Fantastic trip. The trip required lots of walking to get to each building but the stories were so interesting. Well worth the money, would even be happy to pay more for it. The stories spoke about who lived in the buildings years and centuries ago, how they lived, crazy ways they dealt with things. Very interesting 1hr 30 mins. Guide Navia also spoke great english.

Our Guide Anya was amazing! So knowledgeable and entertaining, we could have easily walked around the city all night. I would recommend this to anyone, it’s definitely been one of the highlights of our trip. (Also, the recommendation for the Ukrainian cherry liqueur and the rose donuts…. Delicious!)

Fantastic. Creepy is the correct title. This isn't a ghost walk, it is a walk with some creepy tales at each stop. Perfect for an evening walk around Krakow. Really enjoyed it and the guide was fabulous, engaging and knowledgeable.

Informative and interesting insight into Krakow’s dark history. Guide was entertaining and it was great to learn more about the charming old town.

Easy to find, good length of tour, guide was great.
