    Good value. Guide very...
    Ann_C, Oct 2023
    Good value. Guide very informative and kept our interest. Was shock to find out that it was only discovered in 2005 so relatively new discovery.
    The streets and walls...
    Doris_P, Aug 2023
    The streets and walls from the 13 hundreds And all the artifacts found there. I also enjoyed the explanation of the burning of Krakow.
    Walk through by yourself, don't get a guide.
    Kelli_L, Aug 2023
    Could have done the tour without a guide and got way more information. The tour was supposed to be 2 hours. It lasted 1 hour 15 minutes. Paid a lot for a guided tour and the tour guide didn't speak enough English to teach us much. They skipped past whole parts of the exhibits. Overall disappointed in the guided part. The museum itself was lovely and well planned out.
    Great modern museum in the heart of krakow
    Martin_S, Aug 2023
    Informative museum , very modern with good use of technology to show how Krakow would have looked through the ages. Our guide was very informative
    Precise and thorough
    Hamda_S, Jul 2023
    Adrian was very thorough (knew the answer of seedy question we asked), he kept us engage. In the end we were given the choice of whether we want to stay and visit the videos or go through the exit. I wanted to watch the video out of all the people there and I was allowed to watch the videos from time capsule while he took everyone else the route they preferred. Highly recommend. Have done 3 different excursion through the company and I would highly recommend them.
    Good tour

    Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable made the tour very interesting. Learnt a lot from him about the history etc of Krakow.
    Worth seeing
    melanie_m, Jul 2023
    Very interesting to see the different levels of the city. I can imagine how exciting it must have been uncovering this bit of history
    Good informative tour
    Patricia_D, Jul 2023
    Whilst you can do the underground museum yourself it was useful getting the history, facts and being shown the highlights. The guide was very good. There was enough time once the tour was over to have a look round yourself if you wanted.
    OK trip
    Nick_M, Jun 2023
    Fairly average trip. There were undoubtedly some interesting exhibits. Guide was OK but a little dull. Probably best done self guided!
    Good tour - but could also do the museum independently
    Amanda_H, Jun 2023
    This museum was very interesting and cool! The tour guide was great, but I think a lot of the information we learned was also info we could have read about while walking through the museum on our own. There were English explanations for all the exhibits we saw. The group was very large so it was sometimes hard to hear our guide well (the microphone/headset had a little bit of a delay) and see the displays. I would recommend this tour for guests who like having things verbally explained, but if you don't mind reading and want to spend a bit more time viewing the displays close up, it may be better for you to explore the museum on your own. :)
    Great tour
    Ian_S, Jun 2023
    Just an all round informative, interesting tour with a very good guide who had an incredible depth of knowledge.
    Interesting place
    KatherineA_D, May 2023
    Did this tour on May 19th with an excellent (English speaking) guide. The museum is an interesting place, and the tour was informative and entertaining.
    Natalie_S, Apr 2023
    Very interesting history information about krakow - very knowledgeable guide. Would recommend if you get time
    Informative little tour
    Kevin_D, Apr 2023
    Great little tour during a wintry day. Guide went into very depth detail of all artefacts on show and great detail anout the city.
    Lovely visit
    Sharon_A, Mar 2023
    Lovely experience., would highly recommend this visit. The tour guide was very informative. A lovely place to visit
    Fascinating history
    Nicholas_P, Feb 2023
    Very interesting museum and excellent tour guide. The lady on the entrance desk was not very welcoming however. It was a very cold day so we waited inside for our guide to arrive and she made us feel very unwelcome.
    Do it without a guide
    martin_m, Jan 2023
    Would recommend the museum. Just not with the guide. You don't learn much from the guide that you can't read yourself. And it'll cost about 30% of the price.
    Great guide
    Terry_M, Dec 2022
    Very friendly and helpful guide and very informative, and ready to answer question will use again on our next tour
    Great trip, worth the money
    Lorna_M, Mar 2022
    Very informative and learned a lot more than just visiting on our own and reading the information boards, plus the guide was their to answer any questions we had. Super, thank you!
