Amazing way to start my vacation in Prague! If you book the two hour tour, you don’t need to wait at the kiosk. You can just go straight to your pier. I booked the 3 pm tour and enjoyed seeing Prague at sunset!

Marcela, our guide, was great. Kept things moving at an excellent pace. Not too fast but not too slow. She was very informative with a good mix of humour and info. I’d highly recommend her.

Great tour with a guide who really seemed to enjoy doing what she does and gives some very fun insights during the tour.

good service, lots of languages on the loud speaker too, great value for money

Super amazing experience! The staffs are friendly and helpful!
