Our guide was very good at explaining the history of the era. It gave us a dimension that no guide book could.There was not a lot to see, but the history unfolded before us. Any history buff would love this.

Brilliant tour thanks to the knowledge of Jacob our tour guide. Had to have a quiet chuckle about the meeting the guide with a black umbrella. Fascinating insight into the history of the Czech Republic. Well worth the tour.

Stare Mesto (Old Town)
One of the oldest neighborhoods in town represents the
medieval heart of Prague. It’s no surprise it is
bustling with tourists every time of day. Križovnický
square, overlooking Charles Bridge with Prague Castle
in the background, is probably the most beautiful
square in the city. Its unique historical atmosphere
of gothic houses and churches, cobblestone streets and
squares, and stone towers blend together with the

Oskar Schindler Museum or Galicia Jewish Museum (5 Replies)
I am reposting this because my first version wasn't very clear. We are already planning to visit the Museum of World War II in Gdansk and to visit Auschwitz. We only have time to visit one more museum--either the Oskar Schindler Museum or the Galicia Jewish Museum. For ONLY the people who have visited both museums, which do you think is better and would better complement the other two sites that we are visiting? Thank you for your help.

It depends on what you're interested in - the Museum in the Schindler Factory is a branch of the National Museum and has a much bigger and more comprehensive collection and exhibit of life in Krakow during WW2 (with a small exhibit dedicated to Schindler). The Galicia Museum is also fantastic but much smaller, and focuses mostly on the Jewish life in Galicia before WW2.

Outstanding!!!!!! I loved this tour. It's worth the price. I took the tour in February and loved it. I really learned a lot and found Marek to be authentic and very engaging. I actually wished Marek offered more tours because I would take anything he offered. You won't be disappointed.
