Very helpful and kind guide. He always tried to satisfy me in all my requests. He was very nice and prepared. The only thing is that the site speaks of an Italian guide instead it is English but maybe it is due to the fact that I booked 8 hours before making the visit. I still recommend it

Heart touching

The visit to the Pope's homeland was one of the highlights of my visit to Poland. The tour was very well organized and the driver who took us was an authentic guide! Thank you Marek for your follow up. He was always telling more stories than we saw. The sanctuary of divine mercy is equally wonderful. I advise this tour to everyone
