Great tour guide but,,,

The young chap who picked us up was obviously in a tearing hurry to collect the other clients and drove far too fast on small streets around krakow,, scared the living daylights out of all of us, only when we left the city did he slow down and that was because of heavy traffic,,, nice young fella but drove the van far too fast.

Very informative and sad day. Our driver was brilliant and the air conditioned mini van was a godsend on such a warm humid day. On arrival we were took straight in were we met our guide Sabina, she was very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this company and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

It was really worth it! The driver and the guide were very good and professionals. I definitely recommend it, ecpessialy because of the pick up and drop off from the hotel, as the tour is very long. Also the guide highlighted the most important things and didn't spend time to every detail, still we saw everything you can visit there. Very good English speaker.
