Well Worth The While
AnnMariGrace_S, Apr 2024
I booked an hour away and m glad I did. The tour was very insightful. Plus points that it started near old town, where I am staying. Sofia (I am not sure of the name) was very knowledgeable. She even helped me find a schindler tour when we were already in the factory, even if she wasn’t finished with hers. The Schindler factory tour was starting and I had to rush that I forgot to give her a tip.
Good local insight
Ailish_B, Apr 2024
Yohanna- Very knowledgable guide, spoke multiple languages to accommodate guests. Focused on pronounciation of polish names. Good local facts, with tips for future excursions and facts about upcoming events.

An excellent tour led by an amazing guide
Craig_W, Feb 2024
This is a truly excellent tour. The guide, Greg, was exceptionally knowledgeable and took us on a fascinating tour of the Jewish quarter of Krakow. The tour follows ancient and modern Jewish history. The guide was very flexible and accommodated our interests and discussions. This is money very well spent!!
Great walking tour
William_C, Jan 2024
Our guide, Krzysztof, was very personable and knowledgeable. The tour was interesting and diverse, with many interesting details of Jewish history, Schindler’s List movie, and also Kraków’s past. He showed us a few really cool, cafes/ places in Kazimierz, and we had a coffee and a shot of vodka in one of them for our break. It was a lot of walking but we loved that. The tour was a very enjoyable experience.
Excellent Jewish Quarter Tour

Jewish Quarter tour - above and beyond what we were expecting!
Clare_P, Nov 2023
Our tour guide Christopher was extremely knowledgeable and without him we would have missed out on so much in beautiful Krakow. A must for anyone visiting this beautiful city.
Bringing the Jewish quarter to life.
Angela_W, Nov 2023
Excellent guide, André, brought the Jewish area to life with a wealth of interesting factual knowledge and anecdotes.
Great value for money from a very informative guide
Jayne_R, Oct 2023
The history behind the buildings. The Jewish synagogue and cemetery. The walk through the memorial park with famous Jews who are celebrated after the war. The tradegy about the Jewish children killed in the ghetto on the 28th October. The information about the famous folk singer. Very, very informative. X
Great walk.
Darren_K, Oct 2023
We both Loved the walk. Really knowledgeable guide and a great understanding of the history of Krakow.
Worth it
Paul_D, Oct 2023
Very interesting and the guide did a great job. I’m not Jewish but found it fascinating. We finished it off with the Schindler factory tour that was also well worth it. Only thing I would suggest is a break in the middle for a seat/coffee as you are on your feet a lot.
A Meaningful Experience
Michael_W, Oct 2023
A rich history, obviously much of it tragic, was explained and illustrated with skill and compassion. Marcin was a wonderful guide who brought the history of Jewish Krakow to life. I recommend this tour without reservation.
Very good
Gillian_T, Oct 2023
Gregor was a very good guide and explained the history well. Would highly recommend,good for all ages.
Jewish Ghetto Walking Tour
Albert_E, Oct 2023
Joanna was our guide and just a wealth of information on the history of Gdansk and the Jewish Ghetto. We learned so much and would highly recommend this tour, although have to say that it is a lot of walking.
Very knowledgeable guide
Antje_P, Oct 2023
Our guide Krzysztof was great and very knowledgeable. He gave us a super interesting tour, absolutely worth it!
Brilliant knowledgeable
Andrew_M, Oct 2023
How enthusiastic the guide was. How much knowledge the guide had and how great it was to have a break during the tour to visit one of the buildings and steeped in so much history.
Disappointing
Becky_B, Aug 2023
Honestly just found this a bit disappointing. The guide was friendly but I didn’t feel like I learned very much. I also felt that considering this was a tour of the Jewish area that the Holocaust and Jewish suffering in general should have been covered in much more detail.
A must tour!!!
Ivan_A, Aug 2023
Amazing tour in Krakow. The guide is local and with great knowledge of the city. Good tips, recommendations and stories. I fully recommend this tour.
Amazing tour!
Baila_M, Aug 2023
It was wonderful! The guide gave a thorough history of the Jews of Krakow, and showed us all around. He was very knowledgeable of the history and culture of the Jewish people. I would 100% recommend this tour to others.
