This was a wonderful day, made even better by a fantastic tour guide. Adrian spoke perfect English which made for a really informative tour and a great sense of humour too. Perfect for guiding 2 Scousers around Krakow. The museum had some amazing items belonging to Saint John Paul II on display, then onto the Basilica and Saint Faustino resting place. Truly a wonderful day. Thanks again to Adrian. I would definitely recommend.

Great tour and Highly recommended

Nice to know the life of Pope John Paul II, and our tour guide / driver Michael was also nice and helpful. The van was also new and comfy with car seat for our little one. Highly recommended considering that we only booked it a day before and communication with the tour operator was a breeze.

Driven at first to the home of Pope Paul II, for the main museum tour of the day. Excellent start to the day and gives a full insight into his life. The journey there is about 50 minutes but this flies by driving through beautiful countryside. Then it's a short excursion to a Basilica. The name escapes me but it's a lovely place. The final 2 stops are big Basilica' s again and well worth a good look around. A fantastic day visiting the life of the Pope.
