        Fantastic private trip to Thermal Baths
        We booked a private trip to the thermal baths. Our driver Tomasz arrived on time, car was comfortable and clean. We had up to 4 hours unlimited access to the spa and he was waiting for us when we came out. The spa was busy but we still managed to enjoy all the areas. Very clean and lots of pools/jacuzzi’s/ sauna etc. Fantastic trip thank you!

        Traveling from Warsaw to Krakow
        We received a text from our driver, Tomas, advising us of our pickup time at our hotel & that he would accommodate our change in schedule. He showed up on time, loaded us up & drove us from Warsaw to Krakow, through some heavy rain cells, without incident. His vehicle was in great working order, very clean & comfortable for the 3+ hour ride. He was very pleasant, answering questions & stopping as we needed. I would highly recommend this service for anyone needing ground transportation in Poland or anywhere else he services. Thank you.

        Excellent service
        We have used Krakow Travel Time for a transfer from Krakow to Zakopane and then back to Krakow. Information were very clear from the first email exchange, they answered all of our questions quickly. Drivers were extremely kind and professional. Vans were clean and spacious. Reasonable price, taking into account the long transfer time. It is possible to pay cash or by card. Highly recommended.

        Private car from Kraków to Vienna
        it cost five of us $75 per person for the five hour ride from Kraków to Vienna. Kraków travel time picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off at our hotel in Vienna. It was wonderfully convenient and efficient. So much better than flying! Our driver was wonderful.

        Highly recommended!
        I do not usually give reviews but I highly recommend Krakow Travel Time. I arranged to do a special salt mine tour at 11am and needed to rush to Auschwitz by 2pm for the guided tour. Eliana, whom I liaised with, provided good advice and was very detailed and patient in answering my queries. You know most companies would tell you that they will let you know the name of the personnel the day before but they never do. However, Eliana followed through. Tomasz who was in charge of taking us around, has excellent driving skills. When we reached the salt mine at the usual place, we were told it will be at another location for the special tour. He quickly drove us over so that we will not be late. The salt mine tour ended a bit late and he rushed us to Auschwitz quickly and safely. Tomasz was kind and sincere. Felt like we have known him for a while. Highly recommended!

        We made 2 bookings; Czestochowa Black Madonna tour and Private transfer from Krakow to Budapest. Both drivers, Tomasz's services were excellent. They were on time, friendly and professional. Eliana was very efficient. She was very quick in answering our emails and she even sent reminders nearing to our booking dates.

        Pretty city
        The driver was on time and very pleasant. The ride was longer than I thought as traffic in and out of all Polish cities is congested. We didn’t have all the time to see Cathedral Island as my family decided to spend their time shopping. The Panorama of the Battle of some place was amazing and is highly recommend. We were glad we went but wished we had a couple of more hours to visit.

        Excellent Client Service
        We used Krakow Travel Time twice on our recent visit to Poland and were very happy with their client service. Special thanks to Eliana who always responded to my emails quickly and efficiently. From start to go, everything went seamlessly. We booked a private transfer from Warsaw to Krakow and separately, from Krakow, we booked a private transfer for the Dunajec rafting and Niedzica Castle tour, a highlight of our trip. Both our drivers were called Tomasz and were punctual and skilled drivers who spoke very good English. The cars were spacious and clean. We particularly wanted to thank Tomasz who took us on the rafting and castle tour – he really was like a private tour guide, very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly. As we can’t speak Polish, he assisted us at the rafting ticket office, waited until we were seated in our raft and he was there as soon as we alighted a couple of hours later to walk us back to the car. I would highly recommend Krakow Travel Time to our family, friends and work colleagues visiting Poland.

        This was a great choice and we will book with them again next time. Tomasz was our driver and was professional and so very helpful! This is the best (and affordable) way to go to Zackopane for the day. Thank you!

        ~Three perfect experiences with this company~
        Used this small family owned but highly efficient company for a trip two years ago (oops - forgot my password here for white a while and just got around to resetting it) to the Salt Mines from our hotel in Krakow, to Auschwitz on a separate day, as well as a ride from Krakow to Budapest where our subsequent Danube cruise began. Each driver was prompt and got us exactly where we needed to be. Date of travel is incorrect since droplist didn't go farther back than July 2018 and our trip was in May 2017.

        100% perfect!!
        I can honestly say this is a really amazing and punctual service. Firstly we booked for a auschwitz tour, then we added a airport collection, then added a morning transport shooting and onto the salt mines and again added at the last min a transfer back to the airport. We used travel time for all of our days out and transfers. Airport. Collection and drop off,we had tomasz both times, really nice polite good driver. Perfectly on time, also for our shooting trip and the salt mines he again was perfectly on time, just excellent. Our trip to auschwitz we had Gregory as our driver. Very safe had a dvd on the camp to play, so we learnt on the way. Trip was app 1h30. In the snow, he was very knowledgeable showing us a few things outside the camps to look at, helped with a guide book and where to go on both camps, he really made the day a stress free day, hard place to enjoy but we had no worries over transport. Eliana in the office quickly answered all our questions helped with advise on travelling times and collection times, booking was very easy even as we kept adding trips to our holiday. Not one thing went wrong they are totally professional all the time. In many instances they were cheaper than using a taxi, I can totally recommend with confidence and we will be using them again. May we please thank Eliana, Gregory and tomasz for all their time and help and making our travel as perfect as it was. Stuart.

      This private tour is a good option if you like to visit it in your own way.
      Thomasz is a good driver, brings your there and knows the intens-emotions you will experience.

      We opted for a self guided tour of Auschwitz and Birkenau as I have read so much about both, and didn't want to be rushed by guides. An incredibly emotional place - Auschwitz is the first camp that you visit, with the iconic "Arbeit Macht Frei" gate. There is so much to see and we simply didn't have time to see it all which was a shame. We saw those areas we felt had the most impact - we weren't wrong. I have wanted to go since I first heard of the camp and I firmly believe everyone should go, if only to acknowledge the millions who died. Slightly marred by huge guided tours, which made it difficult at times. It is in Auschwitz that you will see the belongings, including hair of those who died. On leaving Auschwitz, we were taken for lunch which was surprisingly nice - a large sandwich, fruit and water before commencing our visit to Birkenau. For me, this was the more emotional and hard hitting of the sites - seeing the destroyed gas chambers and the selection site. Although there are many barracks still standing here, it is only possible to visit two - the so called "Death Barracks" and the Children's Barracks - very harrowing, to walk where small children struggled to survive. If you know when you plan to visit Poland, it is worth checking to see if tickets are available for free (both sites are free to visit - but it is only by booking in advance and the tickets run out incredibly quickly - they recommend that you try to book three months in advance. ).

      We booked a trip to Auschwitz from Krakow, with drop off at Krakow airport.

      The communication via mail with Mrs. Eliana was prompt with clear responces. She provided us with all the necessary informations regarding visiting Auschwitz, that she knew would be important for us. Excellent business communication.

      The minivan was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The driver Tomasz was very pleasant, friendly and helpful.

      I would highly recommend Krakow Travel Time, to anyone visiting Poland. I assure you, that you will not be disappointed.

      Had a very good tour with this company. Everything ran very smoothly and the driver was friendly and organised. We did both Auschwitz and Wielicka in a pretty busy day and could not have done this on our own so were very happy with the transport and having everything organised for us. Would definitely recommend.
