Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 4,224 reviews

The nice thing about the pass is the use of public transport. You don't have to worry about tariffs or tickets. Some of the admission staff in the facilities were overwhelmed and could not handle the digital pass. But was then simply waved through everywhere. A list of the objects of the passport is unfortunately missing!!!

There isn't so much to see in this tower, but it's nice to read the history and gain information about Prague's past and other aspects. The view is very nice and the employees were very friendly. Enjoyed their hosting and attention.

The bus was clean with big windows and I was very comfortable. It’s a great city tour to sit and relax and then we got a 30 minutes on the grounds of the castle overlooking Prague so picturesque.

So worth the money! Got us in to all the attractions we wanted and so easy to use for the public transport. Very easy to the app.

Tour guide very knowledgeable. Bunker was very interesting
