“Interesting City Break”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

The old centre is remarkably intact, and very pretty, a number of the Curches are world class, with good food, bars and a thriving classical, jazz and contemporary music scene, away from the main square prices are very modest and generally better quality. It is also about 80 minutes drive to Auschwitz- Birkenau, which I think everyone should probably see once, has excellent guides and does not try to 'dramatise' what is left. Krakville Tours were excellent.

“Who Knew that Krakow was so Beautiful?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

I havent been everywhere so please take with a grain of salt but Krakow center reminds me just a bit of Pamplona Spain and a little like Quebec. The shops, the food, the people, the atmosphere, the things to see and do, the weather, I could not have asked for a better place to sit, drink a bit of wine and watch the people go by. It was great.

“Krakow old town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

The most beautiful old city, wonderful churches, castle, cloth market. Huge square surrounded by old buildings and with many cafes and restaurents with excellent food. Everything is in easy walking distance and there is always something interesting to see. I would go back again

“Not Golf this time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Took golf buggy tour - excellent. Able to stop when requested reached places taxis couldn't. Introduced to a Polish delicacy forgotten what its called but very tasty and so cheap - again in Jewish district - similar to Pizza but on fresh crusty bread, choice of toppings (great choice).
