Description

The mythical land of mighty kings, historians, and heroic legends. If the bricks and cobblestones of this capital city could talk, we would instantly discover fascinating stories about some of the most crucial moments in Polish & European history. From Czech dominance back in the IX century, passing through Swedish ruling in the 1700s; to the Prussian, Russian and Austrian division and some of the most tragic hours of modern history, during WWII. Respectfully ask Wawel’s dragon for permission to enter the castle and discover this architectural jewel, wander the streets of the “Ghetto” and learn about one of the toughest lessons histories has taught us. All wrapped in a fairytale-like atmosphere that will mess with your senses. Indulge yourself with a delicate cup of coffee or tea, inside an unknown garden cafe in Kazimierz (the old Jewish quarter), a fascinating neighbourhood full of fascinating stories and unique places to visit. For the "grand finale," we are conducting our group to a sacred part of the city, where Celtic tribes buried their noble prince, Krakus, who is believed to be founded the first settlement in this area. Listen to the stories about this visionary pagan leader while you enjoy some of the most splendid views of the city.

Best tour I have done in Europe.
David ran a terrific tour sharing his unique knowledge of the history of Krakow as we visited sights away from the main tourist hotspots. His passion, enthusiasm and care for his guests was at a level above that I have experienced from any other tour guide. I have done about 40 tours in Europe over the years and this was the best.

If you want a quality experience that you will remember Krakow for take this tour.
David will make your day!
for David
David gave me a wonderful introduction to Krakow on a morning tour. He went out of his way to pack many interesting stops into the tour - places I’d never find on my own. David is a fun guy who speaks perfect English and gave me personal insights to Krakow’s culture, history and food (including where to get great coffee). I followed up on the excellent recommendations he gave me for the rest of my stay.
