  • 3-hour walking tour of Krakow's Old Town and Kazimierz district

  • Walk through Europe’s largest medieval market square, Rynek Glówny

Meet your guide in central Krakow to begin your 3-hour tour. Gaze up at one of the oldest churches in Poland, the 11th-century St Adalbert Church, before following your guide across the city’s main square, constructed in 1257.

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.

After exploring the Old Town, take a break to sample some delicious traditional Polish Obwarzanek - unique bagel connected with Krakow’s heritage. Then continue to the Kazimierz district to see the Jewish synagogues and cemetery, and learn about the history of the area. Make your way next to Wolnica Square, home to the gothic Corpus Christi Church.

From Kazimierz, return to the Old Town. Your tour will end beneath Wawel Castle, the royal residence of Polish princes and kings since the 10th century. If you are interested in a visit to the Castle, choose the Wawel Castle option on this tour and you will be taken on a fascinating guided tour of this stunning building.

Very interesting 3hour walking tour around the Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. Knowledgeable Guide Joanna provided an excellent commentary on this beautiful City.

So much to see, it is difficult to know where to start a walking tour introduces the best parts of the city and lets one gain a feeling of what is were for further exploration. Highly recommended.

Anna was very nice. She gave good brief overall perspective of the old town and just what we wanted to hone in on choosing our subsequent ventures.

Fully enjoyed the tour. The tour guide we had was called Paulina, she was very good. We crammed a lot in during the 3 hour tour. Fully recommend if you want to know the history of krakow and the buildings.

A great introductory tour by our lovely tour guide Johanna. We took the tour on a cold and snowy morning and enjoyed the entire experience. Johanna showed us the old city and the Jewish quarter in a logical manner and kept us oriented both geographically and historically. The short break at a coffee house was just what we needed to warm up and recharge mid-way through our tour. We especially enjoyed working our way outside the former city walls, through the gate and down the royal route to the castle. Our local guide provided insight and context about some colorful historical figures and legends of the city which made the tour even more personable.

We did this tour on our first day in Kraków and the guide Joanna was lovely. She explained everything so clearly and showed us such a lot of this beautiful fascinating city. Kraków has so much history and tradition its lovely to see how passionate it’s people are about their beautiful home. Fantastic.

Great way to spend 3 hours in Krakow. You learn a lot about the history of the city and you go down streets and laneways and into buildings that you might otherwise walk straight past. The pace of the tour suits all ages and is highly recommended.

Krakow exceeded my expectations! Beautiful, fascinating and very clean city at least in all the parts I visited. I was a little concerned about how I would hold up on a 3 hour walking tour, but the guide paced the tour appropriately and even gave us break at a nice cafe with delicious cheesecake included in price. The guide himself was very well-informed and spoke excellent English - it was a very enjoyable and worthwhile tour. I highly recommend it.

Professional and knowledgeable group leader. Lots of walking and saw many amazing historical sites. We enjoyed this tour so much.

Excellent tour with Karolina as our guide. She was very knowledgeable about the city and its history and added some amusing anecdotes and legends along the way. She was happy to answer any questions and we enjoyed her company. There is a lot of walking in the tour but it is at a good pace. There is a break midway through the tour where you den enjoy tea or coffee and a scrumptious piece of cake in a local restaurant. We covered around 8kms around Kraków but at no point thought that it was too long. The tour is in two parts with the second being the tour of the castle. We had a different guide for this but she too was excellent. Can highly recommend both parts of this tour.
