What people are saying about Vltava River

This is definitely worth it. We had booked the window seats and had a nice view of the entire river. We could go out to the open deck when we wanted an even better view. The food was nice and the ambiance made it a very nice evening. The live music singers and players were superb too. Very much recommended.

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.

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

非常舒適慢活還有現場音樂陪伴,基本的布拉格經典建築都一覽無疑,如果是短期旅遊可以當最後的完美結尾,唯一小小的缺點是飲品需要額外付費但這樣的風景不搭配美酒太可惜了。

Amazing river cruise, had a great time with family.
