Beautiful day in Ojców
My friend and I just returned from our magical day in Ojców National Park with Maciek, one of the owners of Check My Country tours. Maciek met us in central Kraków right on time and drove us the 40 minutes or so it takes to get to the park and enter another world. We were extremely lucky to have a crystal clear, cool fall day with the foliage at its most brilliant and colorful. The park is really beautiful, with paths, caves, and whimsical limestone rock formations. Maciek was our fantastic guide the entire time, friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. He also took us to visit a splendid completely renovated castle where we walked the grounds and had a delicious lunch in the wonderful cafe restaurant located in part of the castle - not fast food - a really nice meal. We are so glad we found Maciek and his company and give him our highest recommendation and thanks for a completely terrific day. Maciek is also taking us on another day long trip in a few days, and we can’t wait! This is a really great way to spend the day!!

Amazing Castle Tour
We did the Eagle’s Nest Trail out of Krakow with Maciej. It was fabulous from beginning to end. Even though the tour was over 10 hours it did not feel like a long day. Five castles were included that varied from ruins to being recently restored but Maciej, knowing that we were interested in ruins, fitted in an extra castle. As this was a private tour we were able to spent more time on the areas of our particular interest (ie ruins). We would highly recommend this tour.

Outstanding service!
I'm a Unesco World Heritage Sites lover. And when I planned a trip to Poland, or to be specific Krakow, I found out that lots of Unesco WHS are around the region. Some are easy to get access to, some are not. The Wooden Churches & Tserkva are among the ones that's not easy to go to using a public transportation (if any). So I was very glad when I found out that Check My Country provide the service for a private tour. The communications was by email and they are very responsive, very clear and to the points. Really understand what I expect, so everything is just smooth. I also asked for a detour to Kalwaria to visit another WHS. So practivally ticked off 3 WHS in 1 day. I was accompanied by Maciek and his friend to all the spots. They let me take my own phase, yet at the same time manage the time to make sure all places are visited. We visited the wooden churches in Lipnica Murowana, Binarowa, Rosnowice, Gromnik and the Tserkva in Owczary. In between they took me to a very good place to have lunch (Sloneczne Wzgovze). They became good companion and translators (for the people who tend/guide the churches). A very good service indeed. I highly recommend Check My Country when you want to go around Krakow. Especially further South to visit the Wooden Churches & Tserkva on a private tour. With them you will feel that you dont have to go far to go far.

Local friendly experience
Travelled to Krakow with my husband and took a combined Jewish Quarter & Ghetto tour with Michael of Check My Country. We had a super relaxed experience & Michael then helped organise our trip to the Salt Mines & Auschwitz - Birkenau including transfers to the airport for the next day. The timely pick up from the apt with our bags made this a very enjoyable & seamless last day of our trip. We would thoroughly recommend using Maciej & his team. This is a small bespoke tour guiding company who offer great flexibility, experience & local knowledge. Great value for money too.

Super consigliato!
Prima di partire per Cracovia abbiamo esplorato le varie proposte disponibili ma, apparentemente, nessuno dei Tour Operator maggiori offriva un percorso lungo il quale poter visitare le chiese dichiarate patrimonio dell'UNESCO. Maciej, di Check My Country, che ci ha accompagnato in questo tour di una giornata è stato puntuale, gentilissimo, molto prudente e attento alla guida e molto flessibile nell'adattare il programma alle nostre richieste. Si è prodigato per contattare i custodi delle chiese, che purtroppo non sempre sono disponibili, ci ha segnalato anche altri edifici degni di nota lungo il tragitto, fermandosi ogni volta che lo desideravamo e ci ha riportato all'albergo perfettamente nei tempi previsti. Alla fine abbiamo deciso di approfittare dei loro servizi anche per raggiungere l'aeroporto. Si tratta di un'organizzazione di giovani, costituita di recente ma molto attenta al servizio e che cerca di offrire un prodotto meno di massa, più mirato rispetto alle esigenze del cliente, e con un rapporto qualità prezzo molto interessante. Consigliato per un servizio personalizzato anche al di fuori dei soliti percorsi turistici.

Parfait !
De l'accueil en français à l'attention portée par notre guide pour regrouper notre petite famille... 2 visites sur 2 jours (mines de sel et camps d'Auschwitz) avec départ de l'hôtel et retour en ville selon notre choix pour y terminer l'après-midi. Un très bon souvenir.
