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.

Brilliant way to see Kraków. I was fortunate to be the only person on the tour, so it felt a bit more personal. My guide/driver was great, thank you so much for your time, hope to see you again soon

Claudia was a very friendly engaging and informative tour guide that made the trip very worthwhile

Excellent tour guide, great service, would recommend to anyone
