    What to Expect
    Meet your guide in central Prague, and set off by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan. As you travel, hear an introduction to Prague’s UNESCO-listed castle, the world’s largest, as a prelude to your tour.

    Hop out at the hilltop 12th-century Strahov Monastery, one of the Czech Republic’s oldest monasteries, and hear about its history and famous brewery, a producer of some of the country’s best beers.

    Then, absorb the panoramas over Prague from a viewpoint before descending by foot to the nearby Castle District (Hradčany). See the landmarks of this charming area, including the Loreta pilgrimage complex, Cernin Palace and Schwarzenberg Palace, and then head inside Prague Castle, a vast complex of palaces, churches and other treasures.

    Walk through the courtyards as your guide details their history, and see the architectural highlights, including the Royal Palace, St. George’s Basilica, and St. Vitus Cathedral, arguably one of Europe’s most beautiful churches.

    Admire this Gothic masterpiece inside and out, and view the postcard-pretty 15th-century cottages along Golden Lane, once homes to castle artisans and soldiers.

    Your tour then finishes in the Mala Strana district. Alternatively, feel free to continue with your guide to the Charles Bridge and graffiti-coated John Lennon Wall, a key protest site in Soviet times.

    I did both tours with Vaclav as guide who was absolutely excellent! His knowledge on everything Czech from history to current events was very informative. He also handled an impolite old man asking impertinent questions in a very professional manner. I would recommend to

    I did the free walking tour in the morning with James and the Castle tour in the afternoon with Lucy as I had only one full day in Prague. It was quite tiring doing both as it includes hours and hours of walking but I highly recommend both tours. James was very entertaining,
