I’d thoroughly recommend doing this trip. We were picked from our hotel and then left Warsaw at 6.40. We arrived in Krakow at 9 and were met by the driver who took as a short drive to the old town where we had an hour to walk and have a drink. The journey to Auschwitz by car was around 80 minutes but was very comfortable. The tour itself was very professionally done and the chance to visit the museum and site of the camps is worth it. After the tour we were driven back to old town Krakow where we had 2 hours before we took the train home. We were then met on the platform and driven straight back to our hotel. The museum was a real experience and probably something you’d only ever do once, what made it a real experience was the seamless transfers, god quality transport and the amount of time to enjoy Krakow old town itself. For the money, it’s an excellent deal.

Our tour guide was Phil and he was amazing! He was very enthusiastic to show us around Krakow and clearly knows so many nuggets of information about the Jewish quarter, WWII era Jewish ghetto, and Schindler’s Factory. We really appreciated his time and energy.

Tour was great fun with a wide variety of vodkas tried and a number of snacks provided. Guide (Maja) was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would definitely recommend

Mateusz is a great guide. I found his stories about Krakow very interesting. Thank you very much
