A good way to get to know the important sights of Prague is to take part in a sightseeing tour. There are many attractions in the Old Town, but there is also a lot further away. Already the way to the Prague castle (about 2 km) is quite laborious on foot, since the castle is on a mountain above the city.
Many things in Prague are not too expensive. This is also true for some sightseeing tours by bus. There are many offers for bus tours through Prague: good and bad, expensive and inexpensive. In the following we have selected 3 from our point of view good bus tours, we also paid a lot of attention to the price.
