    We were met early by our guide Maciej and he promptly commenced our tour of the Cathedral and Castle. He was very thorough and knowledgable in all their history, as well as explaining the history of Poland. He gave so much information but also gave lots of time to answer our questions. He went beyond the allocated tour time and also helped us seek a tour of the Jewish Quarter. So pleased we booked this tour - it was particularly nice that it was only for our group of 4 as we were able to move smoothly through the tour without getting separated within the crowds who were also visiting. Would certainly would use again.
