Bartek was exceptional. He was patient, informative and flexible - without being over the top or annoying. I am not usually into tours, shying away from busses as though they were the plague. This type of tour was perfect. Bartek knows Krakow in every dimension, as we drove out to Auschwitz we discussed other things, and as a result we hit the Jewish quarter on our return. Take a tour with Bartek - you won't be disappointed.

Bartek was brilliant. Extremely informative and speaks great English. He took four of us to Auschwitz-Birkenau and the Saltmines. He translated for us during the tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau as it was extremely busy. I was aware of this beforehand so not a problem. He also took us to a lovely polish restaurant for a late lunch. Comfy clean car and safe driver. Thoroughly enjoyed his company. Highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Shelley for your great review. I am happy that you like the tour and the restaurant.

Tour: #441393, Communist Tour to Nowa Huta - Half Day, Krakow, Poland    view tour
Date: Dec 17/18

If you have time, see NH. It is a fascinating place; a "communist city" built from the ground up. Was not gloomy as I had thought. You need a guide otherwise you would not know where to go and what to see. With few landmarks, most structures look similar. Bartek did a fine job explaining NH's communist past, weaving its past to its present. His willingness to share his family's stories about life behind the Iron Curtain and in today's Krakow added so much more to the tour. Highly recommend Bartek.

I did the tour to Austwitz with Bartek. He arrived at the hotel at the fixed time. We went to Austwitz in his own car which was confortable, clean and in good conditions. Bartek demonstrated to be very knowledgeable during all the tour doing his best to satisfy us and very flexible to accommodate to our needs. His is very friendly person, polite, good sense of humor and easy smile. He is an easy ongoing guy which in my opinion is very important for a relax day. I highly recommend Bartek as guide in Krakow

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Eduardo, thank you for your warm words. Have a good time in Warszawa

Bartek is an excellent guide. Our group of five from the the U. S. Found his English excellent. He has a great command of his subject matter and the ability to deliver it in an interesting and insightful way. The pace made our day relaxing and enjoyable. Our tour was a wonderful learning experience.

Tour: #441393, Communist Tour to Nowa Huta - Half Day, Krakow, Poland    view tour
Date: Aug 1/18

This is a tour which complements the other tours on offer and is not in any way a positive take on the awful communist era but the see in concrete what they actually did. I would have liked to see the mainly mothballed steel works but we did the tour by Tram and walking not by car. Our guide provided comprehensive commentary from both an official and personal viewpoint. I can highly recommend this tour.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Roger, thank you for your comment. Have a nice trip to Warsaw:)

Bartek provided us with an outstanding tour of old town Kraków. His knowledge of the city and of Poland is exceptional. We had a travel hiccup which could have — but ultimately didn't — affect our tour and he was available and accommodating throughout be email. Bartek clearly loves his city and was able to provide historical context along with insights about modern Poland. We appreciate his expertise and would tour with him again.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Stephen, thank you for such a nice comment. Once again when you will visit Poland we must go out somewhere.:)

Tour: Auschwitz Birkenau Visit, Krakow, Poland
Date: Jul 26/18

Bartek was an excellent tour guide. He was most affable and we had a lovely conversation. We also discovered a cemetery that we knew nothing about and learned a great deal of history about the Jews in the 1760s who were buried there. The caretaker opened the cemetery for us and gave us a tour which was a real bonus! He asked for no payment and actually opened a mausoleum which had the headstones of famous Jews from his small town. What a bonus. I'd use him again as a guide in a heartbeat! Thank you!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Alyanne, thank you for warm words. I really appreciate our conversation and all good advices you were telling. God bless you:)

Our guide Bartek was great. He emailed me before we arrived in Krakow, confirming day by day touring plans. He made suggestions for music events and sights, bought tickets in advance, and secured transportation. During the tours he was insightful and knowledgable, helpful with walking directions and always thoughtful. 5 star recommendation from our small group.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Susan, Thank you for warm words. You guys are so nice. Thank you for inviting me for lunch and good luck in the USA

The hardest tour I had to do in Poland being Polish it was difficult to enter a site like that and see what was in it, overall the driver was amazing and lovely, the tour guide in Auschwitz amazing job and overall great tour but something I wouldn't do again to the fact Auschwitz is a taunting place

This tour was the highlight of our stay in Poland. The drive from Krakow to Zakopane through southern Poland is beautiful. We customized the tour to include a nice hike along the way. And Zakopane is a nice place and the Tatra are beautiful. What really made this tour were Bartek and Tomas. What great guides. Very helpful in making arrangements and accommodating to what we were interested in doing. And very fun and knowledgeable to travel with. You will not regret it. Just contact them.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your kind words and this great feedback!Bartek and Tomasz
