Chris was an excellent tour guide, super insightful and incredibly funny! Would definitely do the other tours if we come back!

We really loved the experience, our guide Jola was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny, and we learned a lot. She even adapted the tour based on the interests of some of the group members. In the end we decided to pay twice as much as we thought we would because it was that good!

Our guide Izabelle was delightful! It was the perfect way to spend a couple of hours getting the history and inside story to this beautiful city, from where we could explore on our own. I highly recommend.

Jacek (Jack) was our guide, so knowledgeable, also with a great touch of humour. He will tell you the history of Krakow right from the beginning, while taking you through the old town, ending up at Wawel Castle. Highly recommended

Veronika was a fantastic tour guide who gave us a comprehensive overview of the beautiful city of Krakow and all its history, legends and attractions. I would thoroughly recommend anyone visiting Krakow to take part in one of these tours to get a rich and enjoyable insight into the city.
