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.

💯 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

Very informative and interesting tour. Brilliant guide who really knew his stuff. Would definitely recommend.
