Beautiful castle that needs a lot of time if you want to see the whole thing.
bob_M

A 1.5 hour trip which will give you a tour of a small section of the castle. Our guide made that clear from the outset and when you see the size of the castle you'll soon understand why. A tour of the whole thing would easily take up a day we were told and I could believe it. Our section of the Royal Chambers and some of the armaments consumed our allocated time period with the subject descriptions delivered in detail. Our only small criticism was that our guide wasn't always easy to understand. A lovely lady but quietly spoken with her strong local accent proved challenging for us at times. However from what we could hear it was obvious she knew her subject well. That aside the castle is a stunning piece of architecture with a lot of history within its walls. A must visit if coming to Krakow.

Castle great but guide was less than average. Headsets should have been supplied. Made your much less enjoyable.

It was ok but not very informative. The guide did not wait for the group and was talkings to the people who were at the front of the group.

Guide makes such a difference

Castle worth visiting. But wear good shoes and try to get a good guide (castle staff) as there's a lot of stories that make the castle more beautiful - even the armoury

Thank you for your feedback! I agree that the tour guide makes all the difference as far as sightseeing monuments and castles are concerned because they can enrich the visit with stories that you cannot find online or on an information board.

Rushed.....

The guide seemed to rush us through the rooms we visited, there was a lot of tapestries and other artefacts in the rooms but the guide never gave us much time to look at them and appreciate the wonder of them. The castle is an amazing place just wish that the guide was slower going through the rooms

Dear Guest, I am sorry to hear that the provided guide has not met the expectations and the tour felt rushed. I am good to read that despite this predicament Wawel Castle still holds its remarkability and was worth the visit.

A Marvel and a Must to see

The tour guide from the castle was fantastic but she really had to move us along to see only highlights to get done in time as there was so much to see. The castle contents were spectacular. It was so great to see so many tapestries and historic relics. Highly recommended.

Tour guide was good but tour operator poor

I had purchased a Senior Citizen ticket for my mum. Before we embarked on the tour, the lady from the tour operator Discover Krakov asked me for proof of my mum's age. I told her I had left the passport in the hotel, which was 5 minutes away and I could get it at the end. She said it was alright. 15 minutes later when we walked up the hill to the castle to begin the tour, she asked for ID again, as if she expected it to suddenly appear and then charged full price for my mum who was clearly over 65. It is true that I should have brought my mum's passport but if the agent form Discover Krakov had told me to get them when we were first waiting I could have done so. This spoilt the tour somewhat for both mum and I. I have no complaints with the actual Tour Guide he was friendly, knowledgeable and allowed my mum to access the lifts of the castle as she would have had difficulties with all the stairs.

Awesome tour, we were pretty rushed though, and even lost the tour guide a couple of times. I was with my 80 year old father, who can generally keep up. We were walking up and down a lot of stairs and on uneven ground, the pace was a bit unreasonable. Besides that, I would still recommend going.

It was very informative, perhaps too much so. I would have liked an overall about all of the buildings in the castle area, but this focused in great detail on the relics in 3 buildings.
