Everything was exactly as promised. The pickup was on time, everything went exactly as promised. The visit is a story in itself, but so worth getting a reminder of how cruel we humans can be, so history never repeats itself. Travel time from Krakow is approx. 1h 15min and it takes approx. half an hour to move between Auschwitz and Birkenau. The guide on site was very good in English and very knowledgeable. Recommend.

We were picked up on time but the walking and all the explanations were given too fast

Notified in plenty of time when there was a slight change to our pick up time.

Perfectly organized, great driver, amazing guide :)
