Tattyana was an excellent guide, and the six and a half hour tour was well put together, brief bus tour, walk around and down from castle, stop for coffee in Jewish Quarter, brief walk to boat tour where we could sit and have a drink with the view, then brief walk to restaurant for nice lunch, finishing off with walk through the Old Town Square to Wenceslas Square. And there were only seven of us in the group, which was a real bonus - most groups we saw had 20 or 30 people. Overall, despite some rain, an excellent tour.

Fantastic!!! The roof walkways are small so not the best if you’ve got mobility issues (like myself), however everyone is super nice and helpful and will help/move with you. Tower has the most incredible stain glass and statues. Old town hall is interesting.

Well organised and clear where you have to go Optional lift or walk to the top of the clock tower View was amazing from the top, well worth it, good photo opportunity

I really loved this tour. Hannah was my guide, she was very nice and provided good information. I gladly recommmend it.

A great afternoon tour of the city. Friendly, informative and depending on how fast you go, a lit bit of danger
