A good way to see a different view of Prague. i have previously done the dinner cruise, but the daytime one gives you the chance to see much more as you cruise up and down the Vltava River. Great for photographers!

Seeing Prage at night from the river is like a fairy tale.... loved it.... nice food and drinks.
Overall an agreeable trip with just one exception - the extraordinarily long wait to go through a lock with no obvious traffic ahead.
An enjoyable trip up and down the river. We joined at Republic Square as directed, but simply got dropped off at the boat and left - no pick up was included, so we had to walk back into the centre. Buffet lunch was fine, plenty of choice. There were only about 30 people on the boat, so there was no rush or queuing. Only complaint was that the boat "idled" for quite a while, eeking out the time until its allotted finish - this is due, in part, to the need to get through the lock both ways - as it happened, we had no delays, hence the circling.
cruise was excellent all the food you could eat,going through locks was interesting
Definitely worth spending an afternoon on the river. Food good. Being able to sit at the top of the boat after eating is very refreshing and gives splendid views of bridges.
Trip on river lacked a guide to point out points of interest
Lunch buffet excellent but most of time was taken up eating the meal
Wonderful views along the river, good length of cruise. Food quality wasn't outstanding but as expected for buffet style.
The food was quite good and the boat was not crowded which made it more comfortable for everyone. For the price I think the coffee should at least be included even if the wine wasn't.
I booked this for my last day in Prague, having spent almost a week in the city. I used this as a time filler as my flight out was an evening one. The cruise takes you further up river than I had expected, through the lock systems on the Vltava. The food was average, (tinned vegetables) but you can get great photos from the open top deck after the buffet meal on the return visit. Not a way to see Prague on your first day, but a good way to get one last look.
We didn't enjoy this cruise, there was nothing much to see along the river and the meal was not as good as it could have been. Unfortunately the weather was not good that day either. We would not do this tour again.
Never understood why we had to meet in old town for a bus ride to the boat which would have been an easier walk than finding the kiosk near Powder Gate! When we arrived at the boat, we were totally confused as to where we were. I asked where we would meet the bus after the cruise and was told, very rudely by Vera the bus guide, that there was no bus ride back and that "it's not our responsibility to get you back". Fortunately we were able to figure it out after checking the landmarks and bridges. Crazy, this involved 4 couples, of course....we were all Americans! The cruise is just that, a cruise. No sightseeing guide, no commentary and at least 25 minutes out of the 2 hour cruise are spent going into and out of a lock where you can't see anything. The buffet lunch was nice, lots of hot and cold items to choose from....drinks are not included and, compared to how much you pay in Prague, are quite pricey. I would not recommend this tour.
