The Prague Highlights Tour is perfect for a half day overview of the best that Prague has to offer. It offers the maximum experience packed in 4 intense hours.
Prague is nicknamed the “pearl among cities” for a reason. The whole city center is included in UNESCO. One is stunned by the beauty of its contrasting yet harmonic architecture. Gothic cathedrals rub shoulder with renaissance mansions, synagogues, baroque churches, cubist buildings, and Art Nouveau palaces. The standard half-day Prague Highlights Tour consists of the visit to the Prague castle (St.Vitus Cathedral, Old Royal Palace and St.George basilica), the Charles Bridge and the Old Town Square, but we can customize the tour according to your preferences.
The half-day sightseeing tour of Prague begins when our guide (and driver) pick you up at your hotel. Then we will drive to one of the spectacular panoramic city viewpoints where you can shoot great photos of the picturesque sea of the red roofs of the burger houses, the copper-green churches and the dark limestone of the watchtowers. You will fully appreciate why Prague is often called a city of 100 spires from the vantage point.
Then we will move to the Prague castle. If you are really short on time, it is possible to see just the free zone of the St.Vitus cathedral (about 6 meters / 20 feet from the entrance) and then pass through the courtyards, but we strongly recommend adding the combined ticket for the cathedral, Old Royal Palace, St.George’s church and the Golden Lane – seeing all these, we will spend about 1.5 hours at the Prague castle.
We continue to the majestic Charles bridge, the second oldest stone bridge in the Czech Republic founded by Charles IV in 1357. It is decorated by 30 mostly baroque monumental statues.Afterward, we get on the car and move to the Old Town square surrounded by a mix of colorful houses and churches. You must not miss the beautiful moving astronomical clock (orloj) of the Old Townhall, followed by going up to the Old Townhall tower for a splendid view. The tour ends either in the Old Town, where we will gladly recommend a restaurant for lunch, or we can drive you back to your hotel.
