Traveler Tips

Tour finishes over other side of the river so need to make own way back but it was straight forward.

Honestly just found this a bit disappointing. The guide was friendly but I didn’t feel like I learned very much. I also felt that considering this was a tour of the Jewish area that the Holocaust and Jewish suffering in general should have been covered in much more detail.
A must tour!!!

Amazing tour in Krakow. The guide is local and with great knowledge of the city. Good tips, recommendations and stories. I fully recommend this tour.
Amazing tour!

It was wonderful! The guide gave a thorough history of the Jews of Krakow, and showed us all around. He was very knowledgeable of the history and culture of the Jewish people. I would 100% recommend this tour to others.
Friendly and informative

Excellent tour with very knowledgable guide Joanne. It was a small group size which meant you could hear everything well
OK tour

Joanna is a great guide. Tour wasn’t quite what I’d anticipated…after seeing Prague’s Jewish neighborhood, I was a bit disappointed in Kazimiersz.

Very knowledgeable guide
Susan_L, Jun 2023
Our guide was so enthusiastic and knowledgeable that we learned a great deal. Very informative and interesting. The only slightly negative point is that we would have liked a 10 minute bathroom/ drink break half way through? But overall very good.

Great tour and well worth it!

Joanna was an excellent guide with a great personality. Only 6 of us on the tour which made it intimate. Great to have a personal guide, we learned lots about the Jewish way of life.
The tour made the history...
