I recently took part in a live ZOOM guided tour of Kazimierz, the historical Jewish district of Krakow, led by Christopher Skutela. Since my wife and I had been in Cracow 3 times, the last time in 2015 for the Jewish Cultural Festival, the tour brought back many wonderful memories of our visit. Christopher is an excellent guide, has a tremendous knowledge of the history of the place, and is an excellent communicator. He made us feel as if we were there with him on the spot. The time passed all too quickly, and his tour was quite encompassing for such a short time period. We highly recommend Christopher as a tour guide, and hope to meet him in person for our next visit to the Festival in 2022. Issie Baum, Laval, (Nirth of Montreal) Quebec, Canada

Christopher was our Kraków city walking tour guide, also airport transfers and Auschwitz and salt mine guide. During these Covid 19 times we wanted a safe trip with the same guide. Christopher is a lovely, extremely knowledgeable (historian) who guided us in his Mercedes people carrier with leather seats and extreme comfort. His information was excellent (my husband is an historian and well versed in WW2 history) so we were impressed with the knowledge Christopher has. We also had restaurants booked via him during our stay making it a smooth, relaxing and easy trip.

The walking tour was 3 and half hours with a break for coffee/tea etc. Christopher made it fun and interesting. We learned so much about the beautiful city and will certainly return.

Christopher arranged our private tour of Auschwitz with an excellent, knowledgeable Lady guide who has worked for over 20 years at the site and who gave us the information in a sensitive and humble way. A must on everyone’s list to understand the horrors that happened there.

Then onto the salt mine which again Christopher arranged tickets for And as we were early he managed to get us on an earlier tour. After an exhausting day we appreciated the comfortable drive back to our accommodation. I highly recommend using this guide and company

I have toured with Christopher of Private Tours Krakow before and was very pleased with the tours he put together for me. This trip I wanted to tour Southeast Poland including Zamosc, Lublin and the Bieszczady Mountain region. Christopher put together a trip that allowed me to see all the sights I wanted to see plus places I had never thought of that were very special (Belzec Death Camp). He suggested hotels that were perfect for my budget and taste including Hotel Arlamow that was great for relaxing after a day of sightseeing. Christopher who is an expert on all of Poland and most of Europe had no problem meeting and exceeding my very demanding requirements.

We spent a week in Krakow and booked our tours through Christopher. We knew to expect great communication, punctuality and great tours from a previous visit 5 years ago and certainly were not disappointed.

This visit we had our kids with us and Christopher customized an itinerary of short walking tours for us including Krakow Old Town, Wavel Castle and the Jewish Quarter and Ghetto. Christopher also organized day trips to the salt mine and a private guided tour of Auschitz-Birkenau.

Everything was exceptional. Christopher recommend and booked several restaurants for us which were exceptional.

As an above and beyond service Christopher produced a very unique souvenir for my wife - on 24 hours notice!

Krakow is an outstanding destination, completely unaffected by the war in Ukraine. We would recommend both Krakow and Christopher as 10/10.

We hit the jackpot with our tour guide. From his friendly smile and hand shake on day one to a safe ride to the airport on day 12 we could not have been more pleased. As a party of three adults there was plenty of room in the 6 passenger Mercedes. Traveling with a highly educated guide gave us insights into the history of the region, country, and Europe. The historical and cultural sights came alive with interesting vignettes. Our tour was tailored to what we wanted to see, but so many other places and sights were included to give us a well rounded visit to this vibrant land. For example, while in Czestochowa not only did we admire the Black Madonna icon, but we also saw the Golgotha of Jasna Góra that was almost hidden away in the church. And while traveling to Krakow we walked through a delightful Polish National Park. Christopher was always ready to suggest a nice place for lunch and amazing restaurants for dinner.

The bottom line is that when other friends and family members decide to visit Poland and Central Europe this is the company I will recommend.

After having a private tour of Kraków with Christopher, I asked him to take me on a two-week tour of eastern Poland. I am writing a novel that takes place in Eastern Poland between 1900 and 1997. I wanted to learn about people, the history, and current events. My trip was a great success.

Christopher is an excellent guide because 1. He knows a great deal about Poland’s past and present, 2. His doctoral background in philosophy enables him to discuss important social and historical events beyond just the facts, and 3. his English is up to such challenges. Not to mention the fact that he’s a very nice guy.

We toured the country in his Mercedes Benz van was a pleasure and, while I would certainly recommend him for one or two day tours, I think he is exceptionally valuable as a friendly, knowledgeable, and thoughtful guide for trips of any duration. I won’t forget my look inside Poland with him.

Although the story of Auschwitz is heartbreaking, it is so important to visit for a better understanding so that this kind of thing will never happen again. We only had the evening available after 4pm during our stay in Krakow. Christopher worked miracles to get us picked up as soon as we were available and organize a complete and comprehensive private tour of Auschwitz. We were able to tour the whole Auschwitz complex and were able to tour until the site closed in the evening. We could not have asked for a better tour to Auschwitz. Christopher was great. He explained so much about the Polish culture and history. Our car ride from Krakow to Auschwitz was like taking a class on Polish history and culture. It was just perfect. I highly recommend Private Tours Krakow and Christopher for any touring in southern Poland.

We had a terrific tour with Chris. His knowledge of Poland was impressive and his time management and tour organization was excellent. He took us to our ancestral home land and the sights around Krakow. His commentary makes me want to return and when I do I will most certainly seek his services. He was personable, attentive and thoroughly interesting in pointing out sights along the way with fascinating local stories. He far exceeded our expectations and provided a once in a lifetime 5 star experience.

Christopher arranged and provided a 2-day private tour of the Tatra Mountains region (May 2022). This was a custom tour as it included visiting villages where our ancestors emigrated to America. Christopher's work included prior research of church records so that during our actual visit, we were able to visit 4 different villages and tour each church with a local priest as well as visit the cemeteries. Our time was memorable and meaningful. Christopher was excellent: knowledgeable, personable, funny, patient and extremely kind. We were extremely lucky -- we hired a guide and left with a new friend.

Christopher and his colleagues took us on a tour of Auschwitz, Birkenau, the Jewish quarter, the ghetto and the Schindler factory over two days. They were very knowledgable on the subject matters and took time to explain the historical facts as we went through the tour. It made the weekend relaxing and very enjoyable.
We were collected from our accommodation at the agreed times and excellent recommendations were given for authentic Polish food at reasonable prices.
I could not have asked for a better group of guides.
