About the tour

The Jews who in the Middle Ages were prosecuted in Western Europe started settling in Kazimierz and soon this city became a place of Jewish prosperity. It is here where you can find Jewish synagogues, cozy and tiny streets on which the hustle and bustle of Jewish life were prevailing before the catastrophe of WW2. See the oldest synagogue in Poland, trace the filming spots of the ‘Schindler’s List’, learn who are Ashkenazim and Sephardi, get to know Helena Rubinstein, Roman Polanski, Ludwig Zamenhof, and Maximilian Faktorowicz. Join us for 2.5-hour tour where we will discover the Jewish heritage in Krakow, get to know their traditions and exciting people who were creating the Jewish history in Poland.

What's the price?

A guruwalk is a pay-what-you want walking tour, which means, it's completely free to book and join the group, but the 'guru' expects to be rewarded once the tour ends. Some people give 5, some people give 50, you choose the price.

Reservations in advance are mandatory because if the 'guru' doesn't see any bookings one day, she will not show up at the meeting point. Or if she has too many 'walkers' that day, won't allow you to join without the reservation. Booking is completely free, fast and easy. Book your guruwalk now!

We attended both the old town and Jewish quarters tours. Bart and Matt were both very enthusiastic about their city, and kept us engaged throughout. Bart told us about the various legends vs historical stories, including the story of the dragon. Matt was very informative in both the history of Kraków and the Jewish quarters. The Jewish quarters tour provided a perfect introduction to life for the Jews during World War Two, I would highly recommend (especially if you are also planning to visit Auschwitz).

Both guides made amazing suggestions of the various attractions we should visiting it during our stay in the city.

Thank you so much for making our visit to Kraków so informative.
