My two friends and I visited Krakow in December, 2013. We had read about the very large public tours of the Jewish Quarter and WWII ghetto, and decided on a private tour instead. We emailed the Jewish Museum before arriving in Krakow, and they arranged this for us with one of their guides, Gosia. She picked us up at our hotel exactly as arranged, and things proceeded beautifully. The tour was absolutely excellent. We learned a lot, saw a lot, asked a lot of questions, and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly (well, as thoroughly as possible, given the history we were reliving). Well worth the extra money of a private tour, and something we will remember all our lives. Thank you, Gosia!
