  • The Prague Castle tour was as expected....very good. We were transported by a small bus from the city center up to the top of Castle Hill. The tour guide was very informative, telling us about the history of the Castle. We were able to comfortably see what we wanted to see. Lots of walking during this 3.5 hour tour. Only thing I would change would be to allow some shopping time on Golden Lane before walking down the hill.

  • Tour was very disjointed. Guide tried hard but 2 French speaking people so the 15 others had to stand around as every site was discussed in French. Never paused for a bathroom break for 3 hrs. My tours with Absolute tours were much better.

  • I enjoyed this tour. Guide was very knowledgeable and a nice person. He answered everyone's questions with detail and enthusiasm. He likes his job and it showed! Made for an enjoyable tour. Would recommend this tour.

  • The castle grounds are so large it would be really hard to take it all in without a tour. Our guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic about her subject which made it that much more interesting. The tour was a lot of walking, often up hill, and usually on uneven cobblestones. One of the members of our group had her elderly mother with her, and it became clear that the walking was really challenging. For me, the walking was great and the view of the city from the top of the hill was spectacular! I highly recommend this tour!

  • Excellent tour guide who went out of her way to explain the detailed history of Prague. She kept the tour lively and was able to keep the attention of children to adults. At the end of the tour she went out of her way to direct us to another historical site we wanted to visit that was not on the tour. Our tour was bi-lingual English and Spanish.

  • Very nice job from our Tour Guide, what kept things flowing and got us through a very busy area. only reason not a 5 is the castle itself is so busy we spent a lot of time in lines, being jostled in a crowd.

  • It was a great tour, very informative, we only had 6 people in the group and it was great! The guide was very nice and accommodating, she was very knowledgeable and answered all our questions including the ones outside of the tour content. I would say that visit the castle without the guide wouldnt be as interesting and informative.
    Some things you should know: this tour is really long and you have to stand or walk the entire time, so be prepared for that, also many city tours stop at the castle and give some basic information about it so if you dont have time you may skip the castle tour, but if you can do it, I highly recommend it.

  • Excellent tour and outstanding guide! Our guide clearly feels proud of being Czech and took the time to point out every important detail of the Castle. She made this tour unforgettable.

  • We signed up for an English tour. But found out that they do the tour in 2 Languages. So we were on the English/Spanish tour. The guide would explain everything in English for 7 of us and then re-explain everything again in Spanish for 3 people. We noticed the same on an English/German tour with the same company. So the tour really takes twice as long and you spend a lot of time listening in another language.It really disturbs the flow of the tour and makes it really long and leaves the feeling that there is more information you could be getting during this time. Its not the guides fault obviously the company has decided this is a good experience. I could tell we missed things that I would l have heard if I would have just rented the audio tour at the castle. I would recommend if something like this bothers you... double check to see if they do 2 languages at the same time. We couldn't wait for the tour to be over it really felt like a waste of time.

  • These tour are all about the guides and I got a VERY soft spoken one and basically could not hear anything. No one in our could and we were all laughing about it. Don't get me wrong, she was very sweet and nice and all that, but I got nothing out of the tour and should have just gotten the audio guides that are available at the castle. This tour was not 3 hours. We were in the van 1 hour and still not at the castle. We had to go to the other side of town in traffic to a second meeting spot to pick up a second group of people which cut into our time significantly. My advice- be certain that you will get what you are expecting or just get the audio guides. For us, there was no benefit in having a tour guide for this event.
