Our guide was entertaining and informative. We had already done other "history" tours of the city and it was great to hear some folklore and stories behind the history. We saw some places in the old town that we would not of seen in a "conventional" city tour. The guide carried out the tour a good pace - which helped as it was a cold evening. As with all GYG tours we have undertaken the communication beforehand was excellent, timely and helpful.

Excellent and Elizabeth the guide was really funny and knowledgeable about the history of krakow and serial killers! Showing parts of the city too. It was raining which couldn’t be helped and it was still worth the walk around. Definitely something different to see and learn about the city. Would recommend.

My tour was really good! The guide was very friendly and his English was very good and at the same time simple that l could understand it, as my first language isn’t English. Krakow is a beautiful city and he made me really to get to know it!

We had an excellent time. Tomas was very entertaining. He shared some of the stories surrounding Kraków’s past with an enthusiastic knowledge. Highly recommended tour.
