The tour is available all year round. On Sunday, we suggest that you start exploring after 12 due to morning Masses. Also we suggest not visiting on Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath, because synagogues and cemeteries are closed. Ask first about the opening hours which change according to the season
People in wheelchairs cannot visit the Sigismund Bell and the crypt in Wawel Cathedral (lots of stairs and no ramps in buildings) and may encounter a little inconvenience in the Remuh synagogue and at the cemetery due to entrance thresholds and uneven sidewalks.
This is a wireless system for tour groups giving all participants in the group the opportunity to listen to the explanations of the guide in the same way regardless of the distance from him (the average transmission range is about 100 meters, and each participant has its own receiver), the system provides comfort when sightseeing and the ability to move freely in locations where silence is expected.
You will be under the care of licensed and experienced guides. We have worked with them for many years, and many surprising and unusual situations have proved that we can rely on them.
