Very nice short and informative boat tour. The guide was very good and told us interesting stories from different time periods of Prague. I would recommend if you don't like big and traditional boat tours, especially if the weather is nice.

Super modern boat. Boat was electric so very quiet. Good drinks onboard at an alright price. Guide was in multiple languages (CZ, EN, DE, FR) idk if there was Italian aswell I don’t remember

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

Great experience, comfortable ride and decent food and drinks
