Krakow: Skip The Line Wawel Castle Guided Tour
- Small group
- Duration options: 75 minutes - 4.5 hours
The whole tour was excellent mostly because of the knowledge, humor and enthusiasm of our tour guide, Magda. In addition to copious amounts of Polish history and Polish cultural information, she excelled in giving personal quips, which added to the friendly spirit of the tour. She was personable and engaging, Magda was cognizant of some members physical limitations and was patient.. Both the castle and church were interesting to view and learn about. The reconstructions are truly remarkable and retrieving the artifacts and restoring the castle rooms to their original splendor further impresses on the non Pole the strength of the Poles to survive and to preserve their culture and independence.
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.
What a most wonderful day we enjoyed in Krakow thanks to our wonderful tour guide Magda. Her English was excellent, knowledge of Old Town and interesting off best sites amazing, and she was so very kind. We took a taxi to our meeting spot for the tour beginning. At the tour end we felt so comfortable in the area thanks to Magda that we walked back to our hotel.
