Grand City Tour is the extended version of sightseeing in our offer, we recommend it especially to all those who want to see the most compelling parts of Krakow in a day. The tour will take you through the history of the city from the beginning of its creation to modern times. We start from the oldest district of Krakow, the Old Town. Then we visit Kazimierz, the Jewish quarter from where we go to the former ghetto, Podgorze where the KL Płaszów concentration camp was established during WWII. The trip includes the entrance to the Eagle Pharmacy museum and the Oscar Schindler factory. We visit the museums in the middle of the sightseeing programme where there is also a break of about 20 minutes. The trip includes three such breaks where we stop for a moment to stretch our legs, drink coffee or use the toilet.
The last part of the tour will tell you about the communist times that once befell Krakowians hence the district called Nowa Huta (New Steelworks) on our route. In the end, we visit the place where the aviation museum in Krakow is located. We cruise the city in small groups by comfortable minivan with a professional English speaking driver, listening to the recordings in a previously chosen language. The audioguide available in 7 languages tells an engaging story and various curiosities about the points on the route. We fully equip and prepare our vehicles for hot and rainy weather so nothing can stand in the way.
