Quick and easy way to explore the city. It was very enjoyable. Based on the review, I knew ahead of time the 45 minutes allotted to see the castle wasn't enough time, which it is definitely not enough time as there is alot to see. However, the tour does provide the option to get on a later bus to return to the meeting point.

As not fully booked we had a private tour with a very friendly guide. He told us so many information about Prague, the history of the Republic and side facts about architecture, politics and many more, that we were completely overwhelmed. Highly recommended!

Our guide was very knowledgable and threw in some jokes and annectodes from time to time to give us a small brake from the many historical facts. We got a good impression of the city. Definetively recommend this tour!

Very informative, convenient Had a lot of history information Had plenty of time at the castle. Highly recommend.
