Description
See the best of the Old Town around Rynek Główny, including the Cloth Hall and St Mary’s Basilica, and explore the history-steeped, old Jewish quarter of Kazimierz. Sample a classic Polish dessert plus a coffee or soda, and finish at Wawel Hill to see Wawel Royal Castle and Wawel Cathedral.
Start your private walking tour with a pickup from your central Krakow hotel or alternatively, meet your guide in Krakow Old Town. Then, set off to explore the cobbled streets as your guide explains the city’s rich history. If there's anything you want to see more of, just ask. Your tour is private, so your itinerary can be tailored around you.
Head to Rynek Główny, where stately medieval buildings frame a vast cobbled expanse. Hear how it makes up Europe’s largest medieval square, and admire the gothic exterior of St Mary’s Basilica, built in the 14th century.

Explore the cobbled square and nearby lanes to see highlights including the Cloth Hall, Jagiellonian University and Franciscan Church. Each sight has a story, and your guide will chart the attractions’ history as you walk.

Continue to the Kazimierz district, the city’s former Jewish quarter, and hear how it was the hub of Jewish life in Krakow from medieval times to World War II. Stroll past the buzzing shops, restaurants and cafes, and see the exteriors of the Old Synagogue, Remuh Cemetery and Remuh Synagogue. On your wanders, learn about the Jewish community’s contribution to Krakow through the ages, and how Jewish settlers first put down roots here in the 14th century.

Break for a coffee or soda, teamed with a traditional Polish dessert, and then take public transport to the Krakow Castle area of Wawel Hill. Climb the hill as you hear the legend of the Wawel Dragon, and view the courtyards and exteriors of the castle and cathedral as you learn about Krakow’s royals through the ages.

Lastly, admire the views over the Vistula River before your tour ends in central Krakow. Before leaving your guide, feel free to ask for tips on places to visit, and any directions you might need.
