    Didn't book a tour directly with the memorial site far enough in advance (English tours were all booked out) so I found this option instead, which I think (fortunately) turned out to be just the same experience (same cost, same tour) if not slightly better (b/c it included the bus from the city). The tour guide we had was outstanding. Definitely a heavy experience, but highly worthwhile. Recommend.

    My 13 year old son and I booked our tickets hours before the tour very easily online. We arrived at the meetup point to find a very comfortable bus and friendly staff. We enjoyed the drive to Auschwitz and the movie played on our trip was very informative. Taking the tour with the bus shuttle was so much easier than navigating public transportation on our own. The guided tour was excellent and covered everything. We had plenty of time outside of the tours with the breaks that were given to us to use the washroom and eat our food we’d brought along. I’d recommend this tour if you are considering Auschwitz. We paid the lowest price for the tour with bus trip - you won’t find a better price! And we only had 15 people in our English tour group which was very comfortable. I give this tour a 10/10!

    Disappointed because the guide was in a hurry.

    The tour started with a film in the bus wij a film thats oké. We had a feeling chat pur guide was in hurry. Thee was no possibility to look around. And she had a speachproblem that made it hard to listen and understand her and sometimes we lost contact with her on the system. We visited Auswithz before and at that moment there was more space for watching and we visited more buildings in Birkenau and in Auswitz. Travelparts were well organized.
