This is my third tour with Krzysztof. He arranged my transport and ticket to the Auschwitz Museum with skill & great communication. Booking the same guide on two holidays in Krakow shows my confidence that the day will go smoothly, which it did. The museum guide at the camp was tireless, providing an overview of the horrific Nazi killing apparatus in the 3.5-hour tour of the two death-camp sites. There's much walking, crowded corridors, and bleakness to the day, as one would expect. Memorable & chilling.

We had an outstanding city tour of Kraków. Christopher was extremely knowledgeable and a delight to be with. He entertained us throughout the day with fascinating historical stories. His knowledge of the Jewish history was particularly enlightening.

Christopher was our driver for the day to the camps and to the salt mines. He spoke excellent English and explained that he would be the driver and someone else would do the guiding at the camps as well as at the salt mine. It was a long day but very informative. I would recommend him to other travelers.

The driver was excellent. I think the title of 'Private Tour for Two' is misleading because all Chris was able to provide was transportation service. We were then added to a large group to tour the Salt Mine.

My second tour with Christopher, a picture-perfect day in the Tatras. At the start of our day, at the funicular, I realized I'd forgot my wallet at my hotel. Christopher immediately proposed a well-conceived plan to continue the tour as well as collect my wallet; it all went well in the end. An eclectic mix of stunningly beautiful scenery, visits to churches associated with local history and John Paul II, and a refreshing stop at a patisserie for tea & cream cakes (a local treat), it was very enjoyable.

I was very pleased with all aspects of this booking. The Holy Week celebrations in Poland meant scheduling adjustments and some creative thinking. Christopher proved particularly adept in promptly proposing alternatives; his immediate, clear, and clever responses to my questions were greatly appreciated. The tour itself was informative, well-paced, and efficiently planned. As one would expect, Christopher was prompt, courteous, and provided first-rate service. I appreciate such a worry-free experience.

Christopher was a great guide - he shared background about life in Poland, the area, history, places to see, eat, and just absorb the city, and got us tickets to an English tour at Auschwitz-Birkenau on short notice/holiday weekend. I strongly recommend booking a private driver like Christopher. The camps need time and space for thinking, and thanks to a private ride we had that. We would definitely book with Christopher again, and recommend him to others. A super-nice and knowledgeable person!

Our final day with Chris was excellent. Chris was a great guide and drove and toured us through the Catholic sites. Unfortunately we weren't able to tour the churches as thoroughly as we would have hoped due to the crowds attending Sunday Mass. If we had this as a do over we would not have done the Catholic tour on a Sunday! We did enjoy the whole trip today but especially the tour of Pope John Paul II home and museum. A favorite for sure !

On our second day with Christopher,his only task was to drive us to & from Auschwitz and wait for us while we toured the Auschwitz and Bierkenau death camps . Christopher was a good and safe driver and he pointed-out various points of interest along the route. On the way back, Christopher was kind enough to stop so we could buy lunch. Throughout this day, Christopher was pleasant, courteous and professional and answered all of our many questions. Looking forward to day 3. Bob and Lee Robida

Krzysztof (or Chris) was our guide over two days to Auschwitz and Wieliczka salt mine. A thoroughly knowledgeable and pleasant gentlemen who provided very informative facts on these two areas. Auschwitz of course was emotionally unsettling, but something we had to experience, and the salt mine an eye opener as to the engineering skills of the early Polish miners in extracting the salt "gold". Chris although unable to guide in these locations provided more info driving us there.

The price for this tour is for transportation to Auschwitz and back. The driver is also a registered guide, and will provide very good information along the way, and back. Once at Auschwitz you will need to pay a separate entrance fee for entry and guide at the camp. Once done Christopher will pick you up at Birkenau. Christopher is a very friendly guide, very knowledgeable, and he speaks excellent English. I would recommend him.

We were visiting Poland for the first time from Canada and would highly recommend Christopher B. as a great ambassador for both Krakov and Tours By Locals. He was warm, friendly, spoke excellent English and was very responsible and dependable. We had 3 days - walking tour of Krakow & salt mines, Zakopane Mt., Dunejec Gorge rafting. Would not recommend the Zakopane visit unless you have young children or love tacky souvenirs. Gorge rafting was pleasant and scenic but tour only in Polish. Pity!

Christopher is an excellent guide with a bubbling enthusiastic personality who transported us in a van to the Saltmine tour. Once at the Saltmine the local tour guides take over. I enjoyed the Saltmine excursion but my wife was not as enthusiastic with the very long steps down into the mine or the close quarters in the corridors. Chris is a great guide but his talents are better displayed on one of his other guide offerings.
