Overview

Prague Castle is a must-see during any stay in Prague, and this tour covers it in a convenient three hours. Ride a minivan up to the hilltop UNESCO-listed castle — the world's largest — and walk around its treasures and surrounding Castle District. Stroll through the castle courtyards past palaces and monuments, visit St. Vitus Cathedral and Golden Lane as your guide shares their history, and absorb bird's-eye views down over the city.
  • 3-hour walking tour of Prague Castle and Castle District
  • Stop at the hilltop Strahov Monastery and admire views down over Prague
  • Explore the Castle District to see highlights like the Loreta and Cernin Palace
  • Stroll through Prague Castle's courtyards and visit St. Vitus Cathedral and Golden Lane
  • Air-conditioned minivan transport from central Prague up to Strahov Monastery
  • Small group tour of 10 travelers or fewer
Meet your guide in central Prague, and set off by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, hear an introduction to Prague’s UNESCO-listed castle, the world’s largest, as a prelude to your tour.
Hop out at the hilltop 12th-century Strahov Monastery, one of the Czech Republic’s oldest monasteries, and hear about its history and famous brewery, a producer of some of the country’s best beers.
Then, absorb the panoramas over Prague from a viewpoint before descending by foot to the nearby Castle District (Hradčany). See the landmarks of this charming area, including the Loreta pilgrimage complex, Cernin Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace, and then head inside Prague Castle, a vast complex of palaces, churches and other treasures.
Walk through the courtyards as your guide details their history, and see the architectural highlights, including the Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and St. Vitus Cathedral, arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful churches.
Admire this Gothic masterpiece inside and out, and view the postcard-pretty 15th-century cottages along Golden Lane, once homes to castle artisans and soldiers.
Your tour then finishes in the Mala Strana district. Alternatively, feel free to continue with your guide to the Charles Bridge and graffiti-coated John Lennon Wall, a key protest site in Soviet times.

I booked this tour on line and everything went according to plan. Our guide was amazing I think his name was Nicholas - or the Czech equivalent of that name. He came equipped with a microphone which helped us to hear him. He was very informative, knowledgeable and amusing. For the price I paid for the tour, I felt I got great value for money. As promised, we were driven by minivan close to the castle which took the hard work out of the walk up there. Nick had an iPad and showed us lots of photos and short videos to explain or demonstrate his information. He told us lots of amusing stories both about the past and the present and overall, was a truly outstanding guide. The only reason I didn't give the trip five stars was because the tour stopped at the beginning of the Charles Bridge on the Castle side and I would have loved to have heard stories about the bridge from Nick. That's me being greedy because he definitely gave us his all during his time with us.

V gave a great tour. Very informative and flexible guide. We recommend him highly. It's well worth the money. If we ever go back, we'd sign up for him again.
