What people are saying about Krakow

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.

Very fun and educational guide. Guider was amazing, very insightful. He answered every question that we had asked him, even if they were out of topic. When we take price and quality into the considerstion it is 5/5. Recommend !

It was really magnificent! We had the tour with 5 Liverpoolers and that combo on a Segway with the great tour guide Arthur was phenomenal! I definitely recommend it and driving a Segway is easier than you think! :)

Great tour, Arthur knew his stuff about the history of Krakow. Great fun being on a Segway and felt very safe. Small group going on a Monday.
