We went on the first day in Krakow and it was a great way to get a feel for the area. There was only four of us on the tour so it felt quite personal compared to other tours I've been on with large groups. The tour guide knew his facts and we stopped frequently to look at artitecture, statues, bridges and places of historical interest. He told us both historical facts aswell as local legends and tales which gave an great feel for the area and its history. Overall great experience, would recommend.

Our guide was absolutely fantastic. He gave us a good insight into a part of the history of Poland and in particular the history of Kraków, also in terms of legends. He also shared his personal background which added to our understanding. Big kudos to the guide. We recommend starting a stay in Kraków with such a guided tour.

Our tour guide was Slavek. He was very clear, easily understood and full of knowledge. The tour is very great at showing you where to plan the rest of your trip so make sure to go at the beginning of your stay. I didn’t realise the tour was free when booking but it was still worth every penny.

Great tour really informative and the guide was quite entertaining. The group was really big but that didn’t impact our tour and we were happy to see lots of sites we weren’t expecting to cover

BART was a fantastic guide, very passionate & knowledgeable.
