Damien is a likable and pleasant young man and spoke very good english. He was a careful driver with a comfortable car and it was nice on the long drive to chat to him about Polands past and future and what it is like living in Poland. He showed us a few extra little thing on our tour which were appreciated. You won't be disappointed if you choose Damien for a guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for great review. All the best.

Damien was delightful and compassionate and full of knowledge which he generously shared with us. When I was overcome with emotions after Auschwitz and unable to continue to Berkenau, Damien shared his understanding of the inhumanities of war and some personal family stories which helped me to cope. He is a gem of a tour guide. Highly recommended!

Date: Sep 20/18

Damian made our visit to Krakow exceptional. He created a specialized tour for my family of 6, which he modified along the way to make our tour more personalized to our interests and the walking abilities of my elderly mother. He was extremely knowledgeable, personable and professional. He consistently went above and beyond to make our trip as enjoyable and informative as possible. By the end of our tour, we all felt as though he was an honorary member of our family.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for great review. It was pleasure to meet you and your family. I am glad that I made your trip nicer. All the best. I hope to see you again in Krakow.

Damian did a great job with being flexible and accommodating to our requests because of so so weather. He was a good driver of a wonderfully comfortable Mercedes van, knew short cuts and spoke perfect English. All in all, a great day.

The guide was a first-rate companion during the 2-hour journey to Zakopane from Krakow. We stopped at a traditional smoked-cheese shop while passing through the wood-architecture area. I am very grateful for historical and personal perspective the guide provided on life in this area, and his assistance with transferring my luggage to my hotel for my stay in Zakopane. I enjoyed our conversation of the music, film, and politics in the US and Poland. It was a memorable day. I'd book it again in a heartbeat.

Tour: #408009, Salt Mine Tour, Krakow, Poland    view tour
Date: Sep 7/18

The salt-mine tour is an unusual, fascinating subterranean maze of constrained tunnels and extraordinary open vistas. There are many remarkable works of art throughout, created by professional artists as well as dedicated, talented amateurs. It's a long climb down a very well-constructed staircase, but there are lifts to the surface. Damian was in contact throughout the booking process. He was assertive, yet collaborative, in securing my ticket for an English-language tour that was about to commence.

Exactly as described. Collected from and returned to our hotel in a private car. Damian is very pleasant and helpful and explained where we should go at each site and what to expect. He was waiting when we finished. Under no time pressure to finish.

Damian was everything we hoped to have in a tour guide. He answered our questions about Poland's history along with giving us many interesting facts about life today in Poland. He was punctual in picking us up and flexible with our drop off location. Damian is a pleasant and knowledgable young man and I encourage anyone wanting to take a tour from Krakow to choose him.

Myself and two of my colleagues were in Poland for only one day. We are history teachers who came here specifically to see Auschwitz-Birkenau before a conference we were attending in Normandy. I had a hard time finding a tour that could accommodate our limited time (only the morning). Our guide, Damian, was fantastic, got us right in and helped us get everywhere we needed to be. He was incredibly friendly and really made the day enjoyable, which could have been easily stressful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for nice review. All the best.

Damian was very flexible when we wanted to add one additional person to this tour. He was even willing to leave earlier so we could purchase the correct ticket at Auschwitz. Our guide Wojtek did an outstanding job managing our trip to Auschwitz. He made sure we arrived at Auschwitz on time, got us setup with our tour and was waiting for us when we were done. He even took us to see the "Canada" warehouse, an area most people don't get to visit.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your review. I am glad that you enjoyed our service. I wish you all the best.

This was a deeply personal visit to Auschwitz to stand where my grandparents last walked before they were murdered. Damian facilitated my pilgrimage perfectly, giving me the privacy to say my prayers and the companionship I needed on such an emotional journey. I have no hesitation in recommending him, he has great local knowledge, a host of anecdotes and excellent English. I am already booking for next year.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much. See you in Krakow. Please remember to prepare for cold winter. All the best Damian

Damian proved to be a admirable host with a wealth of information and after our Auschwitz visit he introduced us to a lovely traditional Polish restaurant where we ate well, it was a log cabin type building, warm and welcoming. We went on to see the sights of Kraków before returning to our camping site thoroughly worn out but delighted.

Damian is very knowledgeable and I greatly enjoyed the historical background he provided about the region on the drive. I had a custom tour because of time restrictions and Damian was very punctual at each location and had me at the airport with plenty of time.
