Overall rating

4.3 / 5

based on 1,648 reviews

Buses were fairly frequent and mostly on time. A few more stops would be appreciated as sometimes they were quite a distance apart. For example, out hotel was located between Zitna and Jecna with the nearest stops being Dancing House or IP Pavlova, both of which were about a 20 minute walk away. We were lucky with the weather but if wet would have been soaked. Wenceslas Square was also about a 20 minute walk away from our hotel - even though it said 10 minutes in all the literature!!

Got to see a lot more of Prague than we would have done just walking. We had a green line and red line clearly indicated on the map, work out your day and use the guide to help you switch between the 2 and get your best experience and value for money to. We also had a riverboat on ours it was brilliant to just chill out and have a drink and take in the Riverside views

It was a very enjoyable experience. The driver and the tour guide on one of the buses were very friendly and chatty and helpful. They made us very comfortable and we had a fun ride. A great way to see Prague.

The bus was clean with big windows and I was very comfortable. It’s a great city tour to sit and relax and then we got a 30 minutes on the grounds of the castle overlooking Prague so picturesque.

Excellent guide. Great experience all around. Loved it!
