Our guide was very knowledgeable. Although we requested the tour in English, the group was both English speakers (including people whose first language was NOT English) and Polish speakers. The tour had to be given in both languages, which made it very long. It was a four hour tour. We wished we had taken one tour of Krakow Old Town and another tour of Kazimierz. It was just too much, even for people used to walking a lot and learning about history.

A great trip for those who want to visit Krakow in a relaxed atmosphere. Ms. Ewa told many interesting facts, so in four hours we got to know the city from different sides. Really worth. You will see a lot at a great price for such a dose of knowledge.

It was much better than I assumed when buying a trip. I love Krakow, and after a trip with Mr. Bartos, I discovered it in a completely different, even more beautiful light. Sightseeing in a wonderful atmosphere, not only with a great Guide, but also a wonderful person who knows, loves this city and is able to infect us with his passion. A few wonderful hours (which have passed like a short moment), several dozen / hundreds of wonderful monuments. Billions of beautiful, though sometimes difficult stories, not only about the history of Poland, kings and the Jewish population, but also about our neighbors, friends and "enemies", life in the past, now and in the future. I recommend comfortable shoes, and the rest is a wonderfully told dream, a wonderful journey that I would love to repeat.
