Honestly, the factory tour was very creative, in depth, and in line with history. The guide walked us through as if we were reading a storybook. Giving us all the important details, biased within sides, and made the experience very enjoyable. I felt bad that others were listening in and following our tour because Anja wasn’t getting paid for those extra ears, but she was so good at explaining moments of history. 10/10

Very interesting guided tour in French. We do not only discover Oscar Schindler's factory but also a permanent exhibition on Nazi barbarism. It is a real immersion in the darkness of the second world war ...

Fabulous displays and sound effects. We could have spent the entire day there but really enjoyed our guide.

It was very interesting, you get to know a lot about what it was like in Krakow during the war.

AMAZING Guide and experience. Alot of information which is great.
