About the tour

Kraków’s Old Town survived the Second World War, so you’re able to feel the ambiance of the days when it used to be the capital of Europe’s largest country. Come join us for a tour around a city that hasn’t changed much since the Middle Ages to find out why it was included on the first-ever UNESCO Heritage List!

We will show you where to look to find traces of the city in its heyday in the 15th and 16th centuries when Copernicus himself walked these streets. These were the days when Kraków teemed with the sounds of many different languages, colorful clothing and exotic goods, and people from around the world who came here seeking their fortune. But the roller-coaster of history never missed the royal city, and its days of wealth and prosperity turned to times of collapse and decline. The most recent tragedy of World War II and the hopelessness of communism are something you can still feel roiling under the seemingly calm and peaceful surface of contemporary Kraków. It was also during this dark time that Kraków was home to a young man who later changed the fate of Poland and the world. His name was Karol Wojtyła, better known as Pope John Paul II.

Like every good story, Kraków’s should have a happy ending, right? The city today will surely provide one! Join us and be ready to watch, touch, listen, smell and taste. You will definitely need all of your senses to discover Kraków!

The Tour in Krakow was really interesting and it was a pleasure to listen to history details and experiences of our tour guide (i think her name was Anja?!). We really enjoyed it and highly recommend it!

Maciek un fenomenal guía polaco, montañes, bárbaro y también de Cracovia, no de Varsovia que quede claritu. Espectacular su energía y sus historias grandes y sencillas, cautivadoras en este mundo covid en una ciudad más solitaria y más cautivadora aún si cabe sin grandes aglomeraciones estivales. De 10

El tour fue fantástico combinando historia con la historia detrás de la historia. Recomendable al 100% y de lo mejor que nos hemos encontrado en la ciudad. Además nos dio tips muy buenos en función del interés que le mostramos en nuestras preguntas. Así da gusto hacer tours
