The bus arrived spot on time at our hotel. The bus guide was very good at English and very kind in her way of listening to and answering questions. Lunch bag was fine and the guide at the sigth was good at telling the story with compassion. Arrived back to Krakow as planned.

The guided tour was excellent, the very good guide was able to represent the drama of these places very well in an excellent Italian. Unfortunately at the organizational level there were some misunderstandings: first of all the day before our visit was postponed by 4 hours and 20 minutes forcing us to change the day's program, moreover we had to wait half an hour before the bus came to pick us up in the established place in Krakow, the bus itself uncomfortable and in which it froze due to the abuse of air conditioning (at the request of a better management of the same, the air conditioning was turned off with the opposite result, you died of heat) in more due to the accumulated delay we were not provided with both the paid lunchbox and the material time to eat, only under solicitation we were able to have a sort of lunch after 16. All in all we are satisfied because the visit itself deserves a lot and is really a must if you pass through here.
