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.

The minibus was very punctual. The tour guide spoke good German and took great care of her guests. The food on board was very good and the service was fast and friendly. A very nice evening. Live music could be a little quieter for tables in close proximity.

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....
