The communist side of Krakow was very interesting. Unlike any other tour. We can truly say we had an experience few others will get to enjoy. We saw a whole different aspect of Krakow.

Christopher is an outstanding guide - and the perfect choice for our Catholic tour encompassing St. John Paul II sites in Wadowice and St Faustina's convent and the Shrine of Divine Mercy. He's extremely knowledgeable about the sites, history and subjects, which along with his enthusiasm and respect for these Catholic holy sites really elevated our overall experience. My husband & I highly recommend Christopher.

Christopher our tour guide from Krakow to the Auschwitz-Birkenau Extermination Camp. He was a great guide (and a very good driver!) He was very knowledgeable about Poland's history and pointed out areas of interest along the way. He was very friendly and spoke English very well. His car was very comfortable and very clean. We recommend him very highly.

We enjoyed an excellent tour with Christopher. He met us punctually at our holiday apartment and guided us at a relaxing pace through the Old City. We had the good fortune to hear the trumpeter that plays once daily in all 4 directions from atop the St. Mary's Church tower; check with Christopher when best to start your tour so as not to miss these. We were also most impressed by the Franciscan Church with its fabulous Belle Époque stained glass and interior. We wish Christopher all the best - thank you!

Date: Jun 15/19

Christopher was a lovely guy and told us how to get into Auschwitz etc. However we booked A tour of Auschwitz and Berkanau and Christopher was basically just the driver. We had already booked our tour tickets as we were told they needed buying separately so the "tour" we booked was basically an expensive taxi ride. We could have booked a taxi for a fifth of the price . I would like to say this is no reflection on Christopher but poor advertising on behalf of Tours by Locals.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Yvonne, I am very sorry for this situation My answer for your review is for you to know that I do not want you to have impression to be cheated by me with the price of this tour.... You wrote that price of this tour is to high but please notice that you knew this price almost 3 months before the date of this tour, you accepted this price and you booked this tour in this price. Please notice that in my tour description is described that I act only as a driver for this tour. Best Regards Chris

Our tour to Zalipie, the painted village near Krakov was a gem. Christopher was a very good driver and knowledgeable about the village and it's traditions. The small museum features the decorations inside the homes as well as the exteriors. Christopher and the village each rate 5/5.

I knew this would be a good tour from my first interactions with Chris by email. He was diligent in finding and confirming tickets for our requested date and time, and very specific about the pick-up time and location. Chris arrived promptly at the scheduled time and his vehicle was clean and comfortable. He pointed out local points of interest along the way, and once we arrived in Auschwitz, he was very conscientious in connecting us with the right group and ensuring we knew where to meet at the end.

Christopher was a wonderful tour guide. He speaks perfect English and even lived in the USA for a year so you'll have no trouble understanding him. He has deep knowledge of the history of Krakow and has interesting stories he shared throughout the tour. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anybody hiring a tour guide in the city.

I will strongly recommend doing a tour with Christopher as he is very professional, friendly and very respectful and dedicated to your experience and what you are looking for. I was traveling on my own and chose the "catholic private tour" (Krakow, Wadowice etc.). As a pilgrim, it was important to me to do this tour in a peaceful atmosphere and to have enough time to pray Christopher was very accommodating and tailored the excursion accordingly. I strongly recommend this tour and this wonderful guide!

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.

I have been on many, many tours in my lifetime, but I have to say that the two tours I had in Poland were about the best I have ever had. Christopher , our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable, very pleasant, and certainly knew what people like. Five stars for these tours and five stars for Christopher our guide.

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!
