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.
