It’s a private tour and driver’s name Victor. He’s a very nice young guy. We met at 9am and 2 hours driving to the Jasna Góra Monastery. We spent almost 2 hours in there and inside of the church was abundance. You would feel moment of peaceful and silent when in front of the Black Madonna of Częstochowa. We invited Victor for having lunch together, we talked we laugh and let us know the modern Poland’s society. It was fabulous and amazing - not just like travelling - likes travelling with a local friend.

The package purchased was misleading. There was no guide and we were only given 1.5 hours to observe the area thus we spent more time driving than actually visiting the site. We were told we would have 8 hours overall and this did not happen.
