Everything was arranged very well accordingly to program. Thanks to driver Stanislaw that picked us up and dropped us off accordingly to requested address. Visit of Auschwitz 1 was longer and contained much more details than visit of Auschwitz-Birkenau, although territory itself is much bigger at latter. We would prefer that visit of Auschwitz-Birkenau lasted more time too. We recommend to everybody this tour, it is very important to know this ugly part of history in order to save humanity from it in the future.

In one word great! Easy to book and cancel if necessary. Information is clear and contact good. The day itself was well organised. Taxi was a bit later due to circumstances but we were kept informed by SMS and called by the driver. The trip to Auswitch went smoothly and the guide was already there. Then visited Birkenau, first in the taxi and there the same guide was ready again. Very impressive excursion with a guide who told his story respectfully. The only drawback was that there was little time to walk around without a guide, the planning was tight so to speak.

Really great- got picked up outside our hotel drive was shorter than expected! Our tour guide was Mark whose English is very good he made the tour extremely interesting as he knew what he was talking about! Had a really fantastic day! Had 2x 20 minute breaks for drinks/toilets and then dropped back outside hotel! Couldn’t recommend enough :)
