It was ok. Got access to a number of areas. Guide was very knowledgeable but a bit boring. Wawel Castle is a must do, though.

very interesting visit our guide spoke excellent English and knew everything about the castle and cathedral
the only problem was the meeting place and the actual tour stat were a fair distance apart, it was extremely hot and up hill and I struggled to keep up

The tour was informative, not overwhelmed by facts and engaging. The guide had a great sense of humour. It was a pleasure

The guide was a bit too informative for my taste as the guide gave a lot of extra information. Also incredibly long.

Well organised, guide very good with English and very knowledgeable on the history of the castle and krakow. Great tour

Castle is amazing. Tour a bit dry but we left and wandered on our own. Saw way more that way than if we had stayed. Tours seem timed and hurried.

Guide avec de l'humour et plaisant

De tour was heel interessant, de gids had heel veel kennis over Krakau en het Kasteel. Het duurde iets te lang, maar een gids maakt het bezoek aan het kasteel veel interessanter dan gewoon zelf heen gaan.
