What people are saying about Tatra Mountains

Great tour which is very informative and adds a lot of context to the things you may have read about the holocaust previously. The Jewish Getto tour covers a lot of ground and is very interesting. The Oskar Schindler Museum is a little rushed and you miss a lot of the detail as you are moved through quite quickly. The plus side is that our guide was very knowledgeable and spoke very clearly and had all the facts. Overall, whilst we had different expectations of what we were going to see and do, we left very happy and felt informed and with a little more understanding of what the people endured. We would highly recommend if you are short on time and want to do it with a guide for the relevant facts.

Highly recommend this tour. Guide was brilliant, knew what he was talking about, gave us time to stop and look, especially in the Ghetto. Learnt so much, you won’t be disappointed.
