    Overall experience was great. Jimmy was a fantastic guy who is very knowledgeable (he’s a Historian). Answered all my questions and provided a good tour experience. Only reason it’s not 5 stars is because the tour says the Rhemu Synagogue ticket is included but it was not—nor was anything mentioned about visiting there. So it felt misleading. Other that that, all good.

The day before the tour we went to the ghetto by ourselves. But we felt a little bit empty handed, so we looked into getting a tour guide of Kazimerz and the Jewish ghetto. And the first one we found was Seweryn, and wow we are so happy that we did. Seweryn is a very nice man with alot of knowledge about the jewish history in Kazimerz. Not only did we have a great time but we learnt alot and got so much more than we anticipated. For anyone who is checking this page out and is interested in Jewish culture and their history in Kazimerz. PLEASE do not hesitate on booking you will not be dissapointed! Dziekuje Seweryn, We will see you again soon.

Awesome tourguide Polina, who has answered all of our questions and is an excellent driver! The tour was very interesting and impressive, beautiful to see the Jewish quarter.
