The site of Plaszow is now just a large public space dotted with information boards, memorials and building ruins. We are so pleased we booked a Guide to bring what was a place of unimaginable horror back to life. Our Guide, Olga, was just fantastic. She was extremely knowledgable, very enthusiastic and just a lovely, friendly lady. Olga even walked us to the nearest bus stop and helped us catch the correct bus back into Old Town. Olga explained the official plans to finally turn the entire site into a more formal museum location which when once completed we hope to return to visit again. If your visit to Krakow is one of interest in WWII then Plaszow is somewhere you really must visit to experience, and definitely go with the help of Olga.

Phil the tour guide was absolutely amazing. Fantastic English, so knowledgable and was able to answer every single question we had. He was a pleasure to be around and made us feel like the first customers he’d ever had. Just wish we could have tipped him more (cashless society habits). Thank you very much Phil!

Young, competent tour guide who tried very hard and gave additional information in English. German leadership was spoken from the tape.

Great tour if you love history and want to learn more about the events that happened during World War II.
