Monika is very knowledgeable about Jewish culture and is very keen to explain clearly the numerous stories of the Jewish Quarter. In the Schindler's Factory, she took time to develop the prominent events of the ghetto and highlighted the best parts of the museum. During our walk, I also had the opportunity to taste the best ice creams of Krakow ! Highly recommended !

This tour was fantastic. Tomasz had so much great information to share with us and he was so thoughtful - even brought water bottles for us on a hot day. He answered all of our questions and really explained all the history so well.

Ik had de rondleiding van Mateusz. Hij was zeer vriendelijk en bezit over een geweldige kennis. Hij vertelt goed en erg actief. Ik heb het echt als meerwaarde ervaren. Het was gezellig en ik heb de geschiedenis van Polen heel anders ervaren.

Excellent tour conducted by an excellent guide, who was very knowledgeable. Mateusz helped me to connect past events to the sites we visited and how those events shaped modern life in a sobering way. Outstanding tour, I definitely recommend!

Perfect way to start my visit to Kraków. Got tons of insights I couldn’t have gotten otherwise and an excellent orientation to the neighborhood that allowed me to explore by myself the rest of the weekend. Highly recommend!!!

Paweł was a wonderful guide. I felt like I was walking through the streets guided by an insightful friend :) My favourite parts were our conversations, and learning a local's perspective and personal stories. Would recommend for anyone visiting Kraków!
