Great tour which is very informative and adds a lot of context to the things you may have read about the holocaust previously. The Jewish Getto tour covers a lot of ground and is very interesting. The Oskar Schindler Museum is a little rushed and you miss a lot of the detail as you are moved through quite quickly. The plus side is that our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly and had all the facts. Overall, whilst we had different expectations of what we were going to see and do, we left very happy and felt informed and with a little more understanding of what the people endured. We would highly recommend if you are short on time and want to do it with a guide for the relevant facts.

Wonderful tour -- the Schindler Factory tour was incredible and a huge plus to our trip. So glad we did it with Get Your Guide. Our guide was knowledgeable and the tour so very informative. We learned so much about Poland and the lead up to WWII plus what happened during the war. Would highly recommend this tour with Get Your Guide.
