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.
Bartek is fantastic! We spent 6 hours together and he taught us so much. He provided such great insight to the history of Old Town and the Jewish Quarter. Our trip was made so memorable because of 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
Highly recommend Bartek. He was very engaging and flexible. Learned so much from him about this spectacular city. This full day city tour was perfect for first time visitor. Great itinerary; adaptable to current conditions. His local perspective on many issues were invaluable. Can’t wait to return.
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.
Had a great day. Stopping for cheese was an unique experience. Zakopane beautiful. Had lunch in a great off the beaten path restaurant. Would like to do another tour with this guide.
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.
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.
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!!
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.
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.
