    Perfect Way To Start A Trip To The City
    , Nov 2019
    Can think of no better way to begin a visit to the cultural capital of Poland, Krakow. This tour not only familiarized us with the sites and streets of this impressive historical city, but it gave us a strong sense of familiarity with the city's ebb and flow quickly. Our entire visit, we relied on what we learned this tour. Our guide, Bartosz was an expert in the religious history of the city, telling tales of murder and intrigue that led to the city's infinite numbers of churches. He shared his knowledge of the church's place in local culture. He told us of the rich history of the Wawel Castle and how the attached church out of 4 distinct architectural styles. He explained the breakdowns of what we were seeing and why almost every church was Catholic. We heard stories of dragons and fire, of trumpeters and salutes. He explained the city's 3 districts as we meandered all around Old Town. Our guide made sure we understood hidden elements of the city and some of the best views around. Additionally, he was very accommodating - always checking in with the pace, asking if we needed to sit, or if we were interested in running off to a hidden university square, took our pictures everywhere and waited as I snapped more. He had tips for things to go back and see and was interested in our adventures. We would recommend everyone start their tour this way. Of all the places we visited in Poland, we felt most comfortable here wandering around and attribute that to the excellent walking tour we did when we arrived.
    Exactly what we wanted.

    Nice tour. Took us around Krakow and we saw the sights from a van instead of walking. Then we entered the main square and toured the St Mary's church. Very Informative. Would recommend it.

    My girlfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed this tour which gave us the chance to see the city's most famous places as well as a number of hidden gems. Our tour guide was knowledgeable, friendly and always willing to take photos of us and answer our questions. It's hard to pick out one highlight - there are so many! A fantastic city. I would recommend Krakow to anyone.

    Enjoyed the tour. Learned a lot about Krakow but the guide was too focused on the Jewish history of the area. Would have preferred a more well rounded historical based overview.
