    We were met on time by the guide at the meeting place. Surprisingly there were only the 2 of us in the tour. The booking said we would be taken in an executive bus, however we weren’t and we walked around in freezing drizzle. The guide was very knowledgeable and passed on lots of excellent and informative facts about life in the ghetto; he was clearly very passionate about it. However between stops we walked in silence and we felt he could have made more of an effort to convert with us.

    An excellent guide that took the time to show and explain to us the Jewish ghetto area. The details and information was explained so precisely that I would definitely recommend this tour. It certainly supported a deep respect and understanding for the area and what happened to the Jewish residents being held there.

    The tour was very interesting. The city guide was very good. She showed us so much that the tour actually took much longer.
