What people are saying about Vltava River

At first I was unsure about going on a tour as I was in Prague on my own. Our guide was lovely. As we walked from our meeting point up to the castle. The guide was very knowledgeable & gave us lots of information about the history of different land marks. He didn’t walk too fast and made sure everybody was there before talking or walking off to the next point. We could ask questions at any point. Where the guide answered as best he could. I particularly found d the guide helpful as we stopped for lunch and we had the chance to talk to him asking him about things to do. He wrote the name of something I’d asked about on a piece of paper. He shared a few stories about the CZk traditions and family etc which were lovely to hear.

Really lovely tour. Very informative. The guide (Marcella) was very knowledgeable and friendly. The food had a wide selection and tasted very nice. The restaurant was on old town square which surprised us. River cruise pilot/guide was also very friendly and helpful. Would recommend

Wonderful time! Learned lots of history about Prague. The guide was very knowledgeable. Even with lunch running behind and boat tour too, she always made sure everyone was taken care of. She is very a sweet and kind lady. I will definitely recommend.

Our guide was amazing, very knowledgeable, friendly and has an obvious passion for the city.

Really great value, met some lovely people and saw all the highlights of Prague
