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.

How far from Krakow can your tours extend? We were looking in to going to Stryji, which is now in the Western Ukraine. Are there any tours that would accommodate us? My grandparents were from Stryji before WWII and some family members may have remained until the war.

Sorry for my late response as I am not racing the TA account, All of my research tours are private so I can arrange a tour to Stryj just for you, When do you plan to travel? Tomasz Cebulski
