Overall rating

4.0 / 5

based on 1 reviews

Our guide Konrad was very pleasant and engaging. Very knowledgeable as well. Our tour started out in the pouring rain, so the first few minutes in the Jewish quarter we’re from the van. We were able to walk about when the rain stopped. Konrad offered a place to buy a rain poncho or umbrella if we needed one. We got separated from the group for a time and he didn't seem annoyed with us at all (although we were rather embarrassed!).

Nice tour. Marianna was very nice and knowledgeable. Wish the tour of the castle was longer more detailed. Also if the tour of the underground of the cathedral was included that would be great. We had to go back to see it

This tour was the most better time we've spent in Krakow. Although we've made it on the last day of our stay, it was for sure the best way to put together all the views and ideas we ha been getting on the previous 4 days

Great Value

A very enjoyable city tour of Krakow. Our tour guide Konrad was fantastic, very knowledgeable and friendly with a great sense of humour. The Wawel Castle is a great attraction, very impressive and well worth a visit.

Outstanding tour. Our guide did a great job giving us a detailed historical overview of the city and the castle. Learned a lot!
