Vltava River Cruise

Seeing Prague from a boat, while cruising the center of the peaceful Vltava River, looks even more charming and majestic. Without doubt, this is because of the incredible number of towers and cupolas looming from both banks. And how many towers can you actually see from the deck? You will have to count them for yourself. We will cruise straight through the central part of the capital, to the foot of the Charles Bridge and from here we can enjoy the majestic beauty of the surrounding monuments. We will take the water channel, called Little Venice, all the way to the tireless mill wheel. There we might be surprised by the presence of its fairy-tale guard, the Waterman, a mysterious character from Czech fairy-tales.
The Venice of Prague company is inspired by the past. Their boats are modern, yet authentic and charming replicas of older boats. Their interior equipment, brass helm and other features of formerly modern industry will take us back to the 19th century. The names of the individual boats were cleverly inspired by water flora and fauna, such as the Caltha, Sweet Flag or Water Spider.

Our agency doesn’t offer the two-hour cruises with food. The reason is less-than-satisfactory buffet meals and entry to a rather smoky area of locks where the waiting time can often be as long as twenty minutes.

We are most grateful for your expertise and can highly recommend you for other groups desiring a most competent and knowledgeable English-speaking guide.(Linda A. Graf, USA) * We also have just returned from a magical trip to Prague and having the use of Prague Arts Tour. Jana was an exceptional tour guide who made our trip to Prague all that more interesting and informative. After the tour we felt quite at home and we were able to explore the city with a firm understanding of the history of the city that we received from Jana. Prague Arts Tour and Jana are spot on. Thanks again Jana. (Margo and Guy from Canada) * Last September we toured the main cities of Central Europe with a bilingual group from Canada. During two weeks, Jana guided us through the different cities and buildings sharing with us her vast knowledge of art, history and daily life in her part of the world. We found her to be very professional at all times and eager to make sure everyone questions and worries were answered. She was flexible to the demands of the group and always tried to please everyone. She communicated clearly the daily activities in both languages and made us feel safe at all times. Jana's greatest asset is her love for her job and as a result she paints for you a picture of the beauty, opulence and the grandeur of these imperial cities. Her passion and professionalism made it all worthwhile. Thank you Jana. (Lise and Frank Loiocano; Canada)
