This also happens to be one of the most important museums in Poland, housing large collections of paintings, graphics, sculptures, fabrics, military items, porcelain, and furniture. Walk through chambers and halls, displaying famous tapestries, magnificent Renaissance Italian paintings, and collections of tents!

Eva was a fantastic guide. Everything work to perfection, the organization, the punctuality, the audio equipment ( great to have your own headsets to hear the guide as she was right there with you). I was never a fan of group tours, but this was very well organized and I loved loved it from beginning to end. I highly recommend them.

Krakow is a wonderful city and Wawel Castle and Cathedral were full of interest and history. Our female guide, whose name I can't remember, was super and made the complex history of Poland very easy to follow. I loved all the stories, the many styles of architecture, the great leaders of Krakow and Poland. I would highly recommend the experience and the booking process was incredible easy
