The bus ride itself was nice and interesting. Even if it didn't take 2 hours. We started about 10 minutes later and the break at the castle was 10 minutes longer and we got back to the starting point 5 minutes earlier, so the ride itself wasn't that long. The 30 (40) minute break is part of the 2 hours. All of this should be taken into account.

Good option to see the city with kids for two hours. We only get off the bus when we visited the Prague castle and decided to stay there for long because 30 mins was very short to visit all around the castle district. There is an extra entrance fee for every building that you will visit. Glad that we have booked in advance too.

Quick and easy way to explore the city. It was very enjoyable. Based on the review, I knew ahead of time the 45 minutes allotted to see the castle wasn't enough time, which it is definitely not enough time as there is alot to see. However, the tour does provide the option to get on a later bus to return to the meeting point.
