Everything was well organized, we expected a bus full of tourists but were picked up by a friendly man in a car who took us to Auschwitz while telling us about Poland. Everything was perfectly arranged on site without waiting times, and returned neatly to the hotel. Super! Auschwitz itself is a sad visit of course but left a huge impression.

Fantastic food and great beer. The tour guide was very knowledgeable about Katowice and Poland, and his English was great. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience Katowice up close and personal.
