Guide makes such a difference
, Oct 2019
Castle worth visiting. But wear good shoes and try to get a good guide (castle staff) as there's a lot of stories that make the castle more beautiful - even the armoury

The guide seemed to rush us through the rooms we visited, there was a lot of tapestries and other artefacts in the rooms but the guide never gave us much time to look at them and appreciate the wonder of them. The castle is an amazing place just wish that the guide was slower going through the rooms
A Marvel and a Must to see

The tour guide from the castle was fantastic but she really had to move us along to see only highlights to get done in time as there was so much to see. The castle contents were spectacular. It was so great to see so many tapestries and historic relics. Highly recommended.
Tour guide was good but tour operator poor
, Oct 2018
I had purchased a Senior Citizen ticket for my mum. Before we embarked on the tour, the lady from the tour operator Discover Krakov asked me for proof of my mum's age. I told her I had left the passport in the hotel, which was 5 minutes away and I could get it at the end. She said it was alright. 15 minutes later when we walked up the hill to the castle to begin the tour, she asked for ID again, as if she expected it to suddenly appear and then charged full price for my mum who was clearly over 65. It is true that I should have brought my mum's passport but if the agent form Discover Krakov had told me to get them when we were first waiting I could have done so. This spoilt the tour somewhat for both mum and I. I have no complaints with the actual Tour Guide he was friendly, knowledgeable and allowed my mum to access the lifts of the castle as she would have had difficulties with all the stairs.

Awesome tour, we were pretty rushed though, and even lost the tour guide a couple of times. I was with my 80 year old father, who can generally keep up. We were walking up and down a lot of stairs and on uneven ground, the pace was a bit unreasonable. Besides that, I would still recommend going.

It was very informative, perhaps too much so. I would have liked an overall about all of the buildings in the castle area, but this focused in great detail on the relics in 3 buildings.

very knowledgable guide who did her utmost best during three hours to give us all the facts and figures about the castle: from history to small, but picturesque details about the eating habits in those days.

Great, informative and comprehensive tour of the cathedral, palace and armoury. Our guide was fantastic and we would highly recommend her - she was patient and addressed questions thoroughly, and even extended the tour so we could cover everything. We would have found it impossible to cover as much as we did on our own and we also learned an incredible amount about the history of Krakow and Poland.

The guide was very knowledgable and quite humorous.the group was quite small so we could all hear and see everything he was talking about.
