My husband and I really enjoyed this tour. Sofia our tour guide was so informative, giving us all the history of the landmarks along the way. It is a lot of walking but well worth it as you get to see so much of the city. Even though it was New Year's Eve Sofia still managed to organise a lovely Czech lunch for us at a local restaurant in the Old Town. I would like to thank Sofia for making it a memorable day out. Would definitely recommend this trip.

A great way to visit special places in Prague. Two routes that can be used alternately. Presentation of attractions during the ride also in Polish...

Great tour of Prague and the history. We just missed the clock at noon. That should be pointed out so the "right" tour time can be booked.

It's a great way to see the historic center as a whole. You can get off and on with a single ticket
