If you'd like to enjoy the tour from start to finish head along to the City Sightseeing Prague ticket office at the Grévin Museum (now Chocotopia) Celetná 15, 110 00 Staré Město. Staff will exchange your pre-paid voucher for 48-hour bus and boat tour tickets. If you choose to do the bus tour first then you can either start with the red, purple or blue route.
The first two begin with a short walk led by a member of the City Sightseeing staff. This is necessary as large vehicles aren't allowed in narrower parts of the Old Town. They'll take you on an easterly path towards stop 1, (Na Florenci Street). Along the way you'll see the Church of Our Lady before Týn, Grévin Praha, the Municipal Concert House and more. If you choose the purple route you'll be guided to the bus stop near Jindřišská Tower.
Once aboard the buses you'll have complete freedom to come and go as often you please between other locations along the route. Explore key attractions such as Prague Castle, Strahov Monastery and Kampa Island.
