Why Travellers Choose This Tour

This goes further than many similar tours: with time inside Prague Castle and a full restaurant lunch.
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.

The meeting point was only a 15 mins walk from our hotel which was great but I would suggest finding this out and printing a map. It was very cold as it had been snowing during the night but with all the breaks we had it didn't ruin the tour at all. Our tour guide was Sasa and he was brilliant, very friendly and informative with a good sense of humour. There were only 6 of us on the tour, 8 including Sasa and another member but I can't remember her name (sorry) so it was a lovely small group, it was like hanging out with your mates as we all got along. There is a lot of walking involved but with all the stops and breaks it didn't feel like you was walking for miles on end even though we did walk approx 11km. We had the chance for a hot drink and pastry, then another break on the boat trip, then another break for lunch so we could warm up in between which was lovely. Me and my partner had the beef goulash at lunch and it was beautiful so would highly recommend this dish and the restaurant we went to was a traditional Czech place with great beer! The tour covered all the places we wanted to visit, including Old Town/Xmas market, Jewish Quarter, Charles Bridge, John Lennon wall and Prague Castle. It also helped us with our bearings on getting around Prague too as it is such a large city. We had a brilliant day out and we would highly recommend anyone doing this tour as we learnt a lot about the history of Prague and some of the old legends too!

This was a great tour. So glad I booked it. My tour guide was George and he was awesome. We had a nice size group and saw everything we were supposed to. The tour included a stop for coffee (your expense) and lunch and then on up to the castle. A few of us hung out after the tour and walked up and down the bridge to look at all the neat things for sale. I highly recommend this tour.

This was a great introduction to the city of Prague. I’m older and could keep up with all the walking, since river cruise and lunch mixed into schedule. Or guide Saša Ivša was really great!

We had a passionate young guide who was a history buff. Tour took longer than the 6 hours by about an hour but that was because there were lots of questions.

This tour was the highlight of our time in Prague. Jiri was absolutely excellent and has an amazing passion for his homeland that comes out in his explanations. We highly recommend the tour and please ask for Jiri and Prague will come alive for you

My issue with this tour was that it was so slow that we ended up giving the tour away. While I understand that you have to walk to the lowest common denominator it is unreasonable to be constantly held to ransom by people who wander off to shops and take photos at a snails pace. It is the guides responsibility to at the very least keep the tour going at a reasonable pace otherwise you miss out on seeing what has been advertised.

Mark was knowledgeable and funny and the tour itself covered a lot of historical parts of Prague. Definitely a great tour if you don't have a lot of time in Prague and want to see the highlights.
