Walking tour of the Jewish 1/4 ghetto & Schindlers factory
Scott_J, Mar 2022
Our guide was on time to collect us a lovely person who was obviously very knowledgeable & passionate about her city. Walking tour of a lovely crisp morning leaving the old town into the Jewish 1/4 with a look round a synagogue. Then across to the former ghetto then onto Schindlers factory were tickets were organised & we got access to the museum. At this point the guide said goodbye & we made our own way around the museum which is excellent. Obviously far to much history to discuss but lots of things pointed out & recommendations made that allowed you to confidently return to explore the tour route. The tour was over a couple of hours not including the museum which could take hours to see & read everything. This is a walking tour All on pavements within the city. Would definetely recommend & would do again.
Great Walking Tour of Kazimierz and Podgórze

Our tour was on a Saturday and as a result most the Jewish Synagogues and the Cemetary (with exception to the Old Synagogue) were closed for The Sabbath. This was disappointing but my mistake. Despite this there was only 2 people on the tour and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She showed us around all of the sites explaining the history and significance of each. We observed a lot of the architecture and listened to some interesting stories about the places visited. Schindler's Factory is a great exhibition although I would recommend getting a guided tour of the factory (additional to this tour) as it is very large and a lot to take in on your own. Our guide recommended places top eat and drink we we did and we were not disappointed. Everywhere is easy to walk to. Highly recommend (But check Jewish Religious Observations/Holidays before booking if you want to access these areas)
A must do when in Krakow

Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative. We enjoyed a walk around the jewish quarter while learning about the very sad chapter of Jewish history in Krakow during WWII. The museum was amazing!

L’heure de l’excursion a changé de 11h00 am à 9h00 am sans notre accord. Pour ce genre de réservation avec Viator, il est important de rien planifier pour la journée entière au complet, car les heures sont très changeantes. Notre guide était parfaite.
découverte innoubliable
