Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kris is an excellent guide. I had requested a number of towns and sites just north of Krakow that I wanted to visit. These were Jewish places where my family had once lived before WWII. Ahead of my trip we discussed those places. He was well prepared. He even arranged a meeting for us with the Mayor of Miechow, Poland. Kris goes above and beyond in his willingness to help me with the discovery and research into my family roots. He speaks English very well, a definite plus when one doesn't speak Polish! I plan on engaging his services every time I go to Poland.

We have never had a guide as good as Kris. We used him to visit my small ancestral villages and towns east and northeast of Krakow -- Nowy Korczyn, Stopnica, Staszow, Szydlow, Pozdzen, and Chmielnik.

Kris got everything absolutely right. He was extremely knowledgeable, as you would expect, and did his own preparation to take us to places he had never been before (or doesn't go to regularly). He truly went above and beyond with his preparation -- printing out information and capturing historical photos to show us on his iPad -- and his follow-up -- sending some historical images to me after the trip. He could answer all of our questions accurately and in totally fluent English. He was also full of insights about Krakow, contemporary Poland, and Polish history.

During our private tour he also went above and beyond. He would stop whenever we wanted to take pictures, he called the caretaker to open the cemetery for us in Staszow where my great-great grandfather and other family members may be buried, and in Pozdzen, where nothing remains from the early 19th century in the farming hamlet where my great-great-great grandfather was born in 1790 and my great-great grandmother was born in 1831, he stopped to chat with a couple of women walking along the road we were on to get some information that only residents could give him that made our visit even more special.

A truly amazing day thanks to a truly amazing guide.

I would recommend Kris all the way. He was our main guide throughout the whole holiday. he was always on time to take us to several tours. He can speak very good English and also provides a lot of information regarding the place especially Zakopane and Krakow. he also gives good tips on were to go and were to eat. he also picked us up from the airport and to hotels and always helped with the luggage's. He wasn't only doing his job but also became a friend of us during the whole holiday. Thanks kris

We had a great trip competently guided by Kris. The knowledge that Kris provided on Poland in general was truly impressive and made the trip so much more interesting.

I just returned from a trip to Poland to discover some of our family roots. We were recommended to use services of Kris which we did. We were amazed how much information he found for us regarding our family based on some of the info we sent before the visit. Not only did he do a great job discovering some of our family heritage sights, he also attended to all of our needs on this emotional day he spent with us in a most calming way. I would highly recommend for anyone looking to search and visit the area to contact Kris.

In May 2018, my mom and I spent a week in Poland and Slovakia. While here, Kris acted as our driver and tour guide. I was impressed by his punctuality, flexibility, and attention to detail. Knowing our areas of interest, he did research before and during the trip to create a customized experience for us. Even though we had a flexible schedule with few expectations, he made great suggestions and went above and beyond to arrange interesting events for us. He also has an extensive knowledge of the region. I highly recommend Kris as a tour guide.

Krystoff picked my wife and I up early, & we spent over 12 hour together driving to a very small town in Eastern Poland near the Ukranian border that was the town my father's family immigrated from to the US over 100 years ago. Krystoff was a good driver, good company, and a very knowledgable tour guide. He had a lot of information about the area's cultural and political history, and this was impressive because it is not information that is readily available. My wife and I found it to be a very rewarding and informative trip. We can highly recommend Krystoff as a tour guide to western Galicia.

They organised a private transfer to the camps where we were then in the hands of official guides. The guides were so amazing very knowledgeable and informative and all this was delivered with compassion and undrstanding. The whole experience was very moving . One can only imagine how awful these places were.
