What people are saying about Vltava River

Beautifully clean boat. Very attentive staff. Plenty to eat and with a very varied choice there was something for everyone. Whether hot or cold or a mix of both you could visit the buffet as many times as you wanted. To finish off a great mix of puddings/cakes and cheese. Entertainment was included by an accordionist who sometimes burst into song as we were enjoying our delicious lunch. The only downside, which wasn’t their fault, was that we couldn’t travel the length of the River as was advertised. We were warned beforehand but didn’t feel the need to complain as we were leaving Prague that evening!

Amazing experience on an open glass boat cruise in Prague. It was my wife's birthday and we had a very special time on the cruise. There was something magical about having a drink on an open deck. Great wine is given as a welcome drink and the food was also very good, but drinks are an extra charge for a basic package (60 euros). It was absolutely worth it and my wife was thrilled. Everything was well organized. We recommend it. Cheers

What a fantastic evening. Amazing band, food constantly re-filled. Great quality food and allergens on the back of food labels. Beautiful views of Prague lit up. Would definitely recommend! Lovely chilled evening!

Excellent experience.. hassle free to book the tickets online. Nice ambience and adequate food spread. Cruise staffs are accommodative and polite.

Dinner was good and the views from the boat were excellent
