Half-day Introductory Tour of the Golden City with a Private Driver


This tour is designed to give you an overview of the main sights of the Golden City, the City of a Hundred Spires, including Wenceslas Square, the State Opera House, the National Museum, Prague Castle (including St. Vitus Cathedral), Pařížská Street, Old Town Square and the Astronomical Clock, Charles Bridge and Kampa Island.

This is only a rough outline, and we can change the order or specifics around to suit your needs. If your party is larger then 6 travelers, contact me so I can create a customized tour for you and the price is subject to change.

Itinerary

My driver and I will meet you at your hotel. I recommend starting early - 8:30 a. m. is ideal. Our comfortable car will take you by Wenceslas Square, the State Opera House, the National Museum, along cobblestone roads and over the Vltava River to the Prague Castle district. From there, we will walk through the main gate, past the Archbishop's Palace to St. Vitus Cathedral. After viewing the cathedral (which took over 600 years to build), we will continue on to the Royal Palace, the presidential balcony, the statue of St George, beautiful Royal Gardens, and fountains. From there, our driver will bring us back over the Vltava River and down the exclusive Pařížská (Paris) Street to Old Town Square, where we'll see the Old Town Hall and the famous Astronomical Clock, St. Nicholas Church, and Tyn Church. On the way, we will stop and walk around the Malá Strana end of the Charles Bridge and romantic Kampa Island and see Prague's Little Venice!

At the end of the tour, I can suggest a great stop for lunch.

Meeting Point + Tour Duration

Meeting Point Options: Rail or Bus Station, Cruise Ship Port, Airport, Hotel, Address or Intersection, Monument/Building

Duration: 3 hours 30 min.

Based on my experience I would honestly suggest we meet and begin this tour at 8:30 a.m.

By starting our tour at this time we are usually able to avoid long queues and big crowds. This will allow you an unobstructed view of the sights and delights that Prague has to offer.
