The whole experience went well apart from my ticket not scanning but, this was sorted out quickly. The tower is a great way to see the beautiful city of Prague, a fabulous view. The mirror maze was good and the mirrors at the end were hilarious.

it was an amazing experience. 3 hours of boat tour through beautiful Prague, the buffet was delicious and at the beginning the roof was open and the atmosphere was magical. ✨

Great view of Prague from the water. A quick trip on the boat. I recommend the early tour while it is still daylight and checkin early so you can get a good seat.

Well organised - WiFi was hard to access - so could not access the English guide. The views were astonishing though and service was excellent

Great place to visit. You pay extra to take the lift which we didn't know, not much but no card payments
