A quite fascinating tour of three very different Polish castles. Our driver and guide, Tom, a young university student who does tour work in his spare time to help make ends meet, was pleasant, polite and knowledgeable, despite stating this was the first time he had led this tour. None of us on it felt that detracted from our day, and we all thought he did very well. Well worth doing to get a different perspective on another aspect of Kraków and its hinterland - and if you do it you will be doubly lucky if you get Tom as your tour leader. One suggestion - take some lunch with you as there is no provision nor time for it on the trip. Mind you, if any of had wanted to stop for a bite I am sure Tom would have managed that, but none of us did.

A great day trip. The castles were very impressive, and the setting of them was really beautiful. It was great to get out of the city for the day, and learn a bit about Poland's fascinating history. A well organised and fascinating tour!
We had a really enjoyable day travelling with a knowledgeable guide to three historic sites. Each had its own story, and each is well worth the effort of walking around and exploring. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide Mark from Discover Krakow was great. He gets 5 stars!! The first two castles were just okay, but the last castle was worth the drive!! Had a wonderful time and would recommend to others.
Great day trip of two beautiful castles. The third castle first on the row of visit did not worth the visit.. Not much to see except from a single Tower in which you cannot enter. The other two definitely worth visiting!
Very nice experience, comfortable mini van and friendly tour leader. I highly recommend this trip to all those who like me, love history and especially visiting castles. We visited three castles, two of them in ruins but still its worth it. The Ogrodzieniec castle although its in ruins, its still a gem.
The Castle day trip was a great one day trip. It was fun to be able to see and walk around the old castle ruins and think what they might have looked like so many years ago. It was also nice to see some of the country side on the drive. The guide was on time and very knowledgeable. For a Castle buff it is a must see.
Very good guide and an interesting trip, however many of the castles are in ruins.
A reasonable tour. The castles were mostly closed because we visited out of season Easter. But the guide was good and the castles which were open were worth going to. Lunch was also nice. Worth knowing that there is a lot of walking on this tour, most of which is up steep hills.
One of the castles was closed for renovations and the driver was quiet most of the time but still enjoyed myself.
This must be the low point for this trip. Driver was clearly uncertain of the each of the castles we went. He could not answer any of the qn we had asked regarding details of the 3 castles we visited. Had to read the information sheet provided at the castles and attempt to piece information together. We found out from him the 1st castle he brought us ..... Which was not yet opened..... He had only gone once before! Obviously his knowledge would be limited.
Parts of the driving route he was uncertain n had to fiddle the map app on his mobile..... This was done when car was in motion.
This visit left us sorely disappointed not so much it was the most ex of all the tours in Kraków but we felt a learning moment was lost.
