Great Tour

The guide was great and the recorded narrative was great. Would have liked a little longer at Oskar Schindler's Museum. We only stopped outside the aviation museum so not sure why it says that you visit it; that said the trip was still great.

It was gigantic and touching! Aneta J. is a great guide with so much knowledge and attention to detail. We were moved and excited at the same time! Thanks

Very good experience and the Pauline guide super friendly and with a fairly broad handling of the subject, the tour was very pleasant
