Really enjoyed the Creepy Krakow Walking Tour. Our guide Elizabeth was excellent, really knowledgable, funny and interesting, we got to see parts of the city we probably wouldn't have come across and heard lots of stories that you don't get in the guide books. A thoroughly enjoyable couple of hours, would definitely recommend.

Met Elizabeth and had a great evening learning about Kraków’s creepy history , she was a great guide and made it enjoyable, would definitely recommend

Worth every penny. A lot of interesting Krakow history, interesting tour all around the old town, doesn’t seem to be lasting 2h.

Although the time of one hour is not enough, we got a great first impression of the city despite the rain.

Great tour for first night got to see city in an alternative way! Good history on creepy side of city!
