Philip was our guide and I couldn't give him a more glowing review if I tried. he was so kind, informative and insightful. the tour was brilliant and a great way to see Krakow if you don't have a lot of time or don't fancy walking long distances. you visit essentially all of the sights you'd want to see outside of the main squre/Old Town. you learn a lot particularly about the experience of the Jews during WW2. Philip even offered to drop us back to different parts of the city to help with our next sight seeing adventure of the day. would highly recommend the tour.

💯 a must if you are in Krakow. You learn a lot about the history of the city and our tour guide was very informative. Our trip lasted longer than expected too so try not to book anything time sensitive after it.

Amazing experience, takes you round a lot of the places you wish to visit in an hour and half. Highly recommend and very interesting

Just what we needed to do very informative as you can look at a lot of things but not know what your looking at

Great tour, gave us a good insight into Kraków’s history. Our driver was also very knowledgeable and helpful.
