  • "Schindler's Factory is a great exhibition although I would recommend getting a guided tour of the factory (additional to this tour) as it is very large and a lot to take in on your own." See review

Great Walking Tour of Kazimierz and Podgórze

, Oct 2019
Our tour was on a Saturday and as a result most the Jewish Synagogues and the Cemetary (with exception to the Old Synagogue) were closed for The Sabbath. This was disappointing but my mistake. Despite this there was only 2 people on the tour and our tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable. She showed us around all of the sites explaining the history and significance of each. We observed a lot of the architecture and listened to some interesting stories about the places visited. Schindler's Factory is a great exhibition although I would recommend getting a guided tour of the factory (additional to this tour) as it is very large and a lot to take in on your own. Our guide recommended places top eat and drink we we did and we were not disappointed. Everywhere is easy to walk to. Highly recommend (But check Jewish Religious Observations/Holidays before booking if you want to access these areas)

Excursion privée - patrimoine juif

L’heure de l’excursion a changé de 11h00 am à 9h00 am sans notre accord. Pour ce genre de réservation avec Viator, il est important de rien planifier pour la journée entière au complet, car les heures sont très changeantes. Notre guide était parfaite.
