Alicja was exactly the kind of guide we had hoped for. She double checked with us what we are interested in and gave us recommendations beyond the tour as such. She is knowledgeable and brings across Krakow and its history very well. I can highly recommend having Alicja as your guide in Krakow.

Melissa AndersonUnited States
Alicja was great-we immediately connected with her and found her to be very knowledgeable about the Jewish District and the history of Krakow! She is passionate about her beautiful city of Krakow and at the same time sensitive to some of the tragic history that is associated with it. We learned so much from her and it was great to have her as a guide at Shindler's Factory too. On a much lighter note....she also gave us some shopping recommendations. Thanks Alicja!

Marie-Anne MancioUnited Kingdom
A superb tour. Alicja was extremely knowledgeable and friendly and gave me just the right amount of information to help me understand and remember the history of Poland. She also took my interest in art history into account to tailor the tour and took the time to recommend other sites of interest. I came away with a much greater understanding of the Old Town's history and geography and loved hearing Alicja's personal recollections of life under Communism. Book this tour!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Marie-Ann, Thank you so much! It was a pleasure meeting you. All the best, Alicja
Peter SipkinsUnited States
Alicja was one of the finest guides we have ever used. She was knowledgeable about all of the sites we visited, but she didn't take us to places in which we had no interest. Instead we frequently stopped and she listened to our interests and tailored the tour accordingly. Bright, gracious, informative and a good listener....what more could u ask of a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Peter, thank you! It was a pleasure to guide you and your wife around.
Jerry MannUnited States
I do not have enough superlatives to describe our afternoon with Alicja. From her relaxed demeanor to sense of humor and knowledge, Alicja met our expectations for an in depth tour of the Jewish quarter in Krakow. She has an intimate knowledge of history, of current Jewish life in Krakow and an unmistakable passion for her work. Aside from that, she gave us an excellent recommendation for a restaurant. Hire her—you will not be sorry.
Barry FriedmanUnited States
Alicja knows Krakow and is enthusiastic about sharing it with you. And she's sensitive to your interests, spending more time on them than other things. All told, she conducted a most informative and interesting tour.

Linda DickensUnited States
Alicja was the perfect guide for us in the Jewish Quarter. She had so much information to share. Was able to answer all our questions. We booked it last minute so we were so appreciative she was able to schedule. I would recommend her to anyone.
Alison KarlinUnited Kingdom
We were delighted with our guide Alicja who tailored our tour to exactly what we were interested in and was professional, interesting and really brought out the quirky aspects of Krakow, just as we wanted and hoped for. I'd be happy to use Tours by Locals again and to recommend them highly.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Alison, thank you!
Stephen G.United Kingdom
A great introductory tour of the old town. Alicja has created and delivered a perfect tour here as well as being full of a charming intelligence and sound advice. I was so pleased to start my trip with this.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you, Steve :) hope to see you again in Krakow some day.
George OverendUnited States
We had a wonderful day with Alicja. She was particularly adept at adjusting the pace of our tour to my wife's slowness recovering from back surgery. As I have had such excellent results from more than 25 Tours by Locals guides, I am hesitant to say that any one guide is "The best." I will say--with enthusiasm--that Alicja is equal to the best guides we have been with anywhere and we enthusiastically recommend her to others--without hesitation.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Carol and George, thank you so much!
Hamish McGregorUnited Kingdom

Amanda KleinUnited States
Andrew ChungUnited States
I had to ask Alicja to give me a rushed tour due to my lack of time. I got to understand so much about Krakow's history. The whole city was like an open museum that Alicja was able to guide me through. It was very exciting and hope to see her as a guide again.
Richard HodgesUnited States
I really appreciate Alicja. She clearly has a passion for her work and real subject matter expertise. She is an engaging person and I felt like she went above and beyond the call of duty to make my tour of Krakow special. I highly recommend her. I cannot imagine a better way to spend an afternoon in Krakow. She is truly a gifted guide.
David BayardUnited States
My wife and I are very frequent travelers - over 20 overseas trips the past five years - and we do private tours on most of our journeys. A few of the guides have really stood out as being fantastic and Alicja is one of them - her knowledge, personality and excitement took the tour to a higher level. She had wonderful insights and stories and made our time in Krakow a delight. Thanks Alicja!
Exceptionally nice, creative and knowledgable guide. Speaking fluent English too. We will definitely come back.
