Christopher's command of historical Poland has made me an ardent fan. There are so many in depth stories and books that I did not even know existed. When we arrived back home to the U.S. I have started researching all the history from dates ranging to the Battle of Vienna in 1683 to the Warsaw Uprising. We have been very uninformed in the U.S. as to all that Poland has done for the west. Thank you to Christopher for the deep knowledge of Polish historically events and connections to the world!!!

Christopher's knowledge base really shines through. We had a bit of rain early on so Christopher used his van to help us move about. We were able to see the Jewish area as well as Wawel Castle and Old town. A lot of ground was covered in 4 hours. He was able to answer in depth pretty much any question we had. We really enjoyed some of the background stories of all the places we saw.

Third great tour with Christopher. Stunningly memorable views of the Tatra range from both sides of the Polish-Slovak border. Fortunate to attend Sunday Mass at a local Slovak church, & a very good meal at a pleasant restaurant. Then on to the Polish ski town Zakopane, with its bustling markets of local treasures. Refreshing stop at a nice sweet shop for a pot of tea and cream cakes, a must-taste local favorite. Throughout the day, Christopher was attentive, engaged, & a passionate advocate for the area.

I appreciate his knowledge of the area - we learned a lot about the history and culture in a relatively short time with him. Most of all, Krzysztof is fun, considerate and professional.

Christopher is amazing but the Salt Mines are not so great. The Tour took 2.5 hours and 1 hour would have been enough. Also its a lot of walking. We probably covered 3 Km so make sure your group is up for that. Your guide can't come with you, you have to use the Salt Mine guide so you might as well take a taxi there, or ask a ton of questions on your way there and back to make it worth while to have a qualified guide with you in the car.

I cannot recommend strongly enough Christopher S. as a tour guide. He built a special itinerary for me when I was coming to the area to trace my family roots. His communication when building the itinerary was fantastic, very prompt and full of great ideas. He made sure that I also did not miss some of the other "must see" sites in the area. The day of my trip was all that I could have ever hoped for. Absolutely amazing! He is a true professional and I can't imagine a better guide.

We were unsure what to expect when visiting Poland, and decided a guide was our best bet. Christopher was very easy to communicate with prior to our visit, and helped planned a couple days worth of activities. He was very helpful in navigating ticket purchasing, which lines to be in and transportation. Very knowledgeable about the history in Poland (and in general), and was able to provide us with some very good information.

Second, 7-hour tour with Christopher over a 2-day period. Christopher was every bit as professional and accommodating as the previous day. As a lifelong New Yorker, I was deeply impressed how deftly Christopher negotiated the Good Friday traffic challenges inherent in visiting the sites associated with Poland's Native Son, John Paul II, one of the towering figures of the 20th Century. The day was a perfect blend of anecdotes, historical perspective, reflection, and personal pilgrimage. Sincerest thanks.

Well beyond the minimum one would expect from a professional guide (punctual, courteous, engaging , knowledgeable, and eager to be of service), Christopher was a first-rate companion on this seven-hour tour. Christopher was sensitive to my personal interests and wishes, eager to tailor our day to meet my needs. I very much enjoyed our conversations about Poland's history, and what the future may bring. I now have a better sense of a local's perspective on Krakow's place in this history. Sincerest thanks."

A huge thank you to Christopher for making our trip to Auschwitz so informative. His knowledge on not only the camp but Poland is outstanding. Would definitely recommend this tour. A little tip is make sure you book well in advance and go early. We got to the camp at 8am and felt like we were the only ones there. Also spend the extra money and get a private tour. Thanks again Christopher

Christopher was great -with only a short time in Kraków he left us wanting more. Very easy going and relaxed. He took us to a great library cafe that we would never have found and the restaurants he recommended for dinner were amazing. If you are coming to Kraków consider allowing 3 or 4 days, we only had 1 day with Christopher and after him sharing his knowledge of this beautiful city we left without seeing so many more things of interest. Have at least 2 days with Christopher if you can

With only a day to visit sites in Krakow, we hoped our guide could be flexible and give his best suggestions. Christopher did both! I can't believe we covered so many of Krakow's important sites and also received his personal knowledge from growing up in Krakow and his university work in tourism. He took us to places large tour groups could never go and shared personal experiences from his family having lived under Russian occupation. Christopher has a real gift for gauging touring needs of his clients!

Christopher made the visit to Auschwitz hassle-free. He takes care of the driving, buying tickets, and transportation between the two camps. He provides good commentary and good conversation during the ride to/from the site. At Auschwitz, he is not allowed to guide inside the camps, so he must turn you over to an Auschwitz guide, but that worked out fine for me.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You dear Stephen for so good words aof review! I'm happy I could meet You. In Auschwitz Birkenau in fact I am allowed to guide inside but while requesting admissions they decide who guides insideon particular day according to their schedule, number of visitors, other regulations they have... so priority always have their museum workers. Simply speaking all depends on the museum and sometimes they decide that I have to and can guide inside. Thank You again Stephen for meeting You and appreciation!

We had a delightful rather chilly, late October Friday with Christopher. He met us at 9:30 at our Florianska hotel, told us a bit about the Gate and wall at the top of the street, moved us into the Market Square where we heard the trumpeter at 10:00. We spent the day together, had a wonderful tour that introduced us to all the main sights in Krakow and came away feeling that we had made a friend.

Wonderful experience! Christopher is informative, engaging and extremely good company! Not only did he know a great deal about local sites and history, he had a wealth of knowledge on any topic raised. I look forward to my next visit to Poland and would not hesitate to contact Christopher again for tours, transfers and recommdations.

Chris was probably one of the best tour guides that I ever had. He was extremely friendly, super knowledgeable and really eager to make sure that we learned all about his beautiful city. He gave us several restaurant recommendations and they were all fabulous. As a world traveler myself, we were able to converse about the different countries and places that we had been. The seven hours flew by. I hope that I will be able to tour with Chris again sometime soon. Loved the entire day. Ricki H

Christopher drove us to Auschwitz for our tour. He was not permitted to be our guide at Auschwitz but he gave us a lot of information during the drive. He was very flexible when we decided we also wanted to visit the Wieliczka Salt Mines after the Auschwitz tour. We would definitely use Christopher if we ever visit Poland again.

TOURSBYLOCALS RESPONSE: Please note, Christopher was not permitted to be the guide at Auschwitz as the site has its own guides, and no one else is allowed to give tours inside.

Christopher gave us an awesome tour of Krakow. Krakow has some cobblestones, and my wife has a hard time walking on them. Christopher took that into account and gave us a tour we could see. It was tailored for us and was perfect for us. I got to see all the regular stuff, and my wife saw what she could and we got a wonderful history lesson and appreciation for the area. Christopher explained everything well and is very personable. We couldn't have had a better tour or tour guide.

Christopher was totally awesome. He was punctual, courteous, conscientious, and helped us get all we needed. He arranged the wheel chair for my wife, helped me choose books because I like references etc. He knew answers to all my questions, and the ride was comfortable. He told us what to expect and knew all about the history of the region etc. It was most helpful, for what is a poignant experience. Christopher speaks English well. Auschwitz was the highlight of the trip for many of us, so thanks

Christopher worked out a four day tour of Poland for me. We did a day tour of Krakow, a trip to Warsaw, plus trips to Czestochowa, Slovakia and Zakopane. All trips were customized in advance to show me what would be most interesting to me not a cookies cutter one tour fits all approach. Christopher was very informative and entertaining providing me with a wonderful trip. I highly recommend him you will not be disappointed.

My stop in Krakow was unexpected and for only one day, so I had not researched the town or its history.
