Was first visit to Prague. On researching trips and tours came across this tour. Must say for anyone visiting Prague for first time this Tour is what I would consider essential. The Tour is like a taste of what to do and see in Prague and makes everything so much easier. Pick up at the hotel is an addedd bonus. Staff on tour very helpful and full of information.

I was on a work trip so had limited time for sightseeing in Prague. I found this half day visit extremely interesting and enjoyable, giving a good overview of history and major landmarks in the city. The guide spoke a good standard of English.

We arrived for our River Cruise a day early and booked the Prague Half-Day City Tour Including Vltava River Cruise with Viator. It was a great way to get acquainted with Prague and see some beautiful sites all at the same time. Our guide Renee was very knowledgeable and gave us some great suggestions for local cuisine after the tour. We felt this was a great way to begin our stay in Prague and would highly recommend this experience to others.

Our guide was nothing short of Amazing. It is a great tour, a mix of venues and sights via bus, boat and a small amount of walking. Our guide Jakob was extremely informative and knowledgeable on the tour and delivered non stop value. Highly recommend.

What a wonderful preview of Prague! From the van pick-up at our hotel to the educational tour by our English-speaking tour leader, the day was enjoyable and informative. Each historical spot was so impressive, and the wealth of information attached to each venue was imparted clearly by our tour guide. We truly enjoyed the Prague Castle, St. Vitus' Cathedral, the glimpse of Charles Bridge which we returned to explore further, and the Astronomical Clock. The cruise up and down the Vltava River was the icing on the cake. Loved every minute of it!!!

Great 1/2 day tour to see Prague and find your way around. The river cruise was enjoyable. The only downside was our guide. She failed to give adequate amount of time for pictures, looked bored and at the after the river cruise she failed to wait for the rest of the group who couldn’t cross a major intersection because the light had changed. She almost lost them but didn’t because we had to tell her to stop and wait. This is the first time I have ever experienced that behavior.

This was a great way to see the city. So much to see with the castle tour, the boat tour and then walking through the old city. It was well worth the time and money. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. We've used Viator tours multiple times and always enjoy the tours.

Even through a rain day this tour was the best way to get an overview of the city and what it had to offer. We used to plan the rest of our time in Prague. Great tour guide.

This was a very thorough tour that gives you a very good and quick sense of the beautiful city of Prague and all it has to offer. All the main areas of the city are covered including the Castle, Old Town Square, the Jewish Section and an hour Vltava River Cruise. Definitely worth it and then go back and concentrate on the areas that are of most interest. Perfect for first timers and those on a tight schedule.

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.
