Prague Highlights Bike Tour with Old Town, Vltava River and Wenceslas Square
Continue to the river’s western side, making your way to Kampa Park, where you’ll cruise through to see the famous baby statues by Czech artist David Cerný, whose work tends to be very unique and sometimes hilariously bizarre. You’ll also enjoy a great view of the Charles Bridge, whose 650-plus-year history you'll learn about from your guide.
Next pedal to the John Lennon wall, a collection of street art that became representative of protest against communism in the ‘80s, before riding past the Kafka Museum, outside of which you’ll see another piece of interesting work by Cerný.
Head back across the river to explore the old Jewish quarter, where you’ll see a few very old sites, including the Old Jewish Cemetery, which was in use from the 15th century, and the Old New Synagogue, the oldest active synagogue in Europe. Then make your way to Old Town Square to see one of Prague’s most famous attractions – the Astronomical Clock. The square is also home many churches, including the Church of Our Lady Before Týn, and other historical sites, which you’ll hear about from your guide.
From here, wind your way past the medieval buildings of Old Town to the Powder Tower, the Gothic city gate that dates back to the 1400s, and then pedal to the Estates Theatre, where Mozart premiered his opera Don Giovanni in the 1780s.
Your last stop before ending your tour where you started is Wenceslas Square, one of the city’s main squares and the historical center of much of Prague’s change over the last century, including the Czech Uprising and the Velvet Revolution.

FAVORITE way to see a city - this was no exception! We loved our tour guide, the tour and every stop along the way... must do, best way to see Prague!
This was absolutely the best way to see Prague. Biking was easy albeit one hill makes you sweat a little. Our guide was awesome, a native American, he has studied earnestly to know almost any important fact about this lovely city. It was a long day but, we came away with a great sense of Prague as well as a day of enjoyable exercise. Please ask for Greg, he was down to earth and well learned!
We had a great guide in Sean, this non nonsense Scotsman made Our Prague trip extra special, he extended the tour and had the most entertaining stories. Remember to TIP!
Our bike trip was a dream. We had an excellent guide - Sean Garrity- who made Prague come to life. He shared so many aspects of Prague's history. I am not super fit and yet I managed - even if I had to push the bike for some of the distances! He was a patient and humourous guide and the whole experience was fabulous! A definite MUST!
We were able to visit everything on this tour of Prague and were lead by the roguish Scot, Sean for an alternative insight into this city with a dark history. If you are taking the six hour tour, be prepared to take snacks along with you as even though we stopped at a beer garden for a drink, there was no time allocated for lunch. Enjoyable and the east way to experience any city is on a bike.
