Krakow Old Town Guided Walking Tour
Krakow’s UNESCO-listed Old Town is the city’s most atmospheric district and the best way to explore is on foot. This 3-hour walking tour checks off all the highlights, including the Royal Route and the Wawel Castle complex; the medieval St. Mary’s Basilica and 17th-century St Peter and Paul’s Church; and the historic Cloth Hall.
What to Expect
Meet your guide in Krakow’s Main Market Square in time for a 2pm departure and set out to explore the city’s UNESCO-listed Old Town.

Follow your guide down the Royal Route, and walk in the footsteps of the Polish Kings as you hear about Krakow’s stint as the royal capital. Pause to see historic landmarks such as St. Florian's Church, and admire the grand medieval buildings along Floriańska, Grodzka, and Kanonicza Streets.

Arrive at Wawel Castle and spend time exploring the magnificent castle complex, including the Cathedral, the Royal Chambers, and the Armory. Marvel at the Medieval, Romanesque, Renaissance, and Baroque architectural styles, and take in the views from the top of Wawel Hill, gazing out over the Vistula River and the gold-roofed Sigismund Chapel.

Continue to Rynek Główny, where the star attraction is the 13th-century St. Mary’s Basilica, home to an impressive altarpiece by Veit Stoss, and some striking paintings by artists including Matejko, Mehoffer, and Wyspiański. Nearby, St Peter and Paul’s Church is another important religious monument, build in the 17th century and still the most significant Jesuit church in Krakow.

After enjoying a coffee break (own expense) at a local café, visit one of the city’s most photographed landmarks – the elaborate Cloth Hall and the Underground Museum.

Your tour ends around 5pm back in the Main Market Square.

Anna is a great tour guide

We covered a lot of ground in old town and the Jewish quarter and I felt it was good value for the money. Anna was a charming, interesting, and knowledgeable guide.

I always wanted to visit Krakow; the pictures I've seen in documentaries, in brochures, and online all motivated me to witness the city's beauty in person. When I asked my hotel what was the best way to see the old town, they only had one...More

I hate to say that I was disappointed...

While maybe I am being harsh by giving this just two stars, I felt that the tour was shorter than expected and provided less information than I had hoped. There were only three people on this walking tour and rather than taking 2.5 to 3...More

No it doesn't but it ends just by the castle and the courtyard is free to visit and walk around, you have to pay to get into the museums however.
