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!

Really great tour, the captain told us all about the buildings and the history of Krakow, the boat was lovely with comfy seats, heaters and blankets. The only issue we found was the meeting point is a little confusing as it isnt on the river, we found the meeting point on the street before you go down to the actual river,

I watched as the guide drove his beautifully lit boat from a distance and docked it on the shore. The boat is well heated and the guide made sure I was comfortable. He played several informative clips about the city and it’s history. While explaining what he loves about this city.
