What people are saying about Wawel Hill

It is highly recommended for travelers like us who are coming to Krakow for the first time. With direct pick-up at the hotel, it took just a few steps to get to the old town. And starting with the trumpeter, in honor of whom the 13 seconds is still played today in all four directions, this magnificent city was brought closer to us. We explored Krakow across all the streets and finally up to the Wawelburg. Just beautiful!

Second booking with this provider. Excellent service, small group sizes, very good guides spoke English and able to ask questions. You get training on use of Segway before hand and first part of your is open enough to practice and build your confidence in using the Segway. I would say this tour lasts round 2 hours.

This is a great way to explore Krakow and to learn more about its history. We got to see many of the main interests in the Jewish Quarter and our guide even made some suggestions about good restaurants to visit.

Great fun!! Really enjoyed riding the seaways, fantastic tour, with lots of little extra pieces of info we hadn't heard before, thankyou!!

Arthur is een goede tour guide! Vertelt op een fijne, makkelijke manier die voor iedereen te begrijpen is!
