This was excellent value for €40 for the two of us to cruise down River Vltava for 2 and half hours in a very comfortable covered (in glass) boat with very friendly staff. All tables by the window with the amazing views of Prague along the river and waiter service from a glass of bubbles to amazing coffee. We took the 3p.m. tour which was perfect for the sunset time.

Vitava River sightseeing Cruise is very worth it to go! Highly recommended. The boat is very clean & the crews are very accommodating, professional, friendly and polite at the same time. We enjoy this sightseeing & amazing views of Prague with this boat ride, and by this boat serving wine and beers on board is a plus. By the way, wine/beers/snacks something that you have you pay extra. However, the money spent is worth it.

The ship was beautifully kept and the 2 hour cruise was very relaxing. We enjoyed drinks onboard which were served at our table and paid our tab near the end of the cruise. We had a table for 2 by the windows and had a great view of the city from our seats. We would definitely recommend this trip if you have a spare few hours in Prague.
