    I had already been to Wawel Castle once a few days ago, and my main goal was to have a guided visit to the cathedral I had missed. After meeting Christina, an English-speaking guide, at the hotel on the day, I found that the interior of the castle that I plan to visit in addition to the cathedral is already on the first floor plus the third floor, which is already visible. I immediately requested a change to the second floor, which I hadn't seen yet, but managed to manage it even though it was just before. The detailed explanation inside the cathedral was very helpful and impressive. Christina had a goodbye at the entrance on the second floor of the castle because a dedicated guide was on the tour of the castle. Thank you very much. I was impressed by Jagelon University which stopped by on the way to the castle.

    The trip was excellent. Joanna was waiting for me and a friend at the hotel ... she was ahead of time. She spoke interestingly, gave a good historical background, and presented many details. It was interesting for both foreigners and Polish women. Joanna's English was excellent.
