Prague Night Tour and River Vltava Dinner Cruise

Prague, Czech Republic

My Rating
4 star rating: Recommended

My Review
This trip is definitely worth doing. The meeting point was easy to find although it was only through checking out its location earlier the same day that we learned that the minibus to the boat left at 6:30 p.m., not 6:40! Our guide was new and seemed to struggle to speak English clearly, but she more than compensated for this by offering many anecdotal stories about Prague and the Czech way of life as our evening progressed. Prague by night is a super sight, but we only traveled about a mile up and down the river due to the position of the weirs and the bridges. After the boat circled for the third time, my partner and I realized what was happening and were a little disappointed that we couldn't go further along the river! The hot and cold buffet was well prepared and catered for many tastes. Guests were permitted to return to the buffet as many times as they wished throughout the cruise. The wine we drank with our meal was reasonably priced and the service was good. A jazz band accompanied our trip which created a holiday atmosphere and the trumpet player obliged by playing 'Happy Birthday' to my partner for his 'special birthday!' The evening concluded with a short tour of Prague by minibus which was excellent before we were returned to our hotel. I would wholeheartedly recommend this trip. Thank you!

My Review
Hertie's is a great meeting place because it's so central. I went on the trip with my fifteen year old son and it was fantastic! The coach was very comfortable and our guide was friendly and yet informative. Salzburg was a magical place and we had plenty of time there before moving on to Lake Wolgangsee. We managed to hire a little motor boat for half an hour while others waited for the ferry to cross the lake. Songs from the Sound of Music were playing in the background on the crossing and the sun shone, it was 28 degrees Celcius all day!

The return journey to Munich was a bit slow due to holiday traffic but we arrived back in good time to enjoy an evening meal in the city centre. Our guiude kept all 70 guests on the trip amused with her anecdotal stories and we learned loads about the German way of life, historical myths handed down through the ages. This was my first Viator trip and I was very impressed by the slick operation and friendly attitude of the whole day. Thank you. I would highly recommend this trip and am looking forward to booking another one soon. Superb value for money!
