We had an unforgettable experience thanks to the very knowledgable lady city tour guide whose command of the English language and the history of Prague was exceptional. The 3 hour dinner cruise was blissful, very relaxing and included fantastic entertainment whilst cruising along the river Moldau. The dinner choice was versatile and offered an abundance of local dishes. Overall the timing, organisation and helpfulness of the individuals involved was very reassuring and contributed to a seamless experience. Thanks again to everyone involved David & Corinna We would highly recommend this trip.

It made for excitement and fun. We got to know the village with a lot of fun and learned a lot about the history. It's also great for young people because they don't get bored on a city tour and don't notice how much they walk. ☺️

The guide was responsive, it was a small group of 8 and it was a very enjoyable and stress free experience. The highlight was the boat trip, as many new and exciting things could be learned from the water (audio guide).

Punctual pick-up at the hotel. City tour in the minibus to the most important sights ok. Quite new ship, neat condition. Pleasant ride through the night with a great view of Prague. Delicious food....It was worth it....

We had a fantastic guide , who took his time to tell us all about Prague! ... nice boat trip with a snack and a beer! Excellent !!
