The tour will finish near the Charles Bridge.

Meet your guide in central Prague, and set off by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, hear an introduction to Prague’s UNESCO-listed castle, the world’s largest, as a prelude to your tour.

Hop out at the hilltop 12th-century Strahov Monastery, one of the Czech Republic’s oldest monasteries, and hear about its history and famous brewery, a producer of some of the country’s best beers.

Then, absorb the panoramas over Prague from a viewpoint before descending by foot to the nearby Castle District (Hradčany). See the landmarks of this charming area, including the Loreta pilgrimage complex, Cernin Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace, and then head inside Prague Castle, a vast complex of palaces, churches and other treasures.

Walk through the courtyards as your guide details their history, and see the architectural highlights, including the Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and St. Vitus Cathedral, arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful churches.

Admire this Gothic masterpiece inside and out, and view the postcard-pretty 15th-century cottages along Golden Lane, once homes to castle artisans and soldiers.

Your tour then finishes in the Mala Strana district. Alternatively, feel free to continue with your guide to the Charles Bridge and graffiti-coated John Lennon Wall, a key protest site in Soviet times.

I had booked for the castle tour, and I had Milada as my tour guide. I just wanted to make it known how much of an excellent guide she was. I was the only person on the tour, which made it so much better and felt like a personal VIP tour. Milada was so enthusiastic and very informative and able to answer all questions I had. She was very helpful in giving me tips of other places I’d like to and HAVE to see. And gave me a good insight into the history and culture of the Czech Republic. Very grateful to have had her as a tour guide.

I booked this tour on line and everything went according to plan. Our guide was amazing I think his name was Nicholas - or the Czech equivalent of that name. He came equipped with a microphone which helped us to hear him. He was very informative, knowledgeable and amusing. For the price I paid for the tour, I felt I got great value for money. As promised, we were driven by minivan close to the castle which took the hard work out of the walk up there. Nick had an iPad and showed us lots of photos and short videos to explain or demonstrate his information. He told us lots of amusing stories both about the past and the present and overall, was a truly outstanding guide. The only reason I didn't give the trip five stars was because the tour stopped at the beginning of the Charles Bridge on the Castle side and I would have loved to have heard stories about the bridge from Nick. That's me being greedy because he definitely gave us his all during his time with us.
