This was a nice relaxing ride down the river. We went down the river (in both directions) much further than expected, so it was nice to see just outside the main tourist area. The description mentions an online map and audio tour, but we did not receive any info about that. The paper maps/info guides were also difficult to find. You have to go looking for them yourself (they were not easily seen by the entrance or mentioned by the crew). The map did have great info and was easy to follow on your own, though!

No sightseeing information via loudspeaker :) Just the thing for me. Just cruise back and forth on the Vltava in peace and quiet, with a few cold drinks. It was pleasant and uncomplicated! Modern ships of the company Prague Boats. It's a good choice for those who like it. I would also like to point out the dinner on the ship and suggest it as a possible activity. It must be great to admire Prague in all its beauty in the evening hours. Gladly again!

The ship is big, beautiful and clean. You can see something through the large windows even when it rains. There are drinks, the prices are high but not outrageously soft drinks €2.8 beer €0.33. 3€. Above is an open terrace that is freely accessible. You can smoke there. We only found it a pity that there was no information about where you were. There was only a printed guide of 3-4 sentences. So you always had to look for where which building is. Overall a nice ride, also fits wonderfully with children.
