You should not miss this walk along the Vistula River, and especially see it at night. With the lighting of the castle. The only problem is that we requested the trip in Spanish and it was in Polish and English.

Meet and greet was excellent and the river cruise itself was very informative and the captain was very friendly

Enjoyable, relaxing cruise on the Vistula enjoying a glass of wine, commentary and lovely views.

Very informative tour with great scenery! Would definitely recommend people to do this tour

It was a very easy process and the boat journey was so peaceful and would recommend it
