I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this trip, incredibly well organised from start to finish. We booked a private transfer as my husband is currently on crutches, our driver was excellent and guide was so patient (considering the slow speed to were walking at) and so informative! I’m pleased we had a guide to share her wealth of knowledge with us, she knew just how to pitch what she was sharing! Very moving experience!

I found everything very professional and excellent.

At all times you have been very professional and attentive. The driver was very kind and patient. I hope for us in the end that we wanted to take some photos and it was very friendly. The tour guide was friendly and explained things clearly and with great respect considering where we were. I would totally recommend it to anyone visiting Krakow

Fantastic service

Couldn’t fault our driver, Peter (other than him being a little late, but not his mistake, just slight misunderstanding!) he was very attentive, we didn’t have to do a thing, even queue jumped for us and bought our lunch to save us from having to queue in the short break you get! He was informative on our journey to and from and very knowledgable about Polish history.
