The river cruise was the highlight of our five day city break in Prague. A not to be missed experience. Every element was first class, the ambience, the staff, the food and the music. Highly recommended.

My friends and I booked this boat trip for our final evening in Prague. It was a lovely way to experience the city and end our trip.

The ambience of the cruise was something extraordinary. The food and the music made our evening a worthwhile experience.

Great experience, comfortable ride and decent food and drinks
