For more than 15 years now I've been extremely lucky to be a local city guide and introduce this hidden gem to visitors from all over the world.
I have graduated local Jagiellonian University in Russian Literature and - as Minor - in Law and Administration. I used to work for Diplomatic Protocol Unit of Malopolska Governor and for the largest British charity organisation - The British Council, delivering top class guiding services for VIP delegations, scholars and business clients.
I am deeply interested in culture and history of Polish Jews and modern history of Israel. I specialise in Jewish traces tours and co-operate with March of The Living and Cracow's Jewish Festival.
I often help and assist tourists with Polish backgrounds to find information about their relatives and reconstruct their family tree.
Except guiding, I work as a tour leader and as a translator in English/Polish for business clients.
I hope to guide you here and let you fall in love with Krakow!
A Recent Review of this guide
Fantastic tour with a fantastic guide! Barbara gave great information on our way to/from the salt mines and the concentration camp. The car she obtained for us was terrific and the driver was so polite and very nice. It made the day so much more than expected. Highly recommend this tour and Barbara as a tour guide.
