Overview

Get to know Prague Castle and the Castle District on foot during this half-day walking tour. Book this guided tour, and check a major must-see off your to-do list. Learn about the ancient history of the area through your guide's in-depth commentary as you explore Mala Strana, the Golden Lane, and views of St. Vitus Cathedral.

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 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.

Rushed, just not the best

Guide had such a heavy accent and rushed tour to keep moving, meaning those slower in the group missed 75% of her comments. Not our best tour in this beautiful city.

Very good walking tour with Ryan Hume

Fantastic no matter what your age :))

Pavel, our native English speaking guide, a veritable fount of knowledge picked up the 13 of us mixed nationalities across the very interesting Most Legií bridge to catch a tram, (get on quickly!), up to Prague Castle. Then through the guarded gate into the 70,000...More

Most of the tours meet in Old Town Square ((Staroměstské náměstí). It's the main square and has a huge sculpture in the center. Just look for the sign with the name of the company you signed up with. If you sign up, for... More

It's always better to buy eveything on the internet and going straight to the meeting point with a printed voucher. Actually many times cheaper
