I returned last Friday from 5 days in Krakow ... I have literally walked the length and breath of this amazing City. I was lucky to visit Krakow in the quiet season (I purposely chose this time, I hate crowds) and so my Wawel Cathedral, Castle and Royal Route Tour was on a one to one basis. My guide Monika was very personable and also very knowledgeable about Krakow and it's history and also about the sites we were visiting. Monika also gave me a full run down of the Old Town history on our route to Wawel Cathedral. Something to be aware of though when visiting this site, is that in low season they do close early. I went back in the afternoon to visit the State Rooms of the Castle to view the Tapestries. I arrived at 2:45 and was told they had stopped selling tickets for the day.

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.

Our tour guide was so lovely and pleasant throughout the full tour, she was very informative and knew loads of information and details regarding all the places we visited throughout the tour. We were lucky enough to be the only customers on that tour so we had the full attention of the guide on what felt like a private tour. We had no idea about the history of Wawel Castle, so this was a great tour as we learned a great deal and we really recommend the tour for anyone who wishes to visit!

My guide Yola was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the castle grounds and its ancient roots and its time capsule nature in profiling the beginnings of Kraków. I learned from the tour how much the castle and the cathedral played an integral part for Krakow's, or indeed Poland's, history. Yola was kind enough to answer our questions from the group.
