Hiring an English Speaking Guide


I'll be visiting Krakow this May and am looking to spend a day visiting Brzozow, about 2 hours away, to see where my family came from. I am not fluent in Polish and am nervous about renting a car. Is it possible to hire a guide for this type of thing? I'm not sure where to start, any advice would be greatly appreciated.

We were just in Krakow, there is a lot of English spoken in Krakow and I would think that renting a car from a car rental company would be a problem as there will be a member of staff that speaks English.

It might be handy to try and find someone to show you around Bzozow or you can just explore it on your own.

Not sure how easy it would be to find a guide.

Here's what I would do: Go to Google and seach "Krakow limo." A good number of websites will give you plenty of options to choose from. If you're going to a town 2 hours away, ask them for all-day rates. Negative: It ain't real cheap, probably close to $400 for a day. Positive: English-speaking driver takes you anywhere you want to go in a snazzy car. He knows the roads and does all the work for you, etc. If you think about it, a limo & driver makes a lot of sense for a person in your situation.
