Wroclaw Small Group Walking Tour

2. Wroclaw Small Group Walking Tour

Join your (very) small guided tour at the Wroclaw Cathedral to explore Wrocław. Learn about its unique location on the Odra River with 12 islands connected and 130 bridges. This makes it very similar to Venice but much less crowded and more manageable. Enjoy its idyllic riverside  parks and its beautifully preserved Cathedral Island which is a treat for lovers of Gothic architecture. Follow your guide through winding maze of cobblestoned lanes, church spires and vibrantly colored buildings. This is the district where you’ll find most of the city’s historical monuments and medieval architecture so our walking tour will focus on this area. Admire the Town Hall and the Cathedral that overlooks the Market Square. Take in the impressive sight, with the decorative doorways and many spires and carved gargoyles looking down. Wander the narrow streets around the cathedral to see things like the Hansel & Gretel Houses, Ostrow Tumski and Centennial Hall. Pass stately town homes as you walk through cobblestoned streets and squares, hearing about Wroclaw's history and architecture dating back to the medieval ages. Settle in for the last part of your tour discovering the Jewish neighborhood, Turnski Bridge, University and the Old City Prison. There  are plenty of photo-worthy sights along the walk, so keep your camera handy especially when you see one of the 300 gnomes scattered throughout the city, with more appearing all the time.

This was a very good tour it lasted 2 hours during which our guide who spoke fluent English filled our heads with tons of information and history . The food offered was a great typical polish dish of pork tartare. We visited 3 bars drinking vodka and beer as we went Overall great fun and such a nice man

Everything was ok, except rain during shipping

The tour was a bit quick, the city guide was friendly - unfortunately it rained during the boat trip, but it was still interesting because the city guide explained everything to us nicely. 1 star deduction because the city tour had to go so fast that we could reach the ship.

The guide was amazing and patient. We were 30 m late for meeting point. It was too cold and the kids were very small so it was a challenge. Next time we will split up and surely enjoy it much better.

Fantastic city with lots of history. Very dedicated and knowledgeable guide. Nice guided tour with an hour boat ride and an hour around the city .recommended !!

Our tour guide was very nice and was able to convey a lot of knowledge. The atmosphere was very pleasant!
