The tour through the Kazimierz district of Kraków was carried out by a very knowledgeable and funny tour guide. The guide had a very good knowledge of German and a very high level of knowledge in relation to the history of Krakow. The tour not only gave us an insight into the history of Krakow, but also into the cultural aspects of Judaism. The expectations of the tour were definitely exceeded and I can recommend it to anyone who is also interested in getting to know Krakow outside of the tourist hotspots.
