based on 1,186 reviews

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.

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.

The tour was a bit quick, but detailed. The dinner on the cruise ship was amazing and well worth the price. Be aware, the prices for drinks on the boat are higher than normal.

Very informative, convenient Had a lot of history information Had plenty of time at the castle. Highly recommend.
