Bartek has first-rate knowledge of Krakow's history. He was interesting, informative, and always had good stories. Most importantly, Bartek knew the most important sites and streets to show us, including places we most certainly would have missed if we had been on our own or part of a larger tour. This included the pew where Pope John Paul II prayed when he was a bishop and the library where Copernicus studied. Bartek has a friendly, pleasant personality. We recommend him highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Rick, Thanks for your review. I really enjoyed your company and funny selfie movies around the castle in Krakow :) Thanks for your invitation for a dinner. I wish you good rest of your vacation in Israel.

Date: Oct 25/19

This is an enthusiastic review for Bartek L. We hired Bartek to take us to and from Auschwitz-Birkenau one day and to give us a private city tour of Krakow the following day. He was able to get us tickets to an English speaking tour of Auschwitz-Birkenau when all other options had failed us. (The Museum was sold out—all tours must be through the museum.) Bartek was patient enough to allow us an extra couple hours to explore Birkenau on our own after our official tour ended.

I highly recommend Bartek as a guide. He was quick to respond to many questions I had before I booked the tour. We spent a whole day with him and greatly enjoyed his company, learning a lot about Krakow & Poland. Although he was unable to personally guide us around Auschwitz & the Salt Mines, he was able to add further detail, which enhanced our experience. He is very knowledgeable, polite and helpful.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ruth, Thanks a lot for your great review. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the tour.

Bartek was fabulous, AND extremely pleasant to be with. He is incredibly knowledgeable about Krakow. For three days he toured us to the highlights and nothing was too difficult for him. He was also flexible re timing so it made our days enjoyable. We enjoyed some great restaurants, thanks to him and also his referrals. Bartek, we'll refer you to anyone we know who is visiting Krakow and Zakopane.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Larry, Thanks for a great comment, I wish you had a great time in Italy as well :)

Bartek was very informative and wasn't concerned that it probably took longer than originally planned. He was an excellent speaker in English and recommended some great restaurants which we went to. Our group of four would all recommend him as a tour guide - he drove us to our places of interest at Auschwitz and the Salt Mine - highly recommend this tour while in Krakow. All positive!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Aimo, Thanks for a great comment. We had a great time. It was nice meeting you.

Bartek did an excellent job arranging our visit to Auschwitz, and other sites in Krakow. I had earlier read reports of visitors being frustrated by waiting in long lines there, but we had none of that, and Bartek perfectly handled the advance reservations needed with the official guides at the camp - getting us to the exact spot to meet the official tour. On the way to and from Auschwitz he provided us a wealth of information on this difficult subject. We were completely satisfied with our experience.

Fantastic tour of a quaint village with wooden houses, a fantastic cheese tasting and a very nice, easy elevation but moderate length hike through a beautiful valley. Bartek is an outstanding and flexible guide with great knowledge as well as good sense of humor. We felt very well taken care of! Highly recommend Bartek for any tour he offers!

On top of that, he was very likable and interesting person to talk to. As a group of 13 persons, we spent wonderful two days with him, seeing most of Krakow. Totally recommend!

I was hesitant to book a tour without first hand knowledge of the tour company and operator. But - Bartek was excellent! He spoke supurb English, was very informative and made the whole trip interesting for the entire family. Bartek was dependable and knowledgable - and I give him our highest recommendation! I will look to book him again if we are lucky enough to return to Poland!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Richard, Thanks a lot for your warm comment. It was pleasant to meet all your family and spent with you that day. Once you return to Poland let me know and we could go out even for some coffee. I wish you the best.

Bartek was waiting for me in the lobby of the hotel 5 minutes before his arrival time which was GREAT. He is very very friendly and outgoing. We have a lot to talk about during our trip to Auschwitz and the ride was much more pleasurable because of this. He is extremely knowledgeable of this tour. And whatever he did not know he would find out for me. He has a fantastic personality and is a GREAT addition to anyone who needs a solid local tour guide for Krakow and the surrounding area.

I cannot speak highly enough and strongly recommend Bartek as a choice for your guide We went to Auschwitz - Birkenau he sorted out our tickets in advance and dealt with museum staff on arrival and arranged a local restaurant to have a much needed break before moving onto Birkenau where he was able to act as our personal guide of the camp He stayed with us for a second day to act as our guide to the Jewish Quarter and Old Town of which he is very knowledgeable adding much to the experience

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ian, Thanks for your comment. It was a pleasure to meet you. I was happy to arrange the break for you in the middle in Auschwitz. All good for 4 of you:)
