My name is Alicja and I've been guiding tourists for years. I have an official license of a guide and a tour leader granted by the local authorities. I often work with small groups of people having Polish roots so I have a huge experience in genealogy tours and genealogy research.
I'm fascinated with the history of former, multicultural Galicia and its inhabitants - Christians, Jews, Lemkos and Germans. I specialise in the Jewish heritage tours - I cooperate with Galicia Jewish Museum and Taube Foundation - and wooden architecture tours.
I can help you to organise your day trips to Zakopane, Wieliczka, Auschwitz etc. as well as customised tours to other places of interest.
I'm a foodie too so I know the best places to eat out in the area :-)
I'd love to show you around my magic city of Krakow!
A Recent Review of this guide
Alicja gave a great tour of the Jewish Quarter Kazimierz and has extensive knowledge of pre-World War II Jewish life in Krakow. More than a tour, it was also a wonderful history lesson. Highly recommened!
I have a license of a tour guide of Krakow and I'm also a museum guide in the Schindler's Factory and Underground Museum of the Main Market Square. I also took a special course in the Jewish history of the region at the Galicia Jewish Museum.
I do not have a license to give tours inside of Wieliczka Salt Mine nor inside of Auschwitz-Birkenau Memorial and Museum (they have their own local guides).
