What You Can Expect
Before you return to Krakow you will stop at the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki. The sanctuary is situated some four kilometers south of Krawkow's central Old Town historic district and is a developing place of pilgrimage that you can pay homage to the holly relics of St. Faustyna Kowalska, who was canonized as the first saint of the Third Millennium by John Paul II, and admire the impressive modern basilica consecrated by the Pope in 2002.
Then travel to the foot of the Royal Castle to visit the Archdiocese Museum located in the most picturesque street of Krakow. In the museum you can see the flat where Karol Wojtyla lived while working as a lecturer of theology.
Finally, visit the Archbishop's Palace which is Wojtyla's last residence before leaving for the Vatican in 1978. See the famous "papal window", where thousands of people lit candles and prayed during his last days. Tour ends with drop off at Krakow city center,
a very touching and uplifting experience being able to have an in depth understanding of this former pontiff. The guide patiently brought us through the 3 churches explaining the significance of each and every artefact. Most poignant of the 3 church is the one at Wadowice where we literally walk through Pope John Paul II life. A must go for visitors regardless of religion to see how humble life bring out great people.
Highly recommend this! I was the only one in the tour and my guide is amazing! Not only does he know the history of Poland in details, but also has a great love for 1970s music in Poland - which is amazing by the way :)

We had a wonderful experience. Our guide was most accommodating. He was kind and courteous. His knowledge of the places we visited on the tour and indeed Poland in general was absolutely amazing. Nothing was a problem to him. We thoroughly enjoyed our day. Thank you.
The guide was amazing. He really looked after us by explaining everything clearly and providing very personal service. The tour group was small, only 4 of us, and we were really looked after. He did not rush us through places but went out of his way to make sure that we had time to see places we visited.
Great, muy bueno, the tour guide a young boy, spoke English and Spanish. Going to his church, his footsteps very nice.
