We, the Krakow Explorer’s team, challenge you to join our tours that were tailored specially for those people who want to experience the premium quality excursions. Our team consists of professional licensed guides, historians and archaeologists who know every crook and cranny of the former Polish capital. Our goal is to make every person, who sets his foot in Krakow, fall in love with this city.

About the tour

Take a stroll around the city which boasts over 1000 years of history. We will show you the royal beauty of Krakow filled with medieval architecture, beautiful renaissance palaces, and gorgeous churches. Immerse yourself in the culture of Polish people, get to know outstanding Poles who greatly contributed to the way our world looks today.

Learn what is the most famous window in Poland, for whom the Sigismund's Bell at the Wawel castle (~11 000 kg) tolls, see the living symbol of Krakow –the trumpeter who plays his melody every hour from the St. Mary’s church, visit the cafeterias which were frequented by such celebrities as Chopin, Wyspiański, and even the infamous leader of the proletarian revolution Vladimir Lenin! Learn why Krakow was lucky to preserve its beauty in the days of WW2 and was not devastated by the German Nazis like Warsaw.

During the 2.5-hour tour you will see the best of the city and what is even more important, we will unveil you the most glorious but also tragic chapters of Polish history.
