We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Guide was very knowledgeable and passionate. Gave me lots of information and recommendations. Got lucky and was the only one in the tour. Helped me begin my stay in Krakow in a fantastic way. Definitely recommend.
