Sometimes when you visit a new place, you need more than a museum or a fine dinner. Even the most avid traveller gets a toothache and the best driver can encounter car trouble. What do you do when you're in dire need of legal advice - for whatever reason (we won't ask!) - and you find yourself in a foreign land?read more

My friend and I booked a tour of Krakow and we spent 6 hours walking through the city's sights - David has an encyclopaedic knowledge of the city's history and we would never have found even half of the places to directed us to. He is a photographer which was great for us because he pointed out where and when were the best places to take images. The tour itself was leisurely and gave us plenty of opportunities to photograph places of interest. From time to time David recommended we take a rest and take stock, usually in a cafe. He judged that perfectly. David is very good company and took a lot of trouble to check that we were happy with the tour and what he intended to show us. Honestly, it was perfect. We re-visited quite a few of the places he showed us to see them at more leisure two days later. If you want a guide for this beautiful city David should be your starting point. Highly recommended.
A friend and I took a tour with David on the first afternoon of our visit to Krakow. This was David's first tour in a year due to a leg injury and he was still not walking without difficulty during the tour. Despite this, David never complained and the tour was absolutely fantastic. If you want to be taken to tourist hot spots grab yourself one of the hundreds of tours that are advertised. If you want to see the key areas of the city as well as places and venues that you would never find on your own and offer something different then David is your man. As keen photographers we had the opportunity to stop and do our thing but most importantly the tour set us up for our independent time in the city. David is patient, knowledgeable about the city he lives in and clearly loves and great compony. His communication and follow up are second to none and I cannot think of a reason why as a photographer you would not want to book a tour with him.
Hello Sir/Madam I'm interesting about the language lessons but I would love to get more information it, such admission fees, the duration thank you Kind regards
They lie and they don't care. They are not 24 hours and you can't make international calls. They are completely useless and nasty as well.
The coffee machines don't work! They just take money and do not give any coffee. I was there 2 months ago but my friend checked it today - it's the same!
Well it is a scam, yes. Fortunately I figured it out before paying the whole amount. Simply when I saw that the classes were performed in some kind of corridor and the teachers were changing every time, for me it was obvious that something is wrong. But when they asked me to pay whole amount immediately I already knew that they are cheating 100% and I was right. I didn't pay, but the rest of the students paid everything and after 2 more classed they cancelled everything and locked the so called "classroom" which was simply a corridor with a board and 4 chairs. Pathetic !
BEWARE THIS SCAM! I bought my 8 hour day tour for the Auschwitz-Birkenau and Schindler's Factory Tour, and came from Canada for this. I waited with another family, and NO ONE SHOWED UP. We called and were told "all we can do is cancel your booking and refund you". I then later called the office when they were open, and they tell me they didn't even buy the tickets for the tours that we paid for (I paid for mine over 1 month in advance), then they hung up on me! SAVE YOUR TIME, MONEY AND FRUSTRATION!
Beware taxi drivers!! This taxi driver, for a few kilometers ride, charged 95 zloty. After checking computer taxi estimate website for Krakow, we discovered it should have been 15 zloty. Taking advantage of people coming in from the airport on the train who are unfamiliar with currency and public transport system carrying luggage and tired, this taxi driver was in the taxi lineup located across from the entrance to the Galleria Shopping which is also the entrance to the train station. He was super friendly in the taxi, upon arrival from 4 minute trip, showed us the price of 95 zloty; we gave him 100 and received no change. He was suddenly in a VERY big hurry.
