Tour guide Tom was beyond brilliant. His detail and information was amazing! Such a clever man! It was just me and my girlfriend on the tour which was a little bit more special and personal. Riding around such a beautiful city being told in so much detail about the history is 100% worth it.

Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. Gave me lots of information and recommendations. Got lucky and was the only one in the tour. Helped me begin my stay in Krakow in a fantastic way. Definitely recommend.

Traveling with 11 and 14 year olds, this was a great way to get the kids to enjoy sightseeing and the city's history. The game took us to places we otherwise would have missed.

We had a great guide. She answered all of our questions and was very personable.

Very informative, interesting experience, lots of fun!
