Overview

Make one of Poland’s most important pilgrimages with a private, full-day tour from Kraków to Czestochowa, home of the venerated Black Madonna painting. Travel to the Jasna Góra monastery in a private vehicle, and learn about the history of the sacred site on a guided tour. Hear about the legends and miracles associated with the Black Madonna, and see the historic defensive walls that famously survived a Swedish invasion.

When you arrive at the Jasna Góra monastery, learn about the history of the popular pilgrimage site on a private guided tour in the language of your choice. Founded by Pauline monks who emigrated from Hungary in the 14th century, the monastery has been recognized by three different popes thanks to its resilient story and sacred Black Madonna painting.

Black Madonna Tour with Priest

We had an excellent driver, Stevan. He picked us up at our apartment. Very polite, young, personable university student. It was raining, which later turned to sleet and snow but he was a good driver. Our tour was led by Father Ramon, which was quite remarkable.

This was an amazing experience and well worth it!! You have to go early and have mass in front of the Madonna! So moving.

The tour bus came to pick us and dropped us off at our apartment and it was just the two of us with the driver which was really private. The driver was a young man Maciek who spoke very good English and waited for us while we were on the tour. It is a 2 hour drive one way from Krakow. When we arrived, a Dominican nun, Sister Caroline took us around and she was wonderful. There were many students there on school tours and they were kneeling all the way around the shrine of our Lady which we understand is customary but Sister told us since we were visitors, it was not necessary. But it was good to see young people showing their reverence and respect.

The tour didn't quite live up to expectations. The tour was no longer than 40 minutes in total, felt very rushed and not informative enough.

We were guided around by a lovely Sister. She had an amazing knowledge, and answered all our questions. I would recommend this just for a look even if you are not religious. Lunch was not included in this tour but our driver Jacob took us to a nice restaurant for lunch

We really enjoyed our private tour with Father Roman. We was a font of information, having lived at the monastery for 42 years. And the church is over the top. Being there for a Mass was really special!

Father Simon was a wonderful tour guide through the chapels, explaining the artifacts and allowing us to take pictures at various points. Konrad was a great tour guide and driver. He was polite, considerate, knowledgeable, and a good driver. The time passed very quickly!

The private tour to Czestochowa was a wonderful experience. Our driver Lukasz was professional, an excellent and safe driver, very fluent in English and went out of his way to be sure our visit was informative, and above all the experience we were hoping for. Would recommend Viator Tours at any time.
