    Excellent Customer Service

    Visited Austwich/Birkenau and did a tour of the Jewish Qtr on the 7th and 8th March, all booked through Viator. Met thee most wonderful tour guides. Their wealth of knowledge / information was overwhelming. Their customer service was second to none. I rec'd a text on the eve of our Austwich visit to confirm pick up time at my accommodation. Our pickup was on time. Our driver was excellent (whom unfortunately i cannot remember his name) once he had picked up all for the our tour, he explained how the day would pan out and then played a video of the history of Austwich to watch during our journey. This video truly set the scene to our tour. Our tour included the salt mines. We were supplied a lovely luch before making our way to the saltmine which was very tasty. A roll and a pasta salad and a chocolate biscuit bar with water. Our driver was professional, helpful and friendly showing great patience whist ensuring everyone was informed throughout. The following days tour of the Jewish Qtr was again a very informative tour given by a great guide who had a wealth of knowledge and a very friendly manner. I would highly recommend Viator and wherever I travel I will book with them without hesitation.
    Driver was very informative

    Schindler’s factory is not what I thought it would be. The driver was very informative during the tour.
    Brilliant

    Brilliant driver- Mirek- , very knowledgeable, patient and pleasant! The trip itself is a must see- the fact we can stop at the pharmacy operating in the ghetto during the War as a major plus we weren’t expecting. Would reccomend the trip and would definitely recommend aviator. Thank you Mirek
    Worthy but bitty
    Martin_B, Feb 2020
    I found Schindler's Factory a strange experience. It is comprehensive coming a detailed account of Krakow during WW2. But the panels about Schindler appear to be designed to make it hard to read and if there is someone standing in front of them it is near impossible. And that's the same throughout. Lots of detailed content which is really difficult to read if the museum is busy. Loved the tour of the Ghetto and Jewish Quarter. V. Informative guide.
    Really enjoyable
    Rachel_C, Feb 2020
    Great tour really enjoyed it, special thanks to our tour guide he was great and really knew his history
    All the tour was excellent
    johnrice04, Feb 2020
    It was a fantastic tour. Our guide driver was excellent with a in dept knowledge of what happened during ww2. His accent was so easy to listen to and understand. Unfortunately we can’t remember his name. If this helps get him a much deserved pay raise he drove a white electric vehicle he lived in Canada for a few years.
    Fantastic guide
    Danielle_K, Jan 2020
    Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgable, helpful and couldn’t do enough for us. He was more than happy to answer all the questions we had and gave us so much information it really was a brilliant trip.
    Fantastic Tour

    We met our driver in Kraków who then took us around the Jewish Quarter and the Ghetto, stopping to let us visit a pharmacy in the Ghetto that was running during WWII and is now an interactive museum. Finally our driver took us to Schindler's factory, also now a museum. A very insightful tour made all the better by our very knowledgable driver who'se English was excellent
    Excellent tours

    Our guide was knowledgeable and pointed out different landmarks giving the history of these. It was quite a cold day so had the clear plastic down on the sides of electric vehicle. Would have been better if at these stops he’d have asked if anyone wanted to take a photo other than the person sitting beside the driver or at least given us time to unzip the covers and take a quick photo. We weren’t the only ones who thought this.
    Very nice guide
    LuisManuel_S, Sep 2019
    Kuba was my guide (and driver at the same time). He was very nice and took me to many interesting places.
    Really good tour

    Once again the tour guide was amazing. He showed us all the important places and let us a little time to shop.
    The trip to schindlers factory that never was
    darren_c, Jun 2019
    Supposed to be a tour of jewish quarters and ghetto followed by a guided tour of the factoy olnly to be told by our guide that the factory was closed but not untill the tour was underway had we have been informed at the beginning we would have asked for a refund beforehand instead of now trying to get it afterwards which were told could take up to 10 days as viator wont give us it until they have got it bck from the tour provider
    Très déçues
    aliciasaintilan, Jan 2020
    Le guide ne s'est pas présenté donc nous sommes très déçues de ne pas avoir pu visiter l'usine de Schindler ainsi que l'ancien quartier et ghetto juifs. De plus, nous avions payé à l'avance donc nous demandons le remboursement de notre réservation.
    ATTENTION ARNAQUE
    Celine_C, Jan 2020
    Réservation faite le 28 décembre pour un tour de 3h avec entrée au musée de Schindler avec audioguide en français. RDV à 10h, nous étions sur au point de RDV dès 9h40! Le chauffeur est surpris de nous voir... Cela commençait mal... Il y avait 9 italiens avec nous. Il s'excuse en nous disant qu'il ne sait pas si nous pourrons avoir des billets pour l'usine de Schindler... Au bout de 50 minutes de voiture électrique dans le quartier juif, la sentence tombe pas d'entrée pour l'usine de Schindler, plus de billets disponibles... Nous avons payé 29e pour une balade de 50 min! SCANDALEUX. J'ai envoyé 3 mails, personne ne répond, Pourquoi vendre des tours si on sait qu'il n'y pas de tickets? J'attends un remboursement et accessoirement des excuses.
    Un furto non è mai arrivato nessuno all'appuntamento per l'escursione acquistata
    Laura_L, Jan 2020
    Da denunciare un furto, dopo aver pagato e ricevuto il biglietto non è arrivato nessuno all'appuntamento per l'escursione Fabrika Schindler
    Un prestataire qui est absent
    villars2017, Sep 2019
    Arrivée en avance au lieu de rendez vous fixé, prestataire absent, injoignable au téléphone....avec l'aide d'une personne polonaise (agence de voyage du lieu de rendez vous) aucune réponse malgré quatre appels...rendez vous à 9 h eures, départ du lieu : 9 h 40
    Tutto ok
