    Quick and easy way to explore the city. It was very enjoyable. Based on the review, I knew ahead of time the 45 minutes allotted to see the castle wasn't enough time, which it is definitely not enough time as there is alot to see. However, the tour does provide the option to get on a later bus to return to the meeting point.

    We were in Prague for two days. In order to see a lot of the very beautiful city, we booked the two-hour bus tour. All four of us liked it very much. The bus was welcoming and the stay at the castle was very nice. We would never have been able to see the sights on foot. The explanations over headphones were also great. We can only recommend the tour.

    The actual bus tour is about 1.25 hours with a 45 minute stop to get off at the castle and enjoy views of Prague. We saw the changing of the guards which was quite awesome. But if you did not plan on getting off this may be a disappointment as this was not communicated beforehand.
