Our guide Gregory was very knowledgeable and did a great job of showing a 30-people-group around snowed Krakow. We walked for 3 hours while snow fell incessantly and got the tram back! The group was big because it was Easter Sunday and many other attractions were closed. Since this tour was one of the few running, many people decided to join, I guess. We were taken to see the place were scenes of the Schindler's List were shot and the birth place of Helena Rubinstein. We could not visit Oscar Schindler's factory because it was closed on Easter Sunday 31/03/13, but will definitely go back sometime in the summer to learn more about the fascinating story behind it. Great tour.
The weather was treacherous and our guide was delayed some 15 min because of the snow. We had a second tour booked in the afternoon which meant we had to get back slightly earlier that normal. He was very accommodating, charismatic and funny. Passionate about his country and people and especially Nowa Huta (being a resident himself!!) Even without formally studying English, his grasp of the language and ability to make universal jokes, had us and a Dutch couple in stitches. It was as cold inside the Nisa as it was outside, but this iconic vehicle got us everywhere we needed to, no matter how much snow was thrown at it. Definitely an experience worth having.
