What people are saying about Planty Park

It is highly recommended for travelers like us who are coming to Krakow for the first time. With direct pick-up at the hotel, it took just a few steps to get to the old town. And starting with the trumpeter, in honor of whom the 13 seconds is still played today in all four directions, this magnificent city was brought closer to us. We explored Krakow across all the streets and finally up to the Wawelburg. Just beautiful!

Very good guide, who actually had too much information to tell. All very interesting but because of the large group it was not always easy to follow everything. We bought tickets for the Maria church on the spot, remember that you can only pay cash in PLN. The guide came to pick us up at the restaurant and adapted his route to our wishes.

The guide Aleksandra was really nice and quite an expert. We heard so much of Kraków history with very fluent english in short time. I warmly recommend this guide to everybody.
