A beautiful castle an even more beautiful church. Worthwhile to go on the tour that you can see everything inside. I just felt very claustrophobic because of soooo many people!! No preferential lines for people who have booked tours, you queue just like everybody else. Maybe they should consider early entry for groups or something like that? Because of so many people there was very little time to take photos or appreciate what you see. It felt like we were rushed through to make way for more people. I would like to do this tour again at a time when there are fewer people in the church

An informative tour of the castle in Prague. Would definitely recommend this tour as opposed to going on your own.

Wonderful thorough tour! The castle complex is so large and our guide kept us on point, and the coffee break allowed us to ask more questions! Highly recommended!

The castle grounds are so large it would be really hard to take it all in without a tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her subject which made it that much more interesting. The tour was a lot of walking, often up hill, and usually on uneven cobblestones. One of the members of our group had her elderly mother with her, and it became clear that the walking was really challenging. For me, the walking was great and the view of the city from the top of the hill was spectacular! I highly recommend this tour!

Excellent tour guide who went out of her way to explain the detailed history of Prague. She kept the tour lively and was able to keep the attention of children to adults. At the end of the tour she went out of her way to direct us to another historical site we wanted to visit that was not on the tour. Our tour was bi-lingual English and Spanish.

It was a great tour, very informative, we only had 6 people in the group and it was great! The guide was very nice and accommodating, she was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions including the ones outside of the tour content. I would say that visit the castle without the guide wouldnt be as interesting and informative.
Some things you should know: this tour is really long and you have to stand or walk the entire time, so be prepared for that, also many city tours stop at the castle and give some basic information about it so if you dont have time you may skip the castle tour, but if you can do it, I highly recommend it.
