Excellent tour provided by Christopher who was fluent in English and demonstrated a thorough knowledge not only of the subject but also its context within world and polish history. Whilst at first appearing expensive one really does get what one pays for including reliable, luxury transport, no queues, introduction to a well briefed local guide. My Mother has walking difficulties which Christopher took into account and dropped us off close to the venue. An Unforgettable experience. Thank you

Christopher S organised transport to and from Krakow, and between Auschwitz and Birkenau and arranged a private guided tour. He was extremely reliable and efficient. We left the hotel very early on his excellent advice and arrived at Auschwitz as it opened ahead of the crowds. We were expertly guided round both sites. Christopher S speaks English very well, gave us lots of useful advice, drove us in a very comfortable vehicle, and generally looked after our group of 6 extremely well. Definite 5 stars!

Christopher elaborated a very scenic tour to Zacopane. We really had a wonderful time. He was very attentious and took good care of us all the time. We managed to provide a beautiful location for a sunset to end the tour.

Christopher was a great tour leader. He described everything clearly, showed us lots of things in Krakow and also he was a big help for us. We had issue with our booked apartment and it was very hard to find new stay in new year's eve. We finally got the new apartment thanks to him. We were very fortunate and grateful to have him on our first day in Krakow.

Christopher was very easy to work with, communication was fabulous, and he was most attentive to all of the needs of the group. (We were a group of 10). He made Poland come alive for us as none of us had ever been there before. He was not allowed to be our guide thru Auschwitz which was a bit disappointing but completely out of his control. Would highly recommend him as a guide for your time in Poland.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank You very much dear Katherine for Your wonderful words and time together! I'm happy I could share knowledge, experience, Poland with You as well as important visit to such place. As for guidance inside camps as we talked it is not that I was not allowed but if Auschwitz has available English speaking specialized educators they have priority. And it is often known later. I do it 15 years so I'm happy that full private option worked :) Thank You for all dear Katherine and Family. I hope to meet again!

Christophe met us at our AirBnB perfectly on time and took us to Auschwitz in an immaculate Mercedes Van which was very comfortable. Christophe is a very friendly guide with a genuine interest in people and is extremely knowledgeable. Auschwitz have their own guides and so Christophe was not able to come in with us but he was a great pre-visit and post-visit guide able to answer all the questions which we had. He pre-arranged tickets and everything and also helped us to book restaurants and taxi. 5 stars!

We all enjoyed very much our walking tour of Krakow with Christopher. He is a very personable and friendly guide with an immense knowledge of the city. If we had just wandered around by ourselves we would have missed so much and after Christopher's tour we had a great feel for the city and it's history. Christopher took us through doors into a hidden courtyard and to an amazing place coffee which we would never have found by ourselves. He was also great at suggesting and booking restaurants/taxis for us

Christopher was a great guide! He was a wealth of knowledge of all things Poland and a great conversationalist the whole time. The whole group greatly enjoyed his company and if we ever return to Krakow area we will be working with Christopher again for sure!

Date: Oct 11/19

We spent a wonderful day visiting with St. Faustina and St. John Paul II! Our family was guided by Christopher on an incredible tour that we will treasure forever. Christopher is friendly, engaging, and the consummate professional. Having Christopher as our guide meant that we had none of the usual travel concerns; therefore we could concentrate on what really mattered -- JPII and Blessed Faustina. Our thanks to Christopher and our highest recommendation to others contemplating this tour!

Christopher S. was excellent. He helped us with hotel accommodations plus answered all questions and gave suggestions prior to our visit. We spent two days doing the Salt Mine tour and Auschwitz on the first day and a tour of Krakow on the second day. All of it was extremely interesting and Christopher was an excellent host. We would definitely choose to tour with him again.

Christopher S. was an excellent guide and we traveled so comfortably in his minivan. We appreciated his knowledge and advice so much. Auschwitz was a truly sobering experience... but such an important site .. and something we must all remember so that it never happens again.

Christopher was a fabulous guide. Not only was he knowledgeable about Auschwitz and the surrounding towns but went out of the way to change the tour, at the last moment, when we requested a small diversion. He understood the emotions people have after their visit and discussed them with us. A great guide...use him if he available.

Christopher was our guide for the day when I visited the Jewish Quarter and Auschwitz with my daughter on Thursday 11 July. Christopher was a perfect guide, he was so knowledge and passionate about our tours. I would definitely recommend him and if I was to return to Krakow again, would certainly book him. I would highly recommend him to family and friends, if they were to ever visit Krakow.
