Meet your guide and group of 12 or fewer near the Municipal House in central Prague. Then, set off on your tour, traveling by foot and public tram and metro when necessary.
Take a moment to admire the Municipal House, one of Europe’s most beautiful art nouveau buildings, and then wind through handsome streets to Wenceslas Square, the scene of many of Prague’s watershed historical moments.
After seeing the monuments marking events such as the 1968 Prague Spring and 1989 Velvet Revolution, continue to Prague’s Old Town, where the cobbled streets are flanked by medieval houses and churches.
View the world-famous Astronomical Clock and follow hidden lanes to the Charles Bridge, the city’s statue-topped 14th-century bridge across the River Vltava.
Here, board a 19th-century-style sailboat for a scenic 45-minute river cruise. View Prague Castle and other sights from the water, and enjoy onboard refreshments such as a small beer, coffee, tea, lemonade or water, paired with an ice cream or cake.
Back ashore, cross the Charles Bridge and walk to Prague’s Lesser Quarter, where baroque houses and squares sit beneath Prague Castle. Enjoy a traditional lunch at a restaurant here before heading into the UNESCO-listed fortress-palace, the world’s largest castle complex.
Explore the courtyards to see the palaces and churches, and admire the interior of the Gothic St. Vitus Cathedral, where many Czech monarchs were crowned.
Following a short break at your hotel or relaxing at a café with your guide, immerse yourself in one of Prague’s most-loved institutions: its pubs. Travel out of the city center, and visit four taverns favored by locals. Absorb the non-touristy atmosphere and enjoy five different Czech beers and tasty tapas-style snacks as you hop between the four watering holes.
Your tour finishes when your guide says goodbye back at Wenceslas Square.
