My family really enjoyed our tour around Krakow, very interesting facts were provided along the trip and being our first excursion on arrival to the city, this gave us our bearings and helped us decide what we wanted to go and visit next. The tour guide was extremely friendly, picked us up from our hotel, which was very convenient and even offered to drop us off at one of the attractions instead of having to go back to the hotel.

This was my first time riding a segway and oh boy was it enjoyable! It didn't take very long to get the hang of. Within a few minutes, I felt like a pro. Arthur was a great host who's passionate of Krakow and its history.

Great connection between the musicians - violinist and accordion player. Very lively and upbeat concert!
