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.

This tour is a great way to explore and learn about the city! Our tour guide Aneta was wonderful as she was very friendly and knowledgeable about the city and its history. My husband is very interested in history and Aneta was able to answer all of his questions! The included boat tour is a fantastic way to see both sides of the city from the river and learn more about the history of the city and its buildings. We had a great time on this tour and would definitely recommend it!

Quick light snacks on boat ride along with a lovely view , audio guide and the walking tour - made it worthwhile and an afternoon well spent . Thomas's parting tips on thongs to do on our own turned out to be great !! Overall , a good show.
