|The Prague Explorer Tour + Boat Trip is a full day of sightseeing and discovery in the company of an expert local guide.|
Of all the Prague tours, the Explorer is the most wonderous and all-encompassing. We experience the city from all perspectives: from high above at Prague Castle, from the cobbled streets of the historical centre, and from a cruise on the Vltava River.
This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned bus, part by boat, and part on foot (some of the city's finest areas are pedestrianised).
After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we begin the tour with a drive up to Prague Castle, where we embark on a 2-hour walking tour of the largest ancient castle complex in the world.
Your guide will bring the castle to life with stories of where kings were crowned and battles were fought. We visit St. Vitus Cathedral and see the other magnificent buildings within the castle walls. And we seek out spectacular views over the whole city.
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 historical 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 fine medieval tavern to enjoy a traditional Czech pub lunch. There is a choice of food on offer, including a vegetarian option. Plus it is served with either a Czech beer or soft drink.
Prague Experience walking tours are led by professional, licensed tourist guides and are in English as standard.
If you require a tour in German, 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 sails around the centre of the city only, whereas our lunch and dinner cruises travel much further, and include a meal and live music. So if you wish to book this tour as well as a cruise you will enjoy both, as they offer different experiences.
