Martin was prompt, professional, and filled with wonderful information and insight. He shared his own family history and stories as well as Polish history.
Compliments to Dariusz

Our guide, Dariusz, made the trip as informative and as pleasant as it could be. We would recommend him to anyone who wants a full tour of Krakow and Auschwitz-Birkenau.
Memorable one day visit
, May 2019
Our guide had an excellent knowledge of polish history. We could understand complicated circumstances in which Jewish people were placed at that time. So we really appreciated his service.
An excellent day out
, May 2019
the tour was excellent. It was the third time we visited Auschwitz and Alicja showed us so much that we hadn't seen before. Her knowledge was excellent and she recounted history with a lot of empathy for the victims. If we ever decide to return to Krakow we will definitely book with her again.
Private tour Auschwitz-Birkenau
, May 2019
Our driver (Darius) emailed us the day before to confirm pick up and arrived exactly on time. We were shown around the Jewish District, drove past the ghetto and Schindler's factory. We then headed out to Auschwitz II Birkenau where Darius personally took us through the camp. We were then driven to Auschwitz I and handed over to a tour group with English speaking headphones. Our guide for this tour group (Suzanne) was brilliant! We personally found Darius very abrupt at times but wonder if this is just the Polish way? It would seem from reading all the reviews that his wife Alicja is excellent so maybe request her for this tour if you get a chance. It takes over an hour to get to the camps. It was a cold day but we found the heating in the car ride there to be quite hot (remember we are from Australia). When we requested that the AC be turned down, we were told that it was already on low and he didn't want to lose is voice?? We had to keep opening the windows to let the cool air in. Other than that, the tour was very good. Incredibly sad what happened but something everyone should see so that it is never forgotten or repeated.

Trip with Alicja was amazing! She is a great host. This trip is a must see and they way Alicja guides you through history is amazing! If you ever plan trip to Auschwitz, you should contact Krakow4you and Alicja and have her take her on this journey! She is a rock star! From the moment she met us, to the care along the way, it was the most unforgettable experience! Thank you Alicja! we will highly recommend you to anyone interested in this tour!

, Apr 2018
Really wanted to get a thorough immersion experience for my family with two kids and with a lot of internal debate signed up for this trip based on all the feedback that we saw online. It appears that others were lucky and have had a better experience with the company. We also did not have the lady who is well reviewed as the guide, which could also be the contributing factor. Was disappointed that we ended up paying almost three times the money for an experience that was pedestrian. I had already visited the area prior and primarily wanted to show my family the same. Was hoping that the Krakow tour at the end will make up for the poor experience, but it did not. Highly recommend free walking tour of the Jewish district rather that take his abbreviated highlight tour of an the area that has such high historical significance.

Alecja was the BEST tour guide we ever could have asked for. We wish we would have known we could have used her for all of our touring in Krakow. Alecja wanted to start at 7 AM, which we just couldn't do as we had been traveling so much prior, and we arrived in Krakow late the night before. She agreed to pick us up at our hotel at 8:30 AM. Once we got in the car, Alecja was quick to start telling us about what our day would entail, and she started telling us about the history of Auschwitz. Once we told her that my children were grandchildren of a survivor, my husbands Mother, she was so quick to want to learn about my mother-in-laws survival story, and what we were hoping to gain from the day. Alecja's understanding and knowledge of the concentration camps, and the history of Poland are so obvious when she speaks to you. She was so caring, and empathetic, and we could not have asked for anyone better to share this difficult journey with us. Somehow or another, with Alecja's help, we feel as if we have arrived at some inner resolution of knowing what our family members endured during this horrific period of history, while leaving and thinking there is so much more to know that no one ever will. We highly recommend Alecja when touring Auschwitz for true compassion, and understanding and learning so much more than we have ever been told.

We booked a trip to Krakow for the beginning of January and decided that a private tour of the concentration camp Auschwitz and the Jewish quarter would be the right choice. Since were a family of five including 2 teenagers, we chose a German speaking guide for Auschwitz to make sure theyre able to follow the tour properly. However, the majority of the time we spend with Alicja Wróbel as our guide and we were all very satisfied and would highly recommend a guided tour with her. Alicja Wróbel and the driver Robert picked us up at 6:30 am to make sure we wouldnt have to wait at our first stop Auschwitz I and that for sure was a good idea since we were one of the first groups to get there, where our German guide was already waiting for us. On our way to Auschwitz Alicja Wróbel already provided us with plenty of information about the history of Auschwitz and some general facts. After the German speaking tour had ended we were picked up by Robert and Alicja Wróbel to drive back to Krakows Jewish quarter and the Jewish ghetto, where Alicja showed us the main places to see and recommendations where to eat. She was very open, easy to understand and happy to answer all of our questions. She was able to adjust her content according to our interests and previous knowledge. Telling plenty of stories of survivors made it easy to follow and interesting for people who already have a good general knowledge of the history during the Third Reich. All in all, the tour was very well organized and Alicja Wróbel even offered their help in case we have any other questions about Krakow after the tour ends. As all of our family members were very touched by that experience, we would like to recommend this tour including Alicja Wróbel as a guide since were convinced there is no better way to plan out such a trip and learn about this particular part of our recent history.

We took this option because we wanted opportunity to explore the topic in greater depth than would be otherwise possible in a large group. We were not disappointed. Alicja is an exemplary 'host', her excellent command of the english language made for a very difficult subject and visit to be although sombre, a fulfilling experience. In practical matters, she is highly efficient pre-empting our every wish and need - nothing too much trouble so making this difficult visit also enjoyable. Congratulations.
