Planning Your Prague Visit

Discover Czech Beer

True to its reputation, Czech beer is delicious. A newcomer might be confused by the beer's alcohol content, however. Don't worry, the numbers given to the beers don't indicate their alcohol percentage. They refer to the alcohol degree, which is a much more complicated factor. As a rule of thumb, 10 and 12 degrees, the most common, are equivalent to roughly 4% and 5% respectively. Some beers go all the way up to 19 degrees – that's 8% alcohol!

Try a Czech Hot Dog

Believe it or not, one of Prague's culinary highlights are its hot dogs. Infinitely superior to their American counterparts, these delicious sausages stuffed in French baguettes offer the best cheap lunch in town. Stalls are peppered throughout the city, just take your pick!

Prague: Prague Castle Tour with Interiors Reviewed by Mary, 02/11/2019

We lucked out. We had a private tour. Very thorough and friendly.

We had a great tour experience. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Pay attention to the meeting spot. We did not, went to the castle and had a long, lost walk but made it just in time to the bridge.

Superb. A must do activity if one visits prague

My guide David was amazing and he took to the streets of old town and the castle and amazing view points where you can see whole of prague lit in the dark.. the cobble stone paths , lanterns and tranquillity of the place mesmerises you which is just not possible during the day. Thank you David for this amazing experience

This was a moving experience, I can strongly recommend it to everyone

This tour is deeply moving. Our guide (Valentina) sensitively took us through each of the synagogues and the other relevant sites, leaving us time to take in, at one moment the beauty, at another the enormity, of the encounter on each occasion. We were constantly aware of the importance of this story, yet left with time to understand, assimilate and integrate each and every encounter. The personal attention helped to appreciate the detail of this tour. Two of us can highly recommend this tour.
