Admire the treasures of the magical Prague Castle District on this fascinating tour. Your knowledgeable private guide will show you Prague’s cultural richness, and will tell you all you need to know about its history. Get ready for a tour crafted exclusively for you and your group of friends or family. 

Greet your favorite host up on a beautiful hill, where a beautiful monastery catches your eye. Dominating the cities panorama, it’s time to take a deep breath and enjoy a calm oasis with views over the Lesser Town. 

Let your host take you off-the-beaten track towards Prague’s castle neighborhood. Escape the crowds and walk through the quiet, picturesque Novy Svet district. Dating back to the 14th century, this small area consists of just a few streets that have retained the cozy, and even romantic atmosphere of a small village. 

Stroll through a valley of greenery that will give you a wonderful sense of being far away from the city buzz. Approach the Gothic spires of St. Vitus' Cathedral, the Daliborka Tower and other parts of the castle from a unique perspective. 

Get your camera ready as we’ll walk through an impressively unique designed tunnel. Admire its steep walls and follow the light at the end of the tunnel to guide you towards the castle area. 

The final stop will blow you away as you approach the largest castle complex in the world. Dating back from the 9th century, it’s the official residence of the President of the Czech Republic. Take a walk and admire the diversity of churches, gardens, alleyways and royal residences. Your private guide will tell you all about its history and more. Feel free to ask any questions along the way!

Czech Republic Illuminated

Dimitrios was charming and engaging. His knowledge of Czech history was broad yet he was able to relate the past to the present and explain why history unfolded as it did. Absolutely amazing!!! Highly recommend a tour or two with Dimitrios!!
