Know More about this tour

Start your Krakow tour at a time that suits you best, and head out from your central Krakow hotel with your guide. You can either enjoy the tour on foot as a walking tour, or relax in the comfort of a luxury minivan as your guide drives.

Explore Krakow’s UNESCO-listed Old Town, an inspiring place that was rebuilt after being reduced to rubble in the Second World War. Hear the history while admiring the main square, Rynek Glowny, and the beautiful Cloth Hall that dominates it. Originally a 14th-century covered stall, the hall grew steadily grander over the years as Krakow’s textile trade grew, and is now an iconic city attraction.

Continue to the old city walls to see Florian Gate and the beautiful Barbican building – a turreted defence tower that served as a fearsome medieval fortification. With 10-foot (3-meter) thick walls bearing over 100 embrasions (slits for arrow and cannon fire), the building is one of the few remaining structures of its kind in Europe.

See St Mary’s Church with its famous little-and-large towers, and then head out of the Old Town to explore the old Jewish neighborhood of Kazimierz. All traces of its folklore and culture disappeared during WWII when the Jews were persecuted, but its Jewish architecture still stands proudly here today. Admire the beautiful synagogues of the area, and then take a stroll to Wawel Hill to see Wawel Royal Castle – a building that serves as a symbol of the independent Polish state.

Explore Nowa Huta – a fascinating urban neighborhood with a colossal steel factory. While the factory can’t be visited, the streets around it make for a pleasant amble, with a collection of interesting churches breaking up the Stalinist-architecture. If time permits, finish your tour with a stroll around Kosciuszko Mound, or perhaps pay a visit to Tyniec Monastery – a gorgeous Benedictine Abbey.

If you opted to enjoy your tour by minivan, then finish with a hotel drop-off. Alternatively, finish your tour at a place that’s convenient for you.

  • Great introduction to history of Kraków. Our guide was very enthusiastic, able to answer all our questions. She was also flexible to our particular needs. We learned a lot and were able to use what we learned for our further visits around the city.

  • Tour was good, but guide never took us to old Jewish quarter which was advertised as part of the tour.

  • Good tour.

  • 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.

  • OUR TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY GOOD AND AS WE WERE GOING TO TAKE ANOTHER TOUR OF THE CITY, SHE CONCENTRATED ON THE JEWISH DISTRICT. MOST INTERESTING

  • 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.

  • We had this tour in Octouber 2015.
    Our guide Macheck was great, kind and extremely knowledgeable. We had a great time learned many new interesting things. We like Kracov and wish to return in it sometime.

  • Fabulous guide. Incorporated all the main sites and answered all our questions.

  • 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.

  • Jack the tour guide very informative. Good forthe price
