How is Prague for taking a taxi?
In general, taxis don’t have the greatest reputation in Prague due to dishonest drivers overcharging their passengers. The city has been trying to fight this problem by installing taxi stands and performing spot checks. The situation has improved, but it’s best to be careful by using an established and reputable company like AAA RadioTaxi, Tick Tack or CityTaxi. They are not overpriced and the operators speak English. Call 14014 for AAA RadioTaxi or +420 721 300 300 for Tick Tack.
