Tour description

Without Krakow, there wouldn't be Poland. This is where the beating heart of the Polish nation is still located. The history and the time have been merciful to Krakow architecture, so you will walk through centuries with us enjoying the real pearls among monuments.

The historical centre hasn't been rebuilt since the medieval ages and this is a UNESCO place. Krakow is one of the most charming places in the world and we will prove it during our tour.

Would you like to see the dragon? Why do we have so many pigeons? Why does a crazy guy trumpet four windows every hour? Whose head is it at the square? What is a papal window? These questions and many, many others will be answered by our licensed guides with a lot of smiles. Don't hesitate and join us!

This tour includes:

-St. Mary’s ( Mariacki) Church

-Medieval city walls and the Barbican

-The Main Market Square

-Collegium Maius

-John Paul II’s window

-The Wawel Cathedral

-The Wawel Castle

Incredible tour with Ella, the history of Krakow is so interesting and Ella did a great job educating us all about it. Unfortunately for Ella we were the only ones on the tour but we loved the private tour! What an incredible, resilient city!
