What to expect
  • Await pickup at your Krakow accommodation between 8:30am and 9:30am — the exact pickup time is confirmed closer to the tour date. After a 1-hour journey to Wadowice, the birthplace of Pope John Paul II, you’ll take a sightseeing tour of the pretty town and learn about the early life of the Catholic figure. Then, proceed to Kalwaria Zebrzydowska, which sits at the foothills of the rugged Carpathian Mountains, to visit its Baroque 17th-century sanctuary. A designated UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its architectural beauty, the basilica is considered the second most important religious site in Poland after the Black Madonna.      Your third stop is the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy, home to the tomb of St. Faustina, who saw a vision of Jesus in 1931. Admire the white marble coffin and religious art, and opt to ascend to the top of the church’s tower for spectacular city views. Your tour concludes with drop-off at your Krakow accommodation at around 4pm.

I am impressed with Krakow Shuttle because of ease in making reservation and instant confirmation. What I really like about them is that I have the option of paying upfront online during reservation or just giving the payment to the driver. this is very important because it does not tie you up especially when plans change.

I would especially commend our driver Maciej Puchela. Maciej is very pleasant, professional, fun, speaks English very well and knows a lot of things - like where to buy Polish Pottery, amber and authentic Polish Restaurants.

I would like to thank Krakow Shuttle for a wonderful experience in Krakow!
