We booked this tour as we are in krakow for 3 days and wanted to have a good tour of the city. My sister is struggling with severe sciatica and this was perfect!! We had Claudia as a tour guide and she was exceptional. She had a wealth of knowledge and made us feel so welcome on Krakov and the tour. We cruised with the sides down, blankets and the heating on and it was brilliant. Due to my sisters mobility issues 2 of our group went to the Schlinder museum and the other two went to a cafe. It was a great day. THANK YOU!

Fantastic trip. The trip required lots of walking to get to each building but the stories were so interesting. Well worth the money, would even be happy to pay more for it. The stories spoke about who lived in the buildings years and centuries ago, how they lived, crazy ways they dealt with things. Very interesting 1hr 30 mins. Guide Navia also spoke great english.

Fantastic. Creepy is the correct title. This isn't a ghost walk, it is a walk with some creepy tales at each stop. Perfect for an evening walk around Krakow. Really enjoyed it and the guide was fabulous, engaging and knowledgeable.

I loved it - our guide was very pleasant and extremely knowledgeable. The tour was interesting and getting to ride a Segway was a very enjoyable experience!

You see a lot of sights in a short time. It's great for getting an overview of the city.
