Reviews of Services in Krakow

Hello there, my wife and I visited Krakow on the 14th June for five nights. We really enjoyed the city, the people and trips to the major tourist spots around the city. We had a fantastic time. On the day of our return home we had lots of time to kill and decided to take the train from the city to the airport. This is where our problem began. The 17.43 train was delayed and unknown to us we boarded the wrong train heading away from the airport. Realising the journey was taking too long we spoke with the guard and with assistance from another passenger we were advised to get of this train at Myslowice station and travel back to the city. This is an unmanned station and with further assistance from another lady we took the 19.20 train back to Krakow. On this train another lady passenger overhead our discussion with the guard and options for making it to the airport in time for our flights. She took control of our situation and advised us that we may miss our flight if we went back all the way into the city. She then arranged for an Uber taxi to pick us up at Bronowice station to continue the trip to the airport. We made our check in within 5 minutes of the gate closing.We thanked everyone who helped us at the time but did not get any contact details of the two wonderful ladies who made our journey to the airport on time possible. This is a big thank you to both. It goes further to confirm that there are some kind and considerate people in this world. Love you Krakow

I was there in April of 2018 and they were not nice to me either. I was 59 at the time. It would have been nice to have been called "panu" in Poland just once in my life - but all of the twenty somethings insisted on using "ty" second person singular to my face. I spent most of my vacation eating frytki in the street from a food stand.

Umówiłam się na zabieg peelingu kawitacyjnego twarzy. Na karcie informacyjnej zaznaczyłam, iż obszar, który ma zostać poddany zabiegowi to twarz. Przed zabiegiem Pani kosmetyczka zapytała, czy reflektuje na peeling twarzy z maska kremową za 200 zł czy peeling twarzy z maską algową za 220 zł - zdecydowałam się na drugą opcję. Jakież było moje zdziwienie, kiedy, gdy przyszło do zapłaty usłyszałam, że wykonano zabieg peelingu kawitacyjnego twarzy, szyi i dekoltu za 260 zł. Zostałam naciągnięta, za to co uważałam za działania promocyjne, musiałam słono zapłacić. Na pisemną skargę nie usłyszałam nawet słowa: przepraszam. Nie polecam, radzę uważać.

Przyciemniona sala egzaminacyjna była przepastna, olbrzymi siedemnastowieczny drewniany stół stał dokładnie w samym centrum pokoju. Pięcioro nauczycieli czekało na mnie, siedząc ramię w ramię wzdłuż stołu, tworzyli oni zastraszającą obsadę. Ostrożnie ruszyłem do przodu i zająłem miejsce po środku po drugiej stronie. Najsurowszy z nich przedstawił się jako Lord Christopher i krzyknął do mnie “Zabierz te ręce ze stołu!!” Oczekiwałem długiego egzaminu o tym, kto wynalazł średnik albo o zawiłych wątkach z Pana Tadeusza. Cały tydzień przygotowywałem odpowiedzi na trzy podstawowe pytania z Pana Tadeusza. Kto był ojcem Tadeusza? Która Księga “Pana Tadeusza” zawiera opis polowania? Kiedy i gdzie został wydany “Pan Tadeusz”? Brudne okulary Lorda Christophera były pokryte trzytygodniową warstwą ze śladami palców, ciemną warstwą wysuszonej kawy i odrobiną talku z 1960 roku. Wyglądał jakby nie spał pół nocy pijąc whisky i prowadząc przydługą dyskusję ze swoim kamerdynerem. Na szczęście dla mnie, w chwili gdy zaczął na mnie krzyczeć złapał się za lewe ramię i upadł na podłogę z donośnym łomotem. Wstępne badania ze szpitala potwierdziły, że bez większych komplikacji przeżył ten czwarty już atak serca. Muszę się przyznać, że zlekceważyłem zwyczaj wysyłania chorym kwiatów.

A very big thanks to Magda Grzybowska and Bartosz for their very efficient work to find tenants for our house and for their support in the deal. A specific thanks to Magda who was very active to finalise the contract despite the fact that she was on holidays. Very professional and nice to work with, I recommend.

I'm in the middle of the first semester for beginners and really enjoying the course. The classes are very productive and every day I learn a little bit more of the Polish language, which is so different. The teacher Agnieszka Zięba is very patient and attentive. I have no reason to complain and I can't wait to complete the next modules! Varia is a great course!

Zabawa, zabawa Po raz kolejny uczę się języka polskiego z Varią. Tym razem zrozumiałam, że dobrze być kobietą - przynajmniej jeśli chodzi o język polski. Nazywam się Andrea Mueller, a moje imię odmienia się przez przypadki: Andrei, Andreę, Andreą, Andrei, więc prawie można jeszcze go rozpoznać, a Mueller cały czas jest jak jest - bez zmiany. Współczuję jednak mężczyznom o imieniu i nazwisku z języka obcego, jak na przykład Murphy. To nazwisko się zmienia na Murphy’ego, Murphy’emu, Murphy’ego, Murph’ym, a w miejscowniku - o cudo - zniknie nawet apostrof - i będzie po prostu Murphym. Polski - to masakra, co da się uczyć jedynie z Varią, a w moim przypadku w tej chwili z Małgorzatą Wilkosz. Zum wiederholten Mal lerne ich Polnisch mit Varia. Dieses Mal verstand ich, dass es gut ist, eine Frau zu sein - jedenfalls was das Polnische angeht. Ich heiße Andrea Müller und mein Vorname verändert sich in den einzelnen Fällen kaum: Andrei, Andreę, Andreą, Andrei, man kann ihn also einigermaßen wieder erkennen. Müller bleibt Müller - ohne Änderung. Ich fühle jedoch mit den Männern, die einen nichtpolnischen Vor- und Zunamen haben wie zum Beispiel Murphy. Dieser Nachname ändert sich durch die Fälle in Murphy’ego, Murphy’emu, Murphy’ego, Murph’ym und im 6. Fall - oh Wunder - verschwindet auch noch das Apostroph und es bleibt Murphym. Polnisch ist echt unglaublich und man kann es einfach nur mit Varia lernen, in meinem Fall und in diesem Moment gerade mit Małgorzatą Wilkosz.

I am now on my second course at Varia, and I can only say positive things about the programs they offer. The teachers are amazing! I’ve studied with Marta Plak who is an outstanding pedagogue. She is kind, patient and her enthusiasm is contagious. Polish is a difficult language to learn but with her I have considerably improved in just 3 months! My new teacher Natalia Wójcik, is equally competent, with a methodical focus on grammar and persistent practice! The online lessons are well-structured and efficient, I’m pleasantly surprised of the adjustments they’ve made as I was a bit sceptic in the beginning of the pandemic. I’m extremely satisfied and I more than recommend Varia to anyone who wants to learn polish in a proficient way. Enrol, you won’t regret it!

W szkole „Varia” byłem tylko na trzech kursach w latach 2018, 2019 i 2020. Ten kurs jest więcej niż kurs języka polskiego. Niespodziewanie dla mnie on zamienił się na kurs entuzjazmu i kreatywności. Za każdym nowym słowem czy regułą gramatyczną, że spotkałem tam, kryła się ogromna miłość do języka polskiego jego lektorek. A teraz myślę, że czekanie do przyszłego roku jest za długie. Znowu jadę na kurs semestralny. I dlaczego? Dlatego że Varia jest źródłem entuzjazmu, czar lektorek i wszystkich pięknych Pań w szkole. Ponadto, tam można nabywać wiele wiedzy języka polskiego. Ale najważniejsze: moi nauczyciele są więcej niż profesjonaliści na ich terenie, ale również urodzene pasjonaci i bardzo ciekawe osobowości. Dziękuję, Varia!

Po pierwsze, gdybym nie spotkała tej szkoły, moje życie studenckie w Polsce już by się skończyło.Nauczycielki są bardzo mili i pomagająca i zawsze nadrabiają to, czego mi brakuje. Posiadają również doskonałe wykształcenie i doświadczenie, dzięki czemu uczą do nas szeroki zakres wiedzy o Polsce, nie tylko języku.Sekretarki też zawsze wspierają naszą naukę.Nie mogę im wyrazić całej wdzięczności słowami. Dziękuję zawsze!

Bardzo podobało mi się mój doświadczenie u Varii. Nauczyciele są mili i ciekawi, i nawet jeśli mają swoje plany, są otwartci do zmień, gdybymy chcieli czegoś specyfycznego się uczyć. Ceny też są fair, tematy ciekawe i różne, rekomenduję! Tylko jedna rzecz chcialabym widzieć, i to jest że intensywny kurs byłby 4 tygodnie, a nie 3. Oprócz tego, bardzo fayjna szkoła!

My experience with Varia is that everyone, from teachers to administrative personal, is just amazing! Teachers are not only skillful but also empathetic and patient, they usually make sure that all the students in the class understand the subjects reviewed. Administrative personal has one of the best Customer Service approaches in Krakow, therefore it is an additional incentive to proceed with this investment.

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.

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 !

Poland

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.

Make a strong effort not to target people over 50 with hostility, obvious disinterest, and condescending remarks. It is so obvious - and not attractive at all. This happened to two men in my class - both of them had traveled thousands of miles to Krakow - both left after just one week.
