Krakow: Wawel Castle and Wawel Hill Audioguide Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
- Optional audio guide
- Small group
We were met early by our guide Maciej and he promptly commenced our tour of the Cathedral and Castle. He was very thorough and knowledgable in all their history, as well as explaining the history of Poland. He gave so much information but also gave lots of time to answer our questions. He went beyond the allocated tour time and also helped us seek a tour of the Jewish Quarter. So pleased we booked this tour - it was particularly nice that it was only for our group of 4 as we were able to move smoothly through the tour without getting separated within the crowds who were also visiting. Would certainly would use again.
Our tour guide was so lovely and pleasant throughout the full tour, she was very informative and knew loads of information and details regarding all the places we visited throughout the tour. We were lucky enough to be the only customers on that tour so we had the full attention of the guide on what felt like a private tour. We had no idea about the history of Wawel Castle, so this was a great tour as we learned a great deal and we really recommend the tour for anyone who wishes to visit!
My guide Yola was very knowledgeable and passionate about the history of the castle grounds and its ancient roots and its time capsule nature in profiling the beginnings of Kraków. I learned from the tour how much the castle and the cathedral played an integral part for Krakow's, or indeed Poland's, history. Yola was kind enough to answer our questions from the group.
I booked this online,it included,the cathedral,the cathedral museum,and the bell, after we finished in the cathedral itself,we searched everywhere for the museum,asking security staff,reception staff each and every one pointed us in the direction (of sorts lol) only to find the museum is closed on Sundays,no one mentioned that fact at all
The Wawel Cathedral holds a substantial amount of Polish history, and I would definitely recommend it, as my wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the tour. This is best taken with the audio guide, which is cued up to narrate as you are walking through the cathedral.
