Paul collected us from our hotel and drove us to Auschwitz. I was in awe of his knowledge of such a broad spectrum of things. Throughly enjoyed speaking with him for the long car journey. He guided us to the entrance of Auschwitz and later Birkenau as they have guides allocated tour groups within each camp. Paul made the trip easy and would highly recommend him.

Mateusz was an amazing tour guide. He has incredible knowledge about the history of Poznan and everything it has to offer. We really enjoyed our experience and would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting Poznan.

Roman was a great guide, perfect knowledge of German and great details about the history of the city! Was a real highlight!

Trip was great! Shared a lot of interesting information about the area and made the drive fun.

Excellent guide. His stories about Wroclaw make me want to keep visiting this beautiful city.
