I thought the itinerary covered a very large chunk of Krakow. It felt like we were able to see most of what the city has to offer in such a short amount of time. Dawid did an awesome job as a guide; he made us feel very welcome and was extremely nice!

I felt that I really got to have a little taste of Spanish culture. The flamenco show was a big highlight for me, and the Sagrada Familia will forever more be the most beautiful church I've been to. I thought Carsen was wonderful. She was very helpful and kind with everything we did and she knew so much about the history of Barcelona.

Best tour guide ever! Dawid really got us immersed in Krakow's culture, learning the polish language, eating traditional polish meals and more! He was very knowledgeable and took us everywhere. He gave us history and did so much more with us then I thought he would and I loved it!

Carsen was INCREDIBLE. Cannot sing her praises enough. So knowledgeable and interesting, but also flexible and laid back. Made the trip so comfortable/welcoming and easy, and really tried to appeal to everyone in the group. She had amazing suggestions for food, going out, shopping, etc. She is the ideal tour guide!! LOVED the bike ride!

Sabela was an amazing tour guide! I loved all of the stories she told us about Edinburgh's history. They provided excellent insight into the sites we were seeing. Arthur's seat was definitely a "wow" moment. It was absolutely beautiful, and a lot of fun to hike. The Ceili was also surprising for me. I wasn't really sure what to expect going into it, but it ended up being my favorite thing we did.

Adi was a fantastic guide and you can tell he really wants everyone to have a great time. Every tour stop is strategic and the restaurants we went to included traditional Czech food. I met some really awesome ladies this trip as well and made some new friends to hang with when we're stateside. I had a great time!

The whole week was incredible, from when we first landed in Venice to our last night in Rome. Some of the best experiences for me were the gondola ride in Venice, hiking in Cinque Terre, wine tasting and watching the sunset in Florence, the Colosseum and Roman Forum in Rome, and Easter mass with Pope Francis in Vatican City. Rhianne was amazing! The trip was very active, but she was calm and collected the entire time, even though we had a very large group. She shared many of her personal experiences from living, traveling, and working in Italy, and it was awesome to hear more about the culture from a true local. A tour guide can make or break a trip, and Rhianne definitely made this trip and was one of the most essential components to its success. As far as I know, everyone loved Rhianne, and we all had a great time spending the week with her!

WSA did a great job in planning the itinerary to make for an amazing weekend! Good balance of free time and planned activities. Our tour guide, Adi, was friendly, fun and flexible who knew the city well which really set the tone! He even brought spray paint for us to graffiti on the John Lennon Wall! Going through WSA took the pressure off planning everything on your own so you could really enjoy the small amount of time you had. Would highly recommend!

I went on the WSA Tour of Krakow in February 2017 and was amazed at how how beautiful the city was and how well the trip was planned. Krakow is a beautiful city, perfect for exploring alone, but better with a guide who can tell you all about the wonderful history. He went above and beyond. I think Krakow is a hidden gem with plenty of beauty and history. I highly recommend visiting this beautiful city with WSA.

I had such a fun time in Edinburgh! If it weren't for my tour guide, I wouldn't be able to see so much and have experienced it all! Michael knew so much information about the city so I was able to learn a lot!
