Featuring one of the city's finest hotels and the care of an expert guide, private driver & vehicle and the comfort of 24/7 support from the Kensington team, this is the finest way to explore Prague.
Situated on the River Vltava in central Bohemia, Prague has been the political, cultural, and economic center of the Czech state for over 1100 years. In 1989 Prague was witness to the Velvet Revolution, an uprising by the people and the imminent movement of Czechs towards a new western state. In 1993 the city became the capital of the new Czech Republic. Today it is an important cultural center of Europe once again.
Enjoy a tour of Prague Castle with your expert guide, the largest ancient castle in the world. Day trips to Kutna Hora mines and the Karlovy Vary thermal springs are fantastic highlights.
One of the great benefits of private touring is the freedom to explore the countryside at your own pace while directing your own driver and vehicle.
A transfer between the airport and your hotel with a private vehicle and driver is provided. For your added comfort, your English speaking Assistant will help you to check in and walk you through the welcome package documents.
A welcome package with a city map, train tickets (if relevant), and any other touristic information that we deem you may find useful will be waiting for you upon your arrival at your first hotel on your trip.
The Augustine (5*) may be the city’s newest ancient hotel and is located in the picturesque Malá Stranathe in the heart of Prague. It opened in 2009 after an extensive restoration and refurbishment and occupies seven buildings including a 13th century monastery and brewery that was once home to the friars of Saint Augustine. Striking in their elegant simplicity, the guest rooms reflect the hotel’s monastic history. Czech interior design is celebrated in the contemporary European furnishings and modern art throughout, and all rooms have views of the courtyards, chapel or Prague Castle. The Monastery Restaurant is a European brasserie-style setting that features local and seasonal flavors of the Czech Republic. Guests can sample St. Thomas beer, still brewed following an ancient and secret recipe. The property is conveniently located in Prague’s picturesque Malá Strana district.
Enjoy a full day city tour with your private guide and driver to the State Opera, the National Museum, Wenceslas Square, and Charles Square. Visit and walk around the Castle courtyards and see St. Vitus Cathedral. Continue along the Vltava to the Old Town, St. Nicholas Church, the Týn Cathedral and the Old Town Hall with its astronomical clock and apostles. Walk from the Powder Tower along the Royal Route to the Old Town Square, along Karlova Street to Charles Bridge and enjoy the view of Prague Castle. Your tour ends at Mala Strana (the Lesser Town).
Kutná Hora is an old mining town founded in the 13th century, which was once famous for its silver mines. To this day Kutná Hora has retained the character of a medieval city and rightly belongs to the most important UNESCO heritage sites in the Czech Republic. Start you tour with a visit to the St. Barbara Cathedral with its valuable murals. It is one of the most famous Gothic churches in central Europe and it is a UNESCO world heritage site. Continue to the Italian Court ( Vlasky Dvur) that originally was the seat of the Central Mint of Prague and former Royal Residence . Despite all transformations over the centuries the court is one of the most valuable monuments of Kutná Hora . Finish your trip with a visit to the unique Ossuary (The Bone Church). The beginning of its story date back to 1278, when the abbot of Sedlec monastery, returned from a visit to Palestine with a pocketful of soil and sprinkled it on the cemetery surrounding the Chapel of All Saints.This direct association with the holy land led to the graveyard becoming a sought after burial site among the aristocracy of Central Europe. At the time of the thirty years’ war in the 17th century, the number of burials outgrew the space available, the older remains began to be exhumed and stored in the chapel, and it’s estimated that the chapel now contains the bones of up to 40,000 people arranged by František Rint in 1870. Rint's work includes an enormous chandelier including every bone in the body, and a crucifix style arrangement near the main altar. Entrance fees to St´Barbaras Cathedral, Italian Court Mint and Ossuary are included.
The world famous spa city of Karlovy Vary lying in a picturesque, forested valley is famous for its 12 thermal springs. The individual springs differ from each other in their temperature and the composition of the water has not changed throughout the 650 years of treating. Start your tour with a visit to the glass exhibition at the famous Moser factory. Then, as you stroll through the city along the spa colonnades, you will have the chance to taste not only the healing thermal springs water, but also the delicious local wafers and the traditional herbal Becherovka liqueur as you visit the Becherovka Museum.
A transfer between the airport and the city or your hotel with a private vehicle and driver is provided.

"People do not know what they are missing by not going to Romania. The landscape: beautiful, clean, untouched. The people: People exceeded friendly! Super safe. Wherever we went, we received the reception of "Welcome, welcome! You are our guest", by everyone. Food & Drink: Everything had such incredible flavor! They use only the freshest ingredients and everything is organic. Every meal was a new, exciting experience to our palettes. Architecture: The beauty, intricacy, history. One cannot help but appreciate the abundance of castles, churches and buildings boasting such incredible architecture. Experience Romania sooner than later! You’ll be so glad you did! Once again, Kensington Tours, and special thank you to Claudia.

"Overall, our tour in Spain was very enjoyable, and well planned and executed. Our private tour of the Alhambra was excellent. Virginia, tour guide for royal palace ruins outside of Cordoba, was also excellent. In Seville, we went to the Flamenco Show/dinner, and the Flamenco was outstanding!"

"My husband and I took a 3 week vacation to southern Europe and North Africa and had a great time. All the guides were very knowledgeable and bend over backwards to accommodate us. The arrangement made by Kensington went off without a hitch. This is our second trip with Kensington (we went to Peru in 2009) and we will certainly book with them again."
