Highlights
  • Explore the must-see Prague Castle district on foot with a guide
  • Learn more than you would on your own about the area’s history from your guide
  • Exploring on foot gives you a ground-up perspective on the area
  • This half-day tour leaves plenty of time for other activities
What to Expect
Meet your guide and group in central Prague, and set off on your walking tour. You won't have to worry about fussing with a map or planning a route because your guide has planned out a comprehensive Prague Castle itinerary for you. Cross the Vltava River and catch your first views of the castle as your guide provides an orientation. Then climb the hillside and enter the baroque Mala Strana district. Pause to snap photos of the World War II memorial and St. Nicholas Church, and then take the tram (own cost) up to the castle. Enter through the North Gate, passing the Powder Bridge and the Royal Gardens on the way to Hradčany Square. See the Scwarzenberg Palace, the Second and Third Courtyards, and the enormous St. Vitus Cathedral. After checking out the church's interior, head for the Golden Lane, where your guide sheds light on the past inhabitants, including Franz Kafka, goldsmiths, and fusiliers. Get much more information on this history-rich area from your guide than you would exploring on your own. End up at a spot on the hillside that looks out over the city, a perfect vantage point for a last photo. Alternatively, walk back to the Charles Bridge together, where your guided tour ends.

This is good option for people who have limited time and want to take a quick your around the castle. Please keep a tram pass/ticket to go to the castle to avoid any hassle. But even if you don't have the guide will wait for you.
