The very extensive tour, after all 5 hours in total, included 3 combined individual tours and each one was extremely interesting and worth the money. The tour through the Jewish quarter and Schindler's factory with subsequent ghetto tour are an absolute must for every visitor. Our tour guide Philipp had extensive background knowledge and was able to convey this in an exciting way. I can only recommend this tour to everyone.
