    Amazing place.
    Stunning in every respect, amazing to see the statues and the stunning natural caverns. It’s a very long walk and an equally long walk to get out again.

    Amazing experience
    We had a great experience from start to finish. The ride from Krakow to Auschwitz was a little over an hour. Once we got to Auschwitz, we met our tour guide, Anna, who was amazing. She was so well spoken and thorough in her delivery from start to finish. She gave many details about each part of the tour and connected each part. She would also reference back to parts we already saw which was nice. You do move quickly through certain parts but We felt as though there was enough time to see everything. Pictures are allowed in MOST parts but your guide will tell you when you are not allowed if you choose to take any. She ended the tour in a beautiful way and left our group with a beautiful saying and reminder about how we are still here and to be grateful for that. We need to remember what happened so it doesn't happen again. *There is A LOT of walking and can get tiring but it really put into perspective what it was like for those that experienced it daily. We also opted for the bagged lunch and it was great. There was a lot of food for the price and had a variety of items (sandwich, apple, banana, bottle of water, juice box, cookies, tissues, mints). There was a 10-15 min break in the middle.

    Krakow Walking Food Tour
    Magda was a great guide. She spoke very good English and was easy to understand. Her knowledge of the local area, history and culture was excellent as well as the cuisine. The food was very good, but bring your appetite. There was a lot of food. I’d highly recommend the tour.

    Be prepared for walking but it’s worth it!
    We made our own way to the Salt Mine and would recommend, we got the train from Krakow as it’s a direct line and the mine is the final stop so it’s very easy and cheap too. The Salt Mine was amazing but be prepared to do a lot of walking! Our guide was very friendly, informative and had a great sense of humour. The chapel was especially beautiful, and to think that the tourist route only shows you 1% of the mine is a crazy thought! Not too much range at the restaurant but can’t go wrong with nuggets and fries 😂

    YOU GOTTA LIKE SALT..( and stairs)
    I can only re-iterate what many reviewers have written...lots of walking and would not recommend if you have mobility issues or are claustrophobic. The female guide I think named Patricia did a sterling job showcasing the Salt mines, amazing place which to my ignorance I was unaware of until we booked our trip to Krakow. The church was spectacular incredible to think the miners did this all by hand, so take time to appreciate it all. I'm pleased we did this trip and Auschwitz on two separate days as I can't understand how you could possibly see everything in one day and the Auschwitz-Birkenau tour should never be rushed. The transport from our hotel was straightforward and only took 30 mins.

    Make sure you have your walking boots on!
    This is certainly a unique experience but not one for people with mobility issues or who simply don’t like walking too much! From the several hundred steps down to the first level to the 3+ hours of walking afterwards it’s a fair workout… I was just thankful for the elevators at the end lol. In between those there was a lot of caves and a lot of salt so it really does do what it says on the can. Some areas are quite breathtaking to be honest though I must admit it’s not a trip I’d do twice. It’s also possible that this could be done cheaper just through local buses and buying admission tickets on-site.

The bus and minivan were modern, well maintained with good air conditioning. The tour guide knew her material well and was very enthusiastic about her subjects. The pace was moderate with some climbing; however, there were some older people in the crowd and she looked after them well. There is no opportunity to stop for water, definitely bring some with you. You get one bathroom break, take it. If your a photographer and want to snap pictures in the last church, it’s the big one off the main city square, you will need to have 5pl with you to pay for it.

We had this tour on our first full day in Krakow and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and informative. Gave us a good overview of the city and told us about the history of the city, as well as some tips on what we could do with our spare time in the city which was very useful. The castle tour was completed by a different guide, this part of the tour was also very good. Overall the tour was great as a way of seeing all of the tourist areas in the city.

We took the 5 hour all day tour with DiscoverCracow. It gives a good overview but it needs to start earlier as there is a lot to see and it was quite rushed at the end before the visit to Wawal Castle. It would have been good to spend more time in the Jewish Quarter - this was also a bit rushed. Some members of the group had anticipated a coffee stop which is in the description of the tour - but this did not happen - there was barely a comfort break. Starting at 9.15 would have been better and given time for a break as there is a LOT of walking. We found it all very interesting though and the guide was very informative. The Castle tour also tends to be a bit rushed. Maybe individual tours take longer time??

I was fortunate enough to be the only person on this tour for the day. It was exceptional! Christopher (Krzysztof) met me right at 10:30 to begin the tour. I was really overcome by all the history of Poland he was explaining and in 'awe' of the wonderful statues representing the different kings and noblemen he was pointing out on the walking tour. He took me thru the streets of Old Krakow and pointed out different buildings where Pope John Paul lived and went to priest school where Chopin lived - The Wawel castle was amazing and we even saw a brand new exhibit that had just opened.

We ended our tour at a wonderful Cafe and just sat and discussed what was shown.

I'd highly recommend this tour and note that there is ALOT of walking, but not at a fast pace and you can take your time.

I do recommend attaining a certified-Guide as Krzysztof is as there are many 'so-called guides for hire' that are not certified and give improper information and facts.

My Guide was Krzysztof Ciacma and his email is taisatravel@poczta.onet.pl as he was an exceptional Guide and was born and bred in Krakow his entire life. I could not have had a better person to show off their city -
