The 2-hour city tour was really worth it, without it we wouldn't have discovered everything we saw, everything was great with the audio guide too and you heard and saw a lot. I can only recommend.

An all-round successful excursion, we booked the boat trip that was offered, that was a good decision. She rounded off the program perfectly.

To recommend! You could quickly get a nice overview of all the major sights. The ride was really fun.

Comfortable seats on the bus. Informative about the city. Length of tour just right.

To get an overview of the sights in Prague, this tour is highly recommended.
