It was a good experience. The bus was available and on time. However, we didnt know they had another pick up point which coincidentally was just opposite our hotel. We had a bit of difficulty finding our way to the location. Novices using google maps! The bus was adequate. The boat was nice - not opulent, but nice. The food was sufficient, despite there being a few different groups on the boat. live music was well done a singer and a guitar. The views from the top deck was very nice, though it was freezing cold. Generally a nice experience, but not spectacular as one would have hoped.
Excellent trip. Good to see Prague from the river at night. Plentiful buffet meal. Musical duo a welcome addition. Perhaps an occasional location announcement would have been nice but we were accompanied by a very knowledgeable guide. Warm clothing recommended at this time of year if taking pictures from the open upper deck. Highly recommended.
The van that picked us up was old, dirty and late. The guide boarded the van about half way to the boat and matched the van. She attempted to describe sights we were going by but the van made so much noise we couldn't hear. When we got to the river we had to wait on the boat to arrive and when it did it was awful. Very dilapidated and dirty. The food was edible but poorly presented. The guide gave very little description of the sights and was grumpy when we asked about it. A really bad experience all around.
THIS IS A MUST FOR EVERY TRAVELER WHO VISITS PRAGUE! I could have cut the tour down to about 2 hours, but the fireworks at the end made the extra half hour very well worth it. The food wasn't the best I have ever had, but I was hungry and it had a selection that I was able to choose from and enjoyed.
Not their fault that the night we took this cruise rained. The staff closed all the windows and doors to the dinning room, there must have been 100 passengers inside this closed area. Extremely humid and suffocating. Big lines to get your meal, by the time my husband got to the line they had run out of ham. He had a couple of pieces of chicken. Eventually it stopped raining and the doors were opened for ventilation. We ate fast and went to the upstairs area for air. The only boat without a Cover in the upstairs area was ours! The River had a multitude of other Dinner River Cruises, all other ships that passed by us had some type of rain cover. All of the upstairs chairs and tables were soaked in rain! Since there were so many Dinner River Cruises, our ship ended up having to wait @ 45 minutes in a Lock. The Vltava River isn't like other rivers that we've traveled in, it was unusual because it has locks like the Panama Canal, where you wait your turn like a very long stop light. We decided to go downstairs and see what was available for dessert. We were too late for dessert too. There were crumbs only. It could have been a much better experience and use of our time if we had had a cover in the upstairs area. I tried getting paper napkins from the staff to dry our chairs, they didn't understand, or acted like they didn't understand. The staff was unfriendly, all they wanted was to finish this shift, so that they could get ready for the 2nd shift of customers later. A lot of us ended up trying to dry up our chairs with toilet paper, that didn't work very well. The views ended up affected first by the rain, and later by the sprinkling and dry chairs upstairs. Eating at a River Restaurant would have been less expensive and more enjoyable and with better views than we saw.
Overall, it was OK.
it was almost full, waited for a long time for food. night views was OK, organize was good.
I wanted to give 3 stars, but I gave 4, why?
when I entered the boat, there were singers there, I was hoping it would not be loud music... when the boat started moving, the singer started to sing, OH! my GOD!!!! I love her voice! it was jazz and she was more than great!!! I do not understand what she sang, but her voice touched me. She made my night. thank her, still miss her beautiful voice!
Prague was amazing at night. Dinner was good. Got shots as soon as we got to the boat. The only things was that there in the three hours we went up and down the same part of the river at least 3 times- once when there was still light and the other two when it was dark. The city did look beautiful and I guess it gave an opportunity to everyone to take pics on both sides of the river.
The cruise was so beautiful. The view of Prague from the river was spectacular. Our tour guide explained everything we were seeing from the river for she was born there and it was obvious she loved her country. Toward the end of the cruise the city became illuminated with lights which was beautiful.
The only downside was the food. It was not what our group enjoyed. The views made up for it though.
Everything went smooth and on time. Tour guide gave info when passing by certain sites which was a perfect mix of not feeling bothered but getting historical info one would want. Food was pretty good had different options salad bar / chicken and fish dishes along with other sides. Drinks are at your own expense but they do have a full bar and prices weren't too bad. overall a good experience.
