Did you know that the Prague Castle holds the Guinness world record for largest castle complex in the world? The castle's buildings also once housed kings, holy Roman emperors and, since 1918, Czech presidents.

  • Wonderful palace but the guide didn't speak great English and we were in a multi language group so we missed out on quite a lot.

  • Really great tour, a beautiful building. One of the highlights of our trip

  • Our guide didn't interact much with us. We didn't have anytime to look around Golden Lane. The castle didn't have much to look at compared to other tours.

  • Long lines--not the tour guide's fault. However, he had to divide his time translating for a couple of other tourists and it really did effect the amount of information that was presented.

  • One of the best tours that we did in Europe. We had a great tour guide! She even went out of her way to send me a personal email with her Goulash recipe. She was very informative and knowledgeable in Prague's history and events. Thoroughly enjoyed this tour and would gladly do it again next time I am in Prague.

  • This was an interesting and fascinating place to visit. Being able to actually see the place I am learning about, enhances my understanding of the history and culture. I would have liked to go into more buildings, but the cathedral was impressive. My tour guide spoke English well and we didn't have a language issue.

  • I was hoping to see a castle, but the cathedral was all that was viewed. It was a bilingual tour so everything was rushed and impersonal. I was also very disappointed that no transportation was provided to get back to where we started the tour.

  • Sorry to say our guide could not handle the bilingual group that was to large for her. The information that she had about our tour objective was very superficial at best.

  • One of the best tours I have had. The tour guide was outstanding.

  • Good tour but not quite what I imagined given you can't go inside the castle only the church. The guide was good and the tour was interesting but not sure if I would do it again.
