Overview
Highlights
    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Prague, and set off by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, hear an introduction to Prague’s UNESCO-listed castle, the world’s largest, as a prelude to your tour.

    Hop out at the hilltop 12th-century Strahov Monastery, one of the Czech Republic’s oldest monasteries, and hear about its history and famous brewery, a producer of some of the country’s best beers.

    Then, absorb the panoramas over Prague from a viewpoint before descending by foot to the nearby Castle District (Hradčany). See the landmarks of this charming area, including the Loreta pilgrimage complex, Cernin Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace, and then head inside Prague Castle, a vast complex of palaces, churches and other treasures.

    Walk through the courtyards as your guide details their history, and see the architectural highlights, including the Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and St. Vitus Cathedral, arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful churches.

    Admire this Gothic masterpiece inside and out, and view the postcard-pretty 15th-century cottages along Golden Lane, once homes to castle artisans and soldiers.

    Your tour then finishes in the Mala Strana district. Alternatively, feel free to continue with your guide to the Charles Bridge and graffiti-coated John Lennon Wall, a key protest site in Soviet times.

    We actually did the free walking tour in the morning with Aris, who was brilliant. Showed us everything of interest and answered all our questions, so when he told us about the castle tour with him that afternoon we jumped at it. Bus ride to the highest point was a bonus as I

    Trip was good if you want to see the castle and cathedral. There is no castle in the traditional sense and you only get to see a third of the cathedral but it’s enough to get a taste of what it’s all about. Bring extra socks and layers if you are doing this in winter as it might
