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.

Following the film...
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.

Well organized
The tour covers every bit possible in the available time. It is Well organized and the guide was great! Do take the tour but also do go for a day by yourself! 2 tons of human hair is too much to take in while walking and listening to the guide at the same time. You will need time to ponder... More time than you at first think you will need....
A taste of polish culture
As a tourist, one visits many places of interest. This folk show is another aspect to taste polish culture; beautifully embroided costumes, jolly music, dancing and singers. All of this can be enjoyed in a typical log chalet with an abundance of food and drink. Good value for money. Enjoyed the evening very much, therefore I highly recommend it.
I was very happy with my tour. Punctual, friendly and efficient staff. Happy days😀

Wonderful!
We were well looked after on their wonderful tour. Pickup and drop off were reliable, as was the handover to the onsite guide. The van was clean, roomy, comfortable.
We tour itself was very interesting and we highly recommend it when on vacation in Krakow.

Awesome tour!
Ticket line incredibly long. Arrived without pre purchased tickets early afternoon, one ticket window open only, on line probably an hour behind possibly 150people. Took English speaking tour. Guide extremely knowledgeable. Wear sneakers! Cobblestone-like walking surface leads to tired feet. Beautiful, beautiful, carvings etc. very informative and amazing tour. We didn’t eat at restaurant but food looked and smelled delicious. Don’t miss museum tour at end. More to see outside mine when you exit. Leave a little time to walk around outside. Highly recommended.
