Great way to get acquainted with the city!
We really enjoyed our tour with Aleksander! After doing a ton of walking in cities before Krakow, we really wanted to rest without missing out on our sightseeing. This was an amazing affordable option. We got to see many major sites of Krakow while the guide provided history and significance. It was great to get to decide where we wanted to spend the remaining time we had there while seeing everything too. Aleksander was informative and even provided us with blankets when it got cold.

gingerbread vodka
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.

Discover how much he did to save the Jewish people
This museum covers the Nazi occupation of Krakow during World War 2. It shows how Oskar Schindler treated the Polish and Jews he employed and what he did to save as many of them as he could. When you first start your visit there is a cinema where a few of the Schindler Jews tell what he did to help them and save them. You start on the second floor and work your way down. There are lots of displays and videos of people describing what life was like during the occupation. This museum has wheelchair access and you can pay for a guided tour even though all displays have Polish and English descriptions. There is only a slight mention of the movie Schindler's List and that is right at the end near the cafe. A limited number of free lockers are available for you to store bags and jackets during your visit. Purchase your tickets in advance as those people are let in first. If there are any spots left then walk in visitors are allowed. We didn't purchase tickets in advance but got there 20 minutes before opening time so were near the front of the queue and were allowed in. We did hear people saying the museum was full by 11 am the previous day and lined up early this time. The #3 tram will get you from the old town across the river to the museum. Get off at the first tram stop after you cross the river and exit to the right behind the tram. Follow the signs on the street poles for a short 5 minute walk to the museum. Allow around 3 hours to properly visit the museum. Entry to the factory is free on Monday but is closed the first Monday of each month.

The first tour was the Old town walking tour, our Guide for this was a very knowledgable guy called Jack. We had eight people in this group which was very manageable to keep everyone together as with the free walking tours the groups were huge and people drifted away from the group!! The tour shows the historical buildings and churches a climb up to the Wawel Castle which was breathtaking. The tour takes about three hours but plenty of stops to hear the comments from Jack who was more than pleased to answer any questions. We had our father who had difficulty in walking but managed to keep up with the rest of the group. I think it is a must to go on these tours to find out as much information as possible. The second walking tour was around the jewish quarter which I found more interesting, being shown around where schlinders film had been filmed in the Kazimierz part of the town. We were shown the most popular synagogues and learning the history of the Holocaust. We ended up at the schlinders factory on the other side of the river and saw where the ghetto was. The tour ended at the factory where you could purchase the tickets. This tour was again with Jack, again very very interesting experience.

My wife and I took 2 tours with this company last week. The first was the Auschwitz and Birkenhau Tour. We were well looked after by the Discover Tour guide and driver. When we got to Auschwitz we were handed over to one of their tour guides. I believe her name was Anna. She looked after us for the Auschwitz and Birkenhau part. She was a very good tour guide who spoke good English. She had a passion in what she was telling us and was very emotional with it. She was very knowledgeable about the 2 sights and was not following a script like some tour guide do. The next day we went with Discover Cracow to the Salt Mine and once again we were well looked after. The company tour guide took us through the Salt Mine with one of the Salt Mine guides and once again we were provided with detailed account of the history of the mine. Both the Auschwitz and Salt Mine tour are well worth doing whist in Krakow and in my opinion Discover Cracow is a good company to do it with.

Extraordinary
I have rarely seen anything this extraordinary. You start by going down a 'spiral' staircase that is square in cross-section and which seems infinite. There follows a 2 km walk though tunnels that frequently widen into display areas, chapels, ponds, son et lumiere, caverns. It is one wonder after another, difficult to encapsulate in words or pictures. The return to the surface is, mercifully, by a fast lift. Salt carvings, salt chandeliers, Salt statues. Goethe apparently called it a 'wonder of the world' in the 1790s - I have to agree with him. Our trip was marred slightly by a guide who thought that his role was to tell jokes rather than introduce the mine - but the sheer profusion and scale of the exhibits shone through his frail ego. I overheard other guides who were excellent. It is absolutely fascinating - please go! I went as part of a group - a category not included below in trip Advisor's list, so I have had to tick 'solo'.

Great hosts, great experience and great Beer!
Just a fantastic little tour of 3 Local Pubs/Brewery's.
Goksel emailed me a few days before we arrived to ask how much we knew about the Craft Beer movement. This meaning they could tailor the tour to our group.
Our guides on the tour were Kamila and Goksel, they really were the stars of this tour. They made our evening fun and informative.
A Great selection of tasty beers and nibbles were ahead for us over the 3 hours.
The tour was paced perfectly and was very laid back which helped the atmosphere in our group.
I highly recommend booking this tour of you enjoy beer or a smaller stag/hen trip.
Kamila and Goksel THANK YOU!!

Overall a really good experience
This was a really great way to see the city if you are tight for time. We chose to do this today which was our last day, as we had planned tours the previous days. The guide/ driver was so helpful and so friendly. We unfortunately didn’t get his name, but whoever was driving the 9:30 tour today, was really great!! We purchased tickets separately for Schindler’s factory, which you have an hour in. At times it does feel rushed because you can’t stop and look at everything but you get a good enough feel for the museum. Overall a really good experience I would highly recommend!!

Excellent overview starting with the beginning of WW 2 in Poland
All of the guided tours were filled. We obtained our self guided tickets at the ticket office at the back of the Cloth Hall with a set time to arrive. We were so glad we were not with a guided tour. Everything has written explanations & you can go at your own pace. Actually when there is a group it tends to clog up the path as at some places the path is narrow. The museum is not just about the story of Oskar Schindler. It tells the story of Poland & the Jewish people. Some pictures & sounds were graphic but you leave knowing the truth about the suffering of the people.

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.
Historical Tour of Krakow’s Wawel Royal Hill
If it's the only thing you do in Krakow...
...do this!!!

Fantastic tour: see beautiful countryside, learn things about Nazi culture that you've never heard or read, view the magnificent beauty of hundreds of years of labor in the salt mine.
Our driver picked us up at our door, spoke great English, stopped us at a great restaurant, and dropped us wherever we wanted to go.
One thing: you need a soft schedule that allows for 10 hours OR MORE. There are a lot of people in both locations so the timing is variable.

What a fantastic experience. Our guide was friendly and easy going and a mine of information. He really seemed to be enjoying taking us around the area and seemed genuinely proud of 'his city'. He spoke about how his family we're influenced by the events of the 50's, 60's, 70's and 80's and was genuinely interested in our understanding of the social and political changes as the country moved from the 1950's to the present day. Loved the vintage car too!

Great experience
I'm so glad we paid for this and didn't just go to the factory on our own. The guide turned up bang on time and was really knowledgeable, spoke good English and told us so many facts as we went round. Its not just about Schindler, we were immersed in the horrible history of the war. Really recommend this trip. Also note that if you want to go without the pre booked guided tour they only allow so many in each day so you need to get there early.

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.

Wow!
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

Amazing underground complex
The must do if you are in Krakow. The tour is about 3km walk through the network of caves - you start by descending approx 60 meters via wooden stairs so get ready for some physical excercise. The caves and corridors, which were created in the past 500 years of salt mining is a unique sightseeing - some of the rooms can accommodate hundreds of people. It is an exciting excurse to the history of salt mining.

We booked through the hotel on arrival into Krakow to go to Auschwitz and the Salt Mines. It was brilliant value for money and we thoroughly enjoyed the trips. Auschwitz was very emotional but something that everyone should visit if they get the chance.
The Salt Mines were amazing although be aware of the 380 steps down straight away and then a couple of hundred after. You do get a lift up (thank god).

CRAFT BEER TOUR KRAKOW
The decision to go on the craft beer tour of Krakow was a great one. With the fantastic and helpful Sebastian as our host we were guided through the streets of Krakow's jewish quarter sampling some of Krakow's finest beers as well as some more international ones too.

I would thoroughly recommend the tour - it was both fun and interactive and the perfect way to spend a sunny afternoon.
