Owner description: We offer special academically designed one day private tours to Auschwitz-Birkenau Museum, Cracow, Kazimierz, Wieliczka Salt Mine and majority of Polish and Jewish heritage and Holocaust related sites in Poland. We specialize in private guiding and genealogy services in Poland but we also work in other fields like Christian genealogy and regular private, expert guided tours to most popular travel destinations around Cracow and Central Europe. All our guides have broad academic education and years of experience conducting tailor-made tours though Poland. We always match our best guides according to the chosen travel itinerary and the visitors background and needs. In this way we secure not only exploring the local history with professionals but also often lasting personal contact enriching the travel experience. We believe in quality, not quantity.

“The Best!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

We just returned from a visit to my family's birthplace in Poland. Tomasz had previously researched our family tree and arranged for us to see records from the 1800's. He is extremely knowledgable in the history of the area and made our experience a memorable one. We couldn't have asked for more in a guide. I would highly recommend him for anyone interested in exploring their family history in Poland. Tomasz made our trip one we will never forget!

“EXCELLENT GUIDE-EXCELENTE GUIA”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

we are from venezuela, spanish speaking, but we had a great experience sharing with Tomasz, we were looking a spanish guide but we found Tomasz with an excellent and easy English speaking, and the best thing was his knowledge, details and information about our visiting in Krakow, Auschwitz-Birkenau, definitely it was the best decision!
Definitivamente, fue una excelente decisión y una gran suerte haberlo tenido como guía y haber aprovechado sus conocimientos de historia y genealogía. Altamente recomendable!!!

“discovering my parents history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Our experience with Polin Travel was both complete and comprehensive. Thomas took us to every possible location so that we could understand my parent's birth place and their times during the Holocaust. His tour guides that he set up for us in Warsaw and Krakow were excellent. Everyone involved were nice, on time and complete. They put our needs first and were flexible in our plans and travels.

“Tomasz Cebulski - The Only Guide You Will Need”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

If you are interested in exploring your family roots and genealogy in this part of Poland then Tomasz Cebulski is an absolute must...he was simply marvellous as our family toured Krakow, Auschwitz- Birkenau, Przemysl and the south east area on a voyage of discovery. His preparation work on the genealogy of our family was outstanding as we were able to locate in the local Registry the birth records of so many family members. Tomasz is a sensitive young man with a deep knowledge of history and the Polish-Jewish relationship. His English is impeccable and he is a pleasure to have around. Highly recommended. He most recently helped a friend find his family roots in Opatow...well done again. Thank you.

“Excellent Resource for Genealogy in Poland”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Tomasz worked with me for a day to Radomsko Poland (about 2 1/2 hours by car from Krakow) in visiting sites where my grandmother was born and neighboring towns. He was well prepared, informative, spoke excellent English, had an excellent grasp of both Polish history and genealogy, and was an excellent host. I would recommend him to anyone seeking help in Poland.
