What people are saying about Castle District, Prague

Started out rocky. GYG said pick up time was 9:45-10am but tour company was there at 9:30. Got a call at 10 asking where I was! Been standing outside from 9:42! Anyway, now the driver/guide ran through the city saying on right you see this and on left you see that. We had no idea what we were looking at or time to take pictures. After about a half hour of that, we were dropped off at the castle and met our walking guide. She was very good and the rest of the day went very well. She was a very good guide and we saw a lot. Our included lunch was very good also.

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.

Great tour. It would be nice if the free 45 minutes, which are given to explore the magnificent temple, were also organized by the guide

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

there was a lot of walking but as it was down hill it is mangable
