Good communication and very knowledgeable driver, She shared lots of historical information, actually more than we could absorb and had answers to all our questions. This tour was an excellent way to learn a lot about Krakow in a brief period of time and the golf cart tours outshine any hop on hop off bus tour I have ever taken.

Valentino made this guided tour exceptional! This was supposed to be an audio tour but Valentino was much more enjoyable to listen to. He had a wealth of knowledge about Krakow and kept it very interactive and entertaining. He even gave us great restaurant recommendations. Lovely experience and would highly recommend.

Starts off a little slow but gets very interesting as you progress through the day, I highly recommend ending the day in the cellar pub in the Old Town, grabbing a bite to eat off the square (really amazing food and not at all expensive) for lunch is a great idea.

Good way to see all the sites of Krakow if your limited by time or just want to get to know the city a bit better when you arrive. Driver was very knowledgeable

Our guide was perfect, so knowledgeable and informative. A lovely experience we would recommend to anyone :) thank you
