What people are saying about Old Synagogue, Krakow

Good - but we have some suggestions for improvement

Alex was a very nice guy, but he needs to learn three small rules, in our opinion: 1. if he is 10 minutes late, the first thing he should do is apologise - he did not apologise at all 2. he should not arrive smoking a cigarette and throw it in the street as he greets his guests 3. he should not be looking down at the little gadget which plays the English commentary, when he should be looking at the road!

Really worth doing, wish we had done it when we first arrived. We did this on our last day, the guide was brilliant, we stopped to take some photos and had a look around a few places .

Pauline was very knowledgeable and made the tour thoroughly enjoyable and extremely interesting. Her English is perfect!
