We had Sev as our guide who had also looked after us on a morning tour

Sev had taken our private tour in the morning, He escorted us using local knowledge to a short cruise I had booked & waited for us as he was escorting us on the afternoon tour. As I said previously he was without doubt the best tour guide I have ever had & if you are lucky enough to be guided by him you will be left feeling truly spoilt.

Excellent choice for a two-hour history walk around the old town quarters and the Wawel hill. A pleasant history expert with very good English explained the historical issues in an interesting way. As a hint I can tell that I offered this private tour as a birthday present to a relative keen on history and this was taken as a wonderful idea. A real success for our small group

Wspaniały czas w przepięknym mieście. Dwugodzinny spacer pod wspaniałą opieką pana Seweryna nasycił nas wrażeniami i wiedzą. Bardzo polecam indywidualną wycieczkę, zwiedzanie jeszcze nigdy nie było dla mnie tak przyjemne! Mimo, że rozpoczęliśmy wędrówkę dopiero przed 17 i już trochę km mieliśmy 'w nogach', dzięki przemiłej atmosferze i ciekawym opowieściom dwie godziny upłynęły nie wiem kiedy:) Mam nadzieję, że wkrótce uda się zaplanować kolejną wycieczkę do Krakowa.
