This tour was excellent and the tour guide was the best we had for any of the trips we did during our visit to Krakow. The guide was full of interesting information and spoke excellent English. He spoke clearly and guided the group around at the right speed so that we could take photographs and have a good look at everything. The tour was very reasonably priced and the guide was clearly passionate about the subject. I didn't catch the guides name but he said English speakers usually call him Jack. I would highly recommend this tour.
Our guide Maciej was one of the best tour guides we've ever had. So dynamic and engaging. We really enjoyed this walking tour and found ourselves discussing what we had learned in the days afterward as we strolled through beautiful Krakow. Highly recommended.
We met Max and his yellow umbrella as instructed and headed off for our two and a half hours Walkative Tour or should I say Talkative tour....because that boy Max really knows his stuff and has a lot to say about everything on the tour.
What a great tour guide and what a pleasurable couple of hours we had doing the tour. Would thoroughly recommend this tour and if I had had another day free in Krakow I would have definitely taken part in one of the other tours on offer. We did also book in and do the Schindler's Factory tour after having done the first tour of the Old Town and although this wasn't a 'free' tour this I would also thoroughly recommend.
It seems all the tour guides from 'walkative tours' really know their stuff.
Well done to everyone involved.
Took the tour and thoroughly enjoyed it - informative and gave an insight to the history of Krakow, as well as contextualising the culture of Poles and Cracowians. Great weather helped, but there was great balance of information, humour and personal comments about the locations.
Jakub was an absolute star in the tour. I have taken many walking tours as a way to start my visit in a city and this was one of the best! Highly recommended!
Last weekend we had three tours with Walkative and would recommend it to anyone travelling to Krakow! All guides were really funny and friendly, and had all sort of interesting information to share.
First we did the Street Art Tour with Navia und after we were so enthusiastic about this tour we decided to go for the Old Town Tour with Damian and the Macarbre Tour with Jaczek.
Can only recommend the tours and guides, and if we come back to Krakow, we will definitely do a tour again.
I did 2 tours in one day they were so great! First the old town with Mario and then the Jewish quarter with Ania. I have done free walking tours all over Europe and these tours were the best-above and beyond fantastic. Both guides were native Polish, well educated, extremely knowledgeable, and passionate about the tour subject matters. They do these tours full time and are very excited to share their history and culture. I really can’t recommend this company enough! They offer a wide variety of tours. I wish I could do them all!
Came across talkative by accident by overhearing the last 5 minutes of one of their tours at the Gestapo HQ. We decided this was a tour guide not to be missed so we got further details and decided to join him the following day for a most informative and interesting tour of Nowa Huta, the planned communist city that never was (It became a district of Krakow rather than a distinct city).Far and away the best of 5 tours we did in Krakow. This was all down to our terrific guide "Big Tom" Tomasz. His enthusiasm and passion ruled the day! A very personal, detailed and engrossing 4 hours of his shared knowledge and experiences. He lives and breathes his knowledge of and love for Krakow. The experience was like being shown around by a friend and was more conversational in style than a prepared tour script. (...) Thank you Tom!
When arriving in Warsaw and looking for things to do we came across Walkative and decided to go with the communist Warsaw tour as we where staying in the old town.
It was a great decision as there was so much to learn about post war Warsaw and Poland up to the current day.
We got to see much more of the city then we would have just being average tourists and the speak had so much energy and knowledge she really topped the experience!
Would highly recommend if you love walking tours!!!!
Oddly enough, the main town was the last in the various walking tours I have done with Walkative over two trips to Gdansk. There is very little overlap and this one really gives you a solid grounding in the history dating back four or five centuries in some cases. The guide (Macin I think - sorry!) did a wonderful job retelling some of the gore and much of the wonder that’s as old Gdansk. These guides do an amazing job!
We spent a pleasant two hours walking around Wroclaw, visiting significant historical sites to do with the Jewish community and the Second World War. Our guide Lukasz was very knowledgeable and informative and also very friendly. We learnt a lot in the time we spent with him on the tour and saw parts of the city that we wouldn’t have probably come across wandering on our own. I’d highly recommend this tour and would give Lukasz five stars for his knowledge and delivery of the subject matter! Thanks
