      Lovely way to spend an hour
      Really interesting and relaxing way to spend an hour. Small, covered boat which we were thankful for as was very sunny. Guide spoke very good English.

      Prague boat trip.
      We opted for a smaller boat, rather than one of the huge ones, so we could go into some of the little channels off of the main river, which turned out to be very interesting. The boats Captain talked us through the various historical points in both Czech and English, and the trip was informative & enjoyable.

      Great way to see Prague
      This was a great way to see Prague, especially if you don’t have lots of time. This small boat is able to get into the small canals. Friendly captain (Martina?) and informative

      Good cruise- misleading meeting point info.
      Please update your meeting point information- it is quite misleading. We are given a google map point where to meet and it also says departing from pier 3. I went to the meeting point as show on Google maps and waited….. consequently I missed the cruise because I was supposed to go directly to the pier? I was put on another bigger boat which was fine but wasn’t what I’d booked and paid for.

      Very pleasant hour with a small group
      Took this tour in the middle of the day. Easy to book online, left on time, nice small group of people. The captain was pleasant and the commentary during the tour was good. Great sights and a nice trip down the canal. Would go again and would be nice if it was 30 minutes longer, maybe more time at the bridge perhaps.

      Very enjoyable
      What a great experience we always take a boat trip wherever we go and this was a little different as it was a smaller boat and we were able to access little side inlets as well as the main river. We went right up to a working water wheel , watched beavers on the riverbank as well as numerous famous sights . The boat had 12 people and this made for a very relaxed and enjoyable trip , with a very friendly captain/guide. Definitely worth doing and also very reasonably priced at 19 Euros each.

      Total rip off as the tour was only 45 min.
      The view was ok but they just try to sell you drinks and snacks and then after 46 it is done although they sell a one hour tour . The experience was ok but nothing special . Would not recommend

      We were lucky as we had a beautiful sunny day and we had a lovely time. There are tables and chairs on the top deck and waitress service for drinks and snacks which are sensibly priced. Some commentary provided.

      Great Captain and relaxing tour
      We visited on 09.06.2024 on the 15:15 Devils Canal cruise. Our Captain (I can’t remember his name but he is in photo!) was fantastic and funny. It was just my BBC Mum and I and most companies would cancel, but it was such a relaxing and informative ride.

      Great boat, excellent food and fantastic music.
      We absolutely loved this cruise. Food was good and live music was excellent. Elton John being sang while we were in the lock and the other boats next to us dancing joining in was great fun and added to the fun Atmosphere on our boat. Was a little worried due to some of the reviews however if you are looking for a relaxing romantic evening with live music cruising a beautiful city then go for it. We will definitely do this again when back in Prague.

      Fantastic river cruise - thoroughly recommended
      My wife and I decided to do this river cruise for my 60th Birthday, we went into it slightly skeptical and with our expectations possibly a little low, I guess to avoid disappointment. How wrong we were, from first boarding the boat it was well organized, tastefully decorated and we got a lovely window table on our own. The staff were superb, the views were amazing, in fact, absolutely nothing significant to complain about, even the drinks were reasonably priced and the food was pretty good for a buffet style dinner. Our Ukranian waiter Daniel was an absolute star and was the icing on the cake. We absolutely recommend this river cruise, I would recommend from my own perspective getting the higher priced packages if you want to avoid being seated with other people, the standard packages are better for large groups. Great evening, great job Prague Boats!

      Waste of time and money. Completely lacking experience.
      This tour was supposed to be 50-60 mins, it was closer to 25-30 mins. That was almost ok as the boat kept going in circles between two bridges without much of an explanation as to what we were seeing, any points of interest or any information whatsoever. It was a complete waste of time, short as it was, and money 24 euros pp. There are wayyyyyy better ways to spend that in Prague. This boat was a total letdown. Avoid!

    This is something I don’t normally do, but I feel so incensed by the way my wife and I have been treated by this company. It should be advertised as a pirate ship.
    Paid for a 2 hour tour up and down the river 980 czk
    Once on board the pirates set off, immediately after leaving the quayside came an announcement due to the lock being close we can only do the up river part of the tour but we will go round twice. I could have booked the tour for half the price.
    Once we got off we went to complain and seek some sort of compensation to which we where told sorry nothing they could do. Worst of all they where still selling the 2 hour cruise up and down the river knowing the lock was not working UTTER SCUM.

    Where do I start… first of all, we booked at the ticket office on a Monday and stood around for nearly an hour whilst they faffed around getting on and off the boat. Was finally ushered inside and told ‘sit anywhere,’ (thank you for the lovely customer service 🙄), to sit there for half an hour, order a very overpriced drink, which once we had conveniently paid for, was told the cruise was cancelled and to rebook.

    So I get up all excited the next day, prepared to see the sights of Prague on this amazing cruise…how wrong I was. You zoom down the river as a pace that can only be described as life threatening, nearly broke my neck trying to look back at the sights I was paying to see. Covered the length of the river in half an hour, halfway back to the dock the driver decided to take us on a beautiful detour… we span in a circle for no reason, only which I can assume was to make up the two hours considering we had done the whole trip in an hour up to this point.

    Do not recommend, I would have jumped off had the water been cleaner and swam back to shore.

    Would give zero stars if allowed.

    I work in tourism in Europe and am a well seasoned traveler that knows and despises a rip off. “Romantic river lunch cruise “ should have been call the “prison cruise “ my first red flag for this 2 hour river detention started with us being crammed into an airless dining hall with some women rambling away on a microphone… we then lined up to get prison food from the buffet- no water , all drinks one must pay for, and once you return to your table you have the others in line standing almost on top of you while you eat. You want to escape so you go up top and sit on the unmoving boat for another hour admiring others on the shore having a wonderful free and fun time. When you complain and say this really is not my idea of a good time can you at least give me a coffee so I don’t jump overboard the arrogant waiter says well “ this is Prague” and we will not give you a coffee. In many ways he was correct this is the poor state of tourism in Prague - tacky tourism overrunning the Beauty of this city and money grabbing happening at every turn. Rude staff, sick food, no drinks included and boat sat most of the time. They could’ve played some music and given a beer to keep us happy. So simple , so sad . Wish I could give zero star

    My boyfriend and I were excited to do this lunch cruise as we thought it’d be a great way to see the city, but we were disappointed. The food was of poor quality and the whole thing is overpriced in comparison to the city. There was no commentary on the city during the tour, so it was essentially lunch on a boat. The windows were dirty too. They do give you some free alcohol as a welcome gift, it wasn’t to my liking but it was a nice gesture. Overall I wouldn’t recommend.

    We had such a lovely time on this boat tour! The live music was great and the food was lovely and there was a wide selection, including vegetarian options. The staff were very helpful and understood and spoke English. There was an area outside to smoke and toilets on board. We really enjoyed this and I would definitely recommend to people of all ages.

    We spent 20 minutes waiting to enter the lock and 20 minutes in the lock itself. In other words the boat was not in motion most of the time. They do not narrate anything but instead play annoying 90s American music the entire time. So 80 minutes of the two hours we just sit still.

    Booked the 2 hour trip without lunch. Spent a lot of the time in the loch facing walls. Didn’t go as far up the river as we expected before turning around and heading back to Charles Bridge. Got back to the area we docked after about 1 hour 15 and then seemed to spend the rest of the time going around in circles near Charles Bridge. We didn’t realise there was a live singer until 20 minutes into the journey because we couldn’t hear anything. The drinks were very pricey. When you pay they ask for a 10% tip. I have been on a lot of boat trips and this was probably the worst yet which is a shame. You see most of what you see on the boat just by walking along Charles Bridge. There were also allocated seating for those that had food and didn’t. If you didn’t, you got stuck in the middle which was difficult to take photos of the views as you had to lean over people sat on the tables at the side.

    The boat was high quality and very clean. Staff professional. Bathrooms spotless and the route beautiful. The food was very disappointing, not appetizing at all, mostly heavy and fried and the salads limp and over- dressed. Our waiter boldly told up how much to tip.
    It would have been good to know that we had to get a paper ticket before waiting in line for the boat. We assumed the digital information on the app would be enough… so we wasted time waiting for the boat and had to then go and wait in another line to get the tickets and the go back and wait in the boat line.

    We booked our trip through Jet2 as there was an offer on. Arrived for our cruise on time and we're asked, along with another couple, to come aboard. We were encouraged to order food and drinks for the tour. These were not cheap. We waited and waited, then after our trip time, a member of staff was on the phone sounding stressed. Then came to us to say the trip was cancelled as not enough people showed up. I understand that they need to have enough people to run the trip, but they were really pushy about ordering for the trip, which they had already brought to us so couldn't have a refund. As we had booked through a third party, could not get a refund. We were offered to change to a shorter tour but had just missed that one so would have to wait for another hour of we wanted to do this. No apologies from the staff, just if we want to ask Jet2 for our money back. Really disappointing experience.

    We opted for the lunchtime 2 hour cruise. Easy to book, directions were fine (although we didn’t need to pick up tickets as advised in our confirmation - the online QR code we received allowed us on board).

    Initially I was disappointed not be sat in the glass ceiling area but in reality it didn’t make much difference to our experience.

    The buffet style lunch was delicious and plentiful and we couldn’t fault it.

    The service was good and the guy playing the accordion was really good and engaging with the audience.

    I could have stayed another hour and really enjoyed the trip. A nice way to see Prague from a different perspective.
