It is highly recommended for travelers like us who are coming to Krakow for the first time. With direct pick-up at the hotel, it took just a few steps to get to the old town. And starting with the trumpeter, in honor of whom the 13 seconds is still played today in all four directions, this magnificent city was brought closer to us. We explored Krakow across all the streets and finally up to the Wawelburg. Just beautiful!

What a most wonderful day we enjoyed in Krakow thanks to our wonderful tour guide Magda. Her English was excellent, knowledge of Old Town and interesting off best sites amazing, and she was so very kind. We took a taxi to our meeting spot for the tour beginning. At the tour end we felt so comfortable in the area thanks to Magda that we walked back to our hotel.

So much fun and amazing way to see the city. We went in the dark and it made it really nice with all the Christmas lights. Our guide was called Viktor and he made alot of jokes and was so patient with teaching us all to ride the segway.

Extensive tour around Krakow with a very knowledgable and friendly guide. Segways added to the fun and allowed us to cover a far larger area.

Fabulous ... tour guide excellent would highly recommend
