Spot the gargoyles that adorn the exterior of the church. Be dazzled by the Art-Nouveau stained glass window made by Czech artist Alfons Mucha. Admire the 14th-century mosaic of the last judgment. See the tombs of St. Wenceslas and Charles IV, the baroque tomb of St. J...
Communication during the tour needs to be improved. We did not have earphones and the tour guide didn't have good English. The tour was as expected.
Meet your representative at the designated date and time and enjoy a short (15-20 minute) introductory overview in English to the castle complex. The representative will then exchange your voucher for your ticket (Circuit B), which covers the best there is to see at Prague Castle, including the St. Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and Golden Lane with Daliborka Tower. Then, explore Prague Castle at your own pace and discover its beautiful interiors. Your ticket is valid for 2 days and allows you one entry to each building in the castle interiors during this whole period.
No waiting lines, clear instructions in different languages. This takes max 10 minutes. After that you can experience everything in your own speed.
The Old Town Hall is located on the Old Town Square and was established in 1338 as the seat of the Old Town administration. The complex consists of 5 buildings. The dominant part of the building is a Gothic tower with a chapel and a unique astronomical clock, where every hour between 9:00 AM and 11:00 PM, the twelve apostles rotate. Start your tour on the first floor, where the staterooms are located. Continue to the Gothic chapel of the Virgin Mary and the ceremonial halls. Afterwards, use the staircase leading to the third floor to the viewing gallery of the 70-meter tall tower and enjoy the most amazing views of Prague. A guided visit of the Old Town Hall medieval underground is included in your entrance ticket, so make sure not to miss out!
Astronomical watch is the second favorite place for me after Charles bridge! It is very impressive inside and outside !!!

It was a pretty nice experience. Would have been better if there was someone in person who explains the stuff instead of goin in on your own & reading stuff by yourself. But well the beer tasting was pretty nice. Loved both of the 4 beers specially the Demon one. The best part was bottling my own personalized bottle of beer as souvenir! Awesome! Perfect souvenir after drinking all those tons of liters of beer during my trip.

The tour was excellent. George, our driver, picked us up at the agreed upon time. The van was comfortable and clean. Hannah, our guide, was personable, knowledgeable and easy going. The sites we visited are, of course, somber; but the experience was very informative. Highly recommend this tour and this company.

This tour was so much fun! Rene our guide was a real well of knowledge, he captured our attention with facts and interesting stories, and he did his best for us to feel safe and entertained. Driving around on electric bicycles and segways was a perfect way to learn about Prague and to see as much as possible.
The tour was really great, a great guide, very individual and personal. If we come to Prague again, we will definitely do another tour to get to know other beautiful parts of Prague. Thank you.
