Full description
Avoid the usual sightseeing tours and discover the highlights of Krakow with a family-friendly private guide. Swap boring historical facts for intriguing legends and fairy tales to keep your kids entertained at all times. Marvel at the monuments of Main Market Square in the historic Old Town, along with other landmarks such as St. Mary's Basilica and Wawel Cathedral on Wawel Hill where the Kings of Poland set up residence in the 17th century. Try to defeat the legendary Wawel dragon to look inside his amazing cave. Hear about events from the Middle Ages and learn about the more recent history of the city along the way. Opt for the 3-hour tour option to check how actually confectioners are doing candies. Sugar artists will show you the art of hand-made sweets in their factory. After this, taste still warm candies and get them home. If you choose the 4-hours version, enter the Historyland. It’s very modern place where the history is shown in a unique way - by LEGO bricks! Let kids find themself in the heart of events and learn the history of Poland by models built from LEGO bricks and interactive solutions.

    As a family with 2 children (10 and 7) we were looking forward to a “family-friendly”, or child-friendly tour through Krakow. The German-speaking guide was friendly and tried to show us the most important sights, but unfortunately his explanations were by no means "child-friendly", but rather overloaded with details and a wealth of information that we as adults could hardly follow. Unfortunately, the tour lacked any childlike orientation and, in our view, was no different from a "normal" city tour. In terms of content, it was certainly flawless, but a lot to overload for our taste. However, we were happy to see the beautiful sights. Maybe this tour is family-friendly with another guide, but unfortunately it wasn't with ours.
