Great tour. Have been to Krakow several times so this was something different. Ontime pick up at our hotel. Driver was courteous and answered all our questions. The castle ruins were farther apart than I had anticipated. We had perfect weather. One of the ruins was closed when we arrived and would not open for several hours, so we just opted to take some photos from the outside. Would highly recommend this tour, which is an all day event.

My sister and I were truly impressed by everything we learned from our guide and all the places we visited. It is a well-rounded day trip in which we got to see the beautiful Polish landscapes and many truly impressive structures. Arthur was an excellent guide, extremely knowledgeable and passionate about the knowledge he shared with us and truly willing to make our day trip the most enjoyable possible.

The excursion is very interesting and makes us discover nature and this unexpected castle near Krakow.We also particularly appreciated our guide, Rafal, who was attentive to our physical capacities to adapt the activities planned in the excursion and we gave insightful explanations of what we visited as well as good advice on what we could still visit in Krakow.
