The tour was great, our driver was named Paul. He went the extra mile by telling us information about the areas we travelled to along with some guide books that he provided us with. Paul is a great guy, really engaging and full of knowledge, he made the tour much better for our group. I would recommend this tour for people who don’t want to follow a tour guide all day but want some direction and knowledge of where they are going.

I highly recommend this specific activity and provider. Paul, our driver was excellent! He gave us multiple facts about Auschwitz but also for the places we went by during our drive. Though, we visited Auschwitz during heavy snowfall, he was a careful driver but still got us there in time. Private transportation is also a must because we got to visit everything in our own pace and time.
