Magnificent experience, we walked a lot, we saw so many things that without the card we probably would have discarded. Public transport is very comfortable, too bad they are not included in the discounts. Gorgeous city Prague.

Our guide was very knowledgable and threw in some jokes and annectodes from time to time to give us a small brake from the many historical facts. We got a good impression of the city. Definetively recommend this tour!
