Guide in Krakow

I was wondering if anybody knew of a local guide in Krakow Poland?

Krakow is the most easily walked city in Europe with everything compact around the square in old town. I don't see any need for a guide in city. Especially if you stay in one of the many hotels in old town. I
would suggest the Hotel Saski. If you are taking a side trip such as Auschwitz, there are many local guides that offer this service.

I also think that you don't need a guide for Krakow if you own the Rick Steves Eastern Europe book. Getting around is very easy. Also, buses go overy hour to Auschwitz; the bus station is right next to the train station--just keep in mind that buses leave from below the level where you buy tickets.

We just returned from a trip where we had a private guide in Krakow. Her name is Marta Chmielowska. Her information is in the Rick Steve's book and she is also listed on the private guides in Europe website. We thought it was great having her insight and learned much more than we would have otherwise. We also covered more in less time since she knew how to get around quickly and efficiently.
