What people are saying about Vistula River

Great fun! The boat is an ordinary wooden river - it adds coziness and there is no feeling of a commercial trip. There are chairs, blankets, coffee or tea on the boat. There are open and closed parts of the boat, you can choose where it is more convenient. Very nice and pleasant atmosphere. I highly recommend it. Everyone was satisfied. Now for trips along the Vistula only here

Highly recommended! The cruising tour takes around ~50 mins and the view was gold. Blanket, pillows are provided so that we were able to enjoy staying at the front and on the top of the boat with a million dollors view of Vistula river.
