Join us on a leisurely afternoon excursion to some of the most historic sites in Prague, including a forty-five minute river cruise and a tour of the Prague Castle complex. The focus of the tour is mostly on the left bank of the river and is a great introduction for those who have not ventured there yet.
The tour begins on the Old Town Square, a UNESCO listed world heritage site, from where you will explore the Old Town with its narrow cobblestone streets, wonderful architecture and enchanting history. You can then take a casual stroll through the Clementinum complex – formerly a Jesuit college and Prague’s second largest building complex (after Prague Castle) – which is home to Baroque churches, the Mirror Chapel, and a branch of the National Library.
From there you will board a „Prague Venice“ boat for a relaxing cruise along the river. Whilst listening to the commentary and taking in the magnificent views, you will be served with drinks and refreshments. After disembarking, a wonderful finishing touch to this leg of the tour is a visit to the Charles Bridge Museum.
Your guide will then take you across the bridge at a leisurely pace so that you can take in the scenery and multitude of Baroque statues along the way. You will cross Kampa Island and pass the colourful Lennon Wall on your journey through the Lesser Town, an area many consider to be the most beautiful part of Prague. Surrounded by Baroque and Renaissance architecture, you will then board a tram to Prague Castle.
St. Vitus Cathedral, which towers over the castle complex, is not the only point of interest on the final leg of the tour. The tour concludes with a stroll through the vineyard, which has the most majestic views of the grand city of Prague.
The tour walks through the courtyards but does not enter buildings.
All our tours start from Tynska 7 in Prague’s Old Town, just a few minutes’ walk from the Old Town Square.
