Awesome tourguide Polina, who has answered all of our questions and is an excellent driver! The tour was very interesting and impressive, beautiful to see the Jewish quarter. The Oscar Schindler museum was very interesting. Polina gave us restaurant recommendations and dropped us off where conveniently for us. Great tour, highly recommended

We stay a week in Krakow. With 3 days of city pass you can easily optimize it. If you stay short, it will be difficult to organize the visits with the opening hours etc because with 12 tourist districts it takes time to travel

Our guide Paulina was excellent. Very friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable about the area and its history. We had a very enjoyable tour and would thoroughly recommend.
