Wonderful experience! The guides are great at explaining and have great knowledge in history and brings everything into life. Would highly recommend, the tours are operated separately but very successful and we weren’t lost and guided all the way.

Fantastic experience, Olga was our tour guide for Schindler's factory and the Jewish ghetto, then Krzysztof drove us to the salt mines. Both very knowledgeable and very good tour guides. I can't wait to get back to Poland

This is a great way to explore Krakow and to learn more about its history. We got to see many of the main interests in the Jewish Quarter and our guide even made some suggestions about good restaurants to visit.

Arthur is een goede tour guide! Vertelt op een fijne, makkelijke manier die voor iedereen te begrijpen is!

Olga made the tour fascinating, passionate and caring about her subject.
