We were met by the guide at the designated spot and walked down to the boat that was waiting for us. We couldn't believe our luck when we were the only ones aboard so had the whole boat to ourselves. The captain was super knowledgeable and told us lots about the sites and the history of the city. Would definitely recommend, lovely and warm downstairs and beautiful upstairs, they provide blankets if you get chilly.

Great hour spent on the river. The captain was a great guide he pointed out all of the important landmarks and we could ask him lots of questions too. We went just as the sun was about to set which was lovely as the historic buildings were beginning to light up. Being a little more mature person I did struggle to climb aboard perhaps a small step may have helped other than that a fantastic and fun trip on a lovely boat, thank you, well worth the money.

Fantastic hosts and boat captain - enjoyed every second of seeing this part of krakow in a different way! Don’t let this cold time of year deter you from enjoying this experience - the lower part of the boat is closed deck and has blankets and cushions to keep you warm - and also a heater to help more. Would definitely recommend - thank you for a fun experience and all the best!
