Very good and knowledgeable guide. Helped us even after the tour so that we got to the right place, the concert in the old town, with the right bus. She even followed us on the bus so that we really got it right even though she herself was going in the opposite direction

Mary was a great guide - very informative and friendly. We travelled in Chopin’s footsteps all around the town and learned all about his life. Would recommend

It was great fun. The whole tour was not too long and not too short. All puzzles were solvable, even if we needed a hint from time to time.

An absolute must for any Chopin fan! George was a fantastic guide and there were so many sights to see.
