What to Expect
Discover what makes the Czech capital of Prague so magical on this full-day tour. An intimate small group affair, you will take in the sights of the Old Town and the Lesser Quarter all the way to Prague Castle.
The tour will start under the medieval Astronomical Clock in the middle of Old Town Square. Enjoy a walking tour around the compact Old Town, winding through the narrow alleyways lined with Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque churches and palaces. Your guide will weave through a web of hidden passageways to reach the local market and ultimately the Jewish Quarter.
After visiting the stalls and trying the wares of the market, you will make your way back out and into Wenceslas Square; one of Europe’s most famous and historical squares. Learn about some of the decisive moments in the country’s history, from the Prague Spring in 1968 to the Velvet Revolution in 1989.
Next, it’s on to Charles Bridge, but you will get a new perspective on this amazing structure by sailing underneath it first. Your group will board a replica 19th century sailing ship and ride under the bridge, passing the Old Town and gliding through the Little Quarter along the romantic Prague Venice Canal. This is a great chance to take photos.
Experience the medieval-like scenery while sipping Czech beer, lemonade or a hot drink. Back on dry land, you will meander across the bridge, stopping to stare up at its many towers and statues. You will then jump aboard a tram to ride over to Prague Castle. This is the world’s largest castle complex and no visit to Prague is complete without wandering through its magnificent structures. Here, the Prague tour will end at St.Vitus cathedral and free you to do your own further exploring of the country’s most beautiful French Gothic masterpiece.
Your guide will finalize the tour with a list of sights to explore on your own, restaurants to visit and secret local spots to call into before your trip to Prague comes to an end.
