Valentino was a great guide. He gave us a really good insight on the Jewish district and its history. I can definitely recommend this tour. The only thing that wasn’t completely clear from the description is that you’ll be driving around in a golf cart. Don’t be irritated that the tour starts in the old town, you’ll be driving to Kazimierz and Valentino offered us to drop us off anywhere along the way back to the old town. I can definitely recommend the tour

It was very comfortable and everything went as it was described. The tour ended in front of the Schindler factory. Here we pulled the ticket and it was really exciting and, above all, very unseen. Each room in the museum was staged according to the theme. Well worth it.
