I bought the "short tour" ticket, and frankly it was a waste of money (and I expect the long tour would be even more so). The Old Royal Palace is just a few empty stone rooms, the Basilica is not particularly impressive when you're seeing them in every city, and the mini-houses of "Golden Lane" are really just tiny shops. The most impressive part was the cathedral, which you can get into for free anyway.
But it was all interesting & kept me entertained. I went up the tower of the cathedral, which has a seriously narrow & tight spiral staircase with people trying to go up & down at the same time... awkward. But there were nice views across Prague from the top.
There was more wandering through the pretty streets & taking photos of beautiful buildings, and then in the evening we sat around chatting in the hostel bar. Really it was kind of a nice chilled day (literally & figuratively).
