“Our guide Matt was friendly and knowledgeable. He made us all feel safe and secure and created a relaxed vibe while paddling. The sunset was beautiful and we even caught a bit of the tennis on the big screen! Great time.”

“This was one of the BEST tours I have ever done. Our guide, Luis, was fantastic. My boyfriend and I are probably a bit out of the normal age range of the clientele attracted to this experience but we are in good health and very "game" to try anything. It was a long day and we were on the "go" but we loved it. Luis' knowledge was extraordinary and he was quite entertaining while always keeping a responsible eye on all of us. The morning tour to the markets was just the two of us with Luis and that was really special. For the afternoon tour we were joined by 5 more young adults for the pyramids and they were all lovely. Touring the pyramids without a knowledgeable guide would be a mistake. This is a great way to see some of the charms of Mexico City. I highly recommend this company and will do more with them on my next trip to DF.”

ITINERARY

The Palace under the Rams (Palac pod Baranami), our meeting place for this tour, is in itself a great introduction to the merry atmosphere of a Polish Christmas! From the gate stretches an incredible view of Krakow’s traditional Christmas market, which, for the entire month of December, is located in the Main Square, in the very heart of the city. 

We'll start our Krakow Christmas tour with a cup of hot coffee or winter tea in a secret café that’s hidden deep underground. Once we’ve warmed our insides, we’ll head back outdoors and take a walk among the wooden stalls of the market, where you can buy the finest of local souvenirs and handmade Christmas decorations to take back home with you (just leave lots of room in your suitcase!). We’ll stop to sample some regional cheeses like oscypek, and you’ll get to try aromatic mulled wine, served directly from huge wooden barrels. 

We’ll admire some traditional Krakow Christmas cribs, and you’ll learn why they are such an important tradition here. We’ll also visit a nearby gallery, where you’ll learn how beautiful hand-painted glass balls are made. 

To finish off your Krakow tour, we’ll warm up in a local restaurant that’s known for serving the best festive dishes of the season. You’ll get to dig into your plate as your local guide tells you all about Christmas traditions in Krakow and throughout Poland, both today and back in communist times.
