Full description
Explore the Jewish heritage of the city of Krakow on a guided tour. Begin outside the Old Synagogue in the Kazimierz district, home to the Jewish community for centuries. Explore the charming streets of this now trendy neighborhood with your guide, as you learn about the history of Jewish people in Krakow. Next, visit Oskar Schindler's Enamel Factory. Learn about the horrors of the Holocaust, and Oskar Schindler's heroic efforts to save Jewish people from the concentration camps operated by the Nazi regime. Finally, make your way to the site of the former Jewish ghetto, where many Jews were forced to live during the Nazi occupation of Poland. Learn about the suffering and overcrowded conditions endured by the Jewish community.

Excellent tour with a really knowledgable, friendly guide. Filip went above & beyond to teach us about the history of the area before we started the tour & answered any questions we had. I was on the tour with my partner and we both kept saying how glad we were we did the guided tour of Kazimierz, Schindler’s Factory and the Ghetto, as we would have had none of the knowledge of what we were looking at, and why, had we just toured the area ourselves. Filip also brought along printed photos of the areas we were looking at from different points in history, to show what different places looked like before, during and after the war. Would highly recommend anyone visiting Krakow to do this tour as you’ll learn so much about the whole area during tour trip. 10/10

The very extensive tour, after all 5 hours in total, included 3 combined individual tours and each one was extremely interesting and worth the money. The tour through the Jewish quarter and Schindler's factory with subsequent ghetto tour are an absolute must for every visitor. Our tour guide Philipp had extensive background knowledge and was able to convey this in an exciting way. I can only recommend this tour to everyone.
