    Guide presented so much history related to all sights. We were given choice of tram or walking to the castle. If possible you should walk, it is beautiful! Our guide was such a history expert he imparted facts as storytelling, I learned so much! We were only 2 people on tour. A must do!

    I was fortunate enough to be the only person on the tour, and the guide was still as thorough and enthusiastic and answered all of my questions. I’d say this tour is for art and history lovers because the guide (I think his name was Argil) is extremely passionate and knowledgeable about history and he explains everything in detail. It can be a bit too much to take in for someone who’s not too interested in history, but perfect if you love learning. For me, it was excellent and I would recommend it.

    I happened to be the only person on the tour the day I went so I had the guide to myself. Before we even walked across the Charles Bridge, I was learning about the history and layout of Prague. The walk across the bridge was leisurely and informative. We took the tram to the top of the hill so the entire tour of the castle was flat or downhill. My guide pointed out so many little nuances that i would never have noticed. She answered all of my questions and was patient with my photo taking. After the tour, I had some time on my own to look in the shops and even walk back and climb the bell tower (a small extra fee). Only 283 stairs to the top! I recommend doing this tour first or early in your stay in Prague because you will use the info as you explore the city further.
