We hadn't been to Prague before. The pre-tour days on our cruise gave us a good taste of the city. Our hotel was the Old Town Hilton, which was convenient for exploring the old town independently on our first afternoon/evening. However, it is used by many tours and so was filled with tour groups. Our walking tour of Prague began with a long (in duration due to traffic) bus ride to the palace sector. We enjoyed the walking tour of that area and back down over the Charles Bridge to Old Town.
