Why Travelers Choose This Tour

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

What a way to explore Prague

What a great tour! It ended up being a private tour which was just our luck as Michaela was just amazing. She knew so much of the history of Prague, and the day went by so fast because she kept it so interesting.

Prague is such a beautiful city with a rich history. I Highly recommend taking this tour early in your visit. Our guide Nikola with Urban Adventures was fantastic. Extremely knowledgeable of the city and its history. Due to Corona pandemic cancellations, we had a private tour, though many places were closed. Nikola gave recommendations of places to visit as well as restaurants and bars. Was very cold and windy so be prepared if you go in March.

Introduction to Prague

My group was made up of six Americans and four Scots and we mixed well. Our Guide was incredibly knowledgeable about the city and the various culture sites we visited. He set a steady pace and took care for the group to stay together. The boat trip was very enjoyable as was the lunch of traditional dishes. Having a lunch break gave the group the opportunity to get to know each other.

I booked an English speaking guide - Sasa was our guide. We were blessed with good weather, our group, because of the current situation with Covid 19, consisted of a further two very pleasant people. Both factors had a positive impact on our experience. However, the real success must be attributed to our guide- Excellent communication skills, knowledge of the area second to none! A great day, enjoyed by all - Thank you!

Michaela is an excellent guide; however was not updated on the hours of operation of St Vitus Cathedral and we missed it , twice! Very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour is comprehensive and gives you a very good idea of Prague, if you’re short of time.

Big 6 hour day walk/tram/boat, great overview of Prague
Christine
, Feb 2020
David was a good guide mixing the facts with some amusing anecdotes. There was a great deal of walking and would not suggest this for anyone who is not fit. A huge amount was fitted into the time span given and it gave a good overlook of Prague and its highlights. There was not much time for photo taking. The meal and venue for the meal was lovely. Tour had a stop over for coffee and pastries (drinks paid for by yourself, pastries complimentary) Lunch (drinks your own cost) Gingerbread pastry and alcoholic or non-alcoholic beverage complimentary on the boat trip. Well worth it.

Recommend this tour. English (American) guide - David from Colorado was highly knowledgable, with good stories and insight. The relatively small numbers (about 8 in our tour) helps in getting around quickly. Relatively expensive, but does include a tram ride, boat tour and lunch which we enjoyed.

A must tour to get to know Prague

I highly recommend this tour. Our guide was Petr and he was excellent. Knowledgeable and friendly, everything you would want in a guide. We only had a party of 6 which was great as much more personable. We got to see many of the sites and Petr explained their relevance without going over the top with too much info that some guides do. We stopped off for a snack (included in the price), a boat ride with a drink (I had the hot wine that was delicious), a tram ride and lunch. We ran over time but Petr just carried on and made sure we were well looked after. He even sent us an e-mail after the tour giving us some hints and tips on things to do. Thanks Petr you made our visit to Prague that extra special.
