Wawel Royal Castle, Wawel 5, 31-001 Kraków, Poland
Meet your local food-loving guide in the city center and begin with a visit to the popular Kleparz market, where you can stroll among stalls piled with fresh produce and try Polish specialties like oscypek, a smoked sheep’s milk cheese. Catch a short tram ride to the historic district of Kazimierz, home to winding atmospheric streets and a Jewish market featuring traditional kosher products. Pop in a neighborhood pub for an invigorating taste of famous Polish vodka.

Walk to the nearby Jewish Square to take in scenes of daily life and savor an included lunch of your choice from any of the local market’s food stalls. Learn about the long and complex history of Krakow’s Jewish district while exploring the surrounding streets, and then rest your feet while enjoying a refreshing beer at the Wolnica Market.

Cross the Vistula River on the the Kladka Bernatka, the city’s only pedestrian bridge, and explore a part of town seldom visited by tourists. Follow your guide to tucked-away treasures like unique shops, off-beat galleries, and bar mleczny (‘milk bars’) conceived as a way to cheaply feed workers during Poland’s Communist era.

Indulge your sweet tooth with a variety of Polish treats, and visit one last market tucked into the hills, offering a fantastic panoramic view of the city. From here, hop back on the tram and ride to the Wawel area, home to Krakow’s Royal Way. At the end of the 4.5-hour tour, your guide can provide tips on getting back to your hotel or exploring nearby attractions like Wawel Castle.

You should be there at the top of the hour to listen to the trumpeter who plays from the highest tower of this extraordinary church, a special signal to commemorate a legendary victory over the Mongols in the 13th century. This place is always busy, but around 2pm to 4pm there are fewer people, so if you can - enjoy the Basilica in the afternoon.

Fabulous Tour. Tomasz was a outstanding guide and very informative. If we didn't take this tour we would have missed a large part of our Krakow experience across neighborhoods.
