A lovely hour cruising on the river. We arrived a little early as we were unsure as to the meeting point as the email wasn't fully clear. After walking along the river and asking someone we managed to find our boat. Our trip was originally on a smaller boat for English tourists but we were offered the paddle steamer boat on the German tour which we accepted. Although we didn't have the commentary, it was still a lovely trip as we went one way down the river then turned around and back down the other way passing some lovely bridges. The boat was very comfortable with plenty of seating both inside and out.

This was a nice, short boat trip. We went during sunset, which contributed a lot to the enjoyment of the trip. The sound system is very soft so you can't really hear the narration during the tour. There also isn't a bar on board, so make sure to get there a little early to order a drink at the bar next door for your journey. If you'd like to sit on a boat and have a chill float down the river, then this is the tour for you. If you'd like a more informative boat trip, then I don't recommend this boat trip.

It was good this little boat trip .. there were only 2 of us so we were able to take advantage of the good weather to observe the city of Krakow under the sun .. we had lunch before take off right next to the port ... the only negative point is that the explanations were in English ... And we start only French ...
