What people are saying about Kraków Zoo

Overall rating

4.2 / 5

based on 12 reviews

The trip itself was good. The zoo was amazing. It may have cost a little less if we had booked a taxi there and back without having the whole package. The zoo itself is only about 15PLN so cheap enough to get in. If you want to feel more safe and know you're going to get there and back safely then this trip is ideal. It said about getting beverages included but we didn't get any. Driver ran late but rang me to say he was going to be late which was good. Only us on transport and had more than enough time in the zoo while driver waited then trip back to dropoff wherever we wanted. Overall, good experience and brilliant zoo.
