Good communication and very knowledgeable driver, She shared lots of historical information, actually more than we could absorb and had answers to all our questions. This tour was an excellent way to learn a lot about Krakow in a brief period of time and the golf cart tours outshine any hop on hop off bus tour I have ever taken.

Excellent tour guide! Top class! Kamil Rozanski… very passionate about his job and very knowledgeable. Have done this tour before, but Kamil was a super guide. Would highly recommend. Thank you.

Tour Guide at Auschwitz and Birkenau was fantastic and very informative. Think her name was Sylvie or Sylvia. Never felt that she was rushing us and always took the time to answer any questions.
