Our guide, Michal, was very friendly, engaging and knowledgable. This tour was our highlight of our visit to Prague and we highly recommend Absolute Walking Tours.

Very good. Guide was good. Tourists too many!
Mike is a very good tour guide. Very patient and speaks very clearly.
Mike our guide was wonderful!!!!! Discover Prague Tours is the best!!!!
Very casual and very organized! The guide took us and made our route that was less touristy and I actually felt a bit blended in. He also took time for us to take pictures and have our own pictures taken which was really considerate. My personal favorite was his sneaky way of finding these out of the way photo shots while we were wandering around the area. There was a wink and a slight of hand and body gesture and RIGHT AWAY I saw the good photo scenarios come right out!
I can't rate this tour highly enough. Our guide, Omar, was so knowledgeable and so helpful. He wanted us to enjoy HIS CITY as much as he did.
All in all a first class tour with a first class tour guide.
Paul, our guide, was very knowledgeable and gave us insights into other areas of Prage.
Awful! No guide initially showed up, when someone did show up the itinerary wa wrong. The guide who did show up tried to make up for the chaos but harm was done.
This was not the Viator I have experience in other cities.
