A very interesting trip. Without a guide, we would certainly not get to know so many interesting places and facts from the history of Kazimierz. Our guide, Mrs. Paulina, willingly answered questions that arose during the tour, weaving curiosities and anecdotes into her stories. She was also great at communicating information in two languages, and the entire tour was efficient and well-organized. I RECOMMEND!!!
