Top 10 things to do in Wrocław

Passed between kingdoms and countries throughout a turbulent history, Wrocław was one of Central Europe's most culturally diverse cities before it was laid to waste in World War II. Since then, it has rebuilt itself as one of Poland's most fascinating cities!

Super convenient! They called us 24 hours before our trip to confirm the time they were going to pick us up from our hotel in Wroclaw. Bart drove us safely to Auschwitz, instructed us on how the day would go. After seeing Auschwitz 1, he had a lunch prepared for each of us which we ate while he drove us to Auschwitz 2. He waited for our tour to complete and then drove us home! Basically everything was taken care of, all you have to do is show up and they take care of the rest! Highly recommend.

Our driver Machey was prompt, professional and very friendly as he drove us to Auschwitz and back. He answered our questions and took us to some places that was not covered in the tour. Our tour in Auschwitz and then at Burkenau were very educational. Our educator/tour guide was very knowledgeable and patient with us as she explained events. Would definitely recommend.

Great Guide! Julia did an awesome job. We saw all „must see“ places and heard some interesting side facts and legends. The tour was booked in English, but Julia changed to German for our kids. It was a cool trip in this electric car!

+The guide is fluent in English and extremely friendly. +The guide is full of knowledge and experience. +The history is very well explained +We really enjoy the 1-hour trip ,totally worth it !

We enjoyed our private tour of Wroclaw, although if it is supposed to rain you may want to re-schedule as having the plastic rain guards down lessens the experience
