Overview

Join City Walks Krakow as we delve into the city's Medieval past. From its humble beginnings as a merchant town to its transformation into a royal city and the once capital of Poland; Krakow has one of the most fascinating histories in Europe.

Journey with us into the past, as we explore the cobbled streets once walked by famed astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus and peer through stained glass windows into the life of Stanislaw Wyspianki; Poland's most famous artist. Along the way we will visit Krakow's royal castle and cathedral, see the city's famous Cloth Hall- a UNESCO world heritage site and listen intently as the St. Mary's trumpeter plays his hourly Henyal call from St. Mary's Basilica. If you're ready to discover the magic of Krakow and tales of witches' curses and fire-breathing dragons, then join us every day at 11 am or 1 pm!

Although everyone is welcome on our free tour, we recommend that groups of more than 10 guests contact us in advance to book a private tour.

    local guides are the essence of a good walking tour. they are more passionate about their cities rather than someone from abroad ridiculing the natives
    City Walks Krakow reply:
    Hi, Thanks for you review. As the only non- native guide in our company I can only assume this review was aimed at me. I assure you that despite not being from Poland, I know Krakow as well as any other guide in this city and had to learn the same information as any one else, so I see no reason why the fact that I am not Polish should be relevant to my skills as a guide here. In fact I think that someone who has chosen to live in a city and work as a guide there, rather than simply being born there, will usually talk with more passion about it because they are there by choice.

    I also deeply love Poland and its people and am sorry if I gave the impression of anything to the contrary. In fact I usually spend most of my tour talking Poland up and often trying to change other people's preconceptions of Poland, so I was surprised to read your comments. I'm not sure exactly what you are referring to as ridicule of the natives, but given that my friends, work colleagues and girlfriend are all Polish, it seems unlikely that whatever was said was meant as ridicule.

    In jest, as just a bit of fun on the tour, guides often joke that the Polish people sometimes mix truth with fiction in their stories, but that is simply because many of the tales are legends of dragons and witches and I don't think are really supposed to be believed. If this is what you were alluding to in your review, then it is meant as nothing more than harmless fun and should be treated as such.
    Furthermore I know several native Polish guides who tell the exact same stories I do and I wonder if you would have had the same reaction if they had been told by someone who was Polish. I hope you enjoyed your visit to Krakow. Thanks for joining the tour.
