Really enjoyed this. The music was brilliant and entertaining and there was a good choice of food. I would have liked it more if it were longer...I would have enjoyed a bit more time to relax listening to the music or looking out at the water and sights with a drink.

Dinner was good. Hosts should announce that the food gets replenished so there isn’t a mad rush and people shoving. The way they organised everyone at the ticket booth to the river (10min walk) was odd and disorganised. There should be a clearer system. First 30 people leave 730, next 30 people leave 740 etc etc. This may also minimise rushing to get “a good seat”. It was difficult to take photos of the view whilst at dinner because of the glare of all the inside lights. A few recommendations: turn the lights down. Sit people with others from their own country to make the experience more enjoyable.

Met up at one location and then had to walk 10 mins to the actual pub. During the busy Christmas market in Prague. At the Pub it was a tad hectic with everyone trying to push into the pub and spent a further 10 minutes just trying to get in. Once in the night was lovely. There was enough to drink and the food was delicious. The entertainment was a local traditional band and belly dancers. A great start to the trip!
