We enjoyed the tour by bus, riverboat and walking. It was a nice combination and not too strenuous. Our tour guide was great. Visit to the Prague Castle was nice, and we saw everything we needed to see in the time allotted. Our guide gave us a nice history of the Old Town and Jewish Quarter. This tour is highly recommended.

A terrific overview on the bus tour with Ladislav Stoupa. He told us he was a retired teacher - who speaks I believe seven languages. He gave us a huge amount of information as we drove through the city - pointing out points of interest and explaining the history. We were given a bit of time to walk the grounds at the Prague Castle - before getting a nice break on a river boat that took us under the St. Charles Bridge. We were only in the city for a few days so it gave us a better sense of Prague in a short period of time.

Our guide was Vojta and he was very friendly, entertaining and informative. We got a good feel of Prague on the 3.5 hour tour and saw the entire city, including the Castle and the Vlatva River cruise. Vojta had great energy and he was funny which kept us engaged. I highly recommend this tour!

This tour was a wonderful way to start off our time in Prague. It gave us a great overview of the area and history of this beautiful city. We traveled by coach, walked and cruised for an hour on the Vltava River so terrific variety. We went to the castle and saw St Vitus Cathedral which was amazing. This is a place you would want to return for more time since our time was limited -just 3 1/2 hr overview tour. Our guide, Vojta, was so knowledgeable and provided us with great history of the sites we toured. The Jewish Neighborhood was very interesting as well as Old Town. Loved this tour and Prague!

Great trip around Prague with our guide Zuzanne, who deftly handled English, French, Spanish and Czech along with the odd bit of humour. Saw all around the Castle, took a great river trip, and then a short walk to the Jewish Quarter. They even picked us up from our hotel. Recommended.

Picked up from the hotel. We had an interesting tour of the city before going to the Castle. There is quite of bit of walking around the castle. The bus then took us to the boat for an hours cruise, where we were able to have optional refreshments. From the boat we walked around the Jewish Quarter and our tour ended in Old Town Square. We felt able to contune walking around the city on our own to see the areas inaccesible by bus.

I was lucky enough to have Diana as my tour guide, an adorable Spanish lady with such a detailed, extensive knowledge of the history of Prague, its buildings, its people, its fabulous legends, and surprising facts. I highly recommend this tour. It's a 3.5-hour tour that, in a way, felt like 30 minutes. The bus part is entertaining and informational, the walking part is a delight, and the ferry ride is amazing. Super dynamic, agile, and interesting tour!
