Had a great tour. First along the Kazimierz, seen both the Jewish and the Christian part with Dutch information. Also - in a nice mode of transport - we visited the Jewish ghetto and Schindler's List Museum! Also compliments to the guide, who also gave a lot of information outside the information given via a speaker in English and wanted to let us get out of the car to see something up close.

Valentino was an amazing guide. Very informative and friendly. We felt very welcomed! The trip was smooth and easy. Valentino had some good banter! :)
