Pleasant river cruise, where you can see most of the city’s famous points and learn a bit about it’s history. Could have been a bigger circle not just around Charles Bridge and Kampa. But overall totally worth the money!

We extremely enjoyed our tour and our tour guide, Sebastian. The weather was perfect for our ride plus instructions meticulously done. He assisted us with the photos and explained the history behind every site.

Decided to try it out on my last day in the city and it was a great way to finish it off. Weather was incredible and Sebastian the guide was very nice and explained everything to us in a very informative way.
