This was a great tour. The guide was friendly, informative and answered all of our questions. It was nice to be in a small group with just 4 of us. I would recommend to anyone visiting Krakow and wanting an introduction to Jewish history in the city. To note the tour was a lot of walking and moved quite quickly, fine for us but worth noting for anyone who is not a happy walker!

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Polish, Krakow, and Jewish histories. And it goes without saying, but it is a lot of walking about 5 miles in total, from Old Town to Schindler's Factory.

The guide was on time, friendly and knowledgable. There was some amount of walking so make sure what you wear is appropriate for the weather and the walk. The tour didn't end outside the Schindler's factory, it ended at the Ghetto Main Square. However, the Tour guide did take those who wish to visit Schindler's factory to the door which was very nice.

It would be better if the tour actually include walking through inside where the ghetto used to be.
