    The cruise starts under Charles Bridge. The decor of the pier is very pretty. You are served a drink as agreed and you will be entitled to an ice cream or a cake. The cruise itself is admittedly small in distance, but at least you have 45 minutes to enjoy the view of Charles Bridge, the castle and the heart of the city from all angles. The advantage also being that they are small boats, intimate and calm.

    A quick but very pleasant little tour. The ticket comes with a drink and a snack, which makes for a peaceful boat ride (smaller group than some of the other tours, maybe a max of 15-20 people) around the river. The audio guide points out some interesting history associated with the Charles Bridge, old town, River, lesser town, etc. Meanwhile it’s fun to explore the river and a small little canal as well. Boats leave every 15-20 mins so it’s easy to fit into your schedule.

    45 minute boat ride. There is enough time to see the beauty of the city in the central area. The boat is old style and well made, with the guide in several languages already on board. At the entrance they offer a drink (draft beer, coffee, water) and a sweet (ice cream stick or gingerbread) which are not bad, but not very good either. Overall, the experience is absolutely positive.
