Our guide, Phillip, met us at the designated place and time, ready to go. He was extremely knowledgable, polite, engaging and conducted the tour at a pace that suited us. It turned out that myself and my parents were the only ones for the Jewish Quarter tour. More joined us in Schlinder’s Factory Museum - definitely worth a visit to gain an understanding of WW2 in Poland. The last bit of the tour was of the former ghetto, where not much remains anymore, but Phillip explained this and took us to where the remains were. If I come again, I’d love to be able to book with Phillip directly. He spoke great English, was fun and nothing was too much.

Turen får 4 stjerner, men faktisk mest på grund af vores fantastiske guide Olga. Magen til indlevelse og fortællingsglæde skal man lede længe efter. Hun var ganske fantastisk. Turen rundt på Schindlers fabrik var desværre ikke hvad vi havde forventet, og der var alt for mange mennesker. Det handlede selvfølgelig meget om jøderne og ghettoen, men ikke så meget om selve fabrikken. Alt i alt var vi dog fuldt ud tilfredse med turen.

Eine sehr schöne und informative Tour, man sieht und erfährt so viel Interessantes zum jüdischen Leben in Krakau. Wir hatten mit Monika aber auch eine außerordentlich kompetente und nette Führerin. Wären wir allein gegangen, hätten wir auch vieles übersehen, manches sieht man erst, wenn man darauf aufmerksam gemacht wird. Wir können eine uneingeschränkte Empfehlung aussprechen und bedanken uns noch einmal für den schönen Tag.
