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.

We are so grateful for our one day experience with our guide, Tomasz Cebulski. Tomasz picked us up at our hotel in Krakow and proceeded to take us on a life-changing experience through the Krakow Jewish ghettos, Auschwitz I, Auschwitz II, and Birkenau. We left the hotel at 9 am and returned around 6 pm. Not much can be said... More

We were traveling from krakow to Lvov to find our family roots. I had old papers from 1905 and couldn't read the German and Latin in the old script. I called Tomasz and he said I could email. Within a few days we had back the entire translation of documents including the old polish names of parents of the parents.... More

My two days with Tomasz Cebulski were an incredible gift. I have been doing research on my family history in Kaziemierz Dolny and Pulawy Poland for several years and decided to go visit this past September. I found Polin Tours through an exhaustive search of available genealogists and guides. His reviews were stellar and we decided together to spend two... More

Our college age daughter and her friends recommended Tomasz. Do not want to be critical of tour guides, as good ones are worth every cent you spend with them. Tomasz is so much more. A political scientist, one who wants the visitor to Auschwitz to understand and appreciate the significance of the tragedy here. The day we spent with Tomasz... More

My son, daughter-in-law and I feel so lucky to have discovered the wonderful Tomasz Cebulski as our private guide to the Holocaust sites of Krakow and Auschwitz. His perspective as a historian and genocide scholar, combined with his sensitivity, cultural insights, kindness, passion and, yes, humor, helped us to better understand this most horrible chapter of our shared history. He... More

We were guided by Tomasz, Ewa and Joanna in June-July. The logistics, including the accommodation, the guiding and the transport, worked perfectly. Equally, their knowledge and perspective on the sites we saw was fantastic. It helped to make our "Heritage Tour" one that will stay in each of our memories for life. Book early to ensure you secure Tomasz' services!... More
