Prague Tours and Excursions You Can't Afford to Miss

Prague is a very popular short break holiday destination. Its compact size makes it ideal for walking but this takes up time. That's why sightseeing tours are very popular. Hop-on Hop-off bus is an attractive way to see the city's main sights in one day. Listen to the narrated comment in your language, twenty-two to choose from,  hop off any time to get a closer view of some of the sights. Be sure to stop at Prague Castle and pedestrian-only Charles Bridge.

Prague's Stare Mesto quarter is a maze of winding streets and it's easy to lose your bearings. A guided walking tour is a fun way to explore this part of the city. The bonus is that this tour is free of charge. Vltava River Cruises are becoming increasingly popular. Sit on the deck in summer or in the heated area inside in winter. The panorama windows offer full view of St Vitus Cathedral and the castle complex perched on a hill top. If you feel more active try to see the city while pedaling around on a bicycle or take a Segway tour. It is amazing how quickly you will get the hang of moving through Prague on wheels.

The most popular day trip from Prague is a visit to the city of Kutna Hora, only seventy kilometers away. Do it under your own steam or join a guided tour. Here are some suggestions for day trips and excursions so that you can start exploring Prague straight away.
