What you'll do

I invite you on a magical stroll through my city Old Town. I offer individually tailored cognitive journey through history, culture, fun and contemporaneity. We will meet a foot step from the most traditional food market in Krakow, where you can see what Poles eat and how they buy it. Then we will continue our walk towards Krakow's beating heart: the medieval Main Square, where you will learn a bit of the history and will not miss any of the main monuments. We will visit all sites from the outside, and inside with the additional charge of the entrance fee if you wish so, and I will give you recommendation on further attractions and places to go and to eat in Krakow
I will also draw your attention to small, insignificant traces of the past life of Krakow, we will look up at the facades, find buildings' old emblems, enter forgotten courtyards and trace disappearing workshops..
My tours are combainig a general information about main sites with a beat off the beaten track treasures. They are informative yet very informal and relaxing; this is what holidays are all about, isn't it?

Where you'll be

We'll cover the Royal Route of Krakow, from the North to the South of the city. Will pass through the University District and pop into main churches on the way. Will end up around the Wawel Hill, the former residence of polish kings, from where will have a panormic view on the Vistula river and Krakow surroundings. On the way I will also show you my favourite side of Krakow: hidden gems like back courtyards, vintage shop signage, old doors etc

With this tour I understand some side information from Kraków, thanks to that I know a lot of decoration and interior design in Kraków from the gothic and Renaissance style. There is some places without the tour you are not able to get into which i felt very special! The tour guide is very nice, talkative and easy going, she was so nice and bring me to have a very nice place to have polish breakfast. If you love to know history about Kraków you should have a try on this :) it’s really cool.

This was a thorough and wonderful tour. Janina was unable to be our guide but Joanna substituted for her and was exceptional. We saw sites and places, and heard stories we wouldn’t have been able to on our own. It was a blast!

I would highly recommend a tour with her.

Loved this! Janina was not available so she arranged for Róża, another experienced guide, to take me on the tour. I really enjoyed the depth of knowledge and history and architectural details, I was able to ask many questions and really connected with Róża. Also loved our little break in a beautiful cafe! I feel this contributed to an amazing experience in Krakow. (By the way I speak Polish so I specifically asked for a tour in Polish)
