Enjoyed the walk up to the castle, lots of fun shops along the way. The castle tour is very well presented, each tour guide waits for the previous guide to move to the next room and close the door before they start their explanation of the room you are in, nice to not see guides having to talk over each other. Had excellent food on the way back down from the castle. The horse carriage is a great option to get up to the castle for those not wanting to make the hike up the hill. Driver was great getting us to and from Prague on schedule and safely.
