TamarBoston_MA about me on Trip Advisor: “We took two tours – Cultural Krakow and Jewish Krakow. Both were led by Damian and both were excellent. They were informative and enjoyable, yet serious where appropriate. Highly recommended.”

Después de vivir 15 años en Valencia decidí que el calor y el sol no eran lo mío. Vine a Cracovia y decidí quedarme. Me enamoré de la ciudad; me cautivaron su historia, su lengua, sus habitantes y costumbres — sobretodo el wódka y los ogórki kiszone:) Estaré encantadísima de compartir con vosotros belleza y la magia de esta ciudad.

Melinda B from Kansas City about me: “I thoroughly enjoyed my walking tour through Old Town Krakow with Dimitri! He was fun, energetic, and full of historical facts. Not only did I enjoy looking at the architecture and strolling around Old Town, I also learned a lot about the history of Krakow.”

He llegado de Argentina, desde el otro lado del planeta, donde el Tango, el asado dominan el día. Amo pasear, aprender y divertirme, y quiero que tú también lo hagas en esta increíble ciudad. Pasea conmigo y terminarás silbando inconscientemente los sonidos de esta fascinante Cracovia!

Very informative. Passionate guide!

Went on a solo trip and saw a free tour guide with a sign to Jewish Quarter, tour guide bent over backwards for us and could tell really is his passion. Bartek, thankyou so much and hope everyone else is lucky enough to have him guide you too!

Excellent Tour!

A good idea to do this at the start of your holiday as it will help you orientate yourself with the city.

Our Guide Chris was very informative & was able to answer any questions the group members asked.

This tour covers 500 years plus of Krakow history before the Capital was moved to Warsaw.

Brilliant guide

We did the walking tour of Krakow in the morning ,Bartek our guide showed us lots of places we wouldn't have gone to on our own.After lunch ,we went back and did the Jewish quater,again with Bartek.Most of the people from the morning walk were on his afternoon walk ! He was so good.The Jewish tour prepared us for our trip to Auschwitz the following day .Especially as he left us at 'The Chairs 'which was were they set off from.If you are in krakow for only a limited time,then these tours are a must.
