Fernando nuestro guía fue bastante aburrido. Daba demasiada información no hilada entre sí sobre todo de la historia de Polonia y apenas de la ciudad; todo como si estuviera leyendo la Wikipedia. Fue muy complicado seguirle, ya que era todo muy plano y daba demasiados datos saltando entre épocas históricas sin hilo conductor. El recorrido fue correcto y vimos los puntos más interesantes de la ciudad.

The walking tour with Bart was a unique experience we had during our stay in Krakow. We could learn from him a lot about history, fun facts and recommendations about the city in general. The way he would get the attention of the crowd was very special, making us really think and reason during his speech.
