We did the group sunset tour on 10/07/2022, and we had the tour guide Mike. We would definitely recommend the tour, such a fun way to see the city. Mike was a really good tour guide and made the whole experience enjoyable, and the facts and history about the city was really interesting.

Fantastic experience! Szymon is a great instructor - open, helpful and has a good way of transferring the necessary knowledge. Also funny! I was the only one that day so I paddled on a single kayak which I had never done before. As far as the tour goes, it was a fun route which included facts, stories, angry swans and a beautiful sunset. If you’re looking for a more active experience in the city then I highly recommend it!

We kayaked 6+km in light rain. It was good exercise and fun. Piotr was very patient and a gracious guide. I would do this tour again and would recommend this to anyone that is at least a little fit. You will have fun! There is a little shop near the kayak spot where you can buy cheap drinks and snacks too.
