We managed to secure the early morning discount which meant we left at 7:05am. This was such a good idea as we were back by 2pm which allowed us to enjoy the rest of our day. Our tour guides and the guide in the camps were full of information which made for a very interesting experience. I would definitely recommend to bring lunch with as there is no time for stopping. Also don’t get the coffee or sausage rolls from the cafe as they aren’t particularly nice. Thanks so much once again.

Wonderful experience! Francesco, our Italian guide, was an added value! He told us about these places with extreme delicacy, making the visit full of reflections. We will keep in our hearts everything we experienced during the day! Everyone should visit these fields once in their life because "knowing is essential". Once again THANK YOU FRANCIS!

An emotionally incredible experience, a visit that everyone should do in their lifetime. We booked the tour in Italian but the day before departure they informed us that the Italian tour would not be available and that an English guide would accompany us (but they would have given us the tour book in Italian, with which in any case you can easily go same). Very punctual departure with a rather large bus, comfortable journey. The guide was very kind and extremely understandable and available for any request for clarification. I will always carry with me the memory of this place and the terrible legacy it bears witness to.
