This is a must see and do tour. Our guide was brilliant - very knowledgeable and funny. The time went really quickly and I would go back again if I ever get the chance. It is important to be able to walk down a lot of steps and then you are on your feet for a couple of hours. but it is very worthwhile.

This is a fantastic trip and our guide was great and very witty. The Chapel is beautiful and worth the 800 steps to get to it. May not be suitable for those with walking difficulties or young children although there is a lift which is used for weddings and it would be worth asking about this as it is a trip not to be missed.

Nice trip, not too far from Kraków (about 20 minutes). We got picked up at 09.30 and was back in Kraków 13.30 so we still had a lot of the day to do other things which was nice.
