We really enjoyed our dinner cruise which was really well organised and a great way to see the sights of Prague from the river. The lovely lady who conducted the mini-bus tour was also very informative and obviously passionate about her architecture and the history of the Czech Republic.

My wife and I had an enjoyable evening on this cruise. Not only did we enjoy the cruise but we also had a drive through city tour of Prague old town. On the cruise we had a well prepared dinner along with great music. Thank you!!!

A perfect blend of bus, walk, and boat trip. Just long enough spent at all the sites and sufficient information to spark your interest.

The guide guided us through Prague in a very informative manner and gave good tips for various matters (e.g. the best exchange office).

Sophie is very entertaining and friendly. She has a lot of patience waiting for us taking photos .
