Fantastic activity, I'd recommend to all, no matter if you've never paddleboarded before or are an experienced paddler. Sam was a great guide, he made the afternoon fun with challenges along the way and pointed out landmarks in the city on the tour. our group of 15 was of mixed ability, but all enjoyed it and were able to SUP by the end.

This was a very good value for the money. The boat was clean, the crew was friendly and provided good service. The audio commentary was interesting, and the drinks were good and were served quickly. The 50 minute tour left us plenty of time for other activities that evening. Highly recommend!

A great evening from beginning to the end. Picked up from hotel, short tour in minibus, which we enjoyed then taken to the boat, which was very modern. The food was delicious, the entertainment was brilliant, staff friendly. I would highly recommend. Great value for money.

It was a wonderful evening cruise on the Vltava through Prague. Food, service, the view of illuminated Prague on deck - everything was just magical.

A perfect amount of time and information. Very enjoyable.
