What people are saying about Krakow
The tour was very well executed! It was operated by Gr8 Way tours, and our guide was really excellent. We received multiple emails from the booking company (getyourguide) telling us pickup at 6:10 am. We waited and waited. Turns out, Gr8 Way had sent one other email saying pickup at 5:45 am which went straight to junk mail (which I didn’t look for because I had all the info required from the company I booked with). So, obviously we missed that van. We had to push very hard to be allowed on the next tour van who were also missing people. I hope these companies have sorted this issue, because it came very near to ruining our and another woman’s plans, which were all of our main reasons for being in Krakow. If they have fixed this issue, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them for the quality of their tour and guide!
Ziggy was clearly well informed, added interesting insight and interacted with our group. He was very friendly, and made you feel comfortable asking any questions. It was a bit rushed with the slower members of the group falling behind into a second group. Should consider revising the section of the tour through the barracks by the execution wall. Basically repetitively similar cells, and with the crowd and single file lines, you get to a particular cell and it looks like the last. Because the guide’s explanation was several minutes prior , you’re not even sure which cell you’re looking at. Everyone around me felt similarly. There has got to be a better way to manage that, while ensuring the important story surrounding that barracks /individual cells are maintained and included In a meaningful way.
Great tour, comfortable bus. security checks carried out. no bags bigger than A4 size and they are strict! Lockers available at a cost. Got split into 2 groups. Our guide was very informative at Auchwitz but at Birkenow I felt that he rushed through it and ended abruptly. He said that's the end and walked away. The 2nd group started 5 minutes before my group but we were finished about 15 minutes before them. Chilling visit but worth every penny. Hard to comprehend what they poor people went through. Finally we were told not to eat or drink on the bus but on the way back the guide and the driver sat at the front eating and drinking. Looks like rules don't apply to them!
Good trip. Excellent Lokal smoked cheese taste. Beatiful mountain scenery. Plenty of people although it was a low season. Highest mountain 2,5 km. The train to 1.2 meters was great, beautiful scenery. 1962/when I was a child I remember Finnish skiet Mäntyranta won 30 km competition. The center is lovely, lot of food and drink Places. We visited also the thermal Spa. Warm water inside and outside, the bodies felt newborn ! Our driver and guide was excellent.
So glad we done this trip as our tour guide was truly amazing and emotional on this tour I can’t say it was enjoyable as this is not a trip to enjoy but a trip to educate yourselves I would certainly recommend this tour to anyone I know and to anyone reading this review it is something I truly believe everyone should do once in their lifetime
