    This trip was brilliant. We stumbled across this looking for just the factory tickets, and we are glad we found this. We didn’t even know that this concentration camp existed and the tour guide was absolutely brilliant. He gave us so much information, we also were very lucky that is was just the 2 of us. He showed us so many things around the ghetto, allowed us to get in and out to take photos, explained everything we were seeing and answered all our questions. The concentration camp was again very informative. He explained everything we needed to know and more. Gave us the option to skip things if we wanted too and the option to take a different route etc. Picked us up from our accommodation, hassle free and no stress. Transport was lovely also. All in all a fantastic tour which we both would highly recommend if you are looking to not only go into the factory museum but learn about history and the concentration camp which isn’t one everyone knows about.

    This was a great experience. Michael (guide) was extremely knowledgeable. He went above and beyond my expectations on the site visit. I can not say enough good things about him. I am not a big museum person, but Schindler's museum was very informative. It was a bit crowded and hard to get by the other tour groups. Overall, a great time and very informative.

    Group of 11 many on second visit to plaszow. This time chose to have a guide in Michael and Patrick. From start to finish the group were guided seamlessly through the site every question answered and group discussions welcomed . A must for any historical ww2 visit which in many of our groups minds is on a par with Auschwitz birkenau museum all be it on a different format .
