Private Tour: Polish Castles Day Trip from Krakow

Start your tour with a pickup from your central Krakow hotel. Meet your private guide and travel by comfortable, air-conditioned minivan into the beautiful Krakow-Częstochowa Upland. This lovely region of rugged limestone formations and forested hills is famous for the Trail of the Eagles’ Nests, (Szlak Orlich Gniazd): a tourist route that winds around 25 hilltop castles, most dating from the 14th and 15th centuries.
Make your first stop at Bobolice Castle, a royal stronghold that dates back to the 14th century. According to legend, the castle is haunted by the ghosts of two women who were imprisoned within its walls centuries ago. Hear the gruesome tales from your guide and snap photos of the castle's beautifully restored exterior.

Next, head to Ogrodzieniec Castle. This eerie fortress sits on the region’s highest peak and is shrouded in mystery. Wander around the reputedly haunted remains as your guide recounts stories of the ‘Black Dog of Ogrodzieniec,’ a ghostly creature said to prowl here at night.
Stop to enjoy your packed lunch when you wish; perhaps before continuing to your last stop, Ojców Castle – a crumbled Gothic fortress built by the Polish king, Casimir III the Great, in Ojców National Park. Hear tales of Casimir and the legends that surround his father, Ociec, from whom the castle is named. After exploring, admire the wooden houses dotting the surrounding slopes before returning to your minivan.
Afterward, travel back to Krakow, where your private tour ends with a hotel drop-off.
