Prague sightseeing tours
The Skoda Car Plant, owned by Volkswagen, is one of the most modern car factories in the world. The tour explores the cutting edge processes employed and delves into the history of the famous car maker.
This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part on foot.
After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we drive for around 45 minutes to reach the town of Mlada Boleslav, the home of the Skoda Car Company.
Skoda was founded in 1895, and has produced a huge range of classic automobiles over the years. Indeed, up until the second world war Skoda was a pioneer in the field, building some of the finest cars anywhere in the world.
We begin the visit at the Skoda Car Museum with a short film on the history and development of Skoda car production.
Next, we walk through the collection of historic cars on display, which chart the evolution of the company. Some cars date from the very origins of the factory, and all have been painstakingly restored.
We then transfer to the modern car plant. Under Volkswagen's ownership, Skoda has received hundreds of millions of Euros of investment. Visitors will be impressed by this ultra clean and highly efficient plant.
Skoda is one of only a few car makers to allow visitors into their factory, offering a rare opportunity to follow the entire car production process. We tour both the engine and car assembly areas.
For refreshments, an onsite café stocks sandwiches and drinks.
Prague Experience sightseeing tours are in English and another language. They are led by professional, licensed tourist guides and use modern, air-conditioned mini-coaches.
If you require a tour in French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish, state it in Special Requests on the booking form.
The trip finishes back in Prague, near Wenceslas Square.
Participants in the Skoda Car Plant tour must be 12 years or older.
