Παρόλο που η ξεναγός ήταν πολύ ευγενική η ξενάγηση ήταν μικρή κ σχεδόν αδιάφορη. Πλήρωσα 120 ζλοτι για δύο ορόφους(το παλάτι είναι πραγματικά τεράστιο...) κ την εκκλησία. η εκκλησία είναι δωρεάν ενω οι κρύπτες κ το καμπαναριό που έχουν έξτρα χρέωση(12ζλοτι) δεν ήταν μέσα στο πακέτο.

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.
