Unlock the Secrets of Prague Castle

We bet Prague Castle is on your must-see list, and for a good reason! But beware – the name is a bit deceiving as this is not your ordinary Cinderella’s Palace! Prague Castle is a huge complex that consists of many palaces, churches, courtyards, panorama points, and stunning gardens.

From the St. Vitus Cathedral to a Secret Alchemy Lab

On this tour, we’ll get you the tickets to visit the Castle interiors in advance so that we’ll start exploring right away (well, to be fair after we go through the security check – but we’ll take you through a Castle entrance that only locals know so no long lines here).

We’ll cover the magnificent St. Vitus Cathedral, the most beautiful church in our country. We’ll continue to the Old Royal Palace where, besides other things, you’ll hear all about certain strange events that got repeated throughout our history so many times, there’s now an official term for them. You’ll also have the unique opportunity to visit an underground alchemy lab that lay hidden for centuries.

Take a Peak into a Medieval Torture Chamber

The Czechs used to be quite a ferocious crowd and wouldn’t stop short of rather drastic methods in dealing with their adversaries. Did you know they had a torture chamber within the Castle complex? Let’s take a look at some of the instruments they used there.

Through the Picturesque Golden Lane to Amazing Views

Afterward, it’s time to be wowed by the 900s Basilica of St. George, the old burial place of our ancient kings. And of course, we can’t miss the fairy-tale street known as the Golden Lane! We’ll finish the tour with our favourite view of all Prague from yet another lovely Castle garden.

Cannot recommend this tour and Nikola enough! Jill D.

I would give Nikola 100 stars if I could for being the best tour guide we’ve had ever. She’s so knowledgeable about the castle, and all the things that we saw, and even recommended a delicious restaurant for us to try following our tour. I cannot recommend her highly enough. She is definitely a jewel in a beautiful city.

Great time at the Prague Castle Sebastien

Had a great time visiting the Prague Castle yesterday, Prague has so much history revolving around the castle and the guide knows how to make it interesting.

Highly Recommend AKR

My family and I had a fantastic experience on this tour. Our guide Misa was so knowledgeable and had a great sense of humor. One of the great things about this tours is that you get to see some parts of the castle that most people visiting Prague don't ever see. You certainly wouldn't get the same experience from walking around with an audio guide glued to your ear.

Incredible historical tour with an amazing guide! Christine

Michaela was a wonderful tour guide! We were in Prague for only a day but Michaela's knowledge of the castle and church along with her guidance made it seem like we really made the most of the short time we had to see and learn all there is about this historical place.

A fabulous tour to take Monika

This was a fabulous tour - full of information, a lovely overview of the city and visit of places were the locals hang out. The tour was informative and fun (not only for me, but also for the whole family, including 9-years old, very active daughter) and the guide - Michaela was a lovely person to be with, and she gave us personal and meaningful insights into the history and contemporary life of Prague. THANK YOU! We will be back soon!

The Perfect Prague Castle Tour Aaron G.

If you plan to visit the captivating and historic Prague Castle, doing so with a local guide who knows the history and the grounds as if it were her own will make for an unforgettable experience. Our tour with Michaela and Prague City Adventures was just that; highly personalized and curated for our interests, all the while covering the most beautiful, interesting, and hidden spots in the massive Prague Castle complex.

The Highlight of Our Stay! Andy M.

This was a highlight our trip to Prague and we would do it all over again if we are back in the city. Our guide, Misa, was charming, witty and so full of knowledge. There is so much you can learn in these historic sites and she managed to tell us the stories without making us feel overwhelmed. It was like walking around with an old friend, she was so warm and friendly. During and at the end of the tour she gave us recommendations of where to eat and some of the great little stores and quaint backstreets that make a visitor's time so special. Thank you Misa!!
