Full description

Cruise along the Vltava River to the Devil's Channel, enjoying views of Prague Castle and the Charles Bridge along the way. Admire the Grand Priory Mill, one of the most famous of Prague's preserved mills.

Make your way to the dock at Čech Bridge (Čechův most) in Prague and go to pier 5 to board your boat to the Devil's Channel (Čertovka). The Devil's Channel is said to have been named in the 19th century after a woman of devilish character. Originally built as a millrace, today it divides Malá Strana from Kampa Island. Explore the mysterious Devil's Channel up close, see medieval houses that seem to grow out of the water, and listen to the clatter of the mill wheel as in days gone by.

We went on the 8.15pm trip on 11 August. I’m mentioning the date because I don’t remember the name of our guide but he was excellent and made the trip what it was so please pass on my thanks to him. He spoke brilliant English and was both informative and funny.

It was a nice little boat tour along the usual route that almost everyone takes. The captain was very friendly and helpful and explained a few things about the sights in Czech and English. However, we didn't see anything that you can't reach on foot. All in all, a good change to relax and escape the hustle and bustle of the city, at least for a short time. The value for money is debatable.

Was a nice route, we got another (read more luxurious) boat because there were so many people, all the way top, The route is not terribly interesting, it's just back and forth but the view is fantastic and she also gave explanations every now and then what buildings we saw. I thought it was successful
