5 Reasons you Should Take the Good Cracow Free Walking Tours
With over 1,000 years of history, Krakow has a lot of secrets waiting to be discovered. Our free walking tours will have you following in the footsteps of kings and queens or take you through some of the darker days in the city’s Jewish quarter. With several tour companies out there though, why should you choose our free walking tours? Here are just a few of the reasons why you should join us in exploring one of Europe’s lesser known gems.
Not one, but two free tours
To help you get the most out of your trip to Krakow, we offer two separate free walking tours. Our standard Old Town Free Tour will take you around the central parts of the city, through the largest medieval market square in Europe, and past the oldest university in the country. Our Jewish Quarter and Ghetto Free Tour will introduce you to Krakow’s Kazimier district, the inspiration for the movie Schindler’s List. You are welcome to join us on both!
Passionate guides who are excited to share their city
Any guide can recite a memorized script, but our guides go above and beyond. They are excited to tell you about their city because they’re passionate about where they live. Because of this, they’ll be happy to share their favorite spots with you. Whether you want to try some local vodka or would like to know where you can find the best pierogis in town, our guides can point you in the right direction.
There are few things worse than being in a tour group that is too big. While some free walking tours will let anyone join, we like to keep our groups small. This makes it easier for everyone to hear what the guide is saying and for the group to move around town. By keeping the numbers down, we also make it easier to get to know your guide and ask as many questions as you’d like.
In-depth introduction to Krakow
Just because our tour is free, doesn’t mean we rush through it. We want to give you a high-quality introduction to Krakow, so our guides take the time to provide you with in-depth information about both the city’s history and as it is today over the course of two and a half hours. We offer tours in English and Spanish so you have the option to have this information presented in whatever language suits you best. While the tour route is more or less set, our knowledgeable guides will be happy to throw in tidbits of information or point out additional things if you have a particular area of interest.
