How it works

Join City Walks Krakow for our award-winning Krakow Walking Tours. Our free tours are free to join and are contributions based. Our hardworking and dedicated guides earn money from tips. If you enjoy yourself, be sure to leave something at the end of the tour. The great thing about free tours is you can decide for yourself at the end how much you are happy to pay.

COVID-19 info

We’re back!!

We returned in June 2021 to run our award-winning Krakow free walking tours.

It’s been a long road but we are thrilled to be able to offer tours to our guests again.

For now we will only have our Krakow Old Town free tour (11am) and our Jewish quarter Krakow free tour (15:30). Please check our schedule for the days.

However, COVID-19 isn’t gone for good. Please help us to make sure our guests are kept safe. Guests joining our tours are welcome to wear face masks for the safety of yourself and others around you. However this isn’t compulsory in Poland.

Where possible, maintain a safe distance from others around you, and our guides will do everything they can to avoid any crowds.

Tourism is returning but it’s not quite back to normal. That means unfortunately if no one turns up then our tours can’t run! To ensure your place and avoid any disappointment, we recommend booking in advance for free through our website. Booking isn’t compulsory, but it guarantees your place. Scroll up to the ‘How to book’ section of this page.

If you have concerns over joining our regular group tours, we recommend to try and arrange a private tour with us. Alternatively, download our- ‘Historic Krakow: Old Town & Castle Krakow audio tour‘ – and be guided around the city using your phone.

For the time being, our guides will greet you with a welcoming smile, rather than a hearty handshake!

Stay safe & enjoy your time in Krakow.  The City Walks Krakow Team
