Catering to Incoming Visitors
Local partner in a foreign destination may spare you a lot
of trouble, time and even cost. Krakow’s incoming tour
operators cater to groups as well as individual tourists and
the experience translates into the understanding of the
needs of a visitor, be it holidaymaker or business traveler.
At the same time they know local ways, which always helps
and sometimes proves crucial.
The services of a typical incoming tour operator in
Krakow stretch from guided tours to booking
tickets/hotels to conference arrangements. Mostly they come
as ready, prepackaged products – tried and trusted. On the
other hand, tailor-made solutions are provided as a matter
of course. Actually, in most cases, those eager helpers
would be glad to satisfy any whim of the visitor to Krakow,
however mundane or bizarre, at a price.
