We found these little boats a charming way of viewing the Charles Bridge area; We were given good coffee/beer/biscuits while we waited aboard in the lovely wooden 'traditional' interior heated with a mini wood burner. (The boats were actually designed by the company owner using historical river craft as inspiration) The staff were attentive and chatty. The little tour gave a fascinating duck-eye view of the river and little canal area while in between the commentary our 'captain' presented various interesting large photos of momentous historical events, such as the terrible floods.

Excellent and entertaining trip on the river in these old fashioned little wooden boats. The guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic, and had a supply of old pictures of the city to further enhance his tales of the history of Prague, as well as good recommendations to surrounding restaurants and museums. The trip offers another view of a beautiful city, as well as a chance to relax for an hour and let the world float by. The mulled wine, beer or coffee and gingerbread were a nice surprise. Well worth the money.

A great way to get different views of the Charles Bridge and city.

A drink and piece of ginger cake included in the price.

The "captain" knows his stuff and gives a great description of buildings and history.
A little pricey for the 45 min trip, but worthwhile.

It's a good thing to do AFTER you've traveled and walked around the city.
From the boat - you'll have another perspective on things that you've already seen from the "ground" side.
It took about one hour. The boarding was right under the Charles bridge (the side that closer to the center).

This was a very nice boat tour recommended to us by the hotel (Four Season’s). As you are approaching the Charles Bridge, you will most likely see a few people in a traditional white & blue sailor suit. They are selling tickets to the tour. When you get on the boat, everyone is offered water and ice cream or gingerbread. Go for the ice cream, the gingerbread was just average. Adults are also offered beer, it is a small 6 oz. cup and you are only allowed two. The tour allows you to see the river, go under the Charles Bridge and into a small neighborhood without having to deal with going thru the lock system. The guide is very knowledgeable and being in a small boat allows you take some great pictures of the bridge, surrounding buildings and with a good zoom lens the metronome that replaced the Lenin statue. This is a nice way to relax (it is about two hours) and still see some sights after spending most of the day walking the city.
