What people are saying about Krakow Old Town

We never expected a history tour to be so exciting and enjoyable. The guide, Mr. Seweryn, is a professional with a great view, which he passed on to our family in an accessible way (children and adults were equally interested). During the trip, we learned about topics that were not taught in schools, we got to know many interesting facts. Bicycles should also be mentioned - they are efficient and comfortable. This is important considering the fact that we were driving on different surfaces. The pace is adjusted to our capabilities. We rate the Wednesday bike trip around Krakow at 6!

Severin, our guide was very knowledgeable and kind. We saw all highlights of the city and some good restaurant suggestions. Aperfect start to explore the city by ourselves the rest of the day and evening.

Amazing experience get to know Krakow and city history! Routes planed well and hassle free. Our guide was incredible and his knowledge endless! Would highly recommend!

It was a funny and informative afternoon. The guide is really great and has a great knowledge of Kraków. I can only recommend this tour :)
