Compact tour with a focus on Prague Castle

The pick-up from the hotel was announced by email the day before. We found this non-binding additional service good. The trip goes by minibus to the most important sights. On the way, our guide Jana had time to explain this and that in detail due to the heavy traffic. Jana shone as an insider and spoke German very well. After about 1.5 hours we went to the castle. There about 1 hour to the river with the most important information. No time for extensive sightseeing. You should plan a whole day at the castle for this. Finally, another 1 half hour on the Old Town Square. Recommendable!

Adorable guide

A great time spent with our guide Yoyo, known as our granny from Prague. Adorable, charming, knowing perfectly the history of Prague and each monuments of this superb city. We even recommended places where we could visit without paying, such as the royal garden and some churches. She even accompanied us to the post office to buy postcards. Helpful and available, taking pictures of us on St Charles Bridge and a guard of the Prague Castle. I especially thank her for her kindness and this day which would not have been the same without her.

It was an amazing experience. Loved the walking tour around the whole town. It’s a little long in duration but still fantastic.
