Short walking tour across the Charles Bridge with introduction and historical context to the tram stop that takes you up to the castle. Detailed visit of the Cathedral, the Basilica and the rooms of the castle that can be visited. Free time at Golden Lane. Extremely knowledgeable guide, comprehensive and interesting tour. The tour ends at the golden alley, not at the initial meeting point, so you have to get off independently (simply walk down Nerudova street) or exit the castle entrance and take the tram again (return ticket not included but purchasable on the tram)

This tour is not just Prague Castle but an overview of the city of Prague itself as well as a little bit of the Czech Republic. Perfect for the amount of time and a great introductory tour for a first timer to the city. Also for my family with young kids, it was perfect for them as well. Our guide was fantastic - humorous, personable, helpful and very knowledgeable.

Beautiful guided tour of the castle. The guide, Hana, is very knowledgeable, engaging, helpful and professional. The castle is very large and the visit itself would have been very distracting without the guide who was able to condense explanations and key details into the tour that were useful for understanding where you are and what to appreciate. On the advice of the guide (who made himself available to accompany us even after his hours of service), we were able to see the beautiful cathedral of San Vito and enjoyed the exhibition of the crown jewels, even if temporarily not included in the guided tour. Absolutely recommended. For those who wish, the same guide, Hana, takes care of the guided tour of the Jewish quarter with a visit to the synagogues and the cemetery. Here too the guide proved to be invaluable and made us immerse ourselves in the history and customs of the Jewish quarter of Prague. His preparation impressed me a lot. I recommend both visits to everyone!
