The tour starts in Kazimierz where you will see the Jewish Quarter, the center of Jewish life until the beginning of World War II. Explore the neighborhood and learn about one of the largest synagogue complexes in Europe. From Kazimierz you will head towards Podgórze, the district where the Jewish ghetto was located.

You have to read and pay attention to the description, because I thought I had the visit to Schindler's factory included in the visit, but it is not included! We could not visit it during our stay, because there was no more place with a guide in French. So we were very disappointed!! Otherwise the visit of Kazimierz by cart was very interesting.

1 hour very pleasant visit, made in January (covered car to avoid the cold). The small car takes us to different places in the neighborhood with commentary on the history of the sites. Very interesting ! We end with the Schindler museum which we also visited and which is worth it. but the driver also offers to take you back to the starting point in the city center.

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.
