Wonderful experience! The guides are great at explaining and have great knowledge in history and brings everything into life. Would highly recommend, the tours are operated separately but very successful and we weren’t lost and guided all the way.

Fantastic experience, Olga was our tour guide for Schindler's factory and the Jewish ghetto, then Krzysztof drove us to the salt mines. Both very knowledgeable and very good tour guides. I can't wait to get back to Poland

Olga made the tour fascinating, passionate and caring about her subject.
