Planning Your Prague Visit

Discover Czech Beer

True to its reputation, Czech beer is delicious. A newcomer might be confused by the beer's alcohol content, however. Don't worry, the numbers given to the beers don't indicate their alcohol percentage. They refer to the alcohol degree, which is a much more complicated factor. As a rule of thumb, 10 and 12 degrees, the most common, are equivalent to roughly 4% and 5% respectively. Some beers go all the way up to 19 degrees – that's 8% alcohol!

Try a Czech Hot Dog

Believe it or not, one of Prague's culinary highlights are its hot dogs. Infinitely superior to their American counterparts, these delicious sausages stuffed in French baguettes offer the best cheap lunch in town. Stalls are peppered throughout the city, just take your pick!

What people are saying about Prague

Very knowledgable guide, excellent tour!

Martin met us on time at the National Museum and started right off the with the history of the area, including Velvet Revolution times. Off we went to the castle grounds, even getting metro tips along the way. The tour was very well paced - enough to be relaxing and thoroughly educational at the same time. Fun facts about Prague came amidst the tour and background of the castle fortifications, cemetery, cathedral and casements. It was so wonderful to see that the original statues from the bridges are being preserved, and in incredible surroundings. Thank you!

Great Prague Castle complex tour w/headset and 4 building interiors!

Maricella was an excellent tour guide! She was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic and kept the tour moving and helped us see many things in the castle complex. I was very happy I chose this tour because it was easy to find the group at the meeting spot, and we appreciated that the tram ride up the hill and the interior tickets were included in the price. It was easy to hear her because of the headsets they provided, and she gave a running commentary the entire time.

The Card is handy and additionally provides a focus for sightseeing

Great to have the card and guide. You can plan activities near each other. Seeing everything in the guide together provides a focus. Initially difficult to locate where to pick the guide and card up from. The boat trip was excellent. The Ice Bar was disappointing because to get your ‘free’ drink there was a hefty entrance fee Maybe the cost should be slightly less.

Really informative tour - definitely recommend!

The tour with Dylan was really great and informative. We learned lots about the city that we didn't know, and his recommendations came in very handy for the rest of our stay. I would recommend that anyone visiting for the first time takes part in a tour to learn about the city and also to meet fellow travellers!
