If you have seen the movie you must do this tour. Great guide providing all the information and history you would want. Note however that there is quite a bit of walking.

Very nicely done but nothing remains of the original machinery. This focuses on the people and town.

good tour done by a terrible guide which do not allowed us to video tape and to ask her elisabeth a short old polish woman for permission which I do not know why if ever there is a tour to mandate such a rule. you can all just go the jewish quarter and take a buggy car that conducts the tour and they allowed video taping of the information about the jewish folks in that area. as for oscar, you can just take a tram and head for the Schindler tour. yes better to go early in the morning before the crowds comes in to queue for the tickets.

Very interesting to see the old Jewish sector of Krakow. Great guide. We then did the tour of Schindler's Factory which is not to be missed. Unbelievable exhibit about the roundup of the Jews in Poland and their treatment at the hands of the Nazis.

Interesting tour although I would have liked more of how the factory looked, like. Like the tour around the ghetto with a knowledgeable guide.

Our guide was on time, spoke good English and was very knowledgeable. Interesting content and the Schindler's Museum was great.
