Excellent guide that showed us round the city entertaining us with horrid stories and extra history of Poland - excellent !!
Fun city history tour
Jennifer_C, Mar 2024
Excellent city tour. Not creepy but some dark murder stories. Very enjoyable tour. Lots of history about the city and you get to see a lot of the old town. Very friendly and funny guide.

It was interesting to hear some of the history of Krakow but it wasn't creepy. It also didn't finish up at the Castle as we'd expected and that's what we were looking forward to.
This tour was very enjoyable and lighthearted

No hidden horrors

Informative, the guide had some good stories to tell and relevant sights to see. Some more gruesome than others.
Not so creepy tour
Martin_R, Nov 2023
Tour guide was lovely but difficult to understand most of the time. We didn't find it creepy and we were expecting to finish at the castle, as advertised, however we didn't get further than the main square...
Amazing and atmospheric

Great tour, guide was so knowledgeable and told the most interesting stories. We had a great time exploring the streets of Krakow, hearing the dark tales of the city!!

Not that impressed, unfortunately.... walk was supposed to be 2 hours but ended up being an hour and a half, most of it took place around the old town square, lots of noise and people, didn't help with the atmosphere, .... Not very scary either....
Best walking tour in Europe!
Merrill_S, Oct 2023
If you are on the fence about this tour - do not hesitate, book it! This tour was so much fun and very informative. I have traveled extensively about Europe and really enjoyed getting to hear about Krakow's history and culture through a less traditional lense than your normal tour - all things dark and creepy! Our guide Tomas was incredibly knowledgeable and a character himself, made the whole experience so much fun and very memorable. I would love a recording of this tour because it was that entertaining, cool, and unique.
Lorraine_G, Sep 2023
Absolutely fantastic the young tour guide and I am sorry that I can't remember her name was very clued up telling us all about the shady goings-on in Krakow I would definitely recommend you book this tour.👏

Lots of great creepy stories. Excellent to see krakow from another angle. Excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable.
Interesting tour
Tricia_C, Aug 2023
Interesting stories but unlike a lot of these tours it seemed more historical and not a cartoonish attempt to be scary
Beyond Creepy
Anna_B, Aug 2023
Thomas's knowledge of the history of Kraków extends beyond the Creepy and makes for a great tour. We learned a lot and saw some beautiful spots in the city. A manageable walk.
Great walking tour exploring the darker side of Krakow
Martin_S, Aug 2023
Fantastic experience, our guide Tomasz (Who also created the tour) was well informed and able to get information across clearly, he regaled us with ghost stories, tales of medieval torture, urban legends, and true crime accounts. He was able to bring the stories to life
Good for history buffs
Vivien_F, Jul 2023
Tour Guide was lovely with some great stories but would have loved it to be a bit more ‘creepy’! Good way to see the old town though.
Nice tour
Ronny_T, Jun 2023
Very nice afternoon tour of Krakows dodgy side, meny interresting points of view. Not so scary so could definetly had been more scary and brutal stories, but good fun all in all
This tour was just OK.
Chelsea_P, Apr 2023
We were underwhelmed by this Spooky Tour. Our tour guide's English was not all that great, so it made understanding and following the stories kind of challenging. Also, there weren't many actually spooky stories or places. Mostly, we walked to where old cemeteries used to be and she would tell us that people used to be buried there. A few of the stories were captivating and interesting, but overall, I wouldn't really recommend this tour.
Great walk through the Old Town
Tijn_P, Apr 2023
Nice evening walk through the old town of Krakow. Great guide who had lots of stories to tell, will recommend to friends!
A lovely walk with fun stories along the way.
Linda_D, Mar 2023
This was a fun walk around the Old Town, expertly guided and entertained by Navia. The stories were interesting and included historic as well as modern day events.
Kate_H, Mar 2023
Messages many times to request a meeting place no reply untill the day after with a statement to say ask viator for a refund? Absolute waste of an evening
