An Authentic Experience 

The best way to experience Prague is with a passionate resident by your side. Our city might be a tourist hot spot but there are so many hidden gems to discover that you can turn your sightseeing into a real local adventure. As we explore the iconic Old Town, the Lesser Town and the Prague Castle complex, we’ll take you to the must-see sites as well as some of our favourite secret spots.

Sights You Wouldn’t Want to Miss

From our meeting in front of the Municipal House, to the final goodbye at the Prague Castle, this tour is filled with historical sites that make up the great architectural profile of Prague. Leaving the city without seeing any of these is as if you’ve never been here at all!

As we roam the narrow alleyways that make up the Old Town, you’ll get to admire the gorgeous Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architectural styles of its many churches and other historic buildings. In the Old Town Square, we’ll witness the famous Astronomical Clock, one of our most iconic landmarks.

History, Architecture and Picture-Worthy Views

Make sure to bring your camera! As we cross to the other side of the Vltava River, we’ll get some stunning views of the city. The second oldest bridge in the country, Charles Bridge became an open-air gallery and a symbol of Prague. Next stop is the Church of St. Nicholas, our most beautiful church, and its Bell Tower used by the secret police force during the Communist era to spy on foreign embassies. 

Our last stop is the world-famous Prague Castle. Perched atop a hill, it’s the world’s largest castle complex and no visit to Prague is complete without a peak into its stunning grounds. (On this tour we’ll explore the exteriors only but if you’d like to go inside, let us know and we can organise that for you on a separate tour – you’ll need at least 3 hours for that!)

Hungry?

Together, we’ll grab a delicious and filling lunch at a traditional restaurant from the same era as the Charles Bridge. No worries if you aren’t a meat-lover, we have you covered with a vegetarian option. 

Discover Prague in a Small Group

With just a few fellow travellers and the company of a passionate, knowledgeable guide, this is the best way to cram in all that Prague has to offer in just a couple of hours while feeling like you’re on a day out with friends!

How ‘bout a Boat?

If you are up to a sailor-ending of the day, just let us know and we’ll take you for an optional add-on onto the water! Sit back and relax as we cruise down the Vltava River on board the replica of a 19th-century sailboat, with a Czech beer (or other beverage) in-hand.

What Else You Should Know

If you love history, culture and exploring interesting places along with new friends, this Prague City Highlights tour is for you!

  • Our tours run rain or shine

In case of rain, please dress accordingly and bring an umbrella or a raincoat with you. In winter, temperatures can get quite low, be aware of that and put an extra sweater into your backpack. But remember – it’s your vacation, so if you are cold during the tour, just say so to your guide. There’s always a cafe nearby where you can warm up and then go on with the tour.

  • Put on your walking shoes

Walking involved in the tours vary as each tour guide takes a slightly different route (which means you can take our tours multiple times and always discover something new). But we still run cultural and food tours, we don’t run marathons. If you lose weight on our tour, we’ll offer a refund :-). However, please do let us know in advance if you have mobility issues. We can always adjust the itinerary so that there’s less walking included.

  • So I have these food restrictions?

Traditional Czech cuisine relies heavily on meat, milk and butter. As much as we’d love to host anyone on our tours, please know that we cannot properly feed you if you are vegan or lactose-intolerant. Please contact us if you would like recommendations for good places for you to try outside of this tour – we are happy to help.

Vegetarians are welcome on all of our tours.

A great full day tour of Prague with Tereza from Prague city adventures Steven M.

Our guide Tereza was a pleasure to meet, she showed us the best sights and attractions of Prague and the hidden gems that you couldn't find unless you were a local.

THE best tour of our trip! Mary

By far, THE best tour of our 12 day European vacation! Michaela met us at our hotel to begin our Prague City Highlights tour. We felt fortunate to be the only 2 on this rainy day as it gave her the opportunity to customize our tour. We saw many important sites, enjoyed coffee and later lunch, and a little shopping. On a scale of 1-10, this was an 11! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Prague City Adventures Julia S.

We just had the best tour with Prague City Adventure! Our guide was Pavla and she was excellent! She knows Prague's every corner, every shortcut. She describes the history and architecture in an engaging way, making it real, personal. She was great with recommendations for other interesting sightseeing options, restaurants, shops, you name it. Highly highly recommend City Adventure for tours and excursions!

Amazing time in Prague! Hilary

This is the second of two tours we did with PragueCityAdventure and we totally loved it! The company is professional from beginning (at time of booking) with close follow ups till the end (even after we have left Prague). Be sure to book this tour when you are in Prague! You will definitely NOT regret it.

A phenomenal tour! Melissa

This was a phenomenal tour. Our tour guide, Guillaume, took us all over the city; was very knowledgeable about the history, architecture, and local culture; and was a wonderful storyteller and conversationalist. Loved that we went with an intimate group of just four of us. And Guillaume’s special touches - bringing local pastries for us to try, mapping out places to see and eat for later in our trip, and sending us an email summary of our tour - was so greatly appreciated.
