Experience was informative the only downside to the day was the fact that while we were in a guided tour other people were on their own and was walking past us as well as talking which was disconcerting while trying to listen to the guide. As always time is a issue and it felt a bit rushed. But the guide was really good and made the day really enjoyable

I believe the guide was probably very knowledgeable but unfortunately we struggled to understand a lot of what was being said as his first language wasn't English. Also, although no fault of the guide, the museum allowed too many visitors and tours in at one time. This resulted in us feeling a bit rushed and unable to spend time reading a lit of the exhibit information. We ended up not going onto the ghetto tour after the factory because of this. This made us feel a bit let down.

Despite a very busy period and a late start to the tour, our guide Margot was extremely helpful and professional in understanding the various political, economic and moral aspects of this dark period in history. Thanks again for all her pertinent comments.

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and she was able to keep the group interested and had our full attention throughout. Was able to answer any questions from the group. I would suggest to anyone visiting Krakow to do the Schindler factory tour and the ghetto tour. We have to remember the past .

Walk the corridors of Schindler’s Enamel Factory- a forced labour camp. Even though it was a forced labour camp, the food portion provided to the Jewish labourers was more than that in the other labour camps. Learn more about the history of Jewish and Polish inhabitants of Krakow during World War II. This exhibition is in the Administrative Building of the Enamel Factory. Your guide will let you in on the history and facts of everything that took place here at the Factory as you explore it.

Walk through the streets of Podgórze, where the Ghetto used to be. Learn about how more than 15,000 Jews were made to stay within the boundaries of the Ghetto in extreme living conditions.

In the Ghetto, visit a Jewish apartment to learn more about the lives lived by the Jewish people forced to live here.

The Steven Spielberg movie Schindler's List brings out the essence of how Oskar Schindler employed more than 1000 Jews in his Enamel Factory before they could be taken to the Holocaust.

Get an insight into the experiences of the Jewish people who lived in the Ghetto as you explore it with your tour guide.
