Great tour but poor guide
Everyone should attend Auschwitz at some point in their lives to reflect on the atrocity that occurred. The tour is conducted with appropriate respect but group sizes are large and spaces within the buildings are limited. The guide was not a natural! She was monotone throughout, essentially reading off a script, no personality whatsoever! The tour is disorganised in places due to a constant change in staff.
Auschwitz-Birkenau Guided Tour from Krakow
Awesome tour!
Ticket line incredibly long. Arrived without pre purchased tickets early afternoon, one ticket window open only, on line probably an hour behind possibly 150people. Took English speaking tour. Guide extremely knowledgeable. Wear sneakers! Cobblestone-like walking surface leads to tired feet. Beautiful, beautiful, carvings etc. very informative and amazing tour. We didn’t eat at restaurant but food looked and smelled delicious. Don’t miss museum tour at end. More to see outside mine when you exit. Leave a little time to walk around outside. Highly recommended.
Historical Tour of Krakow’s Wawel Royal Castle
Exceptional
The tour guide was exceptionally well informed, passionate about her presentation and also had a wonderful sense of humor!
Historical Tour of Krakow’s Wawel Royal Castle
Interesting
It was a nice thing to see. The castle makes a really good impression. My favourite place here is this one close to dragon.
Historical Tour of Krakow’s Wawel Royal Castle
Wow!
This is a must visit. It totally explains what happened before the holocaust really took hold. The story of everyday people and the changes made to every single life.. everyone was effected in some way. The very beginning through to the end of a terrible era of atrocity... we had a superb guide called Anya who explained it all and really brought the brutality Home to us. I would recommend a guide wholeheartedly
Guided Tour of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory
Following the film...
An excellent guided tour! Thank you Anna. Very informative and the personal touch , stories of your grandparents was appreciated. We learnt far much with you than if we had gone round on our own. I can't quite believe how quickly Krakow was occupied over that week in September 1939. And how people were treated.

I'd recommend this tour to anyone visiting! Popped next door to the art museum after for coffee and cake! Nice.
Guided Tour of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory
Great experience
I'm so glad we paid for this and didn't just go to the factory on our own. The guide turned up bang on time and was really knowledgeable, spoke good English and told us so many facts as we went round. Its not just about Schindler, we were immersed in the horrible history of the war. Really recommend this trip. Also note that if you want to go without the pre booked guided tour they only allow so many in each day so you need to get there early.
Guided Tour of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory
Excellent overview starting with the beginning of WW 2 in Poland
All of the guided tours were filled. We obtained our self guided tickets at the ticket office at the back of the Cloth Hall with a set time to arrive. We were so glad we were not with a guided tour. Everything has written explanations & you can go at your own pace. Actually when there is a group it tends to clog up the path as at some places the path is narrow. The museum is not just about the story of Oskar Schindler. It tells the story of Poland & the Jewish people. Some pictures & sounds were graphic but you leave knowing the truth about the suffering of the people.
Guided Tour of Oskar Schindler’s Enamel Factory
Discover how much he did to save the Jewish people
This museum covers the Nazi occupation of Krakow during World War 2. It shows how Oskar Schindler treated the Polish and Jews he employed and what he did to save as many of them as he could. When you first start your visit there is a cinema where a few of the Schindler Jews tell what he did to help them and save them. You start on the second floor and work your way down. There are lots of displays and videos of people describing what life was like during the occupation. This museum has wheelchair access and you can pay for a guided tour even though all displays have Polish and English descriptions. There is only a slight mention of the movie Schindler's List and that is right at the end near the cafe. A limited number of free lockers are available for you to store bags and jackets during your visit. Purchase your tickets in advance as those people are let in first. If there are any spots left then walk in visitors are allowed. We didn't purchase tickets in advance but got there 20 minutes before opening time so were near the front of the queue and were allowed in. We did hear people saying the museum was full by 11 am the previous day and lined up early this time. The #3 tram will get you from the old town across the river to the museum. Get off at the first tram stop after you cross the river and exit to the right behind the tram. Follow the signs on the street poles for a short 5 minute walk to the museum. Allow around 3 hours to properly visit the museum. Entry to the factory is free on Monday but is closed the first Monday of each month.

Absolute must do!
The tour is approx 2 hours long with a short break in the middle. It is very interesting and informative. Our tour guide was great. Toilets are free here but the will try get an extra tip. Loved this experience. We got a salt lamp from the stalls outside as they are cheap than the ones found inside! Would highly recommend this tour.
Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour from Krakow
Extraordinary
I have rarely seen anything this extraordinary. You start by going down a 'spiral' staircase that is square in cross-section and which seems infinite. There follows a 2 km walk though tunnels that frequently widen into display areas, chapels, ponds, son et lumiere, caverns. It is one wonder after another, difficult to encapsulate in words or pictures. The return to the surface is, mercifully, by a fast lift. Salt carvings, salt chandeliers, Salt statues. Goethe apparently called it a 'wonder of the world' in the 1790s - I have to agree with him. Our trip was marred slightly by a guide who thought that his role was to tell jokes rather than introduce the mine - but the sheer profusion and scale of the exhibits shone through his frail ego. I overheard other guides who were excellent. It is absolutely fascinating - please go! I went as part of a group - a category not included below in trip Advisor's list, so I have had to tick 'solo'.
Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour from Krakow
Amazing underground complex
The must do if you are in Krakow. The tour is about 3km walk through the network of caves - you start by descending approx 60 meters via wooden stairs so get ready for some physical excercise. The caves and corridors, which were created in the past 500 years of salt mining is a unique sightseeing - some of the rooms can accommodate hundreds of people. It is an exciting excurse to the history of salt mining.

The saltiest of trips
When going to the salt mine I was not sure what to expect. What welcomes us was a maze of chamber and passages filled with sculptures and beauty. Only a 30min bus journey from krakow main square this is a must see attraction. Our guide Joanne was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would definitely visit again.
Wieliczka Salt Mine Guided Tour from Krakow
Absolutely fascinating incredible place
A completely unique experience. The sheer scale and history cannot be overstated.
It's a 1 mile walk through the key chambers, albeit there's 200 miles if tunnels.
The carvings are incredible, and the cathedral in the middle is stunning.
The walkthroughs are well presented, and if you're reasonably fit with good shoes it's easy to walk around. Temperature is c15 degrees, air is fresh.

Fab Introduction to Polish Cuisine
We'd only been in Krakow for around 3 hours when we set off on our tour of the Kazimierz area with our guide Maciej and 9 other guests making a group of 11.

We started with what turned out to be the best Pierogi of the trip and got to try a wide variety of food and drink, you won't be hungry at the end of this tour. Our guide was clearly passionate about his city and local food. We got to sit down at all the restaurants and bars visited so it felt unhurried and convivial.

The tour did what I hoped - gave us an introduction and some orientation to an area and ideas of places to return to eat.Thoroughly recommend checking out the Jewish quarter and it's options.

A delightful food tour!
We went on this food tour in mid October, and it was a delightful experience.

I’m not going to give away any of the places we went, but all of them had their own charm.

This was a great introduction to Polish food, but even better is the additional comments and stories that Kamila added. Not only did we get a chance to try quite a few Polish dishes, but also got to learn about some Polish customs and traditions.

We got to sample some Polish pierogi’s that were fantastic. During our stay in Poland we had pierogis several times at different places, however by far the best ones were the ones that we ate on this tour. We got to sample soups, beer, vodka, and several other dishes. My only regret is that we didn’t have enough time in Poland to go back and get full meals at some of the places!

Kamila was a fantastic tour guide. She was truly interested in everyone, and made sure to get a chance to chat with everyone. She shared pictures and stories, and was overall a delightful host.

After the tour, we actually decided that when we return to Poland, we’ll go on this tour again.

Thanks Kamila for a fantastic (and tasty) tour!

Fantastic tour!
So glad we took this food tour on the first night of our holiday as we were able to try more of the different foods and eating places recommended by our fabulous guide Kamila during the rest of our stay in Krakow.
Kamila guided our group around the tour and explained everything we had to eat and drink with such passion it made the tour even more enjoyable. We had plenty to eat and went home full. I would not hesitate to book this tour, you won't be disappointed.

Wonderful Introduction
Would highly recommend this tour as an introduction to both Krakow and Polish cuisine. Our guide was knowledgeable and fun and paced the tour just about perfectly.
We booked for the first night of our stay and the tour provided information we were able to reuse whenever we ate or drank during the remainder of our stay. They even give you a good quality map of the city with recommendations - we tried a couple and both were excellent.
Highly recommended!

Informative and enjoyable
Maciej was an engaging and knowledgeable guide over almost 4 hours. A former chef who patently liked his subject and was enthusiastic throughout. He was also very patient and accommodating with a less able bodied member of our group. We visited numerous eateries and whilst, individually, we weren’t overly keen on one or two of the offerings, we did get to try new things in friendly places. The beer stop was a bit average but overall, we explored some back streets and we all rated the experience highly. I liked the flavoured vodkas and sought them out again later during our Krakow stay.
