Guide Introduction

The introduction (c20 mins) by the guide was great, much better than just picking up the tickets, learnt about the history and he gave advice as to what to do.

Great site to walk around but you need to be informed that you don't go in the ticket office with this offer you have to look for the guide with the blue and white umbrella he gives you your tickets

Great service

We came earlier than we had booked our tickets, but the service was great. We could only get cheaper tickets than we had booked, but we were more than compensated for that inconvenience although it was our fault that we arrived earlier. Thank you.

Buy ticket on the door in February!
Amanda_C
, Feb 2020
The four stars are for the castle itself, which is spectacular and definitely worth visiting. However, it was not necessary to purchase advance tickets in this way at the time of year we visited (February). Having bought the ticket through Viator, we were restricted to the time they allocated to us, when we could have just bought a ticket to the castle on the door with minimal queueing. As it was, we arrived early (as per the advice given on the ticket) and had to wait in the cold until we could collect our ticket. It actually got busier in the time we were waiting for the representative to be there with our ticket, which was frustrating as we were ready and waiting to go in and were unable to. Possibly buying a ticket in this way is advisable at other times of the year, but in February it is unnecessary and frustrating.

no waiting

this process does save time.when there are long lines for tickets. and you are assisted to enter st. Vitus by your ticket holder. But please don't call him a guide but a facilitator since this terminology is misleading.

Tickets alors twice the normal price
Marc_E

Bought thèse tickets to cut the at the ticket booth except that there was no queue. Tickets cost us well almost twice the normal price and the few explanations we received were not really helpful.
icon Response from Host , Nov 2019
Thank you for your feedback. We are sorry that you were disappointed and that you did not like our services. We are sorry that there was no line to skip. Usually, there are huge lines at Prague Castle and it is a really rare moment when there is no line. In that case, I agree that the skip the line ticket is not much different from a normal ticket. But we hope you had a great time in Prague anyway. Sincerely, Your team of Get Prague Guide

Fake
Shehnaz1993
, Sep 2019
Its fake.We bought our tickets online and the day we visited the Prague castle the guide was no where to be found.We wasted more than an hour.When we went to the ticket counter and asked,the person told that these tickets are from a private seller and not valid.We had to buy new tickets again. We we reported we only got a refund of half the amount. Please don’t get them and waste your time instead just go there and get the tickets directly from the ticket counter.

What skip the line?

There was no skip the line option as advertised - suggest this offering gets a new description. The directions for the meeting point was not clear and precise.

Karen S
, Sep 2018
We didn't use this ticket. If you do the bus tour you see the whole area, changing of the guard, etc. We didn't go back for the independent castle segment. And you have to be there at a certain time - only 15 minutes leeway - to exchange the voucher for a ticket. Seemed unnecessary to us.

Elizabeth_E

Prague castle is a must see attraction. You have to meet a representative there to claim your voucher/ticket and it seemed like you could of easily missed the person as its a busy court yard. It would be better to have a print out voucher that you hand in at the main entrance.

Scott M
, Apr 2018
It was great and the castle is something that you cannot miss. It really is the highpoint of Prague. I would also recommend fast passing literally anything you do in Europe. we saved 4 hours at the Paris catacombs and the Eiffell Tower. Back to Prague, just a wonderful safe, friendly walkable town and would highly recommend going if you are considering.

This was a terrible waste of time and money! I couldn't find my 'guide' who was supposed to meet me at the castle. When I arrived there were absolutely no queues anyway. I wouldn't bother with this again!

Jacqueline L
, Jan 2018
Im not convinced you really need this ticket, we arrived 20mins prior to the meeting time as was instructed and had to wait the full 20 mins until our guide arrived. He then proceeded to tell us where to go etc but spent far far to much time on this. We didnt really learn anything we didnt know or that the map on our ticket did not show therefore the time wasted could have been used to forget about skipping the line but just going and buy our own tickets, we also had a lengthy wait to get into the cathedral so the ticket didnt let us skip any lines except the actual entrance ticket. I would just go and buy your tickets at the gate.
