We were met early by our guide Maciej and he promptly commenced our tour of the Cathedral and Castle. He was very thorough and knowledgable in all their history, as well as explaining the history of Poland. He gave so much information but also gave lots of time to answer our questions. He went beyond the allocated tour time and also helped us seek a tour of the Jewish Quarter. So pleased we booked this tour - it was particularly nice that it was only for our group of 4 as we were able to move smoothly through the tour without getting separated within the crowds who were also visiting. Would certainly would use again.

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!
