Krakow Guide for the Jewish area

Does anyone have experience with a guide for the Kazimierz area of Krakow? (using one of RS guides or using the guides from Jaden Bookshop)

I'm not sure if you mean a guide as in a person, but I did a thorough exploration of the Kazimierz district using Rick's guidebook and a map, walked there from the old town--one day I followed the guided walk and found various historical places as well as synagogues and Jewish cemeteries, and I found I loved the vibe of the area so much I ended up spending another afternoon just wandering all over and crossing the bridge, lovely views of the Vistula river, plenty of good restaurants and a good place to find hand-crafted items.

Jumping onto this previous post. We also are in need of a private walking tour guide for Kazimierz. In addiiton to the free group tour from the Jaden bookshop mentioned by posters here, do you have a name to recommend? (The ones listed in the Steves guidebook are not available for the May date we need.)
