Our tour guide was Chris and he was extremely knowledgeable as he guided us around the Old Town portion of Krakow and over to Wawel Castle. It was a great way to explore the city and learn about its history. At the end of the tour he provided a digital map full of recommendations for places to eat, drink, get coffee etc. We tried several of his recommendations and they were all great! Highly recommend the tour and enjoyed Chris so much we came back for his other tour through the Jewish Quarter later in the day!

Hicimos tanto el de por la mañana (Casco Antiguo y Castillo) como el de por la tarde (Barrio Judío) y en ambos estuvimos con Santi. Disfrutamos mucho y fue muy entretenido. Repetiría sin duda.
