Best tours and trips in Prague

With all that Prague has to offer, an excellent option to discover the city is taking any of the numerous tours available!

No matter your desired way to explore the city -by foot, bus, boat or bike; or which of Prague’s treasures you’re eager to discover its rich gastronomy, emblematic architectural gems, or fantastic beers, there are plenty of tours and trip alternatives to satisfy every need.

Let’s break down the best and most popular ways to delve into the Czech capital:

Free walking tours Prague

Free walking tours are the most suitable option to go in-depth into the city’s history at a low cost. Generally led by knowledgeable locals or expats, the growing popularity of this kind of tour is a testament to just how special they can be.

You will learn all of the city’s interesting historic background and anecdotes along the way and will meet wonderful people from all parts of the world.

It is important to note that a more suitable name for this format would be “pay-what-you-want” since a tip is expected in exchange for the experience offered but the sum you will offer is entirely up to you to decide.

If you ever take a “free” walking tour, -which we highly recommend you do- you will find yourself wanting to leave a more generous sum to the guide/s for their incredible and passionate work.

While the Prague ghost tour is a paid alternative to the free tours, it offers a unique and entertaining way to discover the city’s dark side and delve into its eerie history.

Prague Bus tours

A very common option is taking a bus tour throughout the city’s most emblematic areas and sightseeing spots. This is perhaps the best option if you’re looking for a comfortable and flexible way to move around the city at a reasonable price.

An added benefit of taking a bus tour is that you can count on being shown around by savvy guides who know the city in and out, while also being able to take it at your own pace -hopping on and off at your chosen locations and being able to enjoy your biggest interests for as long as you want to.

Bus tours are available in a variety of formats and durations but are overall an excellent option and a good bang for your money.
