What You Can Expect
Make your way over to St Mary's Basilica, famous for its hejnal (bugle call) that rings out on the hour from the top of the church’s tallest tower. Then, travel inside the square's historic Cloth Hall. During its golden age in the 15th century, the hall was the source of exotic imports from the east, including spices, silk, leather and wax, while Krakow itself exported textiles, lead and salt.
Venture next to Wawel Hill, Krakow's must-see attraction. Journey up to the top to spot the Wawel Royal Castle, the kings’ seat for more than 500 years.
Afterward, head inside neighboring Wawel Cathedral, where you’ll see the Royal Sigismund Bell. Learn about the bell’s fascinating history from your guide, dating back to 1520. At an astonishing 28,000 pounds (13 tonnes), it requires the efforts of 12 bell ringers to swing it!
Your tour will conclude on Wawel Hill, where you can continue exploring Krakow independently.
The tour was great, and our guide Jack was fantastic! He is clearly very passionate about his home town of Kraków, and made all of the history come alive with very interesting and entertaining stories. We walked for 3 hours in -10° Celsius, but the beautiful town and great guide made it so worth it!
TOUR GUIDE WAS VERY GOOD AND SHOWED US A LOT. WE WALKED FROM 2PM UNTIL PAST 5PM. IT WAS JUST GREAT

A pleasant way to learn a little of this very nice city, however, a map would be helpful.
These walking tours are always very informative and give you a taste of what you could/should go back and explore further. I could have used another week here. Krakow is amazing!
A good introduction to Krakow and lots of information from our guide about the city's legends and tips on where to eat and have coffee. Good way to find out what you want to go back to visit in more depth.
The guide was very knowledgable freindly although cold did not hesitate to stop and inform the group on the history of the places on the walk.
