We had a great time with our guide Kate. She was very friendly and informative, did things in our pace, took as many pictures as we asked her to, and took the time to give us additional information about where to eat, how to use public transportation in Prague and any other questions we thought to ask her. The ride itself is very pleasant, mostly through a park that goes along the Vlatva River up to the Prague Castle, with great viewing points along the way. I just caution everyone that this is mostly uphill, so if you dont feel like a bit of extra exercise, you should upgrade to the electric bikes which are also available. All in all, we had a great time and a certainly recommend this tour.
The company sent a cab to pick us up from our flat which was nice! They provided us with water.The sites we saw were amazing. Some of them were off the beaten path because you can bike farther than you can walk, so we didn't see them in other tours we did. The guide was great and had a lot of info. But, be prepared, Prague is a hilly city and the bikes used are mountain bikes, not electric bikes. I didn't realize how many hills were in the city which I should have researched, but didn't. Because I have joints issues, the tour probably wasn't as enjoyable to me personally but my friend who was with me is a cyclist and he loved it. It really comes down to personal preference. But again, I cannot emphasize this enough, be prepared to bike up a lot of hills. All in all, we probably did 9 miles in 3 hours including the stops for descriptions and pictures. Luckily, the guide was nice and patient I had to walk up the hills, my knees couldn't take biking up them, weird, I know. Later the guide said we could have upgraded to electric bikes prior to the booking, I didn't see that as an option so if you want to save yourself some work, I would look into that! Also, just a heads up, cobblestone and bikes seats are not the most pleasant combo, your butt will probably be a bit sore for a few days! But, most of this isn't their fault. It really was a great tour, I just want to forewarn people
By far, this tour was my favorite activity in Prague. Jara was our tour guide and he was delightful. He was so knowledgable about the CZ history and landmarks. We enjoyed seeing all of the top spots in Prague in a short amount of time...and biking was the most efficient way to travel the city. We even stopped for a beer and had a lovely view of Prague! Thank you, Jara, for a perfect day!
I loved this. Touring by bike is an excellent way to see a city. The tour guides are super knowledgeable. I highly recommend this tour. We lucked out and got electric bikes. We didn't think we'd want them but YES they were super nice to get up the hills. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
This review is way late, but I just want to highlight how great these guys are. We had originally booked a bike tour with them, but on-arrival, it was raining and one of my friends was uncomfortable with handling the bikes. One guide brought out all these different types of bikes for us to try while they waited patiently for us to test out the bikes for over an hour and never lost their sense of humor. They took us all around Prague, answered all of our questions, and were just wonderful the whole time. I would book these guys in a heartbeat - best tour guides of our whole Europe trip.
