The tours meet up in the main square near the church every so often. You end the tour at Schindlers factory with the option of going round the factory with the guide which I highly recommend. Unfortunately we caught the tour just before the factory... The guide was a very fluent speaking local lady called Asia who knew everything and... More

Joined the walking tour on Thursday 28th May. The group was quite large but very well managed by our guide Pawel. Pawel proved to be a suberb guide with a real wealth and depth of knowledge of Krakow and is someone who is clearly proud of his city and rightly so. We learned an awful lot during our two and...

We happened across the Jewish quarter walking tour in front of the old synagogue and decided to check it out when we heard the guide (tomek) had such easy to understand English. We weren't planning on doing a guided tour, but it was so informative and interesting that we did the entire thing after that, about two hours. It was... More

We went on a very good tour of the Old Town led by Nica. It lasted 2.5 hours and gave us a very good grounding and introduction to Krakow. The tours are quite big so not always as audible as they might be, not the guide’s fault, it's simply a function of the group size. To be fair our guide... More

We did the Old Town tour on Friday 29 May with Ania. A brilliant guide, Ania was knowledgeable, fun and made the whole tour such an enjoyable experience. The time passed so quickly. We enjoyed ourselves so much we retuned next day for the Jewish quarter tour also with Ania. Not even a downpour and thunder could detract from another... More

We went on two tours- Old Town and Jewish Quarter/Ghetto- and both were informative and very entertaining.On a short visit they gave a great overview and insight into the city.No pressure to pay anything but look up the competition and be fair!

Ten days ago we spent some most interesting days in Krakow and enjoyed it a lot. The peak of the visit were some free tours that we took which were very informative and allowed us to see places, to learn about the history of Poland and Krakow, to taste the food and to enjoy the atmosphere of the place. The... More

Ideal way to have a fast start with exploring the city. Very good and knowledgeable guides. The free walking tours attract large number of participants. During our Old Town tour we even had to split up and we were accompanied by two guides. During the Jewish Krakow tour, you visit Kazimierz and Podgorze and you end outside of the Oskar... More
