Why join our Prague Castle Tour with tickets?

Over the years of guiding we have been carefully listening to our customer's feedback in order to design this tour so Prague travelers get the most out of their Prague Castle visit. We love Prague Castle! it is one of our most favorite places on this planet and we think that being a part of a tour group of 30 people being rushed through the complex without a chance to peek inside the buildings is not the way to see it.

Here are the top reasons why to join us:
  1. Our tour groups don't exceed the number of 10 people. That way we can easily fit inside the rooms of the Old Royal Palace, you won't feel like a sardine and it will be easier for you to ask your guide questions.
  2. We take it chill. (so you won't feel rushed)
  3. Our Prague Castle tour is in English only. (not bilingual)
  4. Skip the line ticket! Yes! As Prague Licensed Guides we have a priority in the ticket office and don't have to waste time standing in line (be aware though that sometimes there is a line to the St. Vitus Cathedral, which we can not skip).
  5. We are funny! Or at least we think we are :P
  6. A good rating on Tripadvisor. See for yourself!
