Christopher was a fantastic guide. We did tours to the Black Madonna and Zacopane. He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun to spend a day with. He was on time and he had a set agenda in mind so no time was wasted. We were happy with his plans but I know that he would be able to adjust to requests. His choice of restaurants for lunch was spot-on. We had questions about dinner and transportation and he had good advice. He will be our guide whenever we return to Central Europe
