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.

A great attraction. The friendly Captain tells you interesting facts about Warsaw during the cruise, which makes the time very pleasant. Following the instructions, we went to the new playground for children in Łazienki Królewskie. There are many attractions for children on the square.
