This activity is the perfect way to relax and just enjoy the scenery. The boat offers several seating areas, including rooftop seating. There is no tour guide, but also not a lot to say about the places you pass (beaches on either side, people fishing in the river, restaurant and bar boats, various buildings). Before boarding you can buy drinks (including alcohol) at the bar on the Atalanta which you can also bring on the cruise.

Easy to find location, we had a lovely sunny day for late September, but not very warm, Andrew our host gave us blankets and it was really comfortable. It was really nice to travel along the river and the views were stunning. Andrew was lovely and chatty with good English and told stories as we went along. We really enjoyed the trip. It was also very good value. Would highly recommend it.

Cool thing. Mr. Andrzej talks about Warsaw in a relaxed way. Elegant views :) Greetings from Toruń!
