Nice quiet boat with option to sit inside or outside. You see all the main sights along the river, friendly staff that didn't mind you bringing your own drinks on board, reasonably priced choice of drinks available too. The only downside was nearly half the trip (1 hour) was spent queueing at and passing through the lock in both directions.

Very nice boat trip across the Vltava! Friendly and helpful staff. Unfortunately, information about the buildings and bridges to be stood is only provided on the boat by means of a flyer. You should keep that in mind when booking. Still a very entertaining excursion with a very special view of the city :)

A really clean and modern ship! But with waiters circulating around constantly you feel pressured to buy drinks and a little guilty for bringing your own drinks and snacks. Also, the wifi (for the web-based audio guide) is unusable It’s extremely slow. Otherwise it’s fine. The blankets they provide are a comfy touch.
