We booked a 6pm slot & were the only ones on board. Lovely meander down the river, looking at a different perspective of the city. Had difficulty with hearing the recorded commentary though unfortunately.

Very pleasant walk on the Vistula. Departure at 6 p.m., we were only 2, so a real romantic stroll. Very nice and discreet driver. A very good moment.

Beautiful boat trip through a beautiful city! With interesting information in English. Only cushions would make the trip even more comfortable.
