Barbara was prompt, friendly, easy to talk too.Ahead of our tour , she responded quickly to our emails. She went into great detail, was very knowledgeable, and made the tour fun and exciting. The Schindler museum was much more "enjoyable" with Barbara as our guide. We got so much more out of the museum with her tour. This was our first time using Tours by locals and it was great experience. Barbara went above and beyond and spent much more time with us than the actual tour. Fantastic guide in Krakow!!!!!

Barbara gave us a thorough tour of the historically Jewish neighborhood of Krakow, and of the ghetto, adjacent to which is located Schindler's factory. She answered all questions and gave us lots of recommendations as we walked through the Jewish quarter. The tour through Schindler's factory was interesting and somewhat frustrating in equal measure. Barbara kept us moving, sometimes at a pace that was faster than we would have preferred. Barbara is personable and open. We appreciated her tour.

Barbara (and our driver) made our visit to Auschwitz much easier. She oriented us to Krakow (and Poland) on the drive, first to the Salt Mine and then to Auchwitz. She did not accompany us into these sites as she is not a licensed guide at either, but awaited us at the entrances. We appreciated the service.

Barbra did an absolutely outstanding job guiding my son and I to the salt mine and Auschwitz - Birkenau. There wasn't a moment of confusion for us and she had all the tickets, tours, and transportation arrangements perfectly prepared in advance. She was also a wealth of information and answered a lot of far reaching questions. I highly recommend her and I'm sure you will be as pleased as we were.

I enjoyed my morning with Barbara, exploring the Nowa Huta district. The area is off the beaten track; however, thanks to my time with Barbara, I now know that this industrial area of Krakow played an important part in the Solidarity movement's successful drive to rid Poland of post-War Communism. Barbara, a long-time resident of the neighborhood, provided very interesting commentary on local history, architecture, and a personal vision of how Nowa Huta might enjoy a more central role in Krakow's future.

This tour was taken some time ago and have delayed review as I really don't like giving less than 5 stars. Barbara was really lovely and very knowledgeable, and we had an unforgettable day. However we felt the driver drove too fast, and so cannot give 5 stars. Barabara did speak with him and we hope that this issue has now been resolved.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Madam, I have e-mailed a print screen of your review to the transportation company owner and I can assure you he took your comment very seriously. This driver is not working for this company anymore. On his behalf and mine I would like to pass apologies for any discomfort you could feel because of the above circumstances. I would also like to thank you very much for your kind words and great feedback about my work. It was a pleasure to guide you in Poland. Sincerely Yours, Barbara

Barbara, showed us through the Stare Miasto precinct and provided us through her historical knowledge of how and why the city came into being. We were not inundated or overloaded with dates and historical fact, but were given a commentary that clearly explained the cities many fine architectural fortifications, churches, market squares, parks and religious buildings still used today to welcome and accommodate the Pope. We thoroughly enjoyed our three hours together.

If there was a 5+ rating Barbara would surely deserve it. she is an absolutely incredible, knowledgeable, personable guide who thoroughly enjoys imparting her knowledge to you. She went over and above the typical, usual "guide" description. We were fortunate enough to have her for 2 separate tours and were enthralled by her knowledge on both ocassions plus extra time she spent helping us navigate Cracow I heartily recommend her services to anyone visiting Cracow

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ladies, Thank you very much for this great feedback. I hope your trip home was safe and sound. It was a real pleasure to guide you. My Best Regards from Krakow, Barbara

Knowledgable and helpful beyond just the tour like suggesting restaurants and walking us to other places outside the tour and helping us with tickets for additional sites in Krakow.

We had a fascinating tour of the Jewish ghetto and the Oskar Schindler factory and museum with Barbara. Her knowledge of the history of the ghetto is vast. We also peppered her with all kinds of questions about living in Kraków today and her answers were intelligent, educated and well thought. We highly recommend Barbara.

If I could give 6 stars I would. Barbara was an excellent guide with exceptional knowledge on the History of Krakow' & Shindler's Factory. She is a lovely person, warm and friendly and I would recommend her, as a guide, to any visitors to Krakow.
