I don’t think it’s necessary to take a tour to Kutna Hora. You could easily rent a car for the day. Or check to see if there are buses that go from Prague to KH. Our daughter studied in Prague in 2003, and I think she took a bus to Kutna Hora the first time she went there. We rented a car when we were there.

If you feel more comfortable with a tour, you could ask your hotel to recommend a tour company or private guide.

I recommend do not take a tour in Kutna hora you will save at list 110 euro, all top places you can visit by own and if you want to know more info you can always ask audio guides in each place.

The symbol of Kutna Hora is the unique Gothic Cathedral of St. Barbara.
In this city, you’ll visit two unusual places: a bone church and a cemetery chapel (Ossuary) decorated with the bones of up to 40 000 people. Another must-see in Kutna Hora is the Wallachian Court with its exhibitions of minting coins and the Museum of Uncovering of the Mysterious Faces in its cellars, where you’ll get to know criminals, witches, heretics, judges, and executioners.

For four people the best will be to book private transportation, I recommend to check this web, my few friends use them and they loved.
Or you can go by train but in this case, you need to be ready for lots of walking from the station to Bone Church and then from Bone Church to Kutna Hora city center and St. Barbara Cathedral.

It was easy to take the train. The Bone Chapel as I recall is a very short walk from the station. They had a shuttle running back then from the chapel into the town. It can easily be done if you choose to go on your own and doesn’t take a long day. Have fun and safe travels.

I believe we arrived from Prague at the Kutna Hora Sedlec station. It's about a 10 minute walk to the Bone Church/Ossuary from that station but you will first pass another church - Church of the Assumption of Our Lady at Sedlec. It's not very large but has interesting architecture. We were handed an English brochure and walked around inside for maybe 20 or 30 minutes. We were prettty much the only ones there. I remember walking up some stairs to an upper level then more stairs up into the rafters of the building where there is wooden walkway that runs much of the length of the roof.

Outside the Bone Church there was a shuttle van we used to get to Barbara's Church. We had to wait for maybe 10 or 15 minutes for the van to fill up before we left.

Inside the Ossuary it took longer than expected to get decent photos as we had to wait for a young lady to finish preening and posing for her selfies in front of the Bone arrangements. Odd.
