Our final day with Chris was excellent. Chris was a great guide and drove and toured us through the Catholic sites. Unfortunately we weren't able to tour the churches as thoroughly as we would have hoped due to the crowds attending Sunday Mass. If we had this as a do over we would not have done the Catholic tour on a Sunday! We did enjoy the whole trip today but especially the tour of Pope John Paul II home and museum. A favorite for sure ! Thanks to Chris our tours in Krakow were A++. -Bob & Lee Robida
