What to expect
  • Meet your guide near the Old Town Square in central Prague, where your tour begins. Set out through Prague’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, stopping to admire the city’s striking architecture and historic landmarks. Along the way, take a walk through the magnificent Clementinum complex, with its Baroque churches and impressive Mirror Chapel. Head down to the riverfront, where a ‘Prague Venice’ boat will be waiting for you and hop aboard for a scenic 45-minute sightseeing cruise. Enjoy refreshments (included) as you glide along the river and admire views of Prague’s Old and New towns. You’ll have time to pay a visit to the Charles Bridge Museum and pose for photos on the iconic bridge, before crossing the river to explore the atmospheric Malá Strana (Lesser Town). Pause to take photos of Kampa Island, Lovers Bridge, and the graffiti-covered Lennon Wall, then catch the tram up the hill to Prague Castle. Follow your guide on a walking tour of the vast Prague Castle complex and learn more about the 9th-century fortress as you admire its contrasting architectural styles. Pay a visit to the St. Vitus Cathedral and stroll around the hilltop vineyard, gazing out over Prague city below. Your tour ends at the castle, where you can continue sightseeing independently or make your way back to your hotel.

well worth the money and time
Dec 2019
We were greeted by Peter in the office in Old Town Square and were taken to Charles Bridge to board our 100-year-old replica boat After a hot drink we were off down the Vitava river and had a tour up and down viewing the old buildings with an English explanation. Nice warm wood burner!
On the return, Peter met us again and we walked across the Charles Bridge and descriptions of the statues were told to us We then took a tram up to the Castle/ Cathedral on the top of the hill. After a tour of the Palace grounds and tour around the Cathedral, we took a tram back to our hotel Finished at 5 pm so it was a long tour with a good grounding in Prague history Well worth the money

Orientation Tour
Aug 2019
We did this tour on our first full day in Prague and it certainly gave us a great overview of the place and a chance to work our different places we wanted to go back to or wanted to visit during the rest of our stay. Our guide Tereza was brilliant. We learnt so much about the history and culture. She had so much knowledge to share and went above and beyond. The walking wasnt too difficult as we stopped regularly for photo opportunities or Tereza would give us some of the history Charles Bridge. The canal river boat tour was also very interesting too. The whole experience was super and was certainly worth doing. Big thank you to Tereza for making it very informal within the small, friendly group that we had the pleasure of touring the sites with.

Fun, comfortable, and informative
Aug 2019
Although the starting point is not visible from the main square, detailed directions were provided and it was very easy to find. Our group consisted of only six people, which was very pleasant and everyone was quite friendly. The tour includes a pleasant boat ride and a ride up to Prague Castle on one of the cities many trams. Our tour guide, Tomas, was kind, personable, and well informed. He obviously didn't have a script, but was genuinely knowledgeable about the city and catered to our interests and questions. He showed us beautiful gardens and and breathtaking views of the city. The experience did take longer than the allotted three hours, but we really appreciated Tomas taking the time to show us the landmarks of Prague Castle and teach us about it's history.

Set aside a LOT more time than the 3 hours advertised for this tour
Jul 2019 • Solo
I had one evening free in Prague. I booked this tour which listed its start time at 14:00. It is described as a 3 hour tour. Based on this representation, I booked a different tour to start at 17:30 following this one.

The starting/meeting point for this tour was very difficult to find. It is tucked-back in a tiny side street that my GPS just could not locate. I walked in circles for half an hour trying to find it. They did call me on my cell phone and helped me to find my way which I appreciated and I made it to the starting point only a minute late.

My tour group had 12 people in it including a family with very young children and a stroller. I do not recommend this for families with very small children and strollers. The streets are cobblestone and the boat ride requires negotiating multiple sets of stairs which seemed quite difficult with the stroller. My group also had a couple that "wandered-off" to take more pictures so we ended-having to stop for an extended period of time to wait for our tour guide who went "back" to try to find them.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and pleasant, but the pace of the tour was slower than I would have liked. After 2.5 hours we had not even reached the castle yet and I had another tour booked. I ended-up leaving the tour halfway through so I could make it to my other tour which meant I never saw the castle at all which was disappointing.

If you are on a tight time-schedule, I would not recommend this tour. If, however, you have the time to meander slowly and don't mind your tour taking 4 or 5 hours, then this would be a very nice tour to take.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to write us a review. First of all, we are sorry that you had to leave the tour early due to the length of the tour, we can assure you that it normally takes 3 hours, however, there is plenty of outside factors that we cannot affect. You have mentioned them in your review. We try for our tours to end on time, but sometimes, it is just not possible. We cannot affect the pace of the people on the tour. Kind regards, Trips&Tickets Team

very informative tour. Lots of opportunity to see Prague from the river. The castle is a really good place to visit for the architecture, art and of course the views.
