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!

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.

Mrs. Marzena turned out to be a great guide. We listened to her stories about the Wawel Castle and the Cathedral with great interest. A person with a calling. I would highly recommend.

Our guide was prompt in meeting us and very informative. Well worth taking the tour.

We had a great guide. She answered all of our questions and was very personable.
