|The Prague Explorer Tour & Boat Trip is a full day of sightseeing, fun and discovery.|
Of all our Prague tours, the Explorer offers the most comprehensive introduction to the city.
A friendly local guide leads us on a wonderous journey through Prague, to uncover its dramatic history and legends, and to experience the city from all perspectives: from high above at Prague Castle, from the cobbled streets of the historical centre, and from the Vltava River.
This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned coach, part by boat, but mainly on foot (some of the city's finest areas are pedestrianised).
After meeting your guide in the Old Town, we board the coach for the transfer up to Prague Castle, where we embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the largest ancient castle complex in the world.
We'll bring the castle to life with stories of where kings were crowned and battles were fought, see St. Vitus Cathedral and the other magnificent buildings contained within the castle walls, and pause to take in spectacular views over the city.
Tip: One advantage of visiting the castle on a guided tour is that we will be escorted in via the shortest security queue.
From the castle, we walk down into the Lesser Town, to discover the beautiful buildings and churches in this most picturesque quarter of Prague.
Then, it's time for a well deserved break, with a 50-minute boat trip sailing around Charles Bridge and the historic centre of the city.
On board, you are served a complementary drink and snack.
Back on dry land, we cross Charles Bridge, taking in the fairy-tale views over the river, before entering the Old Town to learn of the traditions and legends connected to this fascinating area of the city.
We also visit the Jewish Quarter, once the largest Jewish ghetto in Europe.
Whilst in the Old Town, we stop off at a 15th century medieval tavern to enjoy a traditional Czech pub lunch. There is a choice of food on offer, including a vegetarian option, and it is served with either a Czech beer or soft drink.
Prague Experience walking tours are led by professional, licensed tourist guides.
The tour is in English as standard. If you require a tour in French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish, state it in Special Requests on the booking form.
The tour finishes in the Old Town.
Note: The order of the itinerary is subject to change in the event of adverse driving conditions.
Tip: The boat trip on this tour sails around the very centre of Prague, whereas lunch and dinner cruises travel further and include a meal and live music. If you wish to book this tour as well as a cruise you will enjoy both, as they offer different experiences.
