What to expect
Choose from a 24- or 48-hour hour pass to suit your sightseeing schedule, and make your way to one of any 10 stops on the hop-on-hop-off route. Many daily departure times are offered at each stop, so you can spend as much time as you’d like exploring Krakow’s attractions on your own. On board the double-decker bus, select from covered or open-air seating to take in the passing sights, while recorded audio commentary in eight languages provides insight into city history. Itinerary highlights include Wawel Castle –– the former royal residence for Polish kings and today one’s of Poland’s greatest art museums — the former Jewish district of Kazimierz, and the National Museum. Learn about the devastating effects of World War II and Nazi occupation at the former Podgórze Jewish ghetto, Holocaust hero Oskar Schindler’s factory, and the Heroes of the Ghetto Square memorial commemorating victims of the 1943 ghetto evacuation. Continue on to discover the charming squares and streets of Krakow’s UNESCO World Heritage–listed city center with stops at or near Słowacki's Theatre, the historic Railway Station, Planty Park, the Main Square Market, and the medieval city walls including the famous Florian Gate. Admire some of the city’s most important landmarks at Matejko Square, home to the Grunwald Battle monument, and Kościuszko's Mound, a round hill built in honor of national war hero Tadeusz Kościuszko.

Dreadful
Dec 2019 • Couples
Awful trip. I had booked this as my son is currently on crutches after operation and this trip stated accessible for those with mobility problems. The guide to the first stop on the app took us up a long steep slope to wawel castle where we were then told bus stop was nowhere near. Back down the slope and a hike to the radisson badly signposted. Bus was late but runs every 30min. No onboard guide just the driver with a running commentary which was useless. Ended the trip with my son completely exhausted complete waste of time and money

The weather didn't help, but..
Not long back in from doing this tour, and, other than it only being 60 zloty apiece for 2 of us, so a lot cheaper than the competition, it has not left us feeling like we got a great deal.

It has been a dismal day, so we thought a bus tour would let us see all over - our plan was to do the full circuit and then jump off and on in a few places.

The condensation was soo bad that we could barely see a thing, the seats were not very comfortable, and the audio guide (channel 7 for English) was intermittent and fairly poorly written / translated.

There was no "we are about to arrive and stop at x" announcement, just a juddering halt with a tannoy announcement of the location, and the bus pulling away quickly.

We got off where we got on (it seems to sit quite some way from the castle on the Planty for its base) and hoofed it back in the pouring rain to see the castle.

We might have got more out of it by trying to engage with the on board staff, but they didn't really invite that - we were told to go up top when we got on, someone came and sold us a ticket, then headed back downstairs and we didn't see them again till getting off.

Been all over Krakow and not seen a single tour bus
Oct 2019 • Couples
Do not waste you time or money on this company!!

I didn’t read reviews as used them all round the world and expected that same efficient service, compete mistake!!!

The bus stops are extremely difficult to find, we found stop 1 (Wawel Castle) outside the Radison BLu more by luck than judgement, waiting 30mins to be told only 1 bus was running and could be up to an hour. We had a set time for Schindlers factory so ended up getting a taxi. We’ve been in Krakow for 4 days and not seen a single 1 of city Sightseeing buses, extremely lacking signage / directions to stops or staff to provide guidance.
We gave up trying and will be making claim for a refund once Home.

DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY
We have used hop-on-hop-off in many cities but the Krakow version is beyond awful! They have one bus that is in a TERRIBLE condition and half the audio points didn’t work. The schedule is a joke and the stops are incredibly difficult to find.
We also purchased the boat trip - we were pointed in the direction of the river and told if we had a problem ask at the Tourist Information. We asked at the information office - they had no idea! We then went along the boats asking - the first one that knew of the company no longer dealt with them! We eventually found someone to take us - still no sure if it was the correct boat (no signage) but he was very good (one good point).
Use the WOW Krakow - saw lots of their minibuses.

Aug 2019 • Couples
Ignore anything that's wrote on the schedule. You'll be left waiting forever for a bus to show up. The Krakow wow tour was always on time and frequent. We were waiting so long for a bus to show we ended up walking the tour. Truly awful.

Underwhelming
Used hop-on-hop-off bus tour. The seats we sat had no audio, and although we tried a few different seats, no English guide was available. It was rather underwhelming.

We were not expecting a first class service but this service was very poor, the audio was the poorest quality and at times failed to work, when it did it had so much interferance it was hard to work out what was being said.

Dec 2018 • Friends
Awful. Dirty feeling bus with commentary that didn’t sync with where we were. Only one bus every hour and fifteen ish minutes as it was winter, despite the large number of people here for the Xmas market. First stop moved from Wawel Castle, had to ring up to get that info. Bus is too big to get anywhere near the old town or into the Jewish quarter. Use a different hop on service, a walking tour or one of the buggy cars for hire. I’m not sure I’ll use city sightseeing buses again in any country as this one was so bad.

Waste of Money
Dec 2018 • Family
This has to have been the worst hop on hop off tour I have ever done. The commentary is difficult to hear, you are not informed of when they are approaching a bus stop to hop off, the tour is very short and I got off the bus having learnt nothing about the history or sights of Krakow.It was a complete waste of my money and my time.

Having done many hop on/off trips with CitySightseeing and looking forward to doing it during my visit in Krakow I was very disappointed. I booked tickets prior to the trip which has a map and address locating where you were to get on the bus at the first stop (Wawel Castle) however we wandered around aimlessly around the location the map showed. We noticed across the road a man dressed casually in black and holding a small red map and came to know that this was who we were to meet, we asked when the next bus was and he didn't know so phoned someone, we then walked to a point across from the castle with him where he advised us we had to walk through the park and make a left and the bus would be there in '5 to 7 minutes' we started walking and seen the bus and had to run for it as they don't hang about. The tour was very poorly commentated and the audio repeated itself and often gave you info at bits you weren't even at yet or had already passed. We got off to visit Schindlers' factory and returned to the scheduled time that was written at the bus stop, needless to say the bus didn't arrive at that time but half an hour later. The whole thing was very disappointing and the bus had a window missing up the top with nothing covering or protecting it. Would not recommend.
