Half-day Walking & Driving Introductory tour to the Golden City


This tour is designed to give you an overview of the main sights of our city. A comfortable car will take you by Wenceslas Square (with its famous statue of St. Wenceslas), the State Opera House, the National Museum, along cobblestone roads and over the Vltava River to the Prague Castle district. From there, we will embark on foot and 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 Golden Lane and down the Old Castle Stairs. From there, our driver will bring us back over the Vltava River and down the exclusive Paris Street to the Old Town Square, where we'll have a chance to see the Old Town Hall with its famous Astronomical Clock, St. Nicholas Church and Tyn Church.

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 4 travelers, contact me so I can create a customized tour for you and the price is subject to change.

A Recent Review of this tour

We were eight days in Prague and surrounds and we did the half day tour the second day of our trip. Ljuba gave us a superb intro to the city where we would be spending the next week, noting the essential spots to revisit after our time with her. She is "up" on the history and stories that make Prague such a divine destination for a few days.
