This is a must visit. It totally explains what happened before the holocaust really took hold. The story of everyday people and the changes made to every single life.. everyone was effected in some way. The very beginning through to the end of a terrible era of atrocity... we had a superb guide called Anya who explained it all and really brought the brutality Home to us. I would recommend a guide wholeheartedly

Description

Forget the here and now for a couple of hours and see Krakow as it existed more than 70 years ago on a guided tour of Oskar Schindler’s Factory.

Hear about World War II in the country where it started, walk along the cobblestone streets of wartime Krakow among the city’s inhabitants, and be overwhelmed by the omnipresent existence of the enemy.

Enter narrow passages and overpopulated apartments in the Ghetto, find weapons in a resistance house, and feel the horror of being imprisoned and interrogated. Try to imagine your life in hiding, and finally feel the bittersweet joy of being liberated by the Soviet army.

Please note that a printed ticket must be handed in at the beginning of the tour.

The tour depends on the opening hours of the museum and therefore may be cancelled a few days prior to the scheduled date.

An excellent guided tour! Thank you Anna. Very informative and the personal touch , stories of your grandparents was appreciated. We learnt far much with you than if we had gone round on our own. I can't quite believe how quickly Krakow was occupied over that week in September 1939. And how people were treated.

I'd recommend this tour to anyone visiting! Popped next door to the art museum after for coffee and cake! Nice.

Brilliant tour - gave us an insight to Krakow that we wouldn't have got any other way. Luckily we were the only ones on the tour - it was very personalised.
Saw much of the old Krakow that is on the road less troden that few other tourtists would experience. Gingerbread vodka and dumbling jars one of the many indellible memories. thanks so much, we're still talking about the day some weeks later.
Do yourself a favor, book this tour and don't look any further!
I'm extremely glad I booked this tour! Everyone involved were very helpful and knowledgeable. The bus they use it's comfortable; and the pace is very manageable. They will come to pick you up (and drop you off) at your hotel if you request to. Small group, which is great because you may even get to know other people in the group. They provide you with a good size lunch; the guides are very knowledgeable and they make a very good effort to keep the group together. Truly enjoyed this tour. I haven't downloaded my images from my camera, so I hope I can come back and upload them later.
