Chris our driver was great. He picked us up from the hotel on time and drove us safely to Krakow, stopping once for a comfort break. Chris gave us a map and suggested a route to walk around the town. At Auschwitz he escorted us to the front of the queue prior to the tour starting. He was waiting in his car after the tour and again drove us safely back to the hotel.

Karol, my driver was the kindest person. Very considerate, made sure I was always comfortable, very aware of time and the schedule. Everything flowed great that day. My tour guide in Kracow (cannot remember his name, so sorry) was so knowledgeable and pleasant. Great trip

I’m definitely not a tour-taking person, but my colleague thought it would be a good idea. She was right!! Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable! We learned many new things about Warsaw. Loved the diversity of our group. I would totally do it again.

This tour is a absolute must have for anybody visiting Warsaw. Just going to the museums is not enough. Our guide Marcin is extremely knowledgeable and a pleasure to be around. Highly recommended.

Our sightseeing could not have gone better. Karol took great care of us. He was a pleasure to be around and made sure we were informed about everything. We would definitely suggest this tour.
