When we are travelling to other cities than Wroclaw, we are always on the lookout for some great Free Walking Tours. Very often with these, you have the opportunity to meet nice fellow travellers and mostly the guides are very engaged with the tour as they are fully tip based. If you don’t like the tour, you don’t pay, and if you like it, you pay as much as you think it was worth to you.
Of course we have Free Walking Tours in Wroclaw as well and in this post we will provide you an overview of the different options which are available:
1) The Classic Free Walking Tour of Wroclaw if you have never been to our lovely city, 2) the Free Tour about Jewish History in Wroclaw to take a deep dive into the past and 3) the Free Island Tour, which brings you to the romantic sides of Wroclaw.
What you need to know before the Free Walking Tour in Wroclaw
For all of them, the meeting point is the Aleksander Fredro Statue at the Market Square, you cannot miss it!
