When I booked my tour to Jasna Gora monastery and Home of Pope John Paul, I was a little nervous but I put my trust in my Lord Jesus and went ahead. To my surprise, the young tour guide who picked us up was the best guide I have seen in my life. He was kind, gentle, very professional, and very religious. He made this tour a very special one for me. He even took me for Mass, did the knee walking etc. Thank you Lord Jesus. Thank you Kamil (Kevin).

Tour guide is the same man we had when we visited last year at Schindlers Factory. He has a passion for delivering the information in a friendly way. He's a walking encyclopaedia. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND this tour!

Absolutely incredible and so informative. Filip was an excellent guide and answered every question we had. I would have paid £80 just for schindlers factory tour! 100% recommend and absolutely worth the money.

Best thing we’ve done in Krakow, guide with an amazing memory for history. Highly recommend it

Great Tour. Our guide Anja was phenomenal. Highly Recommended.
